Elijah Goyen and Doshea Bland have two known children together – Sarah Goyen born about 1798, and Drury B. Goyen born about 1800.

Children of Doshea Bland and John Plaxco

Elvira Plaxco b. abt 1808-1809 (married Thompson McCluney)

Children of Elvira Plaxco and Thompson McCluney:

Adeline McCluney b. 1829
John McCluney b. 1830
Samuel Thomas McCluney b. 1832
Thaddeus Sobieski McCluney b. 1836


Elijah Going’s estate pays out to “widow’s part”, and “childrens part”:

1808 Going, Elijah accts to be paid Chester SC note saying widows part and childrens part

John Plaxco, husband of Docea Bland – appointed as Drury B. Goyne “guardian” – 3 months before his mother, Sarah Goyen, died in June of 1820 – done to protect his rights to the estate I believe).

1820 Mar 27 Goyen, Drury York w John Plaxco as guardian of Sarah Goings prbate June 5

(April 3, 1815 – George Plaxco appointed guardian – Sarah Goyen (matriarch of the Goyen estate) wrote her will in 1814 – so she must have been ill. I think this was done by Plaxco’s to ensure they got part of estate). The oldest Sarah could have been at this point was 20 – so she could not have been born before 1795).

1815 Goen, Sarah in York SC George Plaxco appt guardian of Sarah and then receiving 454 frm Elijah Going est in 1817

-George Plaxco received $487.57 “settlement” – from “Isaac Gowen, administrator of the estate of Elijah Goen”.
-This was paid March 25, 1817. So she must have still been a minor at this time. (so she could not have been born before 1797 per this document)

Docia Bland remarries to John Plaxco after Elijah Going dies.  John Plaxco dies in 1824, and Docia Plaxco (Bland), his wife, is administrator of the estate.  The settlement of the estate shows Drury Going (Drury B. Goyne – Elijah’s and  Docia’s son) being paid his “Legacy”, as well as Elvira Plaxco – who is now married to Thompson McCluney – as is shown in the probate papers of John Plaxco‘s estate:
