From GRF Newsletter Aug 1994:

Revolutionary Sherwood Going Served in 14th Virginia Regt.
Sherwood Going, “free colored” was born about 1756,
probably in Louisa County, Virginia. He was identified as the
son of Agnes Going in “Free African Americans in North
Carolina and Virginia” written by Paul Heinegg. The Louisa
County Court on April 10, 1770 ordered that the church
wardens of Trinity Parish “bind out all her children under 21
years except the youngest.” “Sherrod Going” was bound out
to William Phillips.

On February 12, 1776, Agnes Going appeared in court to file a
complaint about the ill-treatment “Sherrod Going was
receiving from his master, William Phillips.”

He enlisted for three years service in 1777 in the Fourteenth
Virginia Regiment under command of Col. Charles Lews and
re-enlisted in 1780 for an additional 18 months, according to
statements in his pension application dated October 9, 1828 in
Albemarle County, Virginia..

“Sharod Going” endorsed the Revolutionary pension
application of Charles Barnett, “mulatto” who was born about
1764 in Albemarle County. Charles Barnett declared that he
had “enlisted in the Seventh Virginia Regiment at
Charlottesville.” “Sharod Going” corroborated his statement,
and in his endorsement mentioned, “I was with him at
Chesterfield Court House.”

Sherwood Going was a resident of Albemarle County in 1787
when he appeared on the tax list there, taxable on “one tithe,
two horses and four cattle.”

“Sherod Gowin” received a land warrant in the Military
District of Ohio, however it is believed that he sold the
warrant rather than move to the new area.

The pension application of “Sherard Going” and that of his
wife “Susannah Simmons Going” were abstracted in “Virginia
Pension Abstracts of Revolutionary War, War of 1812 and Indian
Wars,” Volume 19 by Lucy Kate McGhee. “Sherod Going”
was married to Susannah Simmons June 5, 1791 in Albemarle
County by Parson William Woods, according to the
pension application. A copy of their marriage certificate
certified by the Albemarle County Clerk was attached in
substantiation.

In the application given to the court at Charlottesville, he
stated, “I am a colored man and very illiterate” and that he had
lost his discharge. He stated that he had a wife and two boys,
“a boy about the age of 8 or 9 and another about the age of 10
or 12.” He reported that he owned 200 acres of mountainous
land with 30 or 40 acres cleared. He was a day laborer and
owned one cow. His application was endorsed by an affidavit
signed by A. C. Nanis.

Sherwood Going was enumerated as the head of a household
of 12 “other free” people in the census of 1810 of Albemarle
County. “Sherod Gowing” appeared as the head of a ninemember
household in a cluster of 12 Gowing households of
“free colored” in the 1820 census of Albemarle County, page
8A. Three members of his family were engaged in
agriculture. The household was rendered as:

“Sherwood Gowen, free colored male, 55-100” reappeared in
the 1830 census of Albemarle County, page 252 as the head of
a household composed of 10 free colored individuals.

Sherwood Going died September 4, 1837, about age 81.

Susannah Simmons Gowin made an application for a
reinstatement of a widow’s pension November 27, 1841. In it
she stated that her age was “about 70,” that she had lived in
Albemarle County all of her life and she was the “widow of
Sherod Gowin, deceased.” She declared that she had received
a widow’s pension from the date of her husband’s death
September 4, 1837 through November 23, 1837. An
endorsement attached to her application read, “She is a
coloured woman of high respectability and her declaration is
entitled to full credit.”

From GRF Newsletter 1998:

Sherwood Going Fought the British at Charlottesville

Army life was better than farm life for Sherwood Going, Mulatto/Melungeon Revolutionary soldier from Louisa County, Virginia. To escape an unhappy apprenticeship, he had enlisted in the Fourteenth Virginia Regiment in neighboring Albemarle County in 1777. Col. Charles Lews had led his militiamen against the British at Chesterfield Courthouse where they were soundly defeated.
The Fourteenth was pulled back to Charlottesville in Albemarle County and assigned to guard duty. Gen. John Burgoyne and 4,000 of his British troops which were captured at Saratoga were marched to Charlottesville and placed in the custody of Col. Lews and his regiment.

Life was hard for Sherwood Going growing up in colonial Louisa County, Virginia. He was born about 1756 to Agnes Going, a “free colored” single woman struggling to care for eight children. On January 9, 1743, the Louisa County Court ordered that “she receive 25 lashes on her bare back for having a bastard child.”

On April 10, 1770, the church wardens of Trinity Parish were ordered to bind out all her children under 21 years, except the youngest” [David Going]. David Going was later enumerated as “white” in the Virginia census, suggesting to some researchers that the family was Melungeon.

Sherwood Going was bound out to William Phillips. On February 12, 1776 Agnes Going appeared in court to file a complaint about the ill-treatment “Sherrod Going was receiving from his master, William Phillips.”

That’s when Sherwood Going enlisted for three years service in the Fourteenth Virginia. He re-enlisted in 1780 for an additional 18 months, according to statements in his pension application dated October 9, 1828 in Albemarle County.

“Sharod Going” endorsed the Revolutionary pension applica-tion of Charles Barnett, “mulatto” who was born about 1764 in Albemarle County. Charles Barnett declared that he had “enlisted in the Seventh Virginia Regiment at Charlottesville.” “Sharod Going” corroborated his statement, and in his en-dorsement mentioned, “I was with him at Chesterfield Court House.”

Three miles east of Charlottesville was located Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson, and two miles farther was Ash Lawn, the home of James Monroe. Sir Banastre Tarleton, British commander in Louisa County, devised a plan to raid into Albemarle County to capture Jefferson. Jack Jouett, one of the militiamen, overheard the plan of the raid in a tavern and rode all night. He arrived at Monticello ahead of Tarleton’s forces and alerted Jefferson in time to make his escape. The Fourteenth was unable to check the British, and the marauders laid waste to the countryside and burned the Charlottesville Courthouse and its public records.

After the war, “Sherard Gowen” received a grant September 30, 1783 of 196 acres “on the waters of Buck Mountain Creek,” according to “Virginia Land Grants, 1782-1783,” page 575. Sherrod Going was a resident of Albemarle County in 1787 when he appeared on the tax list there, taxable on “one tithe, two horses and four cattle.”

“Sherod Gowin” received a land warrant in the Military District of Ohio, however he sold the warrant rather than move to the new area.

“Sherwood Gowing” was married June 5, 1791 to Susannah Simmons in Stokes County, North Carolina, according to “Stokes County, North Carolina Marriages, 1783-1850.” “Sherod Going” was married to Susannah Simmons June 5, 1791 in Albemarle County by Parson William Woods, according to her pension application. A copy of their marriage certificate certified by the Albemarle County Clerk was attached in substantiation. No explanation is found for the two different marriage records.

The pension application of “Sherard Going” and that of his wife “Susannah Simmons Going” were abstracted in “Virginia Pension Abstracts of Revolutionary War, War of 1812 and Indian Wars,” Volume 19 by Lucy Kate McGhee.

In the application given to the court at Charlottesville, he stated, “I am a colored man and very illiterate” and that he had lost his discharge. He stated that he had a wife and two boys, “a boy about the age of 8 or 9 and another about the age of 10 or 12.” He reported that he owned 200 acres of mountainous land with 30 or 40 acres cleared. He was a day laborer and owned one cow. His application was endorsed by an affidavit signed by A. C. Nanis.

“Sherrod Going” was enumerated as the head of a household of 12 “other free” people in the census of 1810 of Albemarle County. “Sherod Gowing” appeared as the head of a nine-member household in a cluster of 12 Gowing households of “free colored” in the 1820 census of Albemarle County, page 8A. Three members of his family were engaged in agriculture. The household was rendered as:

“Gowing, Sherod free colored male over 45
free colored female over 45
free colored male 14-26
free colored male 14-26
free colored female 0-14
free colored male 0-14
free colored female 0-14
free colored male 0-14
free colored male 0-14”

He reappeared in the 1830 census of Albemarle County, page 252 as the head of a household composed of 10 free colored individuals:

“Gowen, Sherwood free colored male 55-100
free colored female 36-55
free colored male 36-55
free colored male 24-36
free colored male 24-36
free colored female 24-36
free colored male 24-36
free colored male 0-10
free colored male 0-10
free colored male 0-10”

Sherwood Going died September 4, 1837, about age 81. “Susannah Simmons Gowin” made an application for a rein-statement of a widow’s pension November 27, 1841. In it she stated that her age was “about 70,” that she had lived in Albe-marle County all of her life and she was the “widow of Sherod Gowin, deceased.” She declared that she had received a widow’s pension from the date of her husband’s death Septem-ber 4, 1837 through November 23, 1837. An endorsement at-tached to her application read, “She is a coloured woman of high respectability and her declaration is entitled to full credit.”

Names of children born to Sherwood Going and Susannah Simmons Going are unknown, but the unique given names “Sherwood” and “Sherrod” were perpetuated in Brunswick and Greensville Counties, Virginia; in Hawkins and Roane Counties, Tennessee and in Wilkes County, Georgia where Moses Going, older brother of Sherwood, had located.
