Goyen (Gowen), Thomas Shurley, and Mary Hill,” according to Fairfield County deed records.   (http://www.archivesindex.sc.gov/onlinearchives/search.aspx

On June 10, 1809 Ed Tidwell received a grant of 68 acres of land adjacent to Moses Hollis’ line, Mary Hill’s line, McCully’s line and William Gowin’s line in South Carolina.  (The William Gowin listed here is either the original William Gowin – and is listed in error, as he has moved to Georgia by this time, or this is one of the other William Goyen/Gowin’s in the area – son of either the original William Goyne or his cousin Daniel Goyen’s son, both had land on the Wateree, and both had sons named William in the late 1700s).

On February 22, 1832, Moses Hollis (son of Moses Hollis Jr) appointed Thomas Lumpkin to receive from Joseph Caldwell (Moses Hollis’ guardian) any benefits he had from his father, Moses Hollis Jr’s estate. Peter Hollis and Thomas B. Lumpkin witnessed the power of attorney. The power of attorney was recorded in Fairfield District, South Carolina on May 29, 1832.

(It is unclear from the document if the young Moses Hollis is still a minor at the time this power of attorney was written.  He states in the power of attorney that he wants Thomas Lumpkin to collect from “Joseph Caldwell my guardian”.  The wording here seems like Joseph Caldwell was still Moses Hollis’ legal guardian when this was written.  The problem with this is that if Moses Hollis was still a minor, he would not have the legal capacity to hire Thomas Lumpkin to give him the power of attorney – he would have needed to petition the court for a change in guardian or appointment of a new guardian – in other words, the power of attorney would have no effect if he was still a minor, as minors do not have the ability to sign contracts, etc.   So the document actually may or may not indicate Moses Hollis was a a minor at this time.   We need further information on this to clarify).
