North Carolina – Lincoln County

(Below are different Going, Goyen, Gowen related sources for those people were in the Virginia, North Carolina, or South Carolina areas in the early 1700’s to early 1800’s)

From Gowen Manuscript:  http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~gowenrf/Gowenms096.htm

Lincoln County was organized in 1778 with land from Tryon County, North Carolina.

One year later, Nathan Goins was among the signors of a petition dated October 19, 1779 signed by residents of Lincoln County which requested that a portion of Burke County, North Carolina be annexed to Lincoln County, according to North Carolina Legislature Papers, Box 27, North Carolina Archives.

“Burke County, North Carolina Land Records 1779-1790 and Important Miscellaneous Records 1777-1800,” Volume II by Edith Warren Huggins also carried this list.

On May 4, 1782 the General Assembly approved the annexation of a portion of Burke County to Lincoln County. A further annexation of part of Burke County to Lincoln County occurred in 1784. The area annexed in 1784 was the same area that in December 1842 became the new county of Catawba.

The following signatures were affixed to the petition.

Wiley Going was married to Anna Goldman January 26, 1839 in Lincoln County according to “North Carolina Marriage Bonds, 1741-1868,” record 1050, bondsman: Daniel Smith, witness: H. Cansler, Clerk of Court, bond 72692. Nothing more is known of Wiley Going and Anna Goldman Going.
==O==
Elizabeth Evans Goins was married about 1800 to Lowerance [Lawrence?] Evans, Jr. as his second wife. He was born to Loverance Evans and Sarah Evans about 1769. He was previously married in 1792 to Lucy Green, according to Bobby G. Carvile, Evans family researcher.
==O==
James Goins was married August 4, 1836 to Mary A. Kincaid, according to “Lincoln County, North Carolina Marriages, 1769-1850.” The marriage is confirmed by “North Carolina Marriage Bonds, 1741-1868,” Record No. 1050, Bondsman William Dunn, witness M. W. Abernathy, Bond No.72696.
She was the daughter of John Kincaid, Jr. and Mary Ann Black Kincaid. John Kincaid, Jr. was the son of John “the Patriarch” Kincaid and Julia Avery Kincaid.

According to the research of E. Carla Davenport, Foundation member of Tulare, California, James Goins and Mary Ann Kincaid Goins died there of cholera, along with three of their five children about 1847.

Surviving children born to James Goins and Mary Ann Kincaid Goins include:

Martha Goins born about 1839
John F. Goins born about 1842

Martha Goins, daughter of James Goins and Mary Ann Kin­caid Goins, was born about 1839 in Lincoln County. After her parents and siblings died in 1847, whe was brought to Davidson County, Tennessee by her mother’s sister, Harriet Kincaid Smith and her husband John Smith on a wagontrain. She was enumerated there in her uncle’s household in the 1850 census of Davidson County as an 11-year-old.

Martha Gowens and John F. Gowens were recorded in the 1850 census of Davidson County, Household 975, living in the household of John Smith. The household was recorded as:

“Smith, John 28, born in TN, laborer, illiterate
Kinkaid, Joseph 20, born in North Carolina
Mary A. 30, born in North Carolina
Gowens, Martha 11, born in North Carolina
John F. 8, born in North Carolina”

“Martha Gowens” was married there January 2, 1855 to Morris Powell, according to “Davidson County, Tennessee Marriages, 1838-1863” by Byron Sistler. Children born to them are unknown.

John F. Goins, son of James Goins and Mary Ann Kincaid Goins, was born in 1842 in Lincoln County. When his parents and siblings died of cholera in 1847, he was cared for by a Kincaid aunt, a sister of his mother. When the family re­moved to Nashville, Tennessee, his aunt, a single lady, took him along on the wagontrain.

On the trek to Tennessee, his aunt received a marriage proposal, “if she would get rid of the kid.” John F. Goins was promptly put off the wagon by the side of the road. His married aunt, Harriet Kincaid Smith picked him up. He was enumerated at age eight in the Smith household in the 1850 census. Upon the death of John Smith, John R. Goins worked to support his aunt.

John F. Goins was married there in November 1860 to Julia Ann T. Williams who was born in Tennessee to Tom “Cherokee” Williams and Mary Williams, according to the re­search of E. Carla Davenport. She wrote, July 6, 1995, “John was tall, slender, fair skinned, light blue eyes with chiseled features. He was a laborer, a farmer and finally a prosperous grocer.”

Children born to John F. Goins and Julia Ann T. Williams Goins include:

John Goins born about 1868
Caldona “Dona” Goins born about 1879

John Goins, son of John F. Goins and Julia Ann T. Williams Goins, was born in Davidson County about 1868. Later he re­moved to Texas. E. Carla Davenport wrote July 6, 1995 that in 1968 she interviewed John Goins at age 96 in Bridgeport, Texas. She wrote, “He was blind, but his hearing was still good, and his memory outstanding. I have checked the family information he gave me and have found it to be accurate.” He died in 1974 at 102.

Caldona “Dona” Goins, daughter of John F. Goins and Julia Ann T. Williams Goins, was born in Davidson County about 1879. She was married about 1898 to Cyrus Warner Clark who was born in 1870 in Michigan to Ambrose Rosher Clark and Bathia Diantha Barr Clark. They removed to Texas.

Children born to Cyrus Warner Clark and Caldona “Dona” Goins Clark include:

Genevieve Delores Clark born in 1909

Genevieve Delores Clark, daughter of Cyrus Warner Clark and Caldona “Dona” Goins Clark, was born in Texas in 1909. She was married about 1928 to Jeffrey Ludwell Davenport who was born in Oklahoma in 1906 to Charles Trousdale Davenport and Ettie Elizabeth Richey.

Children born to Jeffrey Ludwell Davenport and Genevieve Delores Clark Davenport include:

Warner T. Davenport born in 1935

Warner T. Davenport, son of Jeffrey Ludwell Davenport and Genevieve Delores Clark Davenport, was born in 1935. He was married about 1948, wife’s name Carla. In 1995 they live in Tulare, California where they are active in the research of the Goins family.

John M. Goins was born May 29, 1811, according to David Goings, a descendant of Orlando, Florida. He was married October 5, 1833 to Mary “Polly” Clippard, according to “Marriages of Tryon and Lincoln Counties, North Carolina” by Curtis Bynum. She was born March 2, 1816.

“John Goin” was shown as the head of a household in the 1840 census of Lincoln County, page 74:

“Gouns, John white male 30-40
white female 20-30
white male 5-10
white female 0-5
white male 0-5”

He was a farmer and the notation “Upper Regiment Militia” appeared opposite his name in the census. His location was near that of Oran Gouins [Goans], page 81, whose entry also carried the notation “Upper Regiment Militia.” Oran Gouins is regarded as a kinsman.

Cleveland County, North Carolina was organized in the following year, and John M. Goins in 1841 found himself in the new county.

“John Gowen” was enumerated October 1, 1850 as the head of a household in the census of Cleveland County, Household 1212-1212, page 198:

“Gowen, John, 36, millwright, born in NC,
Polly 33, born in NC
Joseph 16, farmer, born in NC
Mitchel 12, born in NC
Daniel 11, born in NC
John 10, born in NC
Lucinda 5, born in NC
Francis 1, born in NC, male”

John M. Goins reappeared June 11, 1860 as the head of Household 161-161:

“Goins, John M. 49, millwright, born in NC
Mary 33, born in NC, illiterate
Joseph 26, born in NC, $125 personal
property, illiterate
Michael 18, born in NC
Nancy 22, born in NC, illiterate
John C. 14, born in NC
Lucinda 12, born in NC
Daniel 10, born in NC
Benjamin F. 8, born in NC
Miles H. 6, born in NC
Philip E. 4, born in NC
Mary E. 2, born in NC
Sophie 3/12, born in NC”

David Goings made some observations about the census enumerations.

“I have an explanation which would reconcile the 1840, 1850, and 1860 census information with the information which Lianne Longmire obtained from her cousin Henry Lee Goins, Sr., now deceased, who had lived with his grandmother Martha Lucinda “Cindy” Goins who was a daughter of John M. and Mary Goins.

Henry Lee Goins had stated that there was only one John and only one Daniel. He also stated that Benjamin F[ranklin], Francis, Doctor and Frank are all the same child. He was born, named and called Frank and everything else was an add-on.

I have listed and annotated the 1840, 1850, and 1860 census information to show how the information on the 11 children of John and Mary can be reconciled.

1840 1850 1860

John Gouns 30-40 John Gowen 36 John M. Goins 49
Female 20-30 Polly 33 Mary 33
Male 5-10 Joseph 16 Joseph 26
Female 0-5 Nancy 14* Nancy 22**
Male 0-5 Mitchel 12 Micheal 18**
Daniel 11 Daniel 10**
John 10 John C. 14
Lucinda 3 Lucinda 12
Francis 1 Benjamin F. 8
Miles H. 6
Philip E. 4
Mary E. 2
Sophie 3/12

*Nancy was omitted from her family 1213 enumeration and was enumerated with family number 1220.

**Micheal and Nancy were not listed according to birth order. I suspect that Daniel was also listed out of birth order and that the informant for the 1860 census could not supply the correct ages which could have caused the census taker to use the numbers 2 4 6 8 10 12 14 for these seven children as just a guess to fill in the census form. I also suspect that the ages of Daniel and John were overstated in the 1850 census since they do not exist in the 1840 census.

My updated list of the birth of the 11 children of John M. and Mary Goins would be:

Joseph Goins c1834
Nancy Goins c1836
Michael [Mitchel] Goins c1838
Daniel Goins c1841
John C. Goins c1843
Martha Lucinda “Cindy” Goins April 16, 1847
Benjamin Franklin “Frank” Goins January 16, 1849
Miles Henderson Goins January 31, 1852
Philip E. Goins February 19, 1856
Mary E. Goins c1858
Sophia “Sophie” Goins March 1860

John M. Goins died November 22, 1869. Mary “Polly” Clippard Goins appeared June 30, 1870 as the head of Household 62-98 in Golden Valley township of adjoining Rutherford County, North Carolina:

“Goins, Mary 44, born in NC, keeping house,
Martha 22, born in NC
Doctor 19, born in NC, farming
Miles H. 17. born in NC, working on farm
Philip 15, born in NC
Mary 12, born in NC
Sophia 10, born in NC”

On June 11, 1880 “Mary Gowens” was emumerated as the head of a Household 86-86 in the Brindletown township of Burke County, North Carolina, Enumeration District 48, page 9:

“Gowens, Mary 65, born in NC, illiterate, farmer,
widow
Mary E. 25, born in NC, daughter,
illiterate

The household of her daughter, “Lucinda Gowens,” No. 67-87. adjoined hers:

“Gowens, Lucinda 31, laborer, single
Mary L. 6, daughter
Lois 4, daughter
Guirda 1, daughter”

Mary “Polly” Clippard Goins died April 11, 1887 probably in Burke County in the home of her son, Miles Henderson Goins who was enumerated there in 1880. She was interred at Silvercreek Baptist Church Cemetery in Morganton, North Carolina in Burke County.

David Goings wrote:

“According to ‘American Given Names’ by George R. Stewart and the ‘Dictionary of First Names’ by Alfred J. Kolatch, Polly was a variation of Mary. This would help confirm that Polly and Mary are the same woman in spite of the age discrepancies in the 1850 and 1860 census records. Mary ‘Polly’ Clippard could be the daughter of John Clipard and Nancy Lailors who were married in Lincoln County, NC October 15, 1814. There are several marriages of Clipard, Clippard, Clipperd, Going, Goings, and Goins listed in the book ‘Marriages of Tryon and Lincoln Counties.'”

David Goings continued:

“The name variants which have been encountered in records concerning this branch include Gowen, Gowens, Goun, Gouns, Goins, and Goings. The 1850 Cleveland County census, page 198 on the microfilm, shows a spelling of Gowen. Page number 24 of the 1860 Cleveland County census shows a spelling of Goins. Page number 6 of the 1880 Brindletown Township, Burke County census shows a spelling of Gowens. Sheet number 25 of the 1900 Henrietta, Rutherford County census shows a spelling of Goins.

Books such as ‘An Etymological Dictionary of Family Names’ by William Arthur, ‘These Names Of Ours’ by Augustus William Dellquest, ‘The Story Of Surnames’ by William Dodgson Bowman, ‘History Through Surnames’ by W. O. Hassall, ‘How You Got Your Name’ by James Pennethorne Hughes, and ‘Surnames Of The United Kingdom’ by Henry Harrison all seem to agree that the root name is Gow [Gaelic for Smith].

The Scottish and Irish patronymic forms would have in­cluded Gowen and MacGowen. The genitive ‘s’ could have formed the Gowens surname which was used by my forefathers. The name appears to have been phoneti­cally Americanized into Goins. My grandfather added the extra ‘g’ which resulted in the spelling Goings.

There are possible discrepancies in the 1840 census enumeration of John Gouns. This household was com­posed of one white male 30-40 [John, May 29, 1811], one white female 20-30 [Mary ‘Polly’, March 2, 1816], one white male 5-10 [Joseph, b1834], one white male under five [Mitchel, b1838], and one white female under 5 [Nancy, bc1836].

If this household is John M. Goins, then the 1850 Daniel age 11 would have to be in error or this 1840 census record would have to be in error. I also must wonder if the 1860 Michael is the 1850 Mitchell; if the 1860 John C. is the 1850 John or were there more omissions or slipups like Nancy being enumerated with family 1220 in the 1850 census of Cleveland County, North Carolina.

One could use the theory that these listings of children represent them chronologically according to their se­quence of birth. Using this logic the 1860 Daniel could be the 1850 Francis or the 1850 Francis may have been a child who died before the 1860 census. Also, the 1850 Daniel Gowen age 11 would then appear to be missing between Mitchell/Micheal and John/John C.

I have noticed in my research of other branches that when a child has died at an early age the parents will sometimes reuse the name on a subsequent child. Ac­cording to Henry Lee Goins, who had lived with his grandmother Lucinda Goins, there was only one Daniel and only one John who later shows as John C.

The “North Carolina Troops 1861-1865, Infantry,” Volume V, Infantry’ lists a Michael H. Goins. He resided in Cleveland County where he enlisted at age 21 on 14 May 1861. I am suspicious of the stated age due to the fact that many of the men who appear in this listing were exactly 21 years old. This could be the 1860 Michael Goins age 18 of Cleveland County.

The 1910 census for Miles and Rachel Goins of Henrietta, North Carolina in Rutherford County shows a daughter-in-law Merimar [?], age 26 with granddaughter Carrie age 4. John W. Goins, son of Miles and Rachel, died on 11 December 1906 at age 29 according to his tombstone at the Providence United Methodist Church cemetery in Hen­rietta, NC. Therefore, he could be the father. On the back of his tombstone is Pearlie V. daughter of J. W. Goins and Wife born December 26, 1901 and died July 11, 1902. John W. is single in the 1900 census for Miles and Rachel Goins of Henrietta, NC. I do not have any further information which would confirm the above persons as being one family.

One of the daughters of Miles and Rachel Goins married John C. Hall. I believe this to be the John C. Hall who was born April 4, 1885 and died December 10, 1957 and is interred at the Providence United Methodist Church cemetery in Henrietta.

This daughter went by the name of Kate. This family number 300 is enumerated January 22, 1920 in Limestone township of Cherokee County, South Carolina. John C. Hall is listed as being 34 and Kate as being 36. I do not know which of the listed daughters is actually she.”

Of him, David Goings wrote:

“I have noticed on several branches of ancestors from SC and NC that it was apparently popular to name children after famous people. In the 1860 census for John M Goins of Cleveland County, NC there is a Benjamin F Goins age 8. In the 1870 census for Mary Goins of Golden Valley township, Rutherford County, NC there is a Doctor Goins age 19. In the 1880 census of Brindleton Township Burke County, NC there is a Franklin Gowens age 30. His death certificate of 8 July 1929 in Morganton, Burke County, NC lists his name as Doctor Franklin Goins.

According to Henry Lee Goins, who had lived with his grandmother Lucinda Goins, Benjamin F. and Doctor Franklin are same person.

In the ‘Dictionary of American Biography,’ Volume III Benjamin Franklin was also referred to or known as Doctor Franklin. As a child Benjamin Franklin Goins may have adopted the nickname ‘Doctor Franklin’ after the famous Benjamin Franklin.”

Doctor Benjamin Franklin Goins was married about 1873 to Sarah Jane Hines. They were enumerated in the 1880 census as Household 76-76:

“Gowens, Franklin 30, born in NC, farmer, illiterate
Sarah J. 20, born in NC, wife, illiterate
John S. 1, born in NC, son”

Phillip Goins, brother to Doctor Benjamin Franklin Goins, was the head of Household 77-77 adjoining. Doctor Benjamin Franklin Goins died in Burke County July 8, 1929.

Children born to Doctor Benjamin Franklin Goins and Sarah Jane Hines Goins, according to David Goings include:

John W. 3, born in NC, son
Junie C. 1, born in NC, daughter”

He reappeared June 22, 1900 in the census of Rutherford County, North Carolina, Enumeration District 139, page 25:
