Drury B. Goyen born abt 1805 – Wife: Elizabeth (possibly Chisholm)(no info on her other than first name – her youngest daughter’s name is Nancy Chisholm Goyen – Nancy’s middle name may be the mother’s maiden name).
(Drury B. Goyen cannot be older than 1800 – since guardian papers to be guardian of his estate were filed by John Plaxco on him in York Co, SC in 1820 – meaning in 1820 he was still a legal minor – under 21).

Childhood:

Drury B. Goyen was born about 1805 in Chester County, South Carolina.  His parents were Elijah Goyen and Docia Bland Goyen.   He has one known sibling, Sarah Goyen born about 1800.

Drury B. Goyen’s father, Elijah Goyen, was handling the estate of his father Drury Goyen b. 1749 who had died in 1796 and was still in charge of the estate when Elijah Goyen died suddenly in 1807.   Drury B. Goyen was about 7 years old at this time.

It appears Drury B. Goyen may have moved in with his grandmother when his father died.  The 1810 US Census in Chester Co, SC shows Sarah Goyen’s household showing:

1 male 0-10 yrs = Drury B. Goyen 9 yrs old b. 1800 (Sarah’s grandson from Elijah)
1 male 10-16 yrs = Thomas B. Goyen 15 yrs old b. 1795 (Sarah’s youngest child)
1 female 16-26 yrs = Sarah Baxter Goyen 24 yrs old b. 1786 (Sarah’s daughter)
1 female 16-26 yrs = Mary Polly Going 25 yrs old b. 1785 (Sarah’s daughter)
1 female over 45 yrs = Sarah Goyen (self)

In November of 1814, Sarah Goyen – Drury B. Goyen’s grandmother, writes her will – she may have become ill and decided to write the will.

Drury B. Goyen’s sister, Sarah, had George Plaxco appointed as guardian of her estate on April 3, 1815.   On March 25, 1817 she has married.  The name of her husband listed on the settlement papers appears to be “Thos. Noling her husbands receipt“.

Sarah Goyen must have become ill again in 1820.   By this time, Drury B. Goyen’s mother, Docia Bland Goyen, has remarried to John Plaxco.

On March 27, 1820, the York County court appoints John Plaxco as guardian of Drury B. Goyen’s legal estate (to protect his assets from Elijah Goyen’s estate) as he was still legally a minor (under 21 years of age).

Drury B. Goyen next shows up in the 1830 US Census in York County, South Carolina.  At this time Drury B. Goyen was living with his wife, and 2 sons under the age of 5 (William W. Goyen b. 1825, and John E. Going b. 1828), and 1 daughter under the age of 5 (Ann Eliza Going b. 1829).

By 1837 – 1839 Drury B. Goyen appears to have moved and obtained land grants in Pickens County, Alabama – near where several Goyen (several spelling their names Goyne or Going) aunts, uncles and cousins had already settled.  He and his family lives in the Pickens County, Alabama area until at least the mid 1840s.  His uncle, Thomas B. Goyen receives a land grant in 1840 in Alabama.

In 1843 Thomas B. Goyen (Drury B. Goyen’s uncle – who is close to Drury B. Goyen’s age) had moved to Lowndes County, Mississippi according to Mississippi State tax records (just across the border from Pickens County, Alabama).  http://mdah.state.ms.us/arrec/digital_archives/taxrolls/Lowndes/1843/Personal%20and%20Additional/22 ; http://mdah.state.ms.us/arrec/digital_archives/taxrolls/Lowndes/1844/Personal/21

Drury B. Goyen appears to follow Thomas B. Goyen to Mississippi.  The 1845 Lowndes County, Miss. Census and tax rolls show Drury Goings with 6 females and 5 males in his household. (possibly 5 daughters and 4 sons, including William W. Goyen). http://mdah.state.ms.us/arrec/digital_archives/taxrolls/Lowndes/1845/Personal/80

In 1847 Drury B. Going and William W. Going appear on the county tax rolls.   This indicating that William W. Goyen has moved out of Drury’s home.  This is the last document found with Drury B. Goyen listed.   William W. Goyen’s youngest sister, Nancy Goyen born 1840 (later married Provine), indicates that she was orphaned at an early age and was brought up by siblings.  Drury B. Goyen and his wife must have died some time during 1847 or 1848.  http://mdah.state.ms.us/arrec/digital_archives/taxrolls/Oktibbeha/1847/Personal/11http://mdah.state.ms.us/arrec/digital_archives/taxrolls/Oktibbeha/1847/Personal/43

Parents: 

It was not easy finding who Elijah Going’s children were.  I believe people stopped looking at Elijah as possible parent of any other Going or Goyen children because of a misreading of a document in the probate files.  Others had researched the files and thought that Thomas Going was Elijah’s child based on papers appointing Isaac Going as guardian of Thomas Going.

This was a misreading of the document.   I have attached the document below – the handwriting is bad, but you can clearly see that “Thomas Going infant son of Drury Goin” So this is Drury’s child, not Elijah’s.  Thomas is Elijah’s brother, not his son.  This document is appointing Isaac Going as guardian of Thomas B. Going – Drury Goyen’s youngest child. (As a Note:   This also shows that in 1809 Thomas Baxter Going (Drury Going b. 1749’s youngest child) was a minor (under 21 years of age), so the oldest he could have been was 20 yrs at the time, born 1789.   The 1850 US Census reports in Alabama shows Thomas Baxter Goyne as 55 years old, placing birth year at 1795).

How we know Elijah Going born 1770 is father of Drury B. Goyen born 1800:

We know Elijah Going is the father of Drury B. Goyen from probate papers. See documents below.  In summary, Drury B. Goyen’s mother Docia Bland, wife of Elijah Going deceased, was an administrator and executor of Elijah Going’s estate.  Elijah died intestate (without a will), so the law entitled the wife to a 1/3 part of the estate while she lived.  The remaining amount to go to the children.  Male children inherited the land.  Female children inherited a percentage of the personal property, cash, etc – divided equally among the male and female children.   Since Elijah only had 2 children, one male, one female, Elijah’s property went to Drury B. Goyen.

Docia Bland remarried to John Plaxco.  John Plaxco was appointed as legal guardian of Drury B. Goyen’s estate (since he was a legal minor – under 21 years of age).  George Plaxco (John’s brother) was appointed guardian of Sarah Goen’s esate (she is daughter of Elijah Going – confirmed in settlement papers attached to her guardian paperwork – see below).

John Plaxco dies in 1824 and Docia Bland (Plaxco now) is appointed executrix of the John Plaxco deceased’s estate.  Docia distributes money to her son, Drury B. Goyen, as his “Legacy” out of the money of the estate of John Plaxco.   This would be the money that John Plaxco was holding as guardian of Drury B. Goyen’s estate.

SEE DOCUMENTATION BELOW:

First, Docia Going (Elijah’s wife, and Drury B. Goyen’s mother) was appointed executor of Elijah Going’s estate when he died intestate (without a will) in 1807.   Dying intestate usually means the death was sudden, or unexpected – especially when the person had assets.  If they had a lengthy illness, a will is usually made.

Docea Going was paid out of the estate for her Legacy.  Since Elijah died intestate – as wife, Docea received a “one third share” of the estate – which was her legacy.   For rules regarding distribution of estates during this period of time, see the following link:  http://www.genfiles.com/articles/wills-intestates-probate/

Drury B. Goyen (Going)
– William Walter Goyen’s letters, and proximity of Goyen’s in area, that his father is Drury B. Goyen/Going
– Elvira Plaxco (Drury B. Goyen’s half-sister) married Thompson McCluney.
– In the 1850 US Census – 80 yr old Docea Plaxco (Thompson McCluney’s mother in law) is living with Thompson McCluney. Elvira had apparently died some time in the 1830s.
– Drury B. Going appears to have appeared in Alabama/Miss area in the same time with his mother and sister’s family out to Alabama, and then to Mississippi
– By 1850, Drury no longer shows up anywhere on any census or tax rolls.
– Elvira Plaxco married Thompson McCluney. Docea Plaxco was 80 yrs old and living in Thompson McCluney’s household in the 1850 US Census in Oakland, Yalobusha County, Mississippi. The same house where William W. Going was sending his letters to his sisters and cousins.
– Drury’s relationship to the McCluney family was that Thompson McCluney had married his sister – Elvira Plaxco. So Thompson McCluney was William W. Going’s uncle by marriage to his aunt Elvira Plaxco.
-It appears that Drury B. Going must have died some time after the 1847 census in Oktibbeha County, Mississippi – county tax rolls – pg 43 lists:
Wm. W. Going, and Drury B. Going on tax rolls. (see weblink):
http://mdah.state.ms.us/arrec/digital_archives/taxrolls/Oktibbeha/1847/Personal/43
– Before he marries Sarah Martha Bell, William W. Goyen writes to two of his sisters who are living with the McCluneys. He also addresses letters to members of the McCluney family and calls them “cousin”, “uncle”, and “Grandma”. This is evidence that William W. Goyen’s mother was a McCluney. Thompson McCluney was the head of the household – so this would have been William W. Goyen’s uncle (his mother’s brother).
(Interesting note: In 1830 census – in York, South Carolina – Thompson McCluney is listed on same page and DIRECTLY next to Drury Goings’ name on same census. James McCluney is also listed two people away on other side of Drury Goings).

B. Drury B. Going Information:
i) (Below info is from:
http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~gowenrf/Gowenms133.htm ).
Elijah Going, son of Drury Going and Sarah “Sallie” Baxter Going, was born in 1770 in Chester County. He was married to the “widow Docea” [believed to be Mary Docea] about 1793. Fredrick W. Tucker shows here name as Doshea Bland. Elijah Going was named co-administrator of the estate of his father July 26, 1796, along with his mother. He was a witness to the will of Aaron Lockert which was produced in Chester County Court January 30, 1799.

“Elijah Goin,” owner of three slaves, was enumerated as the head of a household in the 1800 census of Chester County, page 94:

“Goin, Elijah white male 26-45
white female 16-26
white male 16-26
white female 0-10”

Elijah Going filed his accounting on the estate of his father with Chester County Court: “Paid to Jobe Going July 17th day, 1802, 72:2; Paid to Asa Tindall July 17th day, 1802, 72:2; Paid to Isaac Going July 17th day, 1802, 72:2; Paid to James Going July 17th day, 1802, 72:2.
By me, Elijah Going this 19th day April 1803.Returned on oath by Elijah Going 19th day April 1803
J[oseph] A. Brown, Ordinary”

Elijah Going filed a receipt with the Chester County Court showing payments to Mary Going, “September 20th day 1805, paid to Mary Going Seventy-five Dollars; April 9th day, 1806 paid to Mary Going Two hundred and sixty-five dollars; paid to Mary Going February 16th day 1807 Twenty-nine dollars by me.
Elijah Going To[tal] $369”

It is believed that Elijah Going died about 1808. “Isaac Going, Administrator of the Estate of Elijah Going” received a receipt for a three dollar payment from James Anderson, January 11, 1809, according to Chester County probate records. Two children, names unknown, were born to Elijah Going and Doshea Bland Going, according to Fredrick W. Tucker.

. . . Isaac Going and his brother-in-law Larkin Asa Tindall posted a bond in connection with the guardianship of Thomas Going, minor. The child is believed to be a son of his deceased brother, Elijah Going and Mary Docea Going. The bond read:

“South Carolina
Know all men by these presents that we, Isaac Going and Asa Tindall are held & firmly bound to Joseph Brown, Ordinary of Chester District in the just and full Sum of Five Thousand Dollars to be paid to said Joseph Brown or his successors ordinary of the said District or their certain attorney or assigns to which payment well & truly to be made. we bind our selves & every of our —- & every of our heirs, executors and administrators on the whole & for who jointly and severally by these presents Sealed & dated this Eleventh day of January of our Lord One thousand Eight hundred and nine, the thirty-third year of American Independence.
The condition of this obligation is such that if the above bounded Isaac Goin shall carefully & lovingly bring up Thomas Going, infant son of Mary [Nancy?] Going Dec’d (This is incorrect – image found in loose papers shows document actually says:  “infant son of Drury Goin” – SEE IMAGE BELOW) and during the time of his minority with necessary food & drink —- ——- —– & — — learning, according to his degree & ——- —- —- shall be guardian & tutor to the said Ward shall preserve him —– — —– or loss of lands or goods as far as in him lies and all such portions as shall fall due to the said Ward —- of the goods chattels of any person whatsoever shall pay & deliver to him when he shall come to age, to receive the same & the said shall happen to — before that time & if the said Isaac Going do in such case pay such portion to whom-soever shall be entitled to the same by Law & Bond a just & true account of his said guardianship & I save harmless the said Ordinary on account of granting the said Letters Guardianship, then this obligation to be void or else to remain of force.
