(Info from GRF):

Drury Gowen, [James5, Edward, Jr4, Edward3, William2, Mihil1] son of James Gowen, was born about 1748, probably in Granville County. His father moved back to Brunswick County, Virginia about 1762. Drury Gowen was married about 1769, wife’s name unknown. When Greensville County was organized from Brunswick County in 1781, Drury was living in the new county.
“Drury Going” was enumerated as the head of a household of four in the 1783 census of Greensville County, page 55, adjacent to Thomas Going, according to “Heads of Families, Virginia, 1790.”
“Drury Going” was a taxpayer in Greensville County in 1787, according to “The 1787 Census of Virginia.” page 778. “Drury Going” was bondsman for the marriage of Robert Brooks Corn to Jinsey Jeffers March 26, 1795 in Greensville County. Robert Brooks Corn had been bondsman for the marriage of Mark Going, son of Drury Gowen, September 29, 1794. “Mark Going” appeared as a taxpayer in adjoining Southampton County in 1830, rendering a tax on “three pigs and Indian land.” For him to have Indian land, his mother would have had to have been a member of the Nottaway Indian tribe, a group that observed matriarchal succession.
Drury Gowen was regarded by Paul Heinegg as possibly the father of:

Edmund Going born about 1770

Sherwood Going born about 1772

Allen Going born about 1773

Mark Going born about 1775

The clusters of Going families that lived nearby in the 1750s were:

1) John Going b. about 1700 who married Mary Keith – his family lived in Lunenburg County, Virginia in the 1750s – in an area that later became Mecklenburg County, Virginia (This appears to be the John Going who was the son of William Going b. abt 1681 of Stafford County, Virginia).
2)  Drury Going and James Going who lived in Brunswick County, Virginia that later becomes Greensville County, Virginia.  (The parental line of Drury and James Going is unknown).
3) Edward Going, Michael Going, Thomas Going, and Joseph Going who were living further south in Granville County, North Carolina around the Tar River and Taylor’s Creek area (this appears to the be group of Going’s who came from Henrico and Hanover County, Virginia).
4) Alexander Going and his family who were living in the Orange County, North Carolina area.  (Alexander Going was another child of William Going b. 1681 of Stafford County, Virginia).
5)  William Gowen and his family who lived in the Bedford County,Virginia area.  (The parental line of this William Gowen is unknown).
6) William Going m. to Anna Statia Sullivan, Moses Going, and Aaron Going living in Goochland County, Virginia.  (The parental line of this William Going is unknown).
7) William Gowen and his family that lived in the “Grassy Creek” area of Granville County, North Carolina.  (The parental line of the “Grassy Creek” Going family is unknown).

(Note re Going/Gowen lines:  At least some of the Going/Gowen lines appear to have come out of Gloucester County and New Kent County, Virginia.  Unfortunately, records before the 1860s in Gloucester County, Virginia, and New Kent County, Virginia, have been destroyed.  Some state-wide records prior to the 1860s from those counties, for land grants, indicate that some Going families were living in those counties.  But since the county records were destroyed, it might not be possible to piece together where several of the above Going lines came from).
