1758 Henry Going m. Jane Hall in Fairfield County, SC

Henry Going born about 1758 m. Jane Hall in Fairfield County, SC

Henry Going d. abt 1807 and his wife Jane Hall appears to have died before 1800.

Parents:

John Gowing b. 1710 and Mary Keith.

Children:

Laodice “Letty” Goyne 1777–
Hezekiah Goins 1782–
Dillard Going 1791–
Lewis Going 1795–

Siblings:

John Gowen Jr. b. 1730 m. Elizabeth (confirmed child of John Gowing b. 1710)
Susannah Gowen Hubbard b. 1731 (confirmed child of John Gowing b. 1710)
Thomas Gowen b. 1732
William Goyne b. 1733
Amos Goyen b. 1744
Daniel Going b. 1748
Drury Goyen b. 1749
James Goyne b. 1755
Henry Going b. 1758

FACTS: 

Henry Going or Goyen appears to have been born about 1758.  His parents appear to be either Daniel Going b. 1735 and Rebecca, or John Going b. 1710 and Mary Keith Going.  I believe his age and close relationship with Daniel Going b. 1753 indicate they are brothers, so my assumption is that Daniel Going b. 1735 and Rebecca are his parents.

1785: The following is the account settlement for the Revolutionary War service of Henry ‘Going'[5] in the militia of Fairfield County:

1790 Alexander Gowin, Daniel Gowin, Henry Gowin, and John Hall (brother of Henry Gowin’s wife, Jane Hall, were enumerated in the 1790 Census of Fairfield County, South Carolina.

The 1790 census of Camden District, Fairfield County, South Carolina lists the following ‘Going’ individuals:
Name FWM FWM FWFSlaves 16 up under 16

1. Daniel Gowen 1 3 2
2. Alexr Gowin 1 3 5
3. Henry Gowin 1 1 3
4. John Goin 1 1 3
5. Jesse Goin 1 2 1
6. Daniel Goin 1 3 2 2

Of the above:

1. Daniel Gowen is Daniel ‘Going’ Jr, the son of Daniel ‘Going’ Sr.
2. Alexr Gowin is Alexander ‘Going’ Jr, the son of Alexander ‘Going’ Sr.
3. Henry Gowin is likely brother to Daniel Going, so I consider him to be son of Alexander Going b. 1711, but some sources consider him to be a son of John ‘Going’ Jr. He lived in Capt. Turners’ District [MM-38] in Warren [formerly Wilkes] County, Georgia in 1797. He returned to Fairfield County, South Carolina where he died.
4. John Goin is considered to be the son of John ‘Going’ Jr.
5. Jesse Goin has not previously been seen in Fairfield County records. A Jesse ‘GOING’ lived in Wilkes County, Georgia in Capt. Smith’s District [II-3] in 1793. He may be the ‘fourth’ brother of James Goyne.
6. Daniel Goin is Daniel ‘Going’ Sr, the son of Alexander ‘Going’ Sr. He died in Fairfield County, South Carolina.

“Henry Gowen” appeared in Fairfield County Court in the session of June 15, 1791 for a trial of the “State vs. Henry Gowen,” according to Fairfield County Court Minute Book A, page 62. “The indictment was dismissed June 14, 1792 upon the defendant’s paying Costs.

In 1793, John Hall, Henry Goyen and his wife Jane (formerly Jane Hall) agreed to the distribution of John Hall, Jane Hall, Rhoda Hall, and Sarah Hall’s estate.

That all the land should be sold and equally divided between her three daughters, Jane, now Goyen, Rhoda and Sarah and that all her stock of horses, cattle, hogs, except a few of the young cows should be sold to pay her debts, and the remainder to be equally divided between her daughters Sarah and Rhoda, and the youngest heifers to be raised for their equal use and benefit and that she appoint her son, John Hall as manager and superintendant, and we do agree to stand to and abide by the above distribution of our mothers property, and take no advantage the son may give any of us to which agreement we mutually bind ourselves, and our heirs in the penal sum of Fifty Pounds each, given under our hands this 10th day of Nov. 1793.” John Hall, Henry Going, Jane Going ; Test: John Hollis, Charles Johnston ; (Fairfield County, SC – Deed Vol. I – p. 176).  http://www.ken-shelton.com/Fairfield/Deeds/Deed_I/Deed_I_0176a.tif

“Henry Goyen and others” were sued July 18, 1794 by Francis Papp, according to “Fairfield County, South Carolina Min­utes of the County Court, 1785-1799” He was again in court in the July 1798 session.

On April 28, 1795, Fairfield County, SC Deedbook I, pg 378 records Samuel Burk conveying a brown dog named “Watch” to a William Kennedy.  Witnesses were:  John McEwen Jr, and Henry Gowen.  Henry Gowen proved up the document at court.  Fairfield SC.

Henry ‘Going’ lived in Wilkes County, Georgia for about one year in 1797. While in Wilkes County, he lived in the same militia district with members of the family of William Goyne.
In 1797, William ‘Going’ lived in Capt. Turner’s District [MM-49], and was charged with one poll. Other ‘Going’ individuals living in Capt. Turner’s District in 1797 were:

Drury ‘Going’ [MM-65]
Hardy ‘Going’ [MM-140] “Widow” was written by his name.
Henry ‘Going’ [MM-38]
John ‘Going’ [MM-32]
William ‘Going’ [MM-111]

Henry Going is listed on the 1800 US Census in Fairfield Co, SC.  It shows 1 male (Henry Goings) 26-44 yrs, 1 male 10-15 yrs, 3 males under 10, and one female 10-15 yrs.  It does not list a female that would be the age of his spouse, Jane Hall Going, so it is assumed she may have died prior to this time.

Polly Gowen, daughter of Daniel Gowen and Jean Gowen, was born about 1784. She was married about 1801 to Benjamin Harrison. In 1807, he was a witness to the will of Henry Going, regarded as an uncle of Polly Gowen, the brother of her father.
Daniel Going, one of the executors, is possibly a brother to Henry Going. Benjamin Harrison, one of the witnesses to the will, was married prior to 1810 to “Polly Gowens, daughter of Daniel Gowens,” according to “Fairfield County, South Carolina Marriages Implied in Probate Records, 1775-1879” with reference to Apartment 49, File 755.

Letters of Administration granted to John Hall and Daniel Gowin in Fairfield County, South Carolina.  Daniel Gowin is the brother of Henry Gowin, and John Hall’s sister (Nancy Hall) married Henry Gowin.  As was noted in the 1800 US Census in Fairfield Co, SC, it appears Nancy Hall Gowin must have died prior to 1800 as she is not noted on the Census – she is not noted in this will either – so she must have predeceased Henry Going.
