1839 June 21 – Joseph P. Prince v. Drury Gowings
In Chancery
The Answer of Drury Gowing, Guardian Ad Litem of William W. Gowings a minor to the Bill of Interpleader of Abram S Humphries the complainant. This Defendant answering to himself all right of exception to ch. said Bill of Interpleader for answer thereto saith that about the year 1824 or 1825 as he is informed and verily believe, one John Fernandes then a resident Citizen of Union District South Carolina purchased for Elizabeth Gowings at present the wife of the said Defendant & mother of the said William W. Gowing but who was then Elizabeth Smith a certain negro girl by the name of Milley then not more than 13 or 14 years of age.
And this Defendant further answering saith that the money with which said negro was purchased belonged (as he is informed & verily believes) to the said wife of this Defendant then Elizabeth Smith.
And whilst she was single and unmarried and the heir of her body, this Defendant further answering saith that he is informed and verily believes that the title to said negro Milley was by said John Farnandes vested in the said Elizabeth Smith and the heirs of her body as the money with which she had been purchased had been obtained from the sale of a negro which had been given to the said Elizabeth Smith and the heirs of her body by her father John Smith some years before.
This Defendant further answering saith that about the first of January AD 1839 that Abram S Humphries who had interpleaded in Ch Co. purchased from the said Elizabeth at that time the wife of this Defendant and the mother of the said William W. Gowing the said negro Milley and her three children Anthony about 6 years old, Maria about 4 years, and Willis about 2 years for the sum of 2000 dollars.
This Defendant further saith that 1100 dollars of this aforesaid sum was appropriated by the said Abram S Humphries by and with the consent of the said Elizabeth on the 19th day of January AD 1839 to the purchase of a certain negro woman by the name of Sarah and her two children Fayette and Oscar from one Olivia Clark then a citizen of the County of Winston in the State of Mississippi. All of which will more fully appear by reference to Exhibit marked A and which this Defendant prays may be made a part of his answer.
This Defendant further answering saith that a short time after this purchase of the last-mentioned slaves that said Abram S Humphries paid over to the said Elizabeth about four hundred dollars and a short term afterwards, some two or three hundred dollars more as this Defendant is informed and verily believes.
This Defendant further answering saith that the said Elizabeth being willing and anxious to secure to the heirs of her body as large a share as she could from the proceeds of the sale of the aforesaid negroes Milley and her three children requested the said Abram S Humphries to make and deliver to her minor son William W. Gowing a promissory note for the balance due from him on the purchase of the said Milley and her three children – which request was carried into effect by the said Abram S Humphries executing & delivering the note now in suit in the Circuit Court of Lowndes County, Mississippi wherein William W. Gowing by his next friend Drury Gowing (who is the Defendant) is Plaintiff and the said Abram S Humphries is Defendant.
This Defendant further answering saith that it was to arrest the progress of the aforesaid suit at law that the said Abram S. Humphries has interpleaded and restrained all further proceedings in said court.
This Defendant further answering saith that the negroes purchased as above mentioned by the said Abram S Humphries from the said Olivia Clark for the said Elizabeth & the heirs of her body are all that is left to the said Elizabeth & the heirs of her body of the aforesaid sum of 2000 dollars given by said Humphries for the said Milley and her three children except the amount now due on said not in suit – and that if said William W. Gowings is deprived of said sum of money that manifest injustice will be done him.
This Defendant further answering saith that the said Joseph P. Prince who now claims the amount of said note from said Abram S Humphries as garnishee should not in Equity and good conscience be permitted to have or possess the same as the said money belongs not to this Defendant but to the said William W. Gowing who is one of the minor heirs of the said Elizabeth Gowings.
This Defendant therefore prays that your Honor will protect & guard the interests of the said William W. Gowing from this and all other attempts to divest him of his just rights in the premises.
All of which matters and things this Defendant is ready and willing to aver, maintain, and prove as this Honorable Court shall direct & humbly prays to be ___ dismissed with his reasonable costs & charges in this behalf most wrongfully sustained.
Signed: Ace-Gray, Solicitors for Deft.

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.
