1815-1821 Thomas B. Goyne – Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas

Thomas B. Goyne was born about 1815-1821.  His first marriage appears to be to Caroline (unk last name), appearing in the 1860 US Census in Marion County, Texas.  He appears to have died in St. Louis, Missouri in 1895 (steamboat captain per death notice – age abt 80).

Parents:  (Note:  Two possibilities considering right now – either James Goyne b. abt 1777 or another possible parent is Thomas B. Goyne b. 1789-1795 of SC – some documents from Tuscaloosa Co, AL name Thomas B Goyne Jr, and Thomas B Goyne Sr indicating a possible parent/child relationship).

Children:

Unknown

(Note:  None of his census reports in Mississippi nor Texas show any children – but there is a note from the Gowen Manuscript from a Day C. Love who says he went to school with the children Thomas B Goyne of Crawford, Lowndes Co, MS, who later removed to Texas – so he may have had children – I am unable to locate who they are at the current time).

Siblings:

Unknown – it depends on who his father was.

(Note:  While in Lowndes Co, Mississippi, the census and tax records appear to indicate he lived close to Drury B. Goyne (another grandson of Drury Going b. 1749), and his sons William W. Goyen, and John E. Going – prior to his removing to Texas).

Facts and Info:

FACTS and SOURCES:

(NOTE:   There are at least 3 Thomas B Going or Goyne individuals, closely related, who are either the son of or grandson of Drury Going b. 1749. It is believed the “B” is for “Baxter” for all 3.  They are:

1) Thomas B Goyne b abt 1789-1795 – son of Drury Going b. 1749 (Appears to have moved to Tuscaloosa Co, AL).
2) Thomas B Going b. 1806 – son of Isaac Going b. 1775 (making him grandson of Drury Going b 1749). (Appears to have moved to Etowah Co, AL some time after 1866).
3) Thomas B Goyne b. abt 1820 – likely son of either Thomas B Goyne b. 1789 (making him grandson of Drury Going b 1749), or son of James Goyne b. 1777 (making him grandson of Drury Going b 1749). (Appears to have lived in Tuscaloosa Co, AL, then moved to Lowndes Co, MS and Columbus, MS, from there to the Cass County, Texas area around 1850).

It is helpful to keep this in mind to differentiate the 3 men when reviewing records).

Thomas B. Goyne was born about 1821 in Alabama, according to “Some Early Citizens of Jefferson, Texas,” page 31. The author stated the “Capt. T. B. Goyne” removed to Jefferson, Texas between 1848 and 1851. At that time Jefferson was located in Cass County, Texas.

Day C. Love has been quoted as saying that he went to school with the children of Thomas Baxter Going, “a clergyman of Crawford, Mississippi who later removed to Texas.”  He may have been referring to Rev. Thomas Baxter Going, a nephew of Thomas Baxter Going.  Of Thomas Baxter Going nothing more is known.

(Note:  Thomas Baxter Going b. 1806 was a clergyman, but did not move to Etowah Co, AL until after 1865 … and died in Alabama in 1896.  I have not seen any records of this Thomas B. Goyne b. abt 1815-21 acting as a clergyman – but there may be record I have not seen yet.  The Thomas B. Goyne of this page appears to have owned a store just outside Columbus, MS which burned down in 1849 … He then moved to Texas where he worked as a clerk for a short time, and then was a riverboat captain and businessman in Texas – when the Red River used to be able to support river boats down to the Mississippi).

(It appears that Thomas B Goyne was unable to be located – our Thomas B. Goyne for this page begins showing up in Columbus, Lowndes County, MS around this time – if this is the same person, it appears he moved, and that would be the reason he was unable to be found in Tuscaloosa, AL).

1849 Aug 11 – T B Goyne’s dry goods and grocery store destroyed by fire. “Fire at Westport, Miss. – We learn from a postscript in the Columbus (Miss.) Democrat of
the 1st inst., that a fire occurred at Westport, on the opposite side of the river, a mile or two above town, on the night of the 31st ult., which completely consumed the dry good and grocery stores of Messrs. G. W. Randolph and T. B. Goyne. The loss of Mr. Randolph is very heavy – nearly all of his goods were consumed. Mr. Goyne’s store, we learn, was ensured. There were two kegs of powder in Mr. Randolph’s store, which exploded with terrific reports, doing no injury, however, to any of those who were engaged at the time in removing the merchandise.

1873 – The Army Corp of Engineers blew up the natural dam on the Red River.  The  result was that the water levels declined so much that steamboat travel was no longer a viable way to get to the Mississippi from Jefferson.  The economy dried up after this and ended the boom that Jefferson, Texas had enjoyed from 1841 to 1873.   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jefferson,_Texas
