(Note:  There are at least 5 different Moses Going’s in Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia born between 1735-1774.  To make sure you are able to differentiate each, see the following link to compare each of the 5 different Moses Goings:  https://goyengoinggowengoyneandgone.com/various-moses-goings/ ). 

Luke Gowen, born say 1740, was taxable in James Hamilton’s list for Loudoun County in 1767 with Joseph Hough; taxable in 1768 with William Allin in his household; taxable on his own tithe and Samuel Johnson in 1769; taxable on his own and Joseph Proctor’s tithe in 1774; taxable in Cameron Parish on his own tithe and Leonard Goin in 1778; taxable on John McQueen’s tithe in 1781; Thomas Hopkins’ tithe, 2 horses and 2 cattle in 1782.

He was taxable on Moses Gowen‘s tithe in 1787, 1788, 1790, and 1792; taxable on Peyton Gowen’s tithe in 1797; called a blacksmith in 1812 [Tithables 1758-1799, 395, 409, 477, 492, 768, 832, 861, 1022, 1320; PPTL 1782-7; 1787-97; 1797-1812].

On 17 October 1783 he acknowledged in Loudoun County court a debt of 45 pounds to John Hough with interest from 11 April 1769, with allowance for a payment of 1 pound, 13 shillings made on 11 October 1770. On 17 June 1784 the court ordered that his tithables, including himself, 2 horses and 2 cattle, be added to the list of Thomas Respass [Orders 1783-5, 170, 351]. He was head of a Loudoun County household of 10 “other free” in 1810 [VA:288]. He and his wife Margaret were certified to be “free Negroes” in Loudoun County on 23 December 1795. The certificate stated that they had been living in the neighborhood of John Littleton for above thirty years [Certificates of Free Negroes at the Loudoun County courthouse, transcribed by Townsend Lucas].
He may have been the father of:
i. Leonard, born say 1762, taxable in Luke Goin’s Loudoun County household in 1774, taxable on his own tithe in 1780 [Tithables 1758-1799, 993]. He was the father of Elihu Goins who was born 15 April 1788. Elihu married Susannah, the daughter of Anthony Lucas. Susannah was born 25 April 1785 [Certificates of Free Negroes at the Loudoun County courthouse, transcribed by Townsend Lucas]. He sued Luke Going in Loudoun County court on 16 February 1791 but the case was agreed before coming to trial [Orders 1790-1, 102]. He was taxable in Loudoun County from 1787 to 1813: taxable on 4 tithes in 1813 (his wife and two children?) [PPTL 1787-97]. Perhaps his widow was the Susannah Goin who was head of a Loudoun County household of 13 “free colored” in 1830.
ii. Lucretia, taxable on a horse in Loudoun County in 1793 [PPTL 1787-97].
iii. Moses, born say 1770, taxable in Loudoun County from 1787 to 1791 and in 1801 [PPTL 1787-97; 1797-1812].

Mary Anne Gowen, born say 1742, was bound out by the churchwardens of Southam Parish, Goochland County, to David Thomas in January 1747/8 [Orders 1744-9]. On 25 May 1761 the Cumberland County court ordered the churchwardens of King William Parish to bind out her son Stephen Goen to Peter Anthony Luckado [Orders 1758-62, 322], and on 16 May 1782 the Powhatan County, Va court ordered the churchwardens of King William Parish to bind out her son Moses Going to Francis Merryman [Orders 1777-84, 225].
She was the mother of:
i. Stephen1, born say 1760.
ii. Moses, born say 1775, taxable in Powhatan County from 1792 to 1797 and from 1801 to 1817: called a “Mo” from 1793 to 1795 and from 1801 to 1814; listed with 1 “free negroes & mulattoes” above the age of 16 in his household in 1813 [PPTL, 1787-1825, frames 77, 92, 106, 118, 132, 146, 223, 257, 278, 295, 317, 342, 363, 380, 399, 421, 438, 458, 482, 533]. On 19 August 1818 the Powhatan County court bound a “free boy of Colour” Thomas Going, son of Fanny Findley, to him as an apprentice carpenter [Going, Thomas (M): Indenture of Apprenticeship, 1818, African American Narrative Digital Collection, LVA].
iii. ?Shadrack3, taxable in Powhatan County from 1791 to 1797: his tax charged to Judith Bingley in 1791, called a “Mo” from 1793 to 1795 [PPTL, 1787-1825, frames 57, 92, 106, 118, 132, 146].
iv. Alexander, son of Mary Going, ordered bound out by the churchwardens of King William Parish in Powhatan County on 16 April 1784 [Orders 1777-84, 383].
