LOUISA CO, VA:

Valouisa.jpg

It appears that by 1772, David Going has moved one county over from Hanover Co, Va, to Louisa Co, Va.

David Going was taxable in his own household in Fredericksville Parish in 1772.

David Going was a taxable in the household of Pouncy Bunch in 1774. Louisa Co, Va.

In 1775 David Going was recorded in the household of his brother, Moses Going, according to “Louisa County, Virginia Tithables” in 1775.

In 1778 David Going was recorded in the household of Joseph Bunch.

It appears that David Going Sr, then moved from Louisa Co, Va. back across Hanover Co, and one county south to Henrico Co, Va.  The David Going Sr living in Henrico Co, Va’s date of birth is likely between 1721-1736 based on tithe records, and when his son, David Going Jr, became old enough to be placed on tithes.

1780 Oct 4 – On October 4, 1780, in Hali­fax County, “Shadrack Going,” “David Going” and Peter Wil­son witnessed the will of Stephen Wilson. The will was proved June 20, 1782 “by two witnesses [unnamed].” Shadrach Going appeared in the 1782 tax list of Halifax County with 12 in his family. “Shadrack Going,” with 10 members in his household, appeared in the 1785 census of Halifax County, along with John Going, four members and David Going, four members, assumed to be his sons.
