GEORGIA

Georgia from 1732 to 1789

By Merle M. Baker, Associate Professor, History
Abraham Baldwin College, Tifton, Georgia

In 1732 the King of England gave a grant of land in southern North America to twenty trustees for a period of 21 years. After that period of time the territory would revert to the Crown of England. This took place because there was a need for defense of the southern colonies in America, especially South Carolina, and at the same time there was a need to help the distressed debtors of England. There was to be no self government, along with no liquor, and negro slavery was prohibited.

One hundred fourteen people left England November 16 1732 on the “Anne.” Savannah was founded February 12, 1733 when James Oglethorpe and the others arrived in what we know as Georgia. Many other groups came later.

The Trustees for the colony resigned in 1752 with the colony reverting back to the King of England. Much of this information can be found in the Colonial Records of Georgia.

By 1754 the Georgia colony was under the Crown of England. Not only was the governor appointed by the King, but he also appointed an Executive Council of fourteen for the colony.

The first self government in Georgia was the Lower House of Assembly created by the royal government. There were eighteen members elected by the people. In order to be a member of the Lower House the man had to own 500 acres of land in any part of the Province. The voters had to possess fifty acres of land in the parish or district wh [see copy]

Georgia was a sovereign state from July 4, 1776 until 1781 when the Articles of Confederation went into effect. Georgians formed the Georgia Provincial Congress on January 20, 1776. During February, the Provincial Congress sent delegates from Georgia to the Second Continental Congress. The Georgia Provincial Congress adopted a document to serve as a state constitution on April 15, 1776. It was a temporary document called “the Rules and Regulations”. With eight brief parts and a preamble it established the executive, legislative und judicial branches of government. All the power was in the hands of the legislative branch which was called the Provincial Congress. They wanted nothing that smacked of a monarchy.

Georgia drew up her first Constitution on October 1, 1776 in Savannah. It was in effect from 1777 until 1789. There was no popular vote on the Constitution. It was declared legal by the Georgia Convention. The people were sovereign in the document. There was also a clear separation of powers between the executive, legislative and judicial branches. Georgia was considered to be a very democratic state along with North Carolina, Delaware and Pennsylvania.

At this time, Georgia had a unicameral legislature along with Pennsylvania and Vermont. This legislature was called the House of Assembly. It consisted of 72 members. Liberty County, the largest county in the state had 14 members. Richmond, Burke, Effingham and Chatham each had 10 members. Glynn and Camden counties each had one member. The city of Savannah had four members and Sunbury had two members. The representatives were chosen annually by popular vote. In order to run for office each representative had to be a resident of the state for one year. They had to be a resident of the county for three months, except in Glynn and Camden. Each member had to be not less than 25 years of age and a protestant. The member had to own 250 acres of land or property worth £25.

o~a~n had to be twenty‑one, a male, white inhabitant of the stata~e had to pos‑ r sess property valued at ten pounds or more. He was lia~le to pay taxes in this state, and had to be a rcsident ~f the state‑ for six months. Mechanics were exempted from property qualifications.

Each voter took an oath. No person who held any title of nobility could vote. No military‑uniform was to be worn while exercising^ the right to vote. If a person were eligible to vo~ and did not exer­cise his right, he was liable to be fined for not voting, not to exceed five pounds.

The justices of the peace in each county, appointed by the House of Assembly, were to hold the election and provide the ballot box. Once the election was over, the justices were to count the votes in public view.
The Executive Council consisted of 12 men. Two from each of the six largest counties. They were elected from and by the mem­bership of the Assembly. The Executive Council shared executive power with the Governor.
The Kovernor was elected by the Assembly from the membership for one year. He was eligible only one year out of three years to
serve as governor. The Governor could not grant pardons or remis~S~ ~ e
There was a ~uperior Court in each county which met two times each year. There was one Chief Justice for the state. An act was passed in 1786 which gave the courts supervision over ~e ferries, roads and bridges. In 1787 an act was passed for the courts to ap­point commissioners of court houses and jails.
The Chief Justice and three or more justices in the county were appointed by the Assembly. The Chief Justice was elected annu­ally, and the others at the pleasure of the Legislature.

The Courts of Conscience or Justice Courts were continued. They could not try cases exceeding ten pounds in value.
There was a register of the probate in each county who was ap­pointed by the Assembly. They proved wills and granted letters of administration.
The Constitution called for schools in each county which would be supported by the state. It also called for trial by jury and freedom of the press, but contained no bill of rights. The four concluding paragraphs were devoted to guarantees of personal liberty.

This Constitution for Georgia can be found in “Georgia Revo­lutionary Records,” Volume I, pages 282‑298. Most Georgia libraries will have the three volumes of the revolutionary records.

Susannah Gowen was born in Virginia about 1782, according to the research of Marjorie Wright. She was married November 5, 1800 in Warren County, Georgia to Pierce Castley who operated a distillery there. She appeared in the 1850 census of Georgia, but he did not, having died prior to that time.

Susannah Gowen Castley sustained herself as a widow by con­tinuing to operate the distillery with the help of her daughters and sons-in-law. Later, completely alone, she built and oper­ated a bakery in her advanced years. She died between 1860 and 1870 in Coweta County, Georgia.

About 1819 she was married to Jason Tomlin who served an apprenticeship as a distiller in the firm of his father-in-law. Later, following the death of Pierce Castley, Jason Tomlin re­moved to a new location and took much of the distillery equip­ment with him.

Lucinda Castley, daughter of Pierce Castley and Susannah Gowen Castley, was born in 1803, probably in Warren County. About 1820 she was married to George King.

Pierce Castley, Jr, son of Pierce Castley and Susannah Gowen Castley, was born about 1804, probably in Warren County.

WILKES COUNTY, GEORGIA

Regarding the early history of Wilkes County, Col. Carroll Heard Goyne of Shreveport, Louisiana wrote:

“Part of the area that became Wilkes County was origin-ally called St. Paul’s Parish. The Ceded Lands were added in 1773, and in 1777 the area was named Wilkes County. The first fort built in the Ceded Lands was built in January 1773. It was located on Anderson’s Mill Creek, a tributary of Fishing Creek, north of present Washington, Georgia. My ancestor Charles Heard was one of the builders. He lived four miles from the fort, with no one living between him and the fort. Indians burned Charles’ home in 1776 and stole a Negro wo-man. That was the only slave he owned. It is my under-standing that during the Revolutionary War Wilkes County was sparsely settled. It was known as the “Hor-net’s Nest” because of the peoples’ strong opposition to the British. The Wilkes County Patriots defeated the Loyalists in the Battle of Kettle Creek in Wilkes County.”

William Goyne was one of the earliest to bear the name in Georgia. James Goyne, regarded as his brother, had preceded him to the state and may have influenced William Goyne to come to Georgia.

The colony, last to be established by the British in America, was chartered in 1732, and the first English settlement was made in 1733 by James Edward Oglethorpe at Savannah. Oglethorpe. His trustees prohibited ownership of slaves in the colony, and the population grew slowly. In 1753 Oglethorpe’s charter expired, and Georgia became a royal colony. Immediately planters from Virginia and the Carolinas began settling in the Piedmont plateau of northern Georgia, bringing with them their slaves.

Phillip Going, a Wilkes County freeholder, was one of the first residents of Wilkes County of interest to Gowen chroniclers. He signed a petition to the Continental Congress on August 5, 1777, asking for the removal from command of General McIntosh, according to the research of Col. Goyne.

The population grew from the few hundred settlers that Oglethorpe introduced to 83,000 in 1790. Revolutionary soldiers were offered generous land grants in Georgia, and by 1830, when the Indians started moving west, over a half million people lived in Georgia, principally along the seacoast and the Savannah River which was established as the boundary with South Carolina.

William Goyne and his kinsmen simply crossed the Savannah River and obtained land in Wilkes County, Georgia. He was born about 1732 in Lunenburg County, Virginia, based on the tithe list of that county, according to the research of Col. Carroll Heard Goyne, Jr, a descendant of Shreveport, Louisiana. He lived in Rutherford County, North Carolina prior to his removing to Wilkes County.

William Goyne was first married about 1751 in Lunenburg County, wife’s name Hester. That is the year he first appeared on the tithe list as living apart from his father. His first wife’s name appears as Hester in an August 23, 1779 deed in Rutherford County, North Carolina.

When Warren County, Georgia was created, primarily with land from Wilkes County in 1793, “William Going, Moses Going and Jesse Going” were listed as taxpayers on the county’s first tax rolls in 1793.

“Abstracts of Tax Records for Wilkes County for 1785-1805,” list “Goings” [various spellings] as follows: Aaron, Drury, Hardy, Henry, James, Jesse, John, Moses, Reuben, Samuel, Thomas, William and William Jr.”

Col. Goyne wrote:

“Jesse was listed for 1793 only. He was living in Capt. Smith’s District [II-3] and was assessed one poll. Mo-ses was listed in 1793 as living in Capt. Hubbard’s Dis-trict [LL-14]. He was taxed on 500 acres in Wilkes County; 684 acres in Franklin County; and 208 acres in Greene County. In 1794 Moses was living in Capt. Hubbard’s District [LL-8] in Warren County. He was taxed on the same land, and paid one poll. William was not found in the tax list of 1793. In 1794 he was living in Capt. Hubbard’s District [LL-9] in Warren County and was assessed one poll.”

William Goyne was remarried about 1795 to Agnes Nancy Schroeder who was born in Pennsylvania in 1768 to Alexander Schroeder and Isabella Schroeder. William Goyne signed for a portion of Isabella Schroeder’s estate for Agnes Nancy Schroe-der Goyne in November 1796.

Regarding her surname, Col. Goyne wrote June 11, 2002:

“Agnes “Nancy” Stroder’s name is spelled in a variety of ways in the records. I have settled on the “Stroder” spelling because the original marriage documents for two of Nancy’s brother’s are in the North Carolina Ar-chives, and both documents show the name as “Stroder.” Also, a long-time Stroder researcher who spells her name “Strawder,” informed me that she believes the original spelling of her family name was Stroder.”

“William Goynne” was a resident of Warren County, January 4, 1816 when he wrote his will:

“The Last Will & Testament of William Goynne.

1st. I Will that so much of my horses and cattle shall be sold will be sufficient to satisfy all my just debts.

Apparently William Goynne died in the summer of 1817 be­cause his will was probated September 1, 1817, according to Warren County Will Book B, page 40.

Taliaferro County, located between Warren and Wilkes Coun­ties, was established in 1825, and some of the Goynes found themselves in the new county. Agnes Nancy Schroeder Goyne was enumerated there in the 1830 census as the head of a household composed of:

“Goyne, Nancy white female 50-60
white male 20-30
white male 10-15
free colored female 10-24”

Nearby was enumerated the household of her son, Hiram Davis Goyne.

In 1838 “Nancy Goyne” received a letter of dismission, along with her son Tyra Alexander Goyne and his wife “Polly” Goyne from the Baptist Church of Christ at Ebenezer, Georgia

Nancy Schroder Goyne was enumerated in the 1860 census of Union Parish, Louisiana living in the home of Henry Bradford Tyra Goyne, a grandson. He had arrived in Louisiana about 1849 and was recorded as the head of the household:

Stephen 12, born in Georgia
Susan 8, born in Louisiana

Col. Carroll Heard Goyne wrote, “Hardy was listed as a “wid-ow[er?]” in the November 25, 1797 edition of the “Augusta Chronicle.” This may explain why William Goyne listed Hardy’s two sons in his will, but did not list his other grand-children. It follows then that “Caty Goyne” of Hancock County church records was Hardy’s second wife, and not the mother of John and Mount Herman.”

Children born to Hardy Goyne and Caty Goyne are unknown.

Their route led along the old road to Montevallo where they were joined by their surgeon, Dr. Mardis, former member of Congress, and where they camped the first night. Each man carried his own rations which had been prepared for him by loving hands before setting out.

Leaving Montevallo, they went directly to Montgomery, camping out one night. There they were received by the authorities and assigned to duty. There they were given arms and ammunition, and in a few days were on a rapid march for the Creek country.

Their service in the war was short, for the war itself was of short duration, being only three months, the period for which they had enlisted. The character of the service was in no respect different from that of ordinary frontier service; and there are no records of any particular acts of heroism accredited to this company or its members. But they were in several brief engagements, underwent without complaint, several forced marches, and several of its members were commended as skilled and brave in the execution of special duty assigned them.

The company lost none of its members by death, but unused to the sultry sun of the southern part of the state, in many there were planted the germs of fatal disease that made itself felt years afterward. They received as a reward for their services, the sum of $10 per month and their food. At or near Montgomery they were mustered out of service, and in straggling bodies, returned home, having tasted the glories of war and found it more dreadful than inviting.’

Who were these men, what of prominence did they achieve and what became of them? Harrison W. Goyne was a clerk of the County Court. In 1831 he sat for Jefferson County in the House of Representatives, and in 1836 he represented the county in the State Senate. After the return home, the Goyne brothers, Harrison and Andrew, nicknamed “Cull,” moved away. The only living member of this command, John Thompson, was born February 25, 1818, and hence will soon be in his seventy-fourth year.”

“Harrison Goyne” filed a Revolutionary claim with the Republic of Texas Secretary of State following the nation wresting independence from Mexico. The account was audited by James B. Johnson, according to a compilation prepared by the Texas State Library & Archives, Voucher No. 60, Microfilm Reel 52, Frame No. 310.

Larry E. Caver, Jr. transcribed a letter written February 3, 1876 to the editor of the “Birmingham Iron Age” which mentioned the death of Harrison W. Goyne in 1849 in Texas. The newspaper was published from 1874 to 1884.

“Excerpts of Interest from “The Birmingham Iron Age”

Tyler, Texas
January 19, 1876

Dear Editor Frank:

In your paper of the 13th instant, I observe an announce-ment headed ‘Historical’ in which you state that you will soon begin the publication of sketches of the lives of those who participated in the early settle-ment and in the political transactions of Jefferson County, Alabama. I shall await impartially the appearance of your sketches. To me they will possess, I know, an indescribable charm.

I wish I could contribute something towards aiding you in this proposed interesting feature of your paper. Many of those who participated in the public affairs of Jefferson County, in the early years of its settlement, came to Texas:

General Wood, Robert Emmet Bledsoe Baylor, John Brown, Harrison W. Goyne, Simpson Robinson, Thomas M. Adkins, Emory Loyd, Henry Click, Taylor Brown, Richard Tankersly and doubtless many others.

Of these above mentioned, all are dead except Henry Click, Taylor Brown and Simpson Robinson, and I am not sure that the last named is living, though he was a year or two ago. Taylor Brown is living near Henderson, about 30 miles from this place, and was as full of vitality and fun, about two weeks ago, when I saw him, as a [colored man] ever gets of religion–and you know that is so full that he runs over occasionally. Henry Click, who used to be the best rifle shot that could be found, lives in Cherokee County. I have not seen him for two or three years. Simpson Robin-son was living in Leon County a few years ago, and had been chief justice of the county.

General Wood, who participated in what is termed the “pine knot” battle, fought at Jonesboro long before you and I were born, died and was buried near Austin, Texas, many, many years ago; John Brown [Red] died not many years ago, at Brownsboro [named for him] in Henderson County, Texas, about 20 miles west of this place.

Harrison W. Goyne died in 1849 at Lockhart, Western Tex-as in Caldwell County; Emory Loyd died near Henderson, Rusk County, about 15 years ago; Robert E. B. Baylor died near Independence, Washington County, December 31, 1873; Major Adkins died near Larissa, Cherokee County, a few years ago;

Woodson Wade I ought to have mentioned also; he is dead too. Brown, Goyne, Adkins, Robinson, Wood, Loyd and Baylor, were in official line of life in Jefferson County. Loyd, Wood, John Brown and Goyne served in the Legisla-ture, and Baylor in the Congress of the United States. Bay-lor, Wood and John Brown served in the Congress of the Republic of Texas; Judge Baylor served for 25 years or more as District Judge.

I furnish you these facts, which you can dress up if you choose, and receive as my contribution.

Why don’t you pour hot shot and Greek fire into the Radical Camp? Have they quit stealing in Alabama?

Your friend very hurriedly, but truly,

Thomas Smith”

Drury O. Goyne, son of William Goyne, was born about 1764, probably in Orange County, North Carolina, according to Phillip Carson Goins, a descendant. The 1830 census of Upson County, Georgia show his birth as between 1760 and 1770.

Col. Carroll Heard Goyne who has also researched this individual, notes that Drury O. Goyne was not the same person as Drury Goins of Chester County, South Carolina records.

“Drury Gowin” first appeared in the deed records of Wilkes County, Georgia when he purchased 100 acres in Wilkes County from Abraham McAlhattan, Sr. for £40 on December 12, 1795 “on Stephens Creek, adjacent to Moses Stephens, Wm. Evans, William Allison & Henry Thompson, originally granted to George Rutledge.”

Edward Gresham, J. P. registered the deed July 25, 1796 in Wilkes County Deed Book OO, page 26. “John Gowin,” perhaps the brother of Drury O. Goyne, was a witness to the deed.

“Drury Going” was listed as a taxpayer in the 1796 tax list of Wilkes County. He paid taxes on 100 acres on Stephens Creek. Frank Parker Hudson of Atlanta, Georgia explained the number-ing system. The two letters designate the militia district, and the number following is the sequence number of the individual as entered on the tax list:

“Drury Going, 1796-Capt. Turner’s District [MM-7], 100 acres on Stephens Creek, joins Moses Stephens.”

Drury O. Goyne continued to appear in Wilkes County tax records for several years thereafter:

“1797-Capt. Turner’s District (MM-65), 100 acres on Stephen’s Creek, joins Moses Stephens.’

The records for 1798 for MM district are missing.

“1799-Capt. Turner’s District (MM-38), 100 acres on Ste-phen’s Creek, joins Moses Stephens, granted to George Rut-ledge.

Drury O. Goyne was listed as a tax defaulter for 1799 in the April 12, 1800 edition of the “Augusta Chronicle.”

“1800–Capt. Ogletree’s District (MM-76), 100 acres on Stephen’s Creek, joins Moses Stephens, granted to George Rutledge.”

On September 11, 1801 “Drury [X] Goings” sold his 100 acres on Stephen’s Creek to David/Davis Saxon for $300. John Hen-drick and William Gammage witnessed the deed which was proved September 30, 1805, according to Wilkes County Deed Book VV, page 365.

He acquired 85 acres nearby on Stephen’s Creeek on which he paid taxes:

“1801–Capt. Ogletree’s District [MM-111], 85 acres on Stephen’s Creek, joins Wm. Evans, granted to George Rut-ledge.”

Drury O. Goyne was assessed one poll [no land] in 1802 in Capt. Ogletree’s District [MM-106] and perhaps the same in 1803. No tax records remain for the latter year.

Drury O. Goyne appeared to be single in 1797, but was married by 1802. It appears that he was the only son of William Goyne who remained in Georgia.

He was registered in the land lottery from there in 1803, No. 1188, according to the research of Timothy D. Hudson. In the lottery, it is noted that he received “Two Draws.” Two draws meant that he met certain requirements which were “free, white, 21, paid taxes, had 12 months residency in Ga., had wife and child.”

On May 20, 1803 he purchased land in Wilkes County, according to Deed Book UU, page 254:

“William Hammack conveyed to “Drury Goyne, both of Wilkes County, for $275, in Wilkes County on Rocky Creek waters, adjacent to Hail’s old line on bank of said creek, Spring Branch, to creek at head, down creek, 68 2/4 acres, being part of a tract granted to Joseph McCornmack, 9 April 1792.

William Hammack.
Witnesses:
Edward Gresham J.P.
Alexander Harper J.P.”

“Drury Goyen” was a witness to a deed April 15, 1804, ac­cording to Warren County Deed Book B, page 295. Drury Goyne of “Wilkerson County, Georgia” bought land in Baldwin County, Georgia January 10, 1809.

Drury O. Goyne was taxed on his Rocky Creek land in Wilkes County beginning in 1804:

“1804-Capt. Little’s District [RR-2], 68+ acres on Rocky Creek, joins Micajah Little, granted to Jos. Kelly.

1805-Capt. Young’s District (RR-3), 68+ acres on Rocky Creek, joins Micajah Little, granted to unknown.”

Drury O. Goyne entered the 1807 Land Lottery, and received two draws. Qualifications were the same as in 1803. Evident-ly, he was a fortunate drawer in the 1807 Land Lottery, as he was listed as living in Wilkinson County in 1809. He pur-chased land in Baldwin County January 10, 1809:

“Morgan County, Superior Court Deeds. Hardy Newson, Jr. of Warren County conveys to Drury Goyne of Wil-kinson County for $400, Lot 144, 2nd District, Baldwin County, 202.5 acres,” according to Morgan County Deed Book B, page 420. Witnesses were L. B. Little, John Goyne, his brother and Micajah Little.”

It is suggested that L. B. Little and Micajah Little were bro-thers-in-law with Drury O. Goyne.

He received, under the terms of his father’s will, written in 1816, $1.50 from the estate.

“Drury Goin” filed suit in 1810 in Clarke County, Georgia against William Blalock, according to the minutes of the Clarke County Court.

“Drewey O. Goyne” appeared in the 1820 census of Wilkes County, Georgia as the head of a household:

“Goyne, Drury white male over 45
white female over 45
white male 16-26
white male 16-18
white female 10-16
white male 10-16
white female 0-10”

“Drewry O. Goyne” was enumerated as the head of a household in the 1830 census of Wilkes County. He was also recorded as living adjacent to M[icajah?] Little in Capt. Littleberry’s District in Wilkes County and owning 100 acres of land.

John Goyne, regarded as a son of William Goyne was born about 1760 probably in North Carolina. “John Gowin” was a witness to the deed of Abraham McAlhatten, Sr. when he transferred 100 acres of land to Drury O. Goyne December 12, 1795, according to Wilkes County Deed Book OO, page 26.

He was married about 1804, wife’s name Nancy. John Goyne and Micajah Little of Wilkes County were appointed as security for the administration of the estate of Isaac Tyson, deceased September 26, 1804.

John Goyne was referred to as John “Bitnose” Goyne in the 1807 Georgia Land Lottery. At the time he was living in John Young’s District of Wilkes County, according to “Early Records of Wilkes County, Georgia” Book 1.

On January 7, 1811, John Goyne and John Little, administrators of the estate of Micajah Little, resigned, according to “Early Records of Wilkes County, Georgia” Book 1. In 1816 John Goyne received $1.50 under the terms of his father’s will.

His three youngest sons reported in the 1850 census that they were born in North Carolina from about 1812 until about 1820.

“John Gowing” was enumerated as the head of a household in the 1820 census of Greene County. “Jno. Goyen” was enumerated as the head of a household in the 1830 census of Upson County.

“Goyne, John white male 60-70
white female 50-60
white male 15-20
white male 10-15
white male 5-10”

John Goyne wrote his will April 27, 1839 in Jefferson County, and died there shortly afterward. His son John R. Goyne was named executor of the will which named “wife Nancy” as the widow of John Goyne. It was probated there November 27, 1839, according to Jefferson County Will Book 1818-1840, page 217.

Concerning the parentage of John Goyne, Charles Blakley, a descendant, wrote March 4, 2002 expressing doubt:

“I am a descendant of Harrison Goyne’s brother, John W. Goyne who was born in 1809 in Georgia. His parents were John and Nancy Goyne of Jefferson County, Alabama. I do not know that John was the son of the William Goyne who died in Warren County, Georgia. I have not found any in-formation identifying the parents of John and Nancy Goyne of Jefferson County. John died in 1839 in Jefferson County.”

Children born to John “Bit Nose” Goyne and Nancy Goyne include:

Harrison W. Goyne born about 1806
Sally Goyne born about 1808
John R. Goyne born February 18, 1809
Andrew C[olumus?] “Cull” Goyne born about 1813

He was a state senator from Jefferson County in the 1836-37 term. He was a lieutenant in the Mississippi militia in the Creek War. An article describing his military activities was published in the February 1992 edition of “Gowen Research Foundation Newsletter:”

Sen. Harrison W. Goyne Fought
In the Creek War of 1836

One hundred years ago this month, the efforts of Alabama Senator Harrison W. Goyne to raise a militia company to fight in the 1836 Creek War were described in a newspaper article. Capt. James McAdory and First Lt. Harrison W. Goyne commanded the company and were mentioned prominently in the newstory which appeared in February 17, 1892 edition of the “Birmingham Age-Herald.”

Harrison W. Goyne, son of John Goyne and Nancy Goyne, was born about 1806, probably in Warren County, Georgia. His grandfather, William Goyne had appeared in the area about 1790, based on tax records. His family removed to Jefferson County, Alabama about the time of the War of 1812.

Harrison W. Goyne was married there November 8, 1823 to Mrs. Elizabeth Riley Crawford, widow of Samuel Crawford and daughter of Joseph Riley, according to Jefferson County Marriage Book 1, pp 2 and 3. His father was his security. The will of Joseph Riley written June 7, 1826 bequeathed “my negro girl, Mary and $50 to Harrison W. Goyne for my daughter, Elizabeth Goyne,” according to Jefferson County will records.

About 1828, Harrison W. Goyne was elected clerk of the county court at Elyton. He was enumerated there as the head of a household in the 1830 census along with Benjamin Goyne, James Goyne and John Goyne, his father. In 1831 Harrison W. Goyne was elected to the Alabama House of Representatives from Jefferson County.

On September 17, 1832 Harrison W. Goyne “of Jefferson County” filed on Section 33, Township 18, Range 4W in adjoining Tuscaloosa County, according to “Old Tuscaloosa Land Office Records and Military Warrants, 1821-1855,” by Marilyn Davis Barefield.

He was a state senator from Jefferson County in the 1836-37 term. Harrison W. Goyne was identified as a “speculator of Elyton” when he was chosen as first lieutenant in the Jefferson County militia company commanded by Capt. McAdory, a planter of Jonesboro in the Creek War. His younger brother, Andrew C. “Cull” [Columbus?] Goyne served as a private in the same company which was incorporated into the Fourth Alabama Mounted Volunteers, according to “Index to Compiled Service Records, Alabama Units, Creek War, 1836-1837” by Achee and Wright. Capt. McAdory later became a colonel in the militia.

“Jefferson County Soldiers Braved
The Creek Indians in the Old Days”

By Thomas M. Owen
It is now almost 56 years, over half a century, since in the spring of 1836, Jefferson County equipped and sent out a brave and gallant company of mounted infantry to assist in protecting the inhabitants of east and southeast Alabama from Indian Savages and depredations. In the swift transit of the years its members have all gone to their last resting places, save one, and though brave in word and deed, loving their country and fighting for its protection, history contains no record of them, save in the following paragraph, which appears in a short sketch of Jefferson County by B. E. Grace, Sr, one of Jefferson County’s oldest and most honored citizens, vis:

‘About the year 1836, great excitement was caused in Jefferson County in consequence of the hostile attitude of the Seminole and Creek Indians, especially the latter. The treaty which had been recently concluded between the general Government and Indians, for their removal to the west, caused a great dissatisfaction among a large portion of them, and several murders were committed between Montgomery and Columbus, Georgia and other outrages which finally resulted in a state of war.

The governor made a call for volunteers, and Jefferson County, as usual in such cases, responded promptly, and a company of near 100 men was soon raised, and James McAdory was elected captain. I forgot the names of the other officers, or I should gladly give them, as they were a gallant set of boys and spent a hot summer in the sickly climate, at that time, of South Alabama, serving faithfully till the object of the campaign was accomplished and the hostile Creeks were captured and sent via Montgomery and Mobile by water to their new homes.

The captain and most of his men returned, but several contracted disease which finally proved fatal. The only survivor referred to above is Mr. John Thompson, a farmer living in Shade’s Valley, a few miles southeast of Bessemer, through whom many facts and incidents concerning this company are rescued from perishing.

Elyton was the county site, and the center of public spirit and intelligence as well, of Jefferson County; and when the call for volunteers was received, immediate steps were taken to call together those willing to enlist and lend assistance.

The call was distributed and the meeting to consider it was held at the county court house about April 1, 1836, when after perfection of arrangements and election of officers, all returned home to make ready for again assembling in Elyton preparatory for leaving.

The next week found a large number of men assembled, each one mounted on his own horse, ready for the march. No one, not even the officers, wore a uniform; but almost every one wore a wool hat, linsey shirt and suit of substantial homespun jeans. They remained one night in Elyton, a part lodged in the old Mallory Tavern, and a part were scattered among the hospitable homes of Col. John Martin, Williamson Hawkins and others.

Just before leaving Capt. McAdory marched his company up to the home of James Mudd, when Miss Mary Mudd, on behalf of the citizens of Elyton, presented them with a beautiful flag. The captain accepted in a few words; and soon afterwards, they rode away, leaving sad hearts behind them, but followed by good wishes and earnest prayers.

Their route led along the old road to Montevallo where they were joined by their surgeon, Dr. Mardis, former member of Congress, and where they camped the first night. Each man carried his own rations which had been prepared for him by loving hands before setting out.

Leaving Montevallo, they went directly to Montgomery, camping out one night. There they were received by the authorities and assigned to duty. There they were given arms and ammunition, and in a few days were on a rapid march for the Creek country.

Their service in the war was short, for the war itself was of short duration, being only three months, the period for which they had enlisted. The character of the service was in no respect different from that of ordinary frontier service; and there are no records of any particular acts of heroism accredited to this company or its members. But they were in several brief engagements, underwent without complaint, several forced marches, and several of its members were commended as skilled and brave in the execution of special duty assigned them.

The company lost none of its members by death, but unused to the sultry sun of the southern part of the state, in many there were planted the germs of fatal disease that made itself felt years afterward. They received as a reward for their services, the sum of $10 per month and their food. At or near Montgomery they were mustered out of service, and in straggling bodies, returned home, having tasted the glories of war and found it more dreadful than inviting.’

Who were these men, what of prominence did they achieve and what became of them? Harrison W. Goyne was a clerk of the County Court. In 1831 he sat for Jefferson County in the House of Representatives, and in 1836 he represented the county in the State Senate. After the return home, the Goyne brothers, Harrison and Andrew, nicknamed “Cull,” moved away. The only living member of this command, John Thompson, was born February 25, 1818, and hence will soon be in his seventy-fourth year.”

“Harrison Goyne” filed a Revolutionary claim with the Republic of Texas Secretary of State following the nation wresting independence from Mexico. The account was audited by James B. Johnson, according to a compilation prepared by the Texas State Library & Archives, Voucher No. 60, Microfilm Reel 52, Frame No. 310.

Larry E. Caver, Jr. transcribed a letter written February 3, 1876 to the editor of the “Birmingham Iron Age” which mentioned the death of Harrison W. Goyne in 1849 in Texas. The newspaper was published from 1874 to 1884.

“Excerpts of Interest from “The Birmingham Iron Age”

Tyler, Texas
January 19, 1876

Dear Editor Frank:

In your paper of the 13th instant, I observe an announce-ment headed ‘Historical’ in which you state that you will soon begin the publication of sketches of the lives of those who participated in the early settle-ment and in the political transactions of Jefferson County, Alabama. I shall await impartially the appearance of your sketches. To me they will possess, I know, an indescribable charm.

I wish I could contribute something towards aiding you in this proposed interesting feature of your paper. Many of those who participated in the public affairs of Jefferson County, in the early years of its settlement, came to Texas:

General Wood, Robert Emmet Bledsoe Baylor, John Brown, Harrison W. Goyne, Simpson Robinson, Thomas M. Adkins, Emory Loyd, Henry Click, Taylor Brown, Richard Tankersly and doubtless many others.

Of these above mentioned, all are dead except Henry Click, Taylor Brown and Simpson Robinson, and I am not sure that the last named is living, though he was a year or two ago. Taylor Brown is living near Henderson, about 30 miles from this place, and was as full of vitality and fun, about two weeks ago, when I saw him, as a [colored man] ever gets of religion–and you know that is so full that he runs over occasionally. Henry Click, who used to be the best rifle shot that could be found, lives in Cherokee County. I have not seen him for two or three years. Simpson Robin-son was living in Leon County a few years ago, and had been chief justice of the county.

General Wood, who participated in what is termed the “pine knot” battle, fought at Jonesboro long before you and I were born, died and was buried near Austin, Texas, many, many years ago; John Brown [Red] died not many years ago, at Brownsboro [named for him] in Henderson County, Texas, about 20 miles west of this place.

Harrison W. Goyne died in 1849 at Lockhart, Western Tex-as in Caldwell County; Emory Loyd died near Henderson, Rusk County, about 15 years ago; Robert E. B. Baylor died near Independence, Washington County, December 31, 1873; Major Adkins died near Larissa, Cherokee County, a few years ago;

Woodson Wade I ought to have mentioned also; he is dead too. Brown, Goyne, Adkins, Robinson, Wood, Loyd and Baylor, were in official line of life in Jefferson County. Loyd, Wood, John Brown and Goyne served in the Legisla-ture, and Baylor in the Congress of the United States. Bay-lor, Wood and John Brown served in the Congress of the Republic of Texas; Judge Baylor served for 25 years or more as District Judge.

I furnish you these facts, which you can dress up if you choose, and receive as my contribution.

Why don’t you pour hot shot and Greek fire into the Radical Camp? Have they quit stealing in Alabama?

Your friend very hurriedly, but truly,

Thomas Smith”

“In the last five years my husband, Ed, and I have been involved in having markers placed at my third great grand-parents grave in Meriwether County, Georgia. And we also placed markers at my great grandparents’ and two great aunts’ gravesite in Ashley County, Ar-kansas. These were for Rev. Creed Caldwell and Ra-chel Clayton Caldwell of Georgia and Rev. George W. Caldwell and Mary Elizabeth Goyne Caldwell of Arkansas. Also included were my great aunts, Julia Caldwell Norris and Cynthia Caldwell Scott.

When we were researching at the Courthouse in Meriweth-er County, we were looking for the cemetery location of my third great grandparents. The local cousins did not know the location. My husband, a pro-fessional land surveyor, found the location where they lived in the land records, and I found a cemetery book in the Probate Court Office and wrote down the infor-mation of a Caldwell-Williams Cem-etery.

We put our information together, and voila, we knew where the cemetery was. When we arrived out on a country road out of Durand, Georgia on Georgia-Pa-cific property. We walked up to the top of a wooded hill, and in those woods was the Cemetery, and we found their graves along with three of their babies and a son and his wife. We came back to Texas and had a sign made to place at the Cemetery. I had called Geor-gia-Pacific and received permission to do this.

I felt Creed and Rachel’s presence so strongly and I knew they were happy we had found them.

In Arkansas, the old marker at Rev. George W. Cald-well’s gravesite was broken and becoming unreadable. We had a local company in Ashley County place a marker in the cen-ter of the four graves.

We did not receive any tangible rewards for doing this, but we had our reward in the way it made us feel.”

I will send you family group sheets on my direct Goyne line by regular mail.

I have a listing of the free-persons-of-color residing in Columbia County, Georgia that was published in the March 10, 1819 Augusta Chronicle. They appear to be the family of Moses Going, Sr. Let me know if you can use it.

Carroll H. Goyne, Jr.

It is believed that Moses Going died about 1817 and that Ag-nes Going survived him. When the “free persons of color” were required to register in Georgia in 1819, she stated to the Columbia County Court clerk that she was 66 years old and had arrived in Georgia in 1787.

Other individuals of interest to Going/Gowen chroniclers also appeared in the “free persons of color” registration. The list of “free blacks,” compiled by W. L. Kennon, county court clerk, was printed in the “Augusta Chronicle & Gazette” in its edition of March 10, 1819:

Two years later, H. Lamar, the County Court Clerk, compiled another list of “free blacks” in Columbia County. It was pub-lished in the August 6, 1821 edition of the “Augusta Chron-icle & Gazette:”

Children born to Moses Going and Agnes Going are believed to include:

Anne Going born about 1763
John Going born about 1765
Reuben Going born about 1766
Jesse Going born about 1767
James Going born about 1768
Elizabeth Going born about 1769

Sherwood Going born about 1772
Moses Going, Jr. born about 1774
Thomas Going born about 1775
Frances “Fanny” Going born about 1785

Anne Going, [Moses6, Agnes5, Edward, Jr.4, Edward3, Wil-liam2, Mihil1] daughter of Moses Going and Agnes Going, was born about 1763 in Louisa County. She was brought to Henrico County by her mother about 1788. She was a witness to the marriage of David Going and Chloe Webb there July 17, 1789. She “being of lawful age, daughter of Agnes Goine” was married in Henrico County to Dudley Miner December 22, 1795 while her father was away in Georgia. Meredith Childers, brother-in-law to the bride, was surety. The Miner family later removed to Hancock County, Tennessee, along with the Goins family.

Going Individuals Gained Wealth And Prestige in the Deep South

By Anna J. Going Friedman
344 Planters Way, Somerset, Kentucky, 42503, 606/677-9607

Moses Going and Agnes Going, heads of a Melun-geon/Mulatto family of Louisa County, Virginia and Wilkes County, Georgia and several of their kinsmen distinguished themselves in the deep South. Despite the color barrier and ingrained prejudice, the Going individuals served in the French & Indian War and the Revolutionary War with distinction.

Moses Going became a merchant, operating a grist mill in both Virginia and Georgia. He was regarded as wagon manufacturer in Georgia and trained his sons as wagon builders. Agnes Going was identified by her sons as “Indian” which gave the family an additional handicap to overcome in Colonial America.

A brother of Moses Going, Dr. Samuel Going became a suc-cessful physician in Wilkes County and in Claiborne County, Mississippi. Dr. Going married a white woman and became a slave owner and the head of a household of 10.

The Georgia State Legislature recognized three of the sons of Moses Going as outstanding and conveyed upon them rights rarely granted to Melungeon/Mulatto individuals. Special joint legislation was enacted in the Georgia Senate and House of Representatives in 1796 to grant John Going and Reuben Going special privileges and civil rights. Three years later, a third son, Dr. Thomas Going was similarly honored.

It is interesting to follow their achievements:

In 1796 the Georgia State Legislature established that two brothers, “Reuben Going and John Going, men of color of Greene County [Newsletter, February 1994]. . . are hereby authorized and enabled to take, hold and enjoy property, both real and personal,” according to “Ambiguous Lives” by Adele Logan Alexander. Their younger brother, Thomas Go-ing also gained his limited rights through a private legislative act, according to “Digest of the Laws of the State of Geor-gia, 1735-1800.”

The Georgia State Legislature provided:

“Emancipation: And being it further enacted that Reuben Going and John Going, of Greene County, be and they are hereby authorized and enabled to take, hold and enjoy property both real and personal.

Provided nevertheless, that nothing herein contained shall extend or be construed to extend, to enable the said free mulattoes and negro slaves when liberated as aforesaid to serve as justices in any case whatsoever nor to render them or either of them a witness in any cause or case where the personal right or property of any white person or persons is or are concerned, nor to
entitle them or any of them to have or hold, directly or indirectly any office of trust or profit, civil or military within this state.

Thomas Stevens, Speaker of the House of Representatives
Benjamin Taliaferro, President of the Senate
Concurred February 13, 1796, Jared Irwin, Governor”

Thomas Going began a medical practice about that time. Three years later, on February 18, 1799, Thomas Going also gained his limited rights through a private legislative act, ac-cording to “Digest of the Laws of the State of Georgia, 1735-1800.”

“Emancipation: Be it therefore enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of Georgia in General Assembly met, and by the authority of the same, That from and after the passing of this act, that the aforesaid Thomas Going, of the County of Wilkes, be and is hereby vested with and entitled to all the rights and privileges and immunities belonging to a free citizen of this state; Provided nevertheless, nothing herein contained shall extend or be construed to extend to entitle the said Thomas Going, to serve in the capacity of a juror in any cause whatever nor to render him a competent witness in any cause or case where the personal rights or property of any white person are or is concerned; nor to entitle the said Thomas Going to vote at elections, nor to have or hold directly or indirectly any office of trust or emolument, civil or military, within this state.

David Meriwether, Speaker of the House of Representative
Robert Walton, President of the Senate
Attested to February 18, 1799 James Jackson Governor”

Thomas Going “received payment for Moses Going” of $36 from Joseph Boren June 9, 1802 in the settlement of a suit, ac-cording to Wilkes County court records.

During the decade, Dr. Thomas Going removed to Claiborne County, Mississippi Territory, probably settling in the town of Gallatin which is no longer found on modern maps. He was enumerated there in the 1810 census in the “Names of the Heads of Families in the Counties of Claiborne and Warren, Mississippi, Territory.” The household was composed of “1 Free Person of Color and 4 Slaves.”

By 1816, Dr. Thomas Going had influenced his uncle Dr. Samuel Going to join him as a partner in his medical practice in Claiborne County. They appeared in consecutive entries in the Mississippi State Census of that year. Thomas Going was the head of a household composed of “1 Free Person of Color and 3 Slaves. Samuel Going was the head of a household composed of “10 Free Persons of Color.”

One February 9, 1820 Thomas Going and C. Warring, his bondsman, posted a bond of $200 for a marriage license. On the following day, Thomas Going obtained a license to marry Sally Allen, a white woman:

“State of Mississippi }
Claiborne County }

To any judge, justice of the peace or minister of the gospel duly qualified to celebrate the rites of matrimony, Greeting.
You are hereby authorized and licensed to join in the Holy State of Matrimony Thomas Going and Sally Allen, both of said county, you making due return hereof to the Register of the Court of Claiborne County in the time prescribed by law with Certificate of said marriage.

Given under my hand and office this Tenth day of February, One Thousand Eight Hundred and Twenty.

P. A. Vandover, Clerk, by George Winchester”

Apparently Sally Allen was a widow with two daughters. The family appeared in the 1820 census of Claiborne County, page 7:

“Going, Thomas free colored
white female 26-45
white female 16-26
white female 10-16
7 slaves”

Three members of the household were engaged in agriculture.

Nearby on page 9A of the 1820 census appeared:

“Going, Samuel free colored
white female 26-45
9 other free colored
2 slaves”

Five members of the household were engaged in agriculture.

An obituary notice appeared in the Saturday, August 22, 1840 edition of “The Southern Star” of Gallatin, Mississippi: “Died on Saturday last, after a short illness, Mr. Thomas[?] Going for a long time a citizen of this county. Aged 65 years.” The deceased died on August 15, 1840, accordingly. If the subject were Dr. Thomas Going, then he may have succumbed to yellow fever which frequently reached epidemic proportions during hot weather periods in towns along the Mississippi River. Cities as far north as St. Louis were affected by this scourge.

Since he died without heirs it is believed that his wife and her children also died before the death of Dr. Thomas Going. Children born to Dr. Thomas Going and Sally Allen Going are unknown.

Since Dr. Thomas Going died without progeny, his siblings became his heirs, but because of the color of their skin and other dangers, they hesitated to make the trip to Claiborne County, Mississippi to claim their inheritance. Finally, after seven years, a younger brother, John H. Going of Crittenden County, Kentucky got up his nerve and decided to make the trip.

John H. Going, son of Moses Going and Agnes Going, was born about 1787, probably in Louisa County, Virginia. How-ever, he, at the age of 63 stated to the censustaker in 1850 that he was born in Georgia. Attempting to find a better life for his family, he joined many of his siblings in a move to Kentucky about 1805.

John Going, “mulatto” appeared as a taxpayer in Livingston County, Kentucky in 1830. He was recorded in the 1840 cen-sus as “free colored” as the head of a household:

“Going, John H. Free Colored Male 55-100
Free Colored Female 36-55
Free Colored Female 20-30
Free Colored Male 10-20
Free Colored Female 10-20”

On May 26, 1847 John H. Going applied to the Crittenden Circuit Court for manumission papers in order that he might travel to Claiborne County, Mississippi to claim his portion of the estate of his brother, Thomas Going “who has been dead for some years and died without children.” John H. Going stated that he understood that he was “one of his heirs.”

In his petition, John Going stated that because of his dark skin he might be mistaken for a runaway slave. He added that he was a free man of color and had been from his birth. He declared that he had lived, “where he now lives” in Crittenden County for nearly 35 years and is well and favorably known by the residents. He also stated that his father had always been a free man of color and that his mother Agnes was “an Indian by blood.”

John H. Going presented an affidavit from Thomas S. Phillips who declared that he had known John Going for 30 years and that he is well known in the community as a free man of color and was of African and Indian blood. He further declared that the brother of John Going, Thomas Going and their uncle, Samuel Going were well-known physicians in partnership in Claiborne County, Mississippi and that Thomas Going has died, leaving an inheritance to John H. Going, thus making it necessary for him to travel to Mississippi.

A second affiant, Ira Nunn also presented a declaration to the court. Nunn was a well-known, prominent and successful man in Crittenden County, according to “Nunns of the South.” He stated that both he and the applicant were raised in Greene County, Georgia.

The Crittenden County Court approved the application May 29, 1847 and provided a document to John H. Going stating that he was a free man of color and had been since birth and was therefore entitled to all rights thereof. It is believed that with the thorough preparation John H. Going made the trip to Mississippi successfully.

The family of John H. Going was enumerated in 1850 as:

“Goens, John H. 63, wagonmaker, born in Georgia
Sarah M. 24, born in Kentucky
P. S. 5, born in Kentucky
Tennessee 5, born in Kentucky
William 3, born in Kentucky
Felix A. 3, born in Kentucky
Aaron 11/12, born in Kentucky”

John H. Going, “age 73, wagonmaker, born in Georgia,” reap-peared for the last time in the 1860 census as the head of a household. He did not own any land and appeared in the Belles Mine area of Crittenden and Union County, Kentucky.

As I turn up new information on my ancestors, I become more aware that there is the likelihood of much more documentation on them that remains undiscovered. I foresee ahead of me the need to research more of the early records of Georgia and Mississippi. As time permits, I will undertake the needed study and will have additional articles for the Newsletters on my findings.–AJF.
