Joseph Goins, Pioneer Among
Newmans Ridge Melungeons

By Ruth Johnson
3705 Bloomingdale Road
Kingsport, Tennessee, 37660

Joseph Goins, a Revolutionary War veteran and my seventh generation grandfather, was born about 1766 in Bedford County, Virginia. Rev. Arthur Hamilton Taylor who researched in Melungia, suggested his birthplace as Albemarle County, Virginia. William P. Grohse, Sneedville historian, reported that he was the son of Joseph Goins, Sr. who also fought in the Revolutionary War and was wounded in battle.

“Joseph Goings” on May 19, 1784 received “4 pounds, 2 shillings, 3 pence” for service in the militia, according to Virginia Payroll Account No. 683.

Joseph Goins was married about 1790 to Millie Loving [Lovin, Loven?] who was born in 1770 in Scotland, according to Rev. Taylor. She was brought to America at the age of six by an aunt who settled in Charleston, South Carolina. William P. Grohse stated that she was born in Bedford County in 1772 to James Loving who was born in 1759 to Abraham Loving. Millie Loving Goins lost three uncles in the Revolutionary War.

In 1793, Joseph Goins was a resident of Fairfax County, Virginia where a daughter was born.

“Joseph Gwinne” was enumerated as the head of a household in the 1830 census of Hawkins County, Tennessee:

“Gwinne, Joseph white male 50-60
white female 50-60
white female 10-15”

“Joseph Gowin, age 70-80,” living alone, was listed in the 1840 census of Hawkins County, page 234. Apparently in 1840 Joseph Goins and Millie Loving Goins were living in separate, adjoining households.

“Joseph Goings” appeared as the head of Household 302-302 in the 1850 census of Hancock County, 33rd subdivision, east part. The family was enumerated November 27, 1850 as:

“Goings, Joseph 84, born in Virginia, cooper, illiterate
Milli A. 80, born in Virginia
Leathey 36, born in North Carolina, female,

Hancock County had been created in 1844 with land from Hawkins County and Claiborne County. Joseph Goins died in 1859 in Hancock County, a nonagenarian. Millie Loving Goins also died there, before 1860.

Children born to them include:

Virginia Jane “Gincie” Goins born in 1793
George Goins born in 1803
Harden Goins born in 1805
Aletha Goins born about 1814
