Revolutionary War Pension of Levi Goines
Declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the acts of Congress for the benefit of Revolutionary Soldiers.
State of North Carolina
County of Moore
On this 26th day of April AD1852 personally appeared before the court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions held for the county and State of aforesaid, Levi Goines a resident of said County of Moore, and State of N.C. aged, about ninety years, who being first duly sworn according to Law, doth on his oath, make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit, of the provision made by the acts of Congress for Soldiers who served in the Revolutionary war. That he volunteered in Fairfield County, State of South Carolina, and agreed to serve until the end of the war, the time he entered the service he does not recollect, but believes it was about the time that the British took Charleston that he served as a private in a Company Commanded by Captain John Gray and was attached to a Regiment which was Commanded by Col. John Winn, and Gen. Richard Winn. He continues in actual service for about the time of twelve months though his recollection is not very distinct as to the time he served but he was honorably discharged as he believes, at the close of the sad Revolutionary War by his said Captain, having been marched back to said Fairfield County, which was also the residence of his Captain. He obtained no written discharge. He was engaged in a battle near the confluence of the Congaree and Santee Rivers. Gen. Lee he (note at bottom of page reads “He thinks two year, but is determined to be written bounds”) believes was the commander though his memory as to this is indistinct. Says the town surrendered here without much fighting. His services was entirely confined to the Sate of South Carolina, marching from Wyns borough to the Congaree Fort. And various other parts of said state under his officers. He recollects the names of many officers and soldiers with whom he served but does not know any regulars the following are some of them. Gen. Sumpter, Majr John Pearson, William W. Morey, James Steel, Joseph Kennedy, John Greggs, Liut Andrew Gray, & Saml Croslin (the latter was a regular). He knows of no person living, whose testimony he can procure who can testify to his service having removed from the state of South Carolina to North Carolina Moore County soon after the close of the Revolutionary War where he has resided ever since he has never been positive until recently that he was entitled to a Pension. Several years since a gentleman informed him that he was entitled to anything and made no further effort until now. He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension except the present and declares that his name is not on the pension roll of the agency of any state.
Sworn to and subscribed the day and year aforesaid in open court.

On this 19th day of February A.D. 1852 personally appeared before me a justice of the peace, within and for the County and the state aforesaid Duncan Murchison, who, being duly scorn according to Law, declares that he has been acquainted with Levi Goines for forth five years during which time he has resided in the County and state aforesaid. That when he came to this county he understood and believed that he came from the state of South Carolina. He is a man of good character where oath may be relied on, he is reputed to have been a soldier in the Revolutionary War while living in south Carolina of which there is no doubt.

The declaration of Levi Goines, a Revolutionary Soldier, with the proof of his services here unto annexed, is respectfully submitted for you consideration, it is believed that under the several acts of Congress he is entitled to a Pension for life from the 4th day of March 1831. To back pay since that time and to bounty lands having volunteered during the war and served as he believes until its close or until discharged by his officers which several claims he respectfully asks the department to allow him. He has no living nor documentary evidence of his services but has transmitted a correct statement under oath showing as near as frail memory will allow the time place and manner of his services the officer under whom he served and with whom he was acquainted. He also produces the certificate of three of the most respectable and intelligent men in his county who establish beyond doubt his food character and general reputation as a soldier and I imagine there are but few of those Veterans who have been mercifully spared until this day that would swear falsely. This proof I trust will be sufficient to establish his claim. Time has so reduced the number of Veterans and of the witnesses of their services and sufferings that to require of them positive proof independently of their own statement would be to deprive them of the benefit of the act. An early investigation of this claim is respectfully solicited. If consistent with the regulations of the department, his humble condition in life and very feeble health require it. All of which is respectfully subscribed. My address is Carthage, N.C.

On the 28th day of June A.D. 1852 personally appeared before me a justice of the peace within and for the county and state aforesaid Gen W. D. Dawd who being duly sworn according to law declared that he is well acquainted with Levi Goines of said county and from his general character has no hesitation in saying that he is entitled to full credit upon his oath. That he has recently been requested to examine said Goines relation to his services as a soldier in the Revolutionary war. That he has examined and conversed with him on that subject at various times and with great particularity and has no doubt that said Goines volunteered in the state of So. Carolina for and during the war and continued in actual service in the Revolutionary war for nearly or quite two years. That he inquired of said Goines when he entered the service. Said he could not tell but it was about the time the British took Charleston that he inquired what was his age now, he said he was ninety years this month. That he discovered he discovered he must have been under twenty one years when Charleston was surrendered to the British, that without making a single interaction to said Goines of that fact (nor can he read a word of history) that he inquired how old he was when he volunteered, to which he replied that he was about nineteen years old, that he then referred to the history of the revolution and found that the time Charleston was surrendered (12th May 1780). Said Goines was about nineteen. That he then inquired what general officers he knew. He said Green, Sumpter, Wynn, Lee. That he then inquired what battles he was in. He said he was in but one which was at the Cangaree fort. That he again referred to the history and finds that this fort was called Moltes near the confluence of the Congaree & Santee Rivers. Gen Lee was dispatched to this place. That from these facts together with many other incidents of said war related by said Goines. The conclusion was irresistible that said Goines is one of these Veterans who stood up for his country in the hour of danger and has never yet received a pension. That said Goines with his aged companion are living alone in a very humble condition in life barely able to afford themselves the comforts which their advanced age require. That it is in the universal opinion of all who conversed with him that he was a faithful soldier in the Revolutionary war.

By reference to history I find that the battle of Kings Mountain was fought 7th October 1780 after which Lord Cornwallis left Charlotte and fell back to Winnsboro: the very place and years that Mr. Goines mentions in his declaration

That he has no doubt of that fact. He is a man about ninety years of age.

Dear Sir.
Some months since I presented (through Gen Dockery) to the department the declaration of Levi Goines a soldier in the war of the Revolution asking to be allowed a pension for his services in said war. I stated in my letter that the advanced age and feeble health of the old Veteran presents strong claims to the department for an early investigation. I have waited with great patience and as yet the department has not seen fit to address me on the subject. If there is any informality in the declaration or any lack of testimony that prevents the claim being allowed will the department please to inform me or if it has not yet been investigated or has been allowed and no information given. I ask respectfully to be informed thereof.
Very Respectfully

1794 – William Goyens – born (Nacodoches Tx later in life – black helped Texas)
William Goyens, a black man, who settled in Nacogdoches, TX during Spanish rule was born in Moore Co, NC in 1794. He was the son of William Goings, a free mulatto, and a white woman. He came to TX in 1820. In 1832, he married Mary Pate Sibley, a white woman. She had one son named Henry, but William and Mary had no children. A Dr. Sibley was Pres. Thos. Jefferson’s Indian Agent and confidant living in Natchitoches, LA Perhaps there is a connection. (Ref: The New Handbook of Texas, Vol. 3, The Texas State Historical  Moore Co, NC.   http://lumbeeindiansandgoinsfamily.blogspot.com/2007/11/moore-county-nc-early-records.html

1794 – (birth year) – GOYENS, WILLIAM (1794-1856). William Goyens (or Goings), early Nacogdoches settler and businessman, was born in Moore County, North Carolina, in 1794, the son of William Goings, a free mulatto, and a white woman. He came to Texas in 1820 and lived at Nacogdoches for the rest of his life. Although he could not write much beyond his signature, he was a good businessman. He was a blacksmith and wagonmaker and engaged in hauling freight from Natchitoches, Louisiana. On a trip to Louisiana in 1826, he was seized by William English, who sought to sell him into slavery.qv In return for his liberty, Goyens was induced to deliver to English his slave woman and to sign a note agreeing to peonage for himself, though reserving the right to trade on his own behalf. After his return to Nacogdoches, he successfully filed suit for annulment of these obligations.
During the Mexican Texasqv era, Goyens often served as conciliator in the settlement of lawsuits under the Mexican laws. He was appointed as agent to deal with the Cherokees, and on numerous occasions he negotiated treaties with the Comanches and other Indians, for he was trusted not only by them but also by the Mexicans and Anglo-Americans in East Texas. He also operated an inn in connection with his home near the site of what is now the courthouse in Nacogdoches. In 1832 he married Mary Pate Sibley, who was white. Sibley had one son, Henry Sibley, by a former marriage, but Goyens and Mary had no children.
During the Texas Revolution,qv Goyens was given the important task of keeping the Cherokees friendly with the Texans, and he was interpreter with Gen. Sam Houstonqv and his party in negotiating a treaty. After the revolution he purchased what was afterwards known as Goyens’ Hill, four miles west of Nacogdoches. He built a large two-story mansion with a sawmill and gristmill west of his home on Moral Creek, where he and his wife lived until their deaths. During his later life Goyens amassed considerable wealth in real estate, despite constant efforts by his white neighbors to take away what he was accumulating. He always employed the best lawyers in Nacogdoches, including Thomas J. Rusk and Charles S. Taylor,qqv to defend him and was generally successful in his litigation. He died on June 20, 1856, soon after the death of his wife; they were both buried in a cemetery near the junction of Aylitos Creek with the Moral. At his grave a marker was erected by the Texas Centennialqv Commission in 1936. Many traditions grew up in Nacogdoches about this unusual man, and sometimes it is hard to tell just what is true and what is tradition.

Sonia Parsons Haga wrote April 25, 1997:

“My granny has a book on Moore County, North Carolina census records and one on cemetery records. Both include Waldens and Goins who apparently stayed closely together. They were described as Mulatto, Melungeon or Free Colored, depending on who you talked to. There is a Goins-Walden Cemetery. In the early 1900s, my family was living in the black section of High Point, North Carolina “on the tracks” as I was told. The Walden family supposedly came from Southampton County, Virginia via Chatham, Moore, Randolph and Guilford Counties, North Carolina. The surname was originally Chavis and was changed to Walden. The first was John Chavis who became John Chavis Walden.”

“Ancient Records of Moore County, North Carolina” by Rassie Wicker describes The Goins, Chavis and Walden families:

“The racial origin of the Goings [Goins], Chavis and Waldon[en] families is as mysterious and debatable as that of the Robeson County [Lumbee] Indians. These two people have much in common, especially if the older generation is considered, in both physical appear-ance and social habits. Within the recollection of the writer, which reaches back some seventy years, they were a people apart; a clannish set who married within their own tribes, and seldom associated with either whites or Negroes. In later years, there has been exten-sive intermarriage with the Negro race, to the extent that some families bearing those names are as black as pot, while others would be classified as light mulatto, and still retains the distinct physiognomy of their an-cestors. This is especially true of the Goingses.

The 1790 census lists only two Goings families in the state; both in Moore County. Both families were headed by William Goings, but one family was white, while the other is entered along with the Lockileers, Oxendines and others of the Robeson county Indians. That these two entries are not mere duplicates is proven by the fact that the white William Goings was later made a Justice of the Peace. What became of this family, the writer has been unable to determine.
In the 1790’s, there were six Chavis families in Cumberland; one in Currituck, one in Granville but none in Moore County. This clan seems to have been the more capable and intelligent of the three. Of them; John Chavis, acquired an education; was a licensed Presbyterian minister, and conducted two schools in Raleigh for several years; one for negroes and the other for white children, the latter being patronized by the better families in the Capitol City. All these Chavis families were entered in the census on par with the Goings and Waldons.

Of the Waldons, the 1790 census lists three families in Northampton and one each Warren, Sampson and Martin counties, but none in Moore.

Some years ago there appeared an article in the “Saturday Evening Post” concerning a band of people living on the Clinch River in north-central Tennessee in exactly the same manner as the Robeson County Indians. In fact, by changing a few minor paragraphs, one could well have supposed the writer was relating the story of the Lumbees. These people, who called themselves “Malungins” had their own schools and churches as did the Lumbees at that time.”

Adolph Dial wrote in “The Only Land I Know: A History of the Lumbee Indians:”

“Harrassment of Lumbees in the ante-bellum period was both legal and economic. In 1835 Charles Oxendine, a Lumbee, physically attacked Alfred Lowry, another Lumbee, and was taken to court on charges of assault and battery, trespassing, and disturbing the peace. Oxendine pleaded guilty and was fined fifteen dollars, which he was unable to pay.

Invoking an 1831 law, the judge then ruled that since the defendant could not pay his fine, the sheriff of the county should ‘Hire him out to any person who will pay the fine for his services for the shortest space of time.’ Oxendine, believing that the law which permitted the practice of ‘hiring out’ violated his rights as a free man and was therefore unconstitutional, appealed his case to the North Carolina Supreme Court,

In the Case of the State Vs. Oxendine the Supreme Court evaded the question of the validity of the law, on a technical point. It ruled that the penalty of ‘hiring out’ could be imposed only when the defendant had been ‘convicted’ of a violation of the criminal laws of the state. The court further decreed that a ‘conviction’ only occurred when there was a confession or a trial in which the facts of the case were argued. Because, Oxendine pleaded guilty, he was not technically convicted. [page 44].”
