We know from William W. Goyen’s letters that were written in the Civil War (found on his body and delivered to his wife after his death) that his sister was Nancy Goyen who married into the Provine family.  (In letter named “Nannie Provine” with her son “Joseph Findley Provine”).

Letters from W W Goyen found on body in Civil War letter June 7, 1864 letter 2

(Transcription of W W Goyen letters dated May 9, 1864 and June 7, 1864.  They were found on his body after killed at Battle of Brice’s Crossroads on June 10, 1864 – Letters were taken from his pocket and delivered to his wife Sarah Bell Goyen – Originals are listed below under “Events” – difficult to read).

Nancy Goyen is mentioned in “Biographical and Historical Memoirs of Mississippi: Embracing an Authentic and Comprehensive Account of the Chief Events in the History of the State and a Record of the Lives of Many of the Most Worthy and Illustrious Families and Individuals”.   Information from the article shows she was born in 1840 a native of Pickens, Alabama.  She was an orphan at an early age and raised by her brothers and sisters, and married Robert Neely Provine at age 20.   Nancy Goyen and Robert N. Provine had 9 children, 8 sons and 1 daughter.

Finally, the following Genealogy of the Goyen family was done in 1958 by Mrs. Elmer Mathie Adams.  It traces the siblings of William W. Goyen that she knew about and their descendants. It also traces the all the children of William W. Goyen, and their descendants.  It has been helpful in piecing together family members who may still be alive.  I have redacted birth date information of those who may possibly still be living to protect privacy:
