1735 to 1740 James Going Sr. in Henry Co and Patrick Co, Va

James Going Sr. in Henry Co and Patrick Co, Va (b. 1728-1738)

Parents:

Unk

Children: 

James Going Jr. in Patrick Co, Va (b. 1758-1762)

Siblings:  Unknown, but it is possible that John Gowen, James Gowen and David Gowen were siblings as they all arrived in the same area at the same time (along Spoon Creek/Blackberry Creek area – see map below). Shadrach was in the same area – and may possibly be related to this group as well – Siblings are not confirmed, but worth investigating.
