Mary “Polly” Going, daughter of Job Isaac Going and Rebecca Lockert Going, was born about 1809 at Flat Rock.  She was brought to Tuscaloosa County, Alabama in 1823.  She was married about 1830 to Joseph McClure.  When her father died in 1834, they received $1,100.365 in cash.  Since at that time they lived in Indiana, a “free” state, they were unable to inherit any of her father’s slaves.

Martha A. Going, daughter of Job Isaac Going and Rebecca Lockert Going, was born January 25, 1811 at Flat Rock, in Chester County.  She was brought by her parents to Tuscaloosa County in 1823   She was mentioned as an heir when her father’s estate was administered in 1834.  She was received into Oak Grove Presbyterian Church October 1, 1838, according to the church records.  She also appeared on the church roster in April 1843.

She was recorded in the 1850 census at age 40, living in the household of her mother. She was married to Elder Archibald Hood May 4, 1854, according to the church records.  He was born April 3, 1797, and she was his third wife.  He was the tenth child of William Hood and Jane Wiggins Hood and had married first, about 1780, Annie Somerville, daughter of James Somerville and Elizabeth Fletcher Somerville.  He remarried about 1831 to Mary Miller, daughter of Eli Miller and Ellen Knox Miller. He died March 25, 1871, and  Martha A. Going Hood died September 30, 1873.  They were buried in Franconia Cemetery.

Jane E. Going, daughter of Job Isaac Going and Rebecca Lockert Going, was born July 29, 1813, probably in Chester County.  She was brought to Tuscaloosa County in 1823.  She was mentioned as an heir in the settlement of the estate of her father.  She was married about 1837 to Benjamin J. Hughes who was born December 4, 1804.  Benjamin J. Hughes died May 4, 1878, and Jane E.

Evelyn Somerville, identified as a granddaughter of Benjamin J. Hughes and Jane E. Going Hughes, was born in 1885.  Her obituary reveals much about the Going family:

“Evelyn Somerville, 73, died May 19, near Aliceville, Alabama at ‘Ingleside,’ home of her grandparents, Benjamin J. and Jane Going Hughes, in which pillared house she was born.  Graduate of the University of Alabama, where she was a Phi Beta Kappa in 1906, she received a M.A. degree at Drexel Institute in New York City.  For a generation she followed her beloved library work at Troy College and at  Livingston State Teachers College.  She was also a librarian at Tuscaloosa, Fayette and Birmingham, Alabama and at Columbus, Ohio.

Prominent in state and local patriotic societies, she was also a leader in Presbyterian “Women of the Church” at all levels.  Her only survivor is a nephew, James S. Somerville with family, except for numerous cousins.  Her Revolutionary ancestors appeared in the 1790 census of Chester County, South Carolina at Lockert Shoals of the east bank of Broad River.  Living there in adjoining households were Capt. James Love III [1763-1807], Drury Going and Col. Aaron Lockert who changed the spelling of his name [Lockhart] since his parents and brothers in Pennsylvania were all Tories.

Capt. James Love and his brother, William Love were married to daughters of Col. Lockert, as did Drury Going who reared the captain’s orphan son, Drennan Love as a foster brother to his daughter, Jane E. Going Hughes.  Drennan Love in 1827 was married to Betsy Cook, granddaughter of Drury Going.  Twelve children, nine sons and three daughters, were born to the couple.  Moreover, John Lockert was guardian of nephews, the captain’s sons Aaron Love, John Love and David Love, hence the close connection of these pioneer families for over 100 years, notably in the area they helped to develop along the Alabama-Mississippi state line.  There they prospered as cotton planters with antebellum mansions and where Evelyn Somerville is buried in Franconia churchyard in Pickins County, Alabama.”

Eli Thomas Going, son of Job Isaac Going and Rebecca Lockert Going, was born at Flat Rock June 29, 1816.  He was brought to Tuscaloosa County in 1823.  He was mentioned in the Tuscaloosa County Orphans Court Book 1, page 84 as an heir in his father’s estate.  He removed with his mother to Pickens County in 1835.  On October 14, 1838 he was received into Oak Grove Presbyterian Church.  He was baptized November 25, 1838.

On January 18, 1839 he was married to Jane M. Somerville, third child of John Somerville and Sarah Hood Somerville, who was born April 5, 1815 in South Carolina.  John Somerville was one of three brothers who lived in Kershaw District.  He was born in South Carolina December 11, 1780 and died in Pickens County August 14, 1857, according to Mrs. Eddie R. Reed, Aliceville, Alabama who later owned John Somerville’s bible.  Sarah Hood Somerville was born in South Carolina June 30, 1785 and died in Pickens County February 25, 1867.  Both were buried at Oak Grove Presbyterian Church Cemetery near Aliceville.

John Somerville was a brother to Hugh Somerville who was born in 1780.  Both married daughters of William Hood of Beaver Creek Township, Kershaw County.  William Hood left a will in Kershaw County signed October 5, 1827, according to the research of Leonard Andrea, Columbia, South Carolina.

In 1842 Eli Thomas Going was a deacon at Oak Grove Presbyterian Church.  He and his wife were carried on the church roll in April 1843.

Eli Thomas Going and Jane M. Somerville in 1852 continued to live at Pleasant Grove.  In 1868, Rev. Eli Thomas Going was shown as a visiting minister at the First Presbyterian Church at Carrollton, Alabama, some eight miles north of Aliceville.  During the Civil War and for many years afterward he was a U. S. mail contractor, according to “Notable Men of Alabama” published in 1876.  He appeared as a bondsman for the marriage of his son, William Samuel Going to S. E. Johnston April 19, 1887, according to Pickens County marriage records.

Eli Thomas Going died at Benevola, Alabama June 28, 1889, and Jane M. Somerville Going died September 16, 1892, according to “Records of Pickens County, Alabama,” Vol. III by Mrs. C. P. McGuire, Sr.  They were buried in Franconia Cemetery.
