1) BIRTH – 1749 – DEATH – Feb 22, 1796 (See letter below):

1749 birth:  Drury Goyen is born in 1749 most likely in Lunenburg County, Virginia.   Drury Goyen (he also used Going as the spelling for his last name) marries 17-year-old Sarah “Sallie” Baxter in Camden District about 1767-1769.   Sarah Baxter is born about 1750 in Granville County [later Orange County, later Caswell County], North Carolina.

Drury Going’s age is confirmed through a letter from Thomas Baxter Going regarding his family:

Letter from Thomas Baxter Going providing birth year of Drury Going as 1749:
(The contents found at: http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~gowenrf/nl199206.pdf )

“Walnut Grove, Etowah County, Ala.  March 16, 1879 Dear Brother, By the Divine Providence of God, I am again permitted to write to you in answer of yours and also to send your request. We are today enjoying common health and also Dabbs and Inman are well as far as I know. We have had a very cold, wet winter with heavy freezes, but little snow. Gentle spring has come in with mild and pleasant weather.

The farmers are busy engaged in preparing for another crop. There will be more guano used this year than has been any year previous. According to your request, I with pleasure send you a true list of ages as recorded in Father’s Bible.

I will begin with father and mother’s. Isaac Going was born 28th day of April, 1775. Mother, Rebecca Palmer was born 1st day of February 1789 and was married the 21st day of August 1804. Father was baptized in the May meeting of the Pacolet Church in 1803, and also the same year joined the Masonic fraternity. The death of Father and Mother stands recorded thus—- Rebecca Going departed this life the first day of August 1855,  aged 66 years and 6 months. Isaac Going departed this life the 27th day of January 1861, aged 85 years and 9 months and one day.

Our Grandfather, Drury Going departed this life the 22nd day of February 1796 in the 47th year of his age. He died on the road coming home from Charleston with his wagon and team. He lacked 3 days drive of reaching home when he died. He was hauled home and buried at home. Grandmother Sarah Going departed this life 22nd day of April 1820 in the 69th year of her age.

In looking over I find the date of Elisha P. Going’s death as 16th day of July 1864 by a cannon ball near Fussels Mill in the New Market fight, Henry County, Va. Now, dear brother, you can record the dates I have given you in your large family Bible so that your children and grandchildren may hand down their fore father’s posterity. The Going is of Irish, [and Palmer] on Mother’s side English and Dutch.

I was pleased to hear of the well doing of your children. I have not heard a word about Eva. Is she dead? Eunice sent her likeness to her. Eunice says she would like to enjoy Eva’s company again. I am getting old and feeble near 73 years old. I have not had good health since last July. When I feel able, I go out and work a little. I feel better with exercise. I gain, but the least cold throws me back.

I am what is called a Licentiate Preacher. I don’t go about much, but if it is the Lord’s will, when the weather becomes warm I wish to visit the churches around. Religion is at a very low ebb at this time owing to so many divisions of profession–three kinds of Baptists, Missionary, Primitive or commonly called Hard Shells. Two years ago they divided and called it The Church of Christ being wonderfully opposed to all benevolent institutions of the day, especially the Masonic fraternity and Sabbath Schools. Their chief doctrine is that of Election and reprobation and non-fellowship with all who do not coincide with their Views. There are two kinds of Methodists–North and South. They divided during the war– they have no fellowship with each other. Then there are the Seventh Day Adventists and Soul Sleeping Baptists. I could not give a full history of their doctrines in the space I have to write. They make proselytes owing to the unlearned and unread of many of the people.

I hope you and all the boys that have grown up have made to rejoice in Jesus Christ the Savior. Let us pray for each other as all are dead of father’s family that if we never meet again, we will try to meet together with our friends in Heaven. Farewell, Thomas B. Going To W.G.W. Going and children”

1796 Feb 27 death date:  Drury Going appears to have died suddenly and unexpectedly on Februry 27, 1796.  The letter above says he died on the road coming home from Charleston with his wagon and team.  He has no will, meaning he wasn’t fighting a lengthy illness.  His estate is disposed of in probate court.   Probate papers confirm that he died in 1796.  An interesting question posed by researcher Frederick Tucker is “what was Drury doing in Charleston?  Why make the trip in winter?” (My guess is that he may have been visiting a relative in that area (Note: possibly Amos Goyen‘s estate brought him to Charleston – a “James Johnston” and John Turner are noted in 1792 as filing suit against John Burns, the administrator of Amos Goyen’s estate.  Its possible additional issues came up regarding the estate in Charleston – (it was reported by some researchers that John Burns removed to Charleston.  Another possibility is if they were purchasing a slave (hate to say it, but Charleston is where the slave market was). 

DRURY GOING IN THE 1770s:

It appears Drury Goyen must have moved to South Carolina in the late 1760s or early 1770s.

Drury Going appears to have married Sarah Baxter around 1768 (when their first child, Martha, is born).  Researchers have assumed her father is a “Thomas Baxter”.  Interestingly, the following information is found regarding Thomas Baxter in Caswell County, North Carolina (previously Orange County):

1782: grant for “Thomas Baxter” in Caswell Co, NC – downloaded to Dropbox. 1782 Thomas Baxter 300 acres on Moon Cr adj James Ingram and Samuel Paul, Caswell Co NC.

1782 Thomas Baxter 300 acres on Moon Cr adj James Ingram and Samuel Paul in Caswell Co NC

(Note: Drury Goyen was married to a Sarah Baxter (according to other researchers), and Amos Goyen was married to a Mary Baxter.  Interesting that this Thomas Baxter is living on Moon Cr, in Caswell County, NC – adjacent to James Ingram and Samuel Paul – when this was William Going and Alexander Going’s land in 1760-62).  This Thomas Baxter may be related to Sarah and Mary Baxter. 

Compare to 1760 and 1762 grants to William Gowen and Alexander Gowen – they were in Orange County, NC – on Moon Creek, adjacent to a “John” Ingram (possibly James’ father?), and a Samuel Paul:

Drury Going volunteers in 1781 to ride with Revolutionary Brig-Gen. Francis Marion in fighting the British. Marion takes the frontiersmen, and forms them into a force that becomes the pride of the Colonists’ southern campaign. (See Wikipedia article on Francis Marion:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_Marion ).

Drury Going serves in the regiment commanded by Col. John Winn of Winnsboro, South Carolina, according to the research of Carroll Heard Goyne, Jr.

The “Swamp Fox” repeatedly led his rapid-deployment brigade in daring raids against the superior British forces, exacted heavy losses upon them and then escaped into the swamps where the English were unable to follow. They had remarkable successes in battles at Georgetown, Ft. Watson, Ft. Motte and Eutaw Springs, lifting the morale of the Americans who were generally being defeated everywhere else. Their spectacular success in the Battle of Parker’s Ferry in 1782 resulted in a Congressional medal for Marion’s men.

Battle of Eutaw Springs is in September 1781 at the Ninety Six in South Carolina (close to Drury Goyen’s home – these battles may have been catalysts for Drury Going to join the war effort – or he may have already been fighting):  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Eutaw_Springs

In a letter addressed to Alfred Elijah Going, Evelyn Somerville, a descendant, wrote:

“In the first federal census of South Carolina, 1790, the Goings lived on one side, the Loves on the other of Col. Aaron Lockert at Lockert Shoals, East Bank, then in Chester County, South Carolina.  The community was known as early as 1755 as Love’s Ford on Broad River, a mile and a half from Turkey Creek, then Craven County, North Carolina.  Capt. James Love, Jr. married Col. Lockert’s second daughter, Janet.  Job Going married the Colonel’s third daughter, Rebecca, while Drennan Love, son of James Love, Jr, married a daughter of Sarah Going Cook, sister to Job Going

We are unable to find bible or other records of the parents of your ancestor, Job Going [and my ancestor, Sarah] except the death of their mother, April 22, 1822.  Sarah Baxter, thought to be the daughter of Thomas Baxter as the Christian name “Thomas Baxter” occurs over again in her numerous descendants.  The 1790 census gives the head of this family as “Drury Goins,” which must have been the name of “Sally” Baxter’s husband unless he had died and there was a son named Drury. Anyhow this family of Drury Goins was the only one of the name in Chester in 1790 census and none in the counties of York and Union, adjoining this neighborhood, and the family consisted of 2 white males over 16, 4 white females and 6 slaves.  In Caswell County, North Carolina tax lists was a Thomas Baxter, who could have either a father or a brother to “Sally” Baxter.  Her son, Thomas Baxter Going, became a clergyman, according to Day C. Love who went to school with his sons at Crawford, Mississippi in the early ’50s and went from there to Texas.

OTHER DRURY’s:

 (Click on the following link to compare various “Drury Goyen” [Going, Goin, etc] living in Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, etc.):    https://goyengoinggowengoyneandgone.com/1749-drury-going-goyen/various-drury-names-with-goyen-going-gowen-goyne-etc-surnames/

Edits:  Removed John Going born January 10, 1774 from son of Drury Goyen.  Thanks for the heads-up from Frederick Tucker.  I reviewed the probate paperwork and verified that John Going is not mentioned in Drury Goyen’s probate papers – there were a couple entries where Job Going looked like it was spelled John, but when I reinspected the probate papers, it was obvious that it was Job, not John.  John is not mentioned in Elijah’s probate papers, nor is he mentioned in Sarah’s will or probate.  He is not mentioned in any of the deed conveyances of Drury or any of his confirmed children.  There is no evidence that Drury Going had a son named John – so I’ve removed him from the list of children here and will be updating other pages to reflect the same.   I’ll revisit John Going who married Mildred Eubanks and see where he belongs at a later date.

I also removed Elizabeth Going as a daughter of Drury Going because it turns out her maiden name was not Going at all – her name is Elizabeth Estes who was married to John Lockert.  The Going, Lockert, and Estes families showed up in eachother’s transactions very often, so its understandable why she was assumed to be a Going, but William Estes’ probate papers are very clear, his daughter “Betsy” (Elizabeth) Estes is who married to John Lockert according to his probate papers and his will in 1807 in Chester Co, SC.

 

PARENTS of Drury Goyen: (unknown – best guesses):

(Not known – no documents found to date confirm who Drury Going’s parents were.  Due to Y-DNA results, the most likely parents of Drury Goyen (or Going) are listed at the bottom of this page).

Thomas Going b. abt 1720 (1st choice:  alternative parent.  Y-DNA match – Thomas Going is son of John Going and Mary Keith Going – which could mean that John Going and Mary Keith Going are actually Drury Going’s grandparents rather than parents)

John Going b. abt 1700 and Mary Keith (2nd choice: alternative parent. Y-DNA match – there are no known documents verifying Drury’s parents.  Y-DNA verifies that the descendants of Drury Goyen b. 1749 have the same paternal ancestor as Thomas Goin).

Alexander Going b. abt 1710-15 – d. bef. Feb 1775, m. Sophia ? (3rd choice: alternative parents – Y-DNA match.  Alexander Going’s children appeared to be close to John Going’s children (1st cousins.  Often they lived next to eachother and it is difficult to determine which parents their descendants belonged to).

John Going b. abt 1729 is another son of John Going b. 1700.  His age makes him a possible candidate as well.  Tracking his documentation and where he lived has been difficult.  I am in the middle of reworking his page – much of it is not correct and is in the process of being updated.  I have been unable to document who his children were – if any, but he is also a possibile parent of Drury, if he had children.

(All the above are Y-DNA matches to Drury Goyen/Going’s line – their confirmed descendants’ Y-DNA match Drury Going’s descendants.  They are also the correct age to be the parent of Drury Going b. 1749.  The only document connection I could find to Drury Going with any of the three above was to William Going b. 1733 – the confirmed son of John Going b. 1700 and the brother of Thomas Going b. 1720.  This leads me to believe that either John Going b. 1700 or Thomas Going b. 1720 are the most likely choices as parent of Drury Going).

Clusters of Going families that lived nearby in the 1750s are listed below.  One of these lines is likely Drury Going/Goyen’s line:

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). (YDNA match)

2) 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). (YDNA match)

3)  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). (Unknown YDNA results for descendants)

4) 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). (unknown YDNA results for descendants)

5) 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). (Unknown YDNA results for descendants)

6) 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). (Unknown YDNA results for descendants).

7)  William Gowen and his family who lived in the Bedford County, Virginia   area.    (The parental line of this William Gowen is unknown).  (YDNA does not match Drury Going/Goyen b. 1749’s line).

(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).

SIBLINGS (unknown – its possible Drury was an only child, or it is possible the following people were siblings of his):

(The following siblings are possible siblings of Drury Goyen):

John Gowen Jr. b. abt 1720 m. Elizabeth (confirmed child of John Going Sr b. abt 1700 – YDNA match with descendants)
Thomas Gowen b. abt 1722 (confirmed child of John Going Sr b. abt 1700 – YDNA match with descendants)
Susannah Gowen Hubbard b. abt 1725 – 1731 (confirmed child of John Going Sr b. abt 1700)
William Goyne b. 1728 – 1733 (confirmed child of John Going Sr b. abt 1700 – YDNA match with descendants)
Amos Goyen b. 1744 (possible sibling of Drury)
Drury Goyen b. 1749 (possible sibling of Drury)
James Goyne b. 1755 (possible sibling of Drury – YDNA match with descendants)

2) Drury Goyen’s document connection to William Goyne/Going:  

Georgia / Alabama connections for Drury Goyen to William Goyne (in addition to connections to William Gladden and property on Wateree Creek in South Carolina:

Some of Drury Goyen’s descendants and relatives stayed in South Carolina – but many soon moved to Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and Mississippi.

Daughter, Martha Going Tindall – m. Larkin Asa Tindall – moved to Warren Co, Ga in 1790s – land grant there in 1799. Moved back to SC around 1810 for short time before moving to Alabama.

Uncle – William Goyne, and his entire family move to Warren Co, Ga. Several of his children continue on to Jefferson Co, Tuscaloosa, Pickens Co area of Alabama – in same area that Drury Goyen’s children went (1st cousins)

1784 – Drury Goyen buys land about 30 miles closer to brother William Goyne, on Turkey Cr in the northwester border of Chester SC (Chester Co, Union Co and York Co) (abt 35-40 miles south of William Goyne, and Alexander Goyen Jr.)

1789 – Drury Goyen buys land on Mill Cr. on the northern border of SC – in York County – abt 20-25 miles from William Goyne in NC.

1793 – William Goyne shows up on tax lists in Warren Co, Ga..

1799 – Martha Going (Drury’s oldest child), follows her uncle William Goyne, and moves with her husband – Larkin “Asa” Tindall – to Warren Co, Ga.

William Gladden’s land transactions and proximity to John Gowen Sr (Drury Goyen’s possible father), with William Goyne (Drury’s possible brother), and Gladden’s transactions with Alexander Gowen (Drury’s uncle) helped piece together Drury Goyen as likely related William Goyne.

1767 Jan 6:   William Goyne (listed as “Going”) receives 300 acres on Wateree Creek in Craven, SC.   Drury Going either goes with William to work and live on the land, or arrives shortly after.   (Plat#) S213184000900095 Colonial Plat Books (copy series) 8 Bit Gray 300 dpi Scanned by Judith Smithhttp://www.archivesindex.sc.gov/onlinearchives/Thumbnails.aspx?recordId=100733

It appears that William Gladden is a family friend of the Gowen family.  He lives next to the Going/Gowen’s in Orange County, North Carolina, and follows William Gowen (and Drury Gowen) to South Carolina.  There is an “Ann Glading (Gladden) who is listed as a witness to Catherine Gowen Padderson’s will in 1739 in Brunswick County (John Gowen Sr’s mother’s will).   Truro Parish (back in Fairfax County, Va) lists a William Gladden on multiple transactions in their Vestry Book during the early to mid 1700s in Fairfax County – about the same time the Gowen’s were there.  William Gladden has land transactions with the Gowen family on several occasions in North Carolina and South Carolina, including the following transactions.  It appears there is some family connection with the Gladden and Gowen families (See:  page for William Goyne – and his 1760s land transactions in Orange County, NC – involving William Gladden, and his road work with William Gladden in Lunenburg County Virginia in 1757 – Note that William Gladden also was listed as working with John Going on the roads in Lunenburg adjacent to John Going Sr in Orange County, NC 1762, and adjacent to Alexander Going in Orange County, NC in the 1760s).

    My mother was Barbara Going Wrenn. I have been searching for a while now about the parents of Drury. I was looking on ancestry and it shows that Mary Keith died in 1745. How can she be his mother if Drury was born in 1749, after her death? Do you have any other information that would connect Mary Keith to Drury? My mothers father was Walter Leroy Going, and I believe that I can get my family tree to Drury and then it kind of stops.
    Thanks,
    Linda

      Linda,

      Thanks for the input. I don’t have a smoking gun on the exact parents of Drury. The Y-DNA match likely places William Going b. abt 1682 as his grandfather or great-grandfather. This is not guaranteed. It is possible that William Going’s brother, James Going b. abt 1683, had children that have not been accounted for. There were several “orphans” bound out in the 1730’s to 1740 that could have been children of James Going b. abt 1683 – no confirmation on this – but its something to keep an eye open for when looking at records. If this is the case, then William Going b. abt 1682 would be a great uncle, and Thomas Going b. abt 1660 would be a great grandparent or great great grandparent of Drury Going.

      1) Drury Going’s parents: As I said above, I too am unsure of Drury Going’s parents. The Y-DNA match confirms he is from the same family of William Going b. abt 1682, but that doesn’t tell me who Drury’s mother and father are.

      a) I “believe” the most likely parent, based on other Going’s living nearby, is Thomas Going b. abt. 1717-1722 (Thomas is a son of John Going and Mary Keith Going). My Y-DNA matches a few different people who are confirmed descendants of Thomas Going. If this is the case, then Drury is the grandson of John Going and Mary Keith Going.

      b & c) The other two possible parents of Drury (I believe) are John Going and Mary Keith Going b. abt 1700 or his brother Alexander Going and his wife Sophia (or Suffiah) b. abt 1705.

      2) Death of Mary Keith. I don’t show Mary Keith dying in 1745. In fact, I don’t show her dying before 1761. I believe Ancestry.com must be wrong with that death date. I show the following transactions for Mary Keith Going beyond 1745: (See page on this website for John Going b. abt 1700).

      a) 1746 June 9 – John Gowen and wife Mary convey 1 half tract of land equaling 268 acres to Edward Kirkland . . . Being a tract of land granted to Richard Kirkland decd, and Conrelius Keif, father of said Goen’s wife. Deed Book B part 1, page 32-33.

      b) 1746 July 14 – John Gowen sells 144 acres in Truro Parish he had received to Bond Veal, Mary Keith Gowen relinquished her dower rights. Deed Book B, page 24.

      c) 1761 Feb 14 – “John Gowing, Sr. of Lunenburg Co, Virginia and Mary, his wife” . . . convey land to “our beloved son, William Gowing”. Deed Book 6 page 378-379.

      d) 1761 July 7 – “John Going, Sr. and Mary his wife” . . . convey land to “our well beloved son, John Going, Jr.” in Lunenburg Co, Va. Deed Book 6 page 379.

      I have not found a death date for either John Going b. 1700 or for his wife, Mary Keith Going (so I’m not sure when they died), but with the above transactions involving both John Going, Sr. and Mary his wife beyond 1745, that death date Ancestry.com has of 1745 must be incorrect. They must have lived until at least 1761, possibly longer.

      Drury Going’s land records seem to indicate he was living on land previously owned by William Going b. abt 1728-33. William Going’s will confirms he has a son named Drury, but his son named Drury is born about 1766 – so it would seem highly unlikely William would name two of his sons Drury. My guess is William Going b. abt 1728-33 and Drury Going b. 1749 were either brothers or uncle/nephew. If brothers, then John Going and Mary Keith Going would be parents of Drury Going b. 1749. I think its more likely they were uncle/nephew, and Thomas Going b. 1717-22 (William Going’s brother) was the father of Drury Going b. 1749.
