Pleasant Goins, was born about 1793 in Tennessee, according to “Our Kith and Kin” by Helen B. Wasson quoting Miss Fannie Littleton and Miss Louisiana Littleton of Point, Louisiana. They reported that he was “about 75 years old when he died about 1863.” Ella Lafay “Fay” Bullock Kitchens, a descendant researcher of Monroe, Louisiana, suggests that he was born about 1799 in Tennessee or Virginia. James Thomas Ballard places his date of birth as about 1788.

“Pleasant Gowen” was married to Temperance Cooper November 27, 1821, according to Dallas County Marriage Book D, page 76.. “Pleasant Gowing” appeared in Shelby County, Alabama October 20, 1832 where he received land in Section 6, Township 19, Range 1 West. The land grant was recorded in “Tuscaloosa Land Office Register,” according to “Old Tuskaloosa Land Office Records & Military Warrants, 1821-1855” by Marilyn Davis Barefield.

“Temperance Cooper Gowen” was enumerated in the 1840 census of Taledega County, Alabama along with a son and a daughter.

Pleasant Goins was remarried in Tuscaloosa County to Louisa Alice “Ally” Webb “of Georgia” August 25, 1846. “Pleasant Goings was married to L. Webb August 24, 1846 in Shelby County, Alabama,” according to the research of Gay Kinney. Louisa Alice “Ally” Webb was the daughter of John Webb who died there about 1860, according to the research of Fay Kitchens.

“Pleasant Gownes” obtained additional land there in 1854. He was reported to be a stagedriver. He died there about 1863.

“Loualley Gowings” was enumerated as the head of Household 236-236 in the 1870 census of Autauga County, page 27, living in Autaugaville, Alabama:

“Gowings, Loualley 50, widow, white, born in AL
Margaret 19, white, born in AL
Martin 17, white, born in AL
Susan 15, white, born in AL
Feeby 13, white, born in AL

Children born to Pleasant Goins and Temperance Cooper Goins include:

Elizabeth Gooing born about 1822
Andrew Martin Gooing born November 23, 1823
David Gooing born about 1826
William Gooing born about 1832

Children born to Pleasant Goins and Louisa Alice “Ally” Webb Goins include:

Matilda Jane Gooing born June 11, 1848
Margaret Gooing born about 1852
Martin B. Gooing born about 1853

Elizabeth Gooing, daughter of Pleasant Goins and Temperance Cooper Goins was born about 1822. She was married January 7, 1839 to Robert R. Davidson, according to Autauga County Marriage Book 1, page 53. Pleasant Goins gave his consent to the marriage.

Andrew Martin Gooing, son of Pleasant Goins and Temperance Cooper Goins, was born November 23, 1823 in Dallas County. He was enlisted June 13, 1846 in the U.S. Army at Mobile, Alabama for one year’s service in the Mexican War as a private in Capt. William Coleman’s Company in the First Alabama Regiment under Col. J. R. Coffey. His service record describes him as “5’10,” fair complexion, black eyes and light hair.” He was discharged at New Orleans May 27, 1847.

Helen B. Wasson wrote,

“The next record we have of Andrew Martin Gooing is an affidavit, dated September 27, 1847, sworn to in Marion, Perry County, Alabama, preparatory to filing for bounty land.

On October 27, 1847, in a letter headed Perryville, Alabama, he requested that his warrant for bounty land be sent “to my ad­dress at Maplesville, Bibb County, Alabama.” On April 25, 1848, he was awarded 160 acres of land in Bibb County.

On November 30, 1848, Andrew M. Gooing married Miss Areminta Barnett, according to File 2020, Perry County, Ala-bama marriage records. She was the daughter of Thomas Bar-nett and Phebary Bishop Barnett.

According to the 1850 census, Andrew and Areminta Gooing resided in Perry County, Alabama in Perryville Beat, in the eastern part of the county. Andrew is listed as being 26 years old, a pumpmaker, Areminta is 24, and they have one child, William, age 1.

In 1858, the estate of Thomas Barnett, Areminta’s father, was settled. In Minute Book I 1858, page 43, State of Alabama, Perry County, we find Areminta and her husband mentioned. Their part was $1,272.95. Having received $342.53 prior to the settlement, were due $990.42.

Shortly thereafter, Andrew and Areminta Gooing came to Lou-isiana, we suppose, with a caravan of settlers. They first lived at Old Shiloh in Union Parish. Emest Edward Ballard, grand-son of Andrew M. Gooing, told me that Andrew M. Gooing had a gin, a blacksmith shop, and that he was a carpenter.

Martha A. Gooing Ballard’s letter states: ‘Father was a farmer, wood workman, a fine blacksmith, and a mason.’

We have a certified copy of Conveyance Record K, page 190‑-191, Union Parish Deed, dated February 27, 1863, a deed from Alfred Honeycutt to ‘A. M. Goings’ for 360 acres of land. This deed confirms the following story that was told to me. Alfred Honeycutt had a son, Bob, who was of army age. Honey-cutt could not bear to see his son to go to war. He told Andrew M. Gooing he would deed 360 acres to him if he would take the boy’s place. Andrew agreed to do this. On the day of his en-listment, the deed was made. They moved from the Old Shiloh to the Honeycutt place on DeLoutre. That is how the Ballard homeplace was acquired.

Following is Andrew M. Gooing’s Confederate States war record, taken from Booth’s ‘Records of Louisiana Confeder­ate Soldiers and Commands,’ Book 1, Page 44:

‘Guing, Andrew M. Pvt. Co. I, 31st Infantry. Enlisted February 27, 1863, Monroe, Louisiana. Federal Rolls of Prisoners of War, captured and paroled at Vicksburg, Mississippi, July 4, 1863.

The photostat of Andrew M. Gooing’s CSA record shows the same dates as above. It shows he enlisted for three years, or the war. There are two interesting notes; ‘he has never been paid,’ and ‘the duplicate roll carries his name as Going instead of Gooing.’

Martha A. Gooing Ballard’s letter gives us the following: ‘Father went through the Vicksburg hard battle and was wounded in head and shoulder which shortened his life . . .’

Aunt Rosalie Ballard White has heard Areminta Gooing say that during the war, in the middle of the night, some Yankees came and burned the cotton gin and cotton bales. They took all their chickens, livestock and bed covering. [The gin was on that part of the place they call the ‘old sand field.’]

Andrew M. Gooing returned from the war on a horse someone had let him have. It is said he was so ill when he returned that he could hardly climb down from the horse. He died December 9, 1867.

On September 14, 1957, I visited Andrew M. Gooing’s grave at Old Tennessee Graveyard in Union Parish, Louisiana. E. E. Ballard took me there. The gravestone is Masonic, shaped like a pyramid and in perfect condition. On the side opposite the Masonic insignia there is sculptured an ear of corn. The front of the stone is marked ‘Andrew M. Gooing Born November 15, 1823, Died December 9, 1867. Erected by his Wife.’

Andrew M. Gooing deeded the 360 acres to William Sanders Gooing, his son whom he had taught the carpentry trade. Wil-liam took over the shop after his father’s death. E. E. Ballard told me that ‘Uncle Will’ could build anything and was espe-cially good at cabinet work. He also stated that William S. Gooing built the Gus Hartman House at Farmerville. In 1890, William S. Gooing was murdered by a man named Deas. His death, we are told, caused Areminta, his mother to grieve for him for the rest of her life. William S. Gooing’s grave is adjacent to his father’s and is marked.

William S. Gooing left the place to Martha Angeline Gooing, our grandmother, who had married John Ballard. This caused friction in the family, so Martha A. and John Ballard put the land up for sale and John Ballard bought it in.

Areminta made her home with Martha and John Ballard. I have heard my father speak of her many times and said he had ridden into town with her to get her pension check.

This pension check was a great puzzlement to me. I had been told it was a CSA widow’s pension. I made many fruitless efforts to verify it. The CSA Pension Act was not approved until 1898 ‑ then, one day, upon rereading Martha A. Ballard’s letter, it occurred to me that perhaps it was a widow’s pension from Andrew’s service in the Mexican War. This proved to be true, and as a consequence, I was able to acquire from National Archives Andrew’s military records which gave me much valuable information.

Areminta Barnett Gooing was well educated. We are told she was a school teacher. She was a Baptist; her bible was beauti­fully kept, and she wrote exceedingly well.

We found the following in her handwriting:

“Areminta Gooing Aug. the 9, 1900

Back to the old home viewing scenes of childhood
There is where I know no care or pain
There in my childish glee
Under the woodland tree
0, how I long to go to the old home once again
Though I am old now,
I love to linger on happy thoughts of bygone days
When through the [illegible], I roamed
Far from my dear old home
Gathering the scented flowers that grew along the way
Now I am alone, no loving hands … ”

That is all that is on the scrap of paper, but it does give one in­sight to the character of Areminta Barnett Gooing.

Areminta died March 4, 1902, while she was visiting in the home of her daughter, Phebery Jane Gooing Tugwell [Mrs. George Tugwell]. She is buried at Blanchard Springs, Ar-kansas, where she died. I have been told her grave is marked. [Her grave was found in 1990 by Carroll Heard Goyne, Jr, Foundation Editorial Boardmember of Shreveport. It is located in an almost abandoned wooded cemetery in Section 32, Township 19S, Range 3W in Union County. The cemetery is about 1/4 mile northwest of the present Blanchard Springs Church. A smaller wooded cemetery is about 1/2 mile south of this one, according to James Thomas Ballard.]

Blanchard Springs is in Union County, Arkansas. The old house in which Areminta Gooing, Martha A. and John Ballard lived, burned in November, 1955. At the time it was occupied by E. E. Ballard and his wife, Ossie. The 360 acres of the old home place presently belong to E. E. Ballard.”

Arementa Barnett Gooing was the daughter of Thomas Barnett and Pheraby Bishop Barnett, according to the research of a great-grandson, James Thomas Ballard, a Foundation member of Vicksburg, Mississippi. He wrote:

“Andrew Martin Gooing came to Union Parish as a member of the Thomas Barnett family.
