1773 Alexander Gowen, Sr, Alexander Gowen, Emos [Amos] Gowen, Daniel Gowen and John Gowen – several persons signed a petition for the partition of the north part of Orange County. Among them were Alexander Gowen, Sr, Alexander Gowen, Emos [Amos] Gowen, Daniel Gowen and John Gowen, Orange Co, NC

Amos Gowen, son of John Gowing Sr (b. 1710), was born about 1744, in Lunenburg County, Virginia or Orange County, North Carolina.”Amos Goyne was born in North Carolina [possibly Orange County] of parents unknown,” according to a descendant, Lucile H. Sanders of Buffalo, Texas in a letter written August 1, 1989.

In 1773, he joined other members of his family in signing a petition for the partitioning of Orange County, according to “Colonial Records of North Carolina, 1771-1775” Volume 9. His signature was written “Emus Gowen,” suggesting that it was written for him.

He was married to Mary Anne Baxter in North Carolina in 1779 and removed soon afterward to Fairfield, South Carolina where a son, Amos Gowen, Jr. was born the following year.  His brother, Jeremiah Gowen was born there in 1782.

Among his estate papers was a note dated November 15, 1779 cosigned by “Amos Goyne” and “John Goyne,” identified as his older brother.   Another note date February 24, 1780 showed that the signature of Amos Gowen was an “A.” (click photo to enlarge)

Part 3:

Amos Goyne The first sighting of this name is in the 1773 petition for the partition of Orange County, North Carolina. It was written “Emus Gowen.”32 The estate file of Amos Goyne [spelled variously Going, Goyen and Goyne in the file] is in the South Carolina Archives. Apparently, Amos died in 1785. Contained within the file is a note dated 15 Nov. 1779, co-signed by John Goyne and Amos Goyne. Another note dated 24 February 1780, was signed by Amos Goyen with his mark of an “A”.33
On 25 January 1806, a list of letters remaining in the Nashville, Tennessee Post Office was published in the “Tennessee Gazette.” Among them was one addressed to Amos Goyne.24 On 25 July 1806, Amos Goyne signed as a witness to a marriage in Sumner County, Tennessee.35 In the War of 1812, Amos Goyne, Sergeant, served in the Tennessee Infantry under the command of Col.

His service was for the period: 28 December 1814 to 10 March 1815.39 Amos Goyne was enumerated in the 1820 United States Census of Rapides Parish, Louisiana. “Mr. Amos Goyne, of the State of Tennessee, died in Rapides Parish, Louisiana on 9 October 1820,” according to his obituary in the 14 October 1820 edition of the “Louisiana Herald,” Alexandria, Louisiana.40 On 4 November 1821 Amos Goings was married to Parthena Dixon in Amite County, Mississippi.41 In 1825 Amos Goynes was listed in the tax list of Copiah County, Mississippi, p 39.

Goyne was the son of William Goyne who made his will in 1816 in Warren County, Georgia, and Agnes “Nancy” [Stroder] Goyne.42
Daniel Goyne Daniel Going’s name appears among Virginia’s colonial soldiers in 1756. In that year he was described as
being age 27, height 5’4″, a planter, or a hatter, of Virginia. He had light brown hair and a long thin visage. He was from Stafford County, Virginia, and served in Capt. Cocke’s Company.

Amos Goyen (Emus) b. ? d. 1785 (Orange County, NC)
______________________________________________________

I was very interested in Carroll Heard Goyne, Jr.’s information on Amos Goyne and would like to add a few items. The Amos Goyne who died in Fairfield County, South Carolina in 1785 was the first husband of one of my maternal greatgreatgreatgreatgrandmothers. Amos Goyne, Sr. married Mary Anne Baxter in Fairfield County in 1779. Their son Amos, Jr. was born there in 1780, and their son Jeremiah Goyne was born there in 1782.
According to family tradition, Amos Sr. was “killed in the field by Tories in 1785.” Later the same year his widow married Dr. John Byrns and the family relocated to Charleston where several Byrns children were born, and Dr. John Byrns died there in a yellow fever epidemic in 1801. About 1805,
Mary Anne [Baxter] Goyne Byrns and her children moved to Cairo, Sumner County, Tennessee.

Jeremiah Goyne and his halfbrother, James Byrns were in Robertson County by 1807. Jeremiah married but I have never been able to determine his wife’s name. The minutes of Red River Baptist Church [near the present site of Adams, Tennessee] for September 1816 state that “Brother and Sister J. Goyne were dismissed by letter.” I know nothing of them after that date.
Amos Goyne, Jr. left Sumner County and went to Rapides Parish, Louisiana where he died in 1820. He was a bachelor, and his Byrns relatives fell heir to his estate left in Tennessee. Amos’s half brother James Byrns was the father of Susan Emily [Byrns] Jackson who was the mother of Julia [Jackson] Morris who was the mother of Henry Wilford Morris who was the father of Julia [Morris] Gowan [my mother]. Amos, Jr. was also the great uncle of Joseph Wellington Byrns who was Speaker of the U. S. House of Representatives under FDR. I’d very much like to hear from anyone who knows anything further on Jeremiah or Amos Goyne, Jr.
