In Oct 1782 Daniel Gowin is indicted as a torie along with Shadrach Inman, his brother-in-law and Charles McPeters, the father-in-law of Shadrach Inman. (9) This is an involved situation. Daniel Gowin was from England and really had no animosity toward the mother country. The taxes and problems that had convinced many Americans that independence was the only answer was not as apparent to the frontiersman that were faced with the problems of survival.

Daniel Gowin along with the Inmans soon left the Catawba country and bought land further inland probably around 1785. Leeper states that the Gowins family “lived on a boundary of land on Long Creek” (10) in Tennessee now Jefferson Co.

To refer again to the letter by Nancy Lavenia she says that “Daniel Goans and Anna Goans sons and daughters were Ezekiel, William, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, Abednigo, Jane, Sarah & Daniel. We know of Shadrach and Francis as mentioned in the will of Susannah. (11)

Daniel Gowin’s estate is administered by his wife Susannah Goin and the inventory returned 6 Sep 1810. (12) Thus Daniel died some time before that date.

Again, one can only conjecture as to the date of Daniel’s birth. If the item is correct involving Samuel Doak then Daniel could have been born in 1735. Susannah’s birth is only conjecture. We know her brother Shadrach was born 27 Jan 1747 and Abednego 1 July 1752. I would probably put Susannah’s birth as about 1744. Daniel II is listed as the last child in Nancy Lavenia’s letter.

Charlotte:

I just read your post concerning Daniel Goin who married Susannah Inman,
sister of Shadrack, Meshack and Abendago, et. al, Inman. My interest in the Inman
family comes from my research on the McDowell – McPeeters family. Shadrack Inman married Mary McPeeters, the daughter of Charles and Mary McDowell
McPeeters.

VA records. This Samuel Doak appears to
be the elder Samuel who was married to Jane Mitchell, and were parents of the
well known Revolutionary Presbyterian minister, Rev. Samuel Doak. You may be
aware that Rev. Samuel Doak was noted as giving the invocation at the
gathering at Sycamore Shoals when the “Overmoutain” men gathered prior to the march to
the battle of King’s mountain, NC.

Daniel Goin is named as a “cited” (suspected) Torie in a summons issued 12
December 1782 by the Clerk of Court of Burke Co., NC. His name is written as
“Dan’l Gowin” This court summons sent to the Sheriff to notify the named
suspected Tories in the county to appear the “Third Monday in Janry next” (1783) at
the Court to give reason why they should not have their property confiscated.
There were 121 men named in the summons, among them were Shadrack Inman
(brother in law of Daniel Goin), Charles McPeters (father in law of Shadrack
Inman), Joseph McPeters (son of Charles McPeters), Jonathan McPeters (son of Charles
McPeters), David Melson (Nelson) – relationship to the family is unclear but
Jonathan McPeters became guardian to David Nelson,Jr., three Hyatt men who are
some way intermarried into the Inman family – Hezekiah Hyatt, Seth Hyatt,
Edward Hyatt, and James Barnes, a nephew of Charles McPeters.

I honestly have not been able, as of yet, to completely comprehend why these
men were cited as being suspected Tories or Tory sympathizers, although it is
part of the larger Court martial trial of Gen. Charles McDowell. (Who was the
first cousin of Charles McPeters wife Mary McDowell McPeters). It is an
established fact that both Joseph and Jonathan McPeters served as Patriots during
the Revolution from Burke Co., NC, and I can’t really make sense of why they
were being cited as Tories at the end of the Revolution, but, perhaps further
research will help clarify this.

The bitter animosity engendered during the Revolutionary war between the Whigs and Tories did not subside immediately after the treaty of peace in 1783. The few of the latter who remained in the country were ever after subjected to social ostracism, and were most fortunate if they escaped personal violence. The patriotic inhabitants of the frontier could not so soon forget the manner in which their babes had been taken from the cradle and from the breasts of their mothers, and their brains dashed out, by the hated and despised Tories; nor could they blot from their memory the fact that those foes to their country, while professing friendship to the Whigs, acted as spies for the enemy, and secretly joined the predatory bands of Indians in their incursions against their nearest neighbors of the settlements, and shared in the booty while they excelled their savage allies in deeds of inhumanity. Indeed, this anti-Tory feeling only died out when the last patriot of the Revolution expired. That there would be numerous collisions between the two factions was to be expected, as that would be no more than the legitimate result of such bitter personal resentment; nor could the wranglings cease except with the death of the parties.

Ezekiel Inman was born in Maryland about 1740 to Robert Inman. In 1774 they lived in Burke County. They removed to Jefferson County, Tennessee about 1785.

At that time the area was known as Washington District, North Carolina and had the Mississippi River as its western boundary. The Trans-Blue Ridge community felt isolated and abandoned by North Carolina and organized the Watauga Association to provide their own government and protection. The North Carolina legislature in 1784 tried unsuccessfully to give the settlement to the federal government, and at that time the Tennesseeans organized their own “Free State of Frank-lin” [at first called Frankland].

Daniel Goans arrived just in time to help elect John Sevier governor of the unauthorized new state which petitioned for admission to the United States. The fledgling state of Franklin was ignored by Congress, and Sevier was arrested for treason. A friendly jailor allowed Sevier to escape, and he went out to organize a militia. When the Revolutionary forces needed help in the West, the Americans appointed Sevier a brigadier-general, and his militia soundly defeated the British and the Loyalists in the Battle of Kings Mountain and in the Battle of Cowpens in South Carolina.

On May 26, 1790 the federal government accepted Tennessee with a population of 35,691 into the union as the “Territory south of the River Ohio,” providing the territory could produce a population of 60,000 people. In 1795, a territorial census barely reached the prescribed minimum which undoubtedly included Indians [wherever needed.]

“Daniel Goen, Ezekiel Goen and William Goen” appeared in the 1800 tax list of Jefferson County, enumerated in Capt. McDonald’s Company. Each was recorded as “one white poll.” In addition Ezekiel Goen was assessed taxes on 100 acres of land. They appeared on the tax rolls of Jefferson County, according to “Jefferson County, Tennessee Tax Roll.”

Daniel Goans established his family on the north side of the Nolichucky River above the mouth of Long Creek. “Daniel Goin” died there in 1810. “Susannah Goin, administratrix” prepared an inventory of his estate which was delivered to the Jefferson County Court September 6, 1810, according to “Jefferson County, Tennessee Will Book 1, 1792-1810.” It was received and recorded by County Clerk Joseph Hamilton September 10, 1810.

On October 9, 1816, “Susannah Goin” wrote her own will. In it she mentioned “son, Shadrach Goin” and “daughter, Fanny Evins.” Witnesses were Shadrach Inman, John Inman and John Inman, Jr. The will was presented for probate in the December session, 1816 to the Jefferson County Court, after her death.

Children born to Daniel Goans and Susannah Inman Goans, according to a letter written February 15, 1994 by Ib Jensen of San Antonio, Texas, include:

Daniel Goans, Jr. born in 1774
Ezekiel Goans born about 1776
William Goans born about 1779
Hannah Goans born about 1782
Sarah Goans born about 1785
Fanny Goans born about 1788
Shadrach Goans born in 1790
Meschack Goans born about 1793
Abednego Goans born about 1797

Donna Gowin Johnston, Foundation member of Casper, Wyoming, wrote in 1993 that “Daniel Gowin had a grandson, Drury Goin, who was born out of wedlock to Fanny Goin.”

Daniel Goans, Jr. son of Daniel Goans and Susannah Inman Goans, was born in 1774 in Burke County, North Carolina. He was married June 27, 1794 to Martha Priscilla Jarnigan, according to the research of Sam Kenneth Goans, a descendant and Foundation Editorial Board Member of Knoxville. She was born January 26, 1776 in Pittsylvania County, Virginia to Thomas Jarnigan and Mary Witt Jarnigan.

The Jarnigan family had removed to Tennessee contemp-oraneously with the Goans and had also settled on the Nolichucky where they erected a large gristmill at Mount Har-mony, Tennessee. Historian L. L. Powers records that “while Thomas Jarnigan owned several slaves, he was seeking some-one to run the gristmill and placed young Daniel Goans, Jr. in charge.”

Jarnigan died intestate in 1802, and his estate was divided among his children with Priscilla receiving 338 acres on Richland Creek in adjoining Grainger County as her share of the real estate. Her share of the distribution of his personal property was valued at $639. It included a “negro boy named Henry” and a “whiskey still.” Since rye whiskey was declared an official medium of exchange in early-day Tennessee valued at “2s. 6d. per gallon,” a still was a valuable piece of property.

The couple removed to her inheritance on Richland Creek about 1802, along with her brother Jeremiah Jarnigan. Her brothers Noah Jarnigan and Chesley Jarnigan had preceded them to the new location.

“Daniel Goan white male, 50-60” was enumerated as the head of a household in the 1830 census of Grainger County, page 398. He was shown as illiterate. The family was composed of eight members:

“Goan, Daniel white male 50-60
white female 40-50
white male 15-20
white female 15-20
white male 10-15
white male 10-15
white male 10-15
white male 5-10”

He reappeared as the head of a household in the 1840 census of Grainger County. Martha Priscilla Jarnigan Goans died sometime prior to the enumeration, and he was remarried shortly afterward to Jane Frazier Dyer, according to the research of Willis T. Finley, Foundation Member of Longview, Texas.

According to Sam K. Goans, “Daniel Goans, Jr. through curtsy rights had only a life estate in his wife’s property, along with a child’s share when it was sold. When he decided to remarry he apparently relinquished his life estate to his children and sold his share to his son Hamilton B. Goans. All of the property was ultimately acquired by Jeremiah Jarnigan.”

“Daniel Goins” was recorded as head of a household in the 1850 census of Grainger County, Household 936-126:

“Goins, Daniel 70, born in NC, illiterate

Calvin 16
Alsy E. 7
David 6
Juliat A. C. 5
Abner B. F. 2
Lucy A. 5/12
Dyer, Eliza 22”

Eliza Dyer is regarded as the step-daughter of Daniel Goans, Jr. Calvin Goans may also have been a step-son of Daniel Goans, Jr. In 1860 Daniel Goans, Jr. was shown at age 86. He died in Grainger County in 1866 and was buried in the Jarnigan Cemetery at Poss, Tennessee.

Twelve children were born to Daniel Goans, Jr. and Martha Priscilla Jarnigan Goans, including:

Mary Goans, daughter of Daniel Goans, Jr. and Martha Priscilla Jarnigan Goans, was born about 1798. She was married August 23, 1817 to Drury Goans, believed to be a cousin. “Drury Gowen” was the bondsman for the marriage of “Nancy Gowen,” his sister-in-law to James M. Randolph November 22, 1829 in Grainger County. Drury Goans removed from Grainger County to Knox County.
