(Link to page on various William “Going’s” and other variations of last name.  See this page to compare this William Goyens to other William Going variations that were in the VA, NC, or SC areas in the 1700s.  List is not complete, but I’ve listed those I know about so far:  https://goyengoinggowengoyneandgone.com/various-william-goings-different-ones/ ).

FACTS: 

There appear to be more than one James Goin in Granville Co, NC.  One James is “insolvent”, the other one is buying up and acquiring real estate (in other words, not insolvent) – both have a son named William . . .  One is reported mulattoe, the other is reported white.  This is also true for Thomas, Michael, William, Joseph – all have multiple people with same names on same years.  Some are mulattoe, some are white – the chart and tithe list below helps sort them out (who is who).

GRANVILLE COUNTY, North Carolina:

Granville County, North Carolina:  Granville County is especially confusing – it has at least two separate Going families living in the same county with several people having the same names.  I have created a chart based on tithe records I have located to attempt to differentiate the families:

Granville County NC tithe chart for black and/or mulatto and white Going families

This chart is based on the following tithe records:

Census and Tithe Repts: Blacks and Mulattos

Michael Gowen appeared in the 1750 tax list of Granville County, paying a tax on two tithables.
