His granddaughter, Susan Goynes Dickerson, stated in a newspaper interview in 1905 that her grandfather and his four brothers had served in the Revolution. This suggests that a mix of Going brothers and cousins moved from Orange County, North Carolina to Fairfield County, South Carolina by 1776.

That he lived in Camden District, state of South Carolina, at which place some time in June, 1776 when he was drafted to go to Charleston in order to intercept the British Fleet that was expected to land there under Col. John Wynn in Capt. John Smith’s Company of militia, Lt. William Daugherty. And rendezvoused at Winnsborough in said state at the time last above mentioned and marched to Charleston and was stationed there together with said company to guard the town and after being there about a month he was marched back and dismissed about the last of July, 1776 having served about six weeks but received no written discharge–and that afterward on the last of January–as near as he can recollect– he was again drafted under the same officers as above in Camden District, South Carolina where he then resided and rendezvoused at Winnsborough.

At the same time and was moved immediately to Charleston where he was stationed some time when said company joined General Ash from North Carolina and was then marched to Pluresburgh (?) near Savannah at which place he was stationed about eight days. When he was again dismissed or discharged and returned home about the last of February, 1779–having served about one month during which service he was in no engagement nor did he receive any written discharge–and that after remaining at home about four days he again entered the service of the U, S. as a drafted soldier under Col. John Wynn in Captain Francis Gedwells Company of Militia Lieutenant William Daugherty and rendezvoused at Winnsborough about the first of March 1779 near which place this declarent then resided and from where he was marched to Savannah then near Augusta at which place he volunteered to go to Georgia to fight the Indians and put himself under Captain John Nixon and Col. Hamarm (?) and was marched to Nightsborough (?) and from there to Falsom Fort on Abuchy (?) river and from which place the Indians retreated and were pursued by said company and overtaken and a skirmish ensued in which seventeen Indians and two white men were killed and Major Ross was killed in the part of the re______ (?) .

“Declaration in order to obtain the benefit of an Act of Congress passed June 7, 1832. State of Tennessee, Bedford County John Bearden, Senior, a resident of this county and aged eighty-nine [89] years, two [2] months, four [4] days. Entered service of United States under following officers and served as here stated.  Born in Spottsylvania County, Virginia, March 11, 1744, agreeable to his family record, but has no record of it at this time.  He says he entered the service of the United States as a private and volunteered in a company of rangers, or spies, commanded by Capt. Joseph Wofford and Lt. D. Graham, Spartanburg District, South Carolina some time in the month of April, 1777, the precise day he cannot recollect.  He was marched to a fort on the head of Enoree River to Prince’s Fort, and there was stationed, but was frequently out on a scouting or spying expeditions against the Cherokee Indians and a Tory family named Bates.  [The town of Batesville, South Carolina is located 10 miles east of Greenville on the Enoree River.]  Four in number: William, Harry, Isaac and their father–who were skulking about with the Indians, were frequently engaged with the Indians in murders of frontier settlers; and there remained in service until some time in January, 1778, when he was dismissed agreeable to orders.  Thinks in February, 1778 he volunteered again and joined a company of spies or rangers under command of Captain John Gowen, and marched to a fort on the south side of the Pacolet River [probably near present-day Landrum, South Carolina] and was frequently raiding on the frontier settlement on the Tyger River.
He states that on one of the scouting expeditions he was on, Captain Gowen arrested and took prisoner two men, one by the name of Fanning, the other by name of Smith; that they brought them back into a white settlement [probably Gowensville] and delivered them up to a magistrate, as they were both Tories, and both had stolen horses, each taken from a Mr. James Ford and a Mr. John Patten.  Deponent says he was marched back to the last-mentioned fort [near Landrum] on the south fork of the Pacolet River, where he remained in service until some time in the month of August, 1778, and was again dismissed, it being thought and frequently said by Captain Gowen that the Indians had become quiet and that there was no further use for the troops at that time.  He states that he served in the last-mentioned town [Landrum] not less than six months.
Deponent further says that he removed shortly after that into Union District, S.C, and there entered the service of the United States again, about one week before the siege of Ninety-Six.  That he was marched off that place a drafted soldier and was in the engagement at that place.
He says he was then transferred from Captain Blassingame’s company and marched through the country in a different direction in search of a band of Tories under the command of Jesse Gray.  That he continued in service under the last-mentioned captain a tour of duty of not less than four months, and says he was finally dismissed from service, after serving in all, a tour of actual service of not less than nine months, for which he claims a pension.
Applicant says he remained a citizen of South Carolina until 1824 when he removed to Bedford County, Tennessee, where he now lives.  He further says that he was not acquainted with any regular officers with the troops when he served or any regiment of regulars whatever.   s/s John Bearden”. http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~gowenrf/Gowenms007.htm

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.

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.

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

(See Wikipedia article on Francis Marion: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_Marion ). Drury Going serves in the regiment commanded by Col. John Winn of Winnsboro, South Carolina, according to the research of Carroll Heard Goyne, Jr. The “Swamp Fox” repeatedly led his rapid-deployment brigade in daring raids against the superior British forces, exacted heavy losses upon them and then escaped into the swamps where the English were unable to follow. They had remarkable successes in battles at Georgetown, Ft. Watson, Ft. Motte and Eutaw Springs, lifting the morale of the Americans who were generally being defeated everywhere else. Their spectacular success in the Battle of Parker’s Ferry in 1782 resulted in a Congressional medal for Marion’s men. South Carolina.

1792 Sept 4: John Gowin of Fairfield, planter, conveys 96 acres to William Watts. Land in Fairfield, bounded by lands of John Barber, Joseph Cameron, Hugh Smith. Wits: Simeon Tidwell, William Lewis, Thomas Hughs. Signed: John Gowin. Proved up by Simeon Tidwell on Dec 20, 1793. Rec Jan 4, 1793. pgs 51 to 53. Fairfield Co, South Carolina.

1792 Sept 17 – John Goyen (also spelled Goyin and Goyne within the document) conveys 50 acres of land in Kershaw County, South Carolina to Aaron Ferguson. This 50 acres of land is noted as “whereon Drury Goyne know lives“. It was conveyed by Jesse Knighten to John Goyne on April 17, 1792. This land is bounded by lands previously laid out to Lewis Collins and Richard Garners. The deed is signed by John Goyen. Witnessed by: Lewis Collins and Drury (his X mark) Goyen. Proved in court on August 16, 1796 by Lewis Collins. In Kershaw County, South Carolina.
(Note: The above Drury Goyen may be Drury Goyen b. 1749, or may be Drury Goyne b. abt 1766 (William Goyne’s b. ab 1733’s son). The transaction takes place near the border of Kershaw County and Fairfield County, South Carolina – near the Wateree Creek area it appears (see map below). This may indicate a relationship between Drury Goyen b. 1749 and John Goyen in this transaction. Interestingly, there was an Elizabeth Gowen widow of John Gowen dec’d involved in a transaction in Lancaster Co, SC in 1784 (see below). John Gowen noted as “decd” in 1784 needs to be identified. He may be a parent of John Goyen noted in the above transactions. Drury Goyen b. 1749 is noted as living in Chester County, SC in a January 1792 transaction above. It is possible he had more than one residence, but it is not clear that is the case here). Kershaw County SC, Direct & cross indexes to deeds and mortgages, 1791-1884.

1801 Adam McCool – will transcript. SC
http://www.archivesindex.sc.gov/onlinearchives/Thumbnails.aspx?recordId=298958

1801 John Gowen and two other men contracted to build a new courthouse and jail for Spartanburg County, began to run into cost overruns before its completion and petitioned the South Carolina General Assembly and the South Carolina Senate for additional money.  Their petitions read:
“General Assembly Petitions, 1801, No. 49.
“To the Honorable the Senate and House of Representatives of the State of South Carolina:
“The humble petition of the undertakers of the public Building for Spartanburgh District Sheweth that whereas they have engaged to compleat the Court House and Jail for the above District at an underrate much less than you in your liberality were pleased to appropriate for that purpose in each District.  From inexperience of the expense of so great an undertaking, the scarcity of provisions sustained by the late dearth of corn, in our District, and the shortness of time which they have been allowed, being only eighteen months, that unless you in compassion to their weakness lend them some assistance they must in their private property be materially injured.  They also beg leave to lay before your honor that whereas they contracted to compleat the Court House of Wood they for the publick benefit have raised the same of well-burned Brick relying on your justice to make them compensa­tion.  The brick work of said Court House & Jail are now nearly compleated and that the whole of the moneys which they have received are already expended.  The Jail is thirty feet long, twenty-four feet wide and Three Storey in height:  The Court House is Forty feet long, Twenty-six feet wide and two storey in height, the whole to be compleatly finished–equal to any in this State.  And this we are bound to do for the sume of Four Thousand four hundred Dollars.  This small sum we need not state to you is inadequate to the expense of so great an undertaking by at least Sixteen hundred Dollars which will be a triffle more than what was a first appropriated for that purpose.  This request being so Just and mourall they sincerely hope you will not in humanity to their loss refuse it and your petition­ers in duty bound will ever pray.
John Gowen
Jno. Murrell
Alex’r. McKee”
“To the Honorable vice president of the Senate and the members of the same the Humble Petition of John Gowen, John Murrell and Alexander McKee Sheweth that your Petitioners became undertakers for the build­ings of the Gaol and the Court House of Spartanburgh District for the sum of Four Thousand Four Hundred dollars that by our contract we were to have built the Court House of Wood, but believing it be much sounder built the same of brick, resting on the generosity of the Legislature to indemnify us for the Extra expenses.  That in consequence of building this Court House of brick your Petitioners have sunk the sum of one thousand dollars.  Therefore your Petitioners most humbly pray that your Honorable House will pass a resolution for the payment of this sum of aforesaid and your petitioners in duty bound will ever pray.            John Gowen

1807 Feb 25:Letters of Administration granted to John Hall and Daniel Gowin in Fairfield County, South Carolina. Daniel Gowin is the brother of Henry Gowin, and John Hall’s sister (Nancy Hall) married Henry Gowin. As was noted in the 1800 US Census in Fairfield Co, SC, it appears Nancy Hall Gowin must have died prior to 1800 as she is not noted on the Census – she is not noted in this will either – so she must have predeceased Henry Going. Benjamin Harrison helps prove up Henry Gowins will by swearing he saw him sign, and that he also saw Alexander Wilie (Wylie) sign as a witness, as well as himself sign as a witness to the will in 1807. Fairfield County, South Carolina.

Spartanburg Co, SC
(Note: In 1809 – John Gowen names “Atlantic and Dorindas, daughters or Polly Sanders” as beneficiaries – leaving them a “deed of gift”. John Gowen 3 (three) years earlier had made a “deed of gift” to Thany Sanders as the “daughter of a woman by the name of Polly Sanders at her birth, but who now bears the name of Polly Gentry”. )
(- Is Polly possibly a sister? – married at first to a Sanders, then remarried later to a Gentry)
(HERE: James Sanders Sr – is a purchaser at Alexander Going’s estate in 1775, Orange Co, NC. – maybe the husb?)
On August 20, 1809 John Gowen being in ill health, wrote his will. It was recorded in Spartanburg County Will Book A, pages 2-3 November 10, 1809. Apparently he died shortly after writing his will and was probably buried in Spartanburg District.  The will reads:
“In the name of God, Amen.  I, John Gowen, being afflicted by the hand of Almighty God and knowing it is once ordained for all men to die, do ordain, constitute and appoint this my last Will and Testament, hereby re­voking all other Wills by me made, excepting such property, this is, viz: as I have already bestowed to my children.
I pray God who gave it to take my soul, my body to return from whence it came and be buried in a Christian manner, by direction of my executors to be hereinafter named
First: I bequeath unto my son, Winn B. Gowen, a tract of land lying and being in Greenville District on both sides of middle Tygar River, the line to begin at the mouth of a Branch emptying into the said river on the north side below the mill–thence a direct line to the up­per end of the big cove and to the line of land–then my line to the opposite, to the beginning.  Also two negroes called Zed and Spence, together with a stock of cattle and hogs now on the premises before mentioned, one bed and furniture; also my part of a bay gelding that he rides.
Second: I bequeath unto my daughter, Lettie, a plantation by Ann Easley’s place, three negroe girls known by the names of Vina, Ede and Harriot; one bed and furniture and two cows and calves.
Third: I bequeath unto my Daughter, Minerva, a tract of land lying on the south side of Saluda where my son, James Gowen, attended; Two Ne­groes, names Cresa and Asa, one bed and furni­ture, One Hundred Dollars to purchase a horse­beast, two cows and calves and her mother’s sattle [saddle].
Fourth: I bequeath unto my daughter, Elizabeth Wood­son, a tract of land on Tyger River called Sulsias place.
Fifth: I bequeath unto my son, James Gowen, 800 acres to begin at the ford of the river on the South Pacolet, now used between here and where he lives, and thence a North course so to include the school house spring where Davis taught, and then ’round to a line to be made for John Roddy; thence, to the beginning so as to include the Jamison fields.
Sixth: I give and bequeath to my Grandson, John Gowen, son of William, deceased, all the land between what I have given Winn and Letty that I own, also one Girl named Hannah; to my granddaughter, Mahulda, a negro boy called Buck; unto Matilda, a negroe boy called Sip; a negroe boy named Ben unto Letty, my granddaughter.
If any of these legatees died without lawful issue, the property to be returned and equally divided be­tween my children the living.  I hereby appoint John and Winn Gowen, my sons, and James Blassingame and Street Thurston, my sons-in-law to be the executors of this, my last will and testament: to sell on a credit of twelve months all the real and personal property that I have not before bequeathed, except two hundred acres of land to be laid off, agreeable to deed of gift made to Atlantic and Dorindas, Daughters of Polly Sanders.  My debts to be paid and, if any balance left, to be equally divided between all of my children living, borne of my wife, Lettie, deceased.  In witness whereof I have set my hand this 20th day of August, Anno Domini, 1809.                                John Gowen, In the presence of: Theron Earle, C. W. McVay, Willus G. Brown”

1833 Jan: EDWARD GOING, GRANVILLE COUNTY, PRIVATE, 5TH REGIMENT, COL. EATON
$40.00 ANNUAL ALLOWANCE, $120.00 AMOUNT RECEIVED, MAY 29, 1833 PENSION STARTED. AGE 92. State of North Carolina County of Granville. First Munday of Agt. 1832. Personly appeared in open court before the worshipful the justice of the court of Pleas and quarter sessions for the county of aforesaid now sitting Edward Going a resident of sd. County aged between 90 and 100 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 act of Congress passed June 7th 1832 – that he entered the army of the United States in the war of the Revolution under the following circumstances (to wit).
He enlisted under Robert Temples as Captain at Warren Court house in the state of North Carolina at what time he does not recollect but that he did enlist in the nine months service, was marched from Warren Court house to Halifax, where he joined the regular troops in the 5th Regiment under Colonel Pink Eaton [Pinketham Eaton] & Mumford, he was stationed at Halifax about two months, he was marched from there to Kingston or Elizabeth town on Neuse River where he was stationed from six to eight weeks, from there he marched to Leesburg on Savanna River [Savannah River] where he was stationed from one to two months, then marched from there up the river to a place called the black swamp, where he was taken sick and sent from there to the Hospital in Charleston where he lay seven or eight weeks. Then he was removed over the Ashby River to Sullivan’s Island where he remained about three weeks when he was furtowed [furloughed] and directed to come home, his time of service being nearly out. After being at home a few days he went to the City of Warren to General or Colo. Guthrie Sumner [sic, Jethro Sumner] who gave him his discharge for the sd. tower of nine months. He kept his discharge several years and sold it to a W. Jno. Hall for six dollars that he does not know of any person by whom he can prove this service.
After he had been at been at home about two years he enlisted again in the three months service under Capt. Benjamin Eaves at Lewisburg in the state of North Carolina, where he imediately marched up the country, through a part of Virginia and again into North Carolina to the county of Guilford. There they joined the army commanded by General Green [Nathanael Greene] where he remained but a few days before the Guilford fight took place. He was in that fight [Battle of Guilford County Court House, March 15, 1781] and recollects that a Colo. Williams [Otho Holland Williams] on the day of the fight commanded that part of the army that he was in after the fight our company was confused and scattered. We were collected again near Rocky River, while the British army made a short stay at Ramsey’s Mill. We understood they stayed but a short time moved on towards Halifax North Carolina. We made but a short stay at Rocky River. We were marched from there to Camden town in South Carolina where we stayed but a few days. We were then marched over the Catawba River where we stayed but a few days before our term of service expired and we received our discharges but by what officer they were granted I do not now recollect. I took care of my discharge for several years & was told that it was no account and what has become of it now I know not. I know of no person now living by whom I can prove this three months service. My messmates while in the service or a part of them whose names I recollect were Ozzy Ball, Drew Jones & William Smith. I have heard of the death of Ball & Jones. I cannot tell what has become of Smith. I have continued since I left the army to live in the counties of Franklin and Granville in North Carolina. I have no documentary evidence by which I can prove any part of this service. I hereby relinquish every claim whatever to a pension or annuity except the present and declare that my name is not on the pension role of the agency of any state.
Signed and sworn to in open court.

SOUTH CAROLINA

Following English custom, before 1837, most colonial South Carolina marriages took place in the parish church, following the publication of banns [the announcement in church on three successive Sundays], or by license, according to Sherry Irvine, BA, CGRS, FSA. There were two proper ways to get married, by banns or by license. If the couple obtained a marriage li-cense from one of the ecclesiastical offices, banns were not re-quired.

In South Carolina hardly any Colonial licenses survive because the license was given to the groom to present to the officiating minister. The license contained statements made on oath that both parties to the union were over the age of 21 [or they supplied the proper permission] and that there was no known impediment to the marriage. The bond, originally required, was for a sum of money to be forfeited if any part of the allegations were false.

Gen. Samuel McGowan was commander of the Gowan’s Brigade during the Civil War. His command was the subject of a book written by James Fitz James Caldwell, according to Damon Van Vliet, a book dealer of Manchester, New Hampshire:

“The History of a Brigade of South Carolinians, Known First as “Greggs” and Subsequently as “Mc-Gowan’s Brigade.” Dayton, Ohio: Press of Morning-side Bookshop, 1974 was originally published in 1866 in 247 pages. Caldwell, who served as an officer in the 1st South Carolina Infantry, composed this very early, but still useful history that chronicles the activities of his brigade.

Beginning in 1862, the brigade was comprised of the same five regiments and saw action throughout the complete record of the Army of Northern Virginia. The five regiments commanded by Maxcy Gregg and then by Samuel McGowan were the 1st, 12th, 13th and 14th South Carolina Infantry and Orr’s Rifles. It is altoge-ther the best history of a brigade in Lee’s Army, and the best unit history from the Palmetto State. The author describes all of the brigade’s many engagements and adds enough personal material to make the account both personal and human in scope.

Chapters include the following: the Five Regiments Constituting Gregg’s Brigade; The Battles Around Richmond, June and July, 1862; From the Battles Around Richmond to the Second Battle of Manassas, July and August, 1862; Second Battle of Manassas, the Battle of Ox Hill, and the Capture of Harper‘s Ferry. August 29-September 15, 1862; Battles of Sharpsburg and Shepherdstown; The Repose in the Valley, the March to Fredericksburg, and the Battle of Fredericks-burg; The Brigade in Winter-Quarters, Battle of Chan-cel-lorsville; From the Battle of Chancellorsville to the Battle of Gettysburg; The Battle of Gettysburg – the Retire to Virginia; From the Return to Virginia to the Affair at Mine Run; From November 26, 1863, to the Opening of the 1864 Campaign; The Battle of the Wil-derness and Spottsylvania Court House; From May 12 to July 1, 1864. Battles of Jericho Ford, Riddle’s Shop, and on the Weldon Railroad, Return to North side of the James, Battles of Deep Bottom and Fussel’s Mills, July 1 to August 16; Return to Petersburg, Battles of Ream’s Station and Jones Farm, The Expedition to Jar-rett’s Station; The Condition of M’Gowan’s Brigade During the Winter of 1864-65; Active Operations until April 1, 1865; The Battle of Sutherland’s Station and the Retreat of the Army; The Surrender of the Army of Northern Virginia, Includes a list of Casualties Among Officers at Second Manassas and at Fredericksburg.”

William Moreau Goins was born about 1961. He was graduated in 1979 from Gonzaga College High School in Washington, D.C. He was mentioned in “Good News Gonzaga,” publication of the high school alumni:

“Bill Goins ’79 performs under his middle name, Mo-reau. As Moreau, the multi-talented Goins sings, dances and acts. Included among his acts are tradi-tional dances of Native Americans. He was chosen to represent the National Native Network of Talent to carry on a legacy started by Iron Eyes Cody, the leg-endary tearful Indian of the ‘Keep America Beautiful’ campaign. Also Moreau has performed with the Wash-ington Metropolitan Opera and authored, directed and starred in a production at Washington’s Source The-atre.”

Elsie Taylor Goins was interviewed in February 1999 by a Charleston newspaper reporter:

“Family traces roots to slavery”

By Herb Frazier
Post and Courier staff
Charleston, South Carolina

Columbia–The twisted branches of Elsie Taylor Goins’ family tree lead a black American family to its roots – an English slave trader buried in West Africa.

From there, the branches spread to two mulatto women who sailed from Africa into Charleston in 1764 as “free people of color.” They later owned slaves and rice plantations in Berkeley County.

Goins’ lineage, spanning three centuries, is meticulously drawn on a large tan canvas she created after seeing her family’s “freedom papers,” declaring that her ancestors from Africa were never held as slaves.

It is the perception that most black Americans are the descendants of enslaved Africans, said Goins, a retired budget analyst with the Department of the Navy in Washington, D.C.

Other black families probably could tell of ancestors who arrived as free people, if memories and records had not been lost in time, she said.

“My family is unique because we had the freedom papers that gave us information about four generations,” she said, sitting in the den of her home among the records she has gathered in researching her family’s history.

What sets Goins’ family history apart from other descendants of free people of color is that her ancestors came to Colonial America already free, and she has an unusual document to show it.

Dr. S. Max Edelson, an assistant professor of history at the College of Charleston, said Goins’ story is unique.

“Similar stories could be waiting for historians to uncover,” he said.

“It is an invitation for further research.”

Not all free black people had papers attesting to their freedom, said Dr. Bernard Powers, a professor of history at the college. Powers said “freedom papers” is a generic term for court documents that stated a person purchased his freedom or was given it. Real estate transactions also served as freedom papers because slaves couldn’t own property, he said.

Freedom papers were obtained depending on a person’s circumstances, he explained. Some black people felt they needed them as protection against kidnappers who’d sell them into slavery. The freedom papers in Goins’ family were issued to her great-grandfather Andrew Henry Dibble, a Camden tailor. Goins said he probably got them to reaffirm his freedom even though the importation of African slaves to the United States had been outlawed long before.

The governor and secretary of state signed Dibble’s “certificate of freedom” on Aug. 24, 1860.

Dibble’s freedom papers are unique because high-ranking state officials signed them, and it indicates he was an influential person who had a white person to vouch for him, said Dr. Mark Smith, a U.S. history professor at the University of South Carolina.

The year Dibble got his freedom papers was a tense time in South Carolina. The anti-slavery movement was rising. Abraham Lincoln was elected president in November. The next month, South Carolina seceded from the Union. On April 12, 1861, shots were fired on Fort Sumter, starting the Civil War.

Smith speculates that Dibble obtained his “certificate of freedom” because he was afraid of an anti-slavery backlash that could have affected him even though he had never been a slave.

Dibble was born Jan. 1, 1825, in Charleston. The freedom papers do more than just list four generations of his ancestors. It links Goins’ family with Africa in a way far different than most other black families.

Dibble’s freedom papers include a December 1807 affidavit that Catherine Cleveland, his great-grandmother, and Elizabeth Cleveland Hardcastle, her aunt, were free people of color. Hardcastle was the daughter of William Cleveland, a white slave trader from Devonshire, England.

In the 1730s, William Cleveland arrived on the Banana Islands just off the coast of Sierra Leone in West Africa.

He was shipwrecked, and he took refuge on the island.

King Skinner Caulker, ruler of the Sherbro people, took him in. Caulker was an African who traded in ivory, gum, redwood and slaves. Cleveland eventually got into slave trading, too.

For a white man to be an independent slave trader, he was expected to marry into an African family, said Joe Opala, a scholar-in-residence at the Penn Center on St. Helena Island.

“When you came from Europe, you were expected to attach yourself to a local king and from him you took protection,” said Opala, who lived in Freetown, Sierra Leone, for 20 years. “He gave you land and a place to do business. In return, you had to marry a girl from his family. That tied you into the system.”

Cleveland married Kate Caulker, King Caulker’s only child, Goins said. They had two children, John and Elizabeth. Cleveland died Dec. 6, 1758. He is buried on Bunce Island, Sierra Leone, the site of a former British slave-trading post.

After his death, Elizabeth Cleveland and her niece Catherine came to the South Carolina Colony. Elizabeth Cleveland later owned Wampee, Brick House, Raccoon Hill, Tucker and Pierce’s Old Field plantations in Berkeley County, Goins said. When she died in 1808, she owned about 30 slaves on the Tucker Plantation. She willed Raccoon Hill to Catherine Cleveland.

The fair-skinned Elizabeth Cleveland was identified as a white female in the 1790 and 1800 census. She was married to a white doctor, William Hardcastle.

Being a descendant of a black woman who owned black slaves is not a badge of shame, Goins said.

“I don’t feel like I have to run and hide,” she said. “It is un-fortunate they were in the slave business, but I can’t change history. They were doing what society dictated. I assume if they felt it was undesirable, they would not have done it.”

Goins and her sister, Catherine Taylor McConnell, began researching their family’s history 30 years ago. McConnell died in 1996. This year, Goins hopes to publish a book about her family.

“Most people don’t realize that some [Africans] arrived as free people. It is a part of history that should be written because so much of history has been lost.”

Perhaps the earliest recorded individual of interest to Gowen chroniclers in the state of South Carolina is Charles Gowing who died in Charleston in 1704. “George Chicken & James Ingerson executed a bond for Chicken’s proper administration of the estate of Charles Gowing, late of Charles Town. Warrant of appraisement was directed to Wm. Gibbon, Evan McFashion & John Goodwin,” according to “Abstracts from the Records of the Court of Ordinary of the Province of South Carolina, 1700-1712” by A. S. Salley, Jr.

William Going signed a petition “to the Crown against the Proprietors” February 24, 1717, according to “South Caro-lina Historical Magazine.” The petition was signed by all of the members of the South Carolina House of Commons and many other citizens. A total of 568 signatures–one half of the white male population of colony of South Carolina–appeared on the document.

Mrs. Giles Gowan was the mother of John Johnston who men-tioned her in his will. John Johnston died in South Carolina April 21, 1739. His will also mentioned John Gowan, mer-chant of London, England. Abstract of this will is printed in “Abstracts of Wills of the State of South Carolina 1670-1740,” page 265, by Caroline T. Moore. The will was re-corded in Charleston Will Book 1736-1740, page 399.

Mrs. Giles Gowan, apparently was married at least three times. She wrote her will as Sarah Johnston, widow, in “Charles Town, South Carolina.” She died November 29, 1768, according to Charleston County Will Book TT, page 74. The will names her sons, John McCall, Robert Collins and Robert Johnston and grandsons, John McCall, James McCall and Hext McCall, minor. John McCall, son, was named ex­ecutor of the estate.

John McCall had been a witness to the will of Ann Air Sep-tember 28, 1763, according to Charleston County Will Book QQ, page 316.

James McCall had been a witness the will of Lloyd Caleb in Charleston County in 1766, according to Charleston County Will Book RR, page 98. He had also witnessed the will of Thomas Vardell in 1769, according to Charleston County Will Book SS, page 66.

Hext McCall was a witness to a deed in 1776 in Charleston County, according to Charleston Will Book TT, page 570. He was witness to a deed in 1782, according to Charleston Coun-ty Book WW, page 224. He was named a guardian in 1780, according to Charleston County Will Book WW, page 255.

Peter I. Gowan may have been the individual who was mentioned in the will of Prue Benson of Greenville County, South Carolina written October 19, 1819. Peter I. Gowan owned half interest in a “mill built between P. I. Gowan and myself,” according to the will which was recorded in Greenville County October 1, 1821. The abstract read:

“I give and bequeath unto my son-in-law, John Gowen four negroes, also half of a mill built between P. I. Gowen and myself, to my son William B. Benson, five negroes; to daughter Jane, five negroes; plantation tract of land and all the balance of my person perperty to be sold at public sale on a credit of 12 months, and the money arising from the sale therein to be divided between John Gowen, William B. Benson and Jane Benson. I do hereby appoint John B. Gowen and William B. Benson my lawful executors.
Witnesses: Prue Benson
Thomas Benson
Evalina Benson
Henry Hall”

The estate sale of Prue Benson was held December 1, 1821. John B. Gowen, William B. Benson, John H. Eas-ley and Thomas Wynn were among the purchasers.

“Peter Gowan” “took the oath of Naturalization” in Charleston November 1, 1819, according to “South Carolina Historical Magazine.” This indicates that he was foreign born.

“Peter Gowan” was married. wife’s name Sarah, date not giv-en, according to the “Charleston Observer.” The marriage date is estimated to be 1823. Children born to Peter Gowan and Sarah Gowan are unknown.

Hazel Dean Overstreet, family researcher and Foundation Member of Odum, Georgia, discovered in the South Carolina Archives abstracts of Charleston bills of sale for slaves in-volving Peter I. Gowan:

“February 28, 1823. Bill of Sale from Jehu Jones to Peter Gowan a slave named Richard, a tailor by trade. Warranted sound.

“July 15, 1824. Bill of Sale from Jacob De La Molte to Peter Gowan for a mulatto slave named Mary, about 40 years old.

July 18, 1826. Bill of Sale from Eliza Garner to Peter Gowan for a mulatto slave named Sally, about 22 years old and her two children named David and Mary.

June 14, 1828. Bill of Sale from Fleming Ross & Company to Peter Gowan for a slave named Ellen. Warranted sound.

April 9, 1829. Bill of Sale from M. A. Desoussure, ex­ecutor of estate of Alexander Gordon to Peter Gowan for a slave named Melia and her daughter Kate.”

Jehu Jones, Sr, conveyor in the first bill of sale, was a free Negro slave owner and a tailor in Charleston, according to “Black Slave Owners, 1790-1860″ by Larry Koger.

Peter I. Gowan was recorded as the head of a household in the 1830 census of the City of Charleston, Charleston County, page 38:

“Gowan, Peter white male 40-50
white female 20-30
white male 5-10
white female 0-5
white female 0-5
white male 40-50

He was the owner of six slaves, according to the enumeration:

female slave 24-36
female slave 10-24
female slave 10-24
male slave 0-10
female slave 0-10
male slave 0-10”

During the decade Peter I. Gowan continued to deal in slaves:

“March 10, 1837. Bill of Sale from Peter Gowan to Robert Walder for a mulatto slave named Betsey, with deed of assignment to Samuel Weston, a free black.

November 16, 1837. Bill of Sale from Edward Harvey to Peter Gowan, as guardian, for a slave named Maria.”

Peter I. Gowan reappeared in the 1840 census of Charleston County, page 19:

“Gowan, Peter white male 40-50
white female 30-40
white female 10-15
white male 10-15
white female 10-15
white male 5-10
white female 5-10
white female 0-5
white male 30-40
white female 20-30”

[5 slaves]

Two members of the family were engaged in trades and manufacturing.

Peter I. Gowan had two other slave transactions after the census:

“March 23, 1841. Bill of Sale from Charles Clarke, executor of John Redfern, to Peter Gowan for a slave named George.

July 3, 1844. Bill of Sale from C. Parknin to Peter Gowan for a slave named Patty.”

Peter I. Gowan later moved to Orangeburg County, South Carolina where he and his wife died at the home of their daughter, Mrs. Riggs.

According to his granddaughter, Miss Sarah Louise “Sally” children born to Peter I. Gowan include:

Alexander Gowan born about 1828
[daughter] born about 1830
John Gowan born about 1834
Peter I. Gowan, Jr. born March 13, [16?] 1843

Alexander Gowan, son of Peter I. Gowan, was born about 1828, probably in Charleston.

A daughter, name unknown, was born to Peter I. Gowan about 1830. She was married about 1847, husband’s name Riggs. Later they lived in Orangeburg County.

John Gowan, son of Peter I. Gowan, was born about 1834, probably in Charleston.

Peter I. Gowan, Jr, son of Peter I. Gowan, was born March 13 [or 16?], 1843, probably in Charleston. He became a Presby-terian minister and preached in several areas across the South.
He was married about 1874, probably in Charleston to Sarah Louise “Sally” Palmer, the daughter of Benjamin M. Palmer and Sarah “Sally” Sanneau Palmer.

On April 1, 1875 Sarah Louise “Sally” Palmer Gowan of Selma, Alabama gave a deed to A. Foster Axson, M.D. of New Orleans, Louisiana to 320 acres located on Childress Creek, tributary of the Bosque River for $800, according to McLennan County, Texas Deed Book U, page 519 and Bos-que County Deed Book O, page 422. The land lay astride the McLennan-Bosque county line, “formerly in Milam’s Dis-trict.” Sarah Louise “Sally” Palmer Gowan had inherited the property from her mother.

The deed made reference to the fact that Sarah “Sally” B. San-neau Palmer was the daughter of Bazile R. Sanneau of South Carolina who was perhaps an earlier owner of the land. The land was conveyed to Benjamin W. Palmer June 4, 1847 by James Temple Doswell, according to Bosque County Deed Book K, page 643. The deed made reference to the fact that Sarah B. “Sally” Palmer Gowan was the only living child of Benjamin M. Palmer.

It appears from the deed that her mother, Sarah B. “Sally” Sanneau Palmer had remarried, husband’s name Schindler. He, too, had died, and in 1875 she was a widow living in Nacogdoches, Texas.

Other relatives by the names of Mary J. Sanneau, Hamet W. Sanneau, Kate O. Sanneau, Alfred U. Sanneau lived in Charleston. Palmer Sanneau lived in Adams County, Missis­sippi.

Recorded in Bosque County Deed Book 19, page 392 was an affidavit of heirship of Sarah Louise “Sally” Palmer Gowan in the estate of Benjamin M. Palmer made April 30, 1892 by Alfred W. Sanneau of Charleston.

Rev. Peter I. Gowan, Jr. and Sarah Louise “Sally” Palmer Gowan were enumerated in the 1880 census of Dallas County, Alabama, Enumeration District 74, page 1, precinct 36:

“Gowan, P. 37, born in South Carolina
Sarah L. 39, born in South Carolina
Sarah L. 3, born in Alabama

This enumeration would probably reveal if his father was foreign born.

They later lived in Wesson, Mississippi. Sarah Louise “Sally” Palmer Gowan died there July 22, 1896 at the age of 55 and was buried in Wesson Cemetery, located in the extreme south-ern part of Copiah County, Mississippi. Rev. Peter I. Gowan, Jr. died there December 2, 1912, at the age of 69 and was bur-ied beside his wife.

FAIRFIELD COUNTY, SOUTH CAROLINA

Fairfield County was dedicated in 1785 and created in 1789 out of Camden District when it was divided into five parts. Camden District had been dedicated in 1765 and established in 1769 as one of the seven districts of colonial South Carolina. It adjoined District Ninety-six on the east.

Lord Cornwallis wintered in Winnsboro, South Carolina, the seat of government, in the fall of 1780 until January 1781 during the American Revolution.

The 1786 census of Fairfield County included households headed by “Daniel Goin, page 19, six members; Jesse Goin, page 20, four members; John Goin, page 20; Daniel Gowen, page 22; Henry Gowens, page 19, and Alexander Gowin, page 19, nine members;” according to “Heads of Families, South Carolina, 1790.”

“Daniel Goyen” had served in the South Carolina militia during 1782 under Lt. John Hollis, according to South Carolina Audited Account 3015. It appears that he was closely associ­ated with “John Goyen” Account 3017 and “William Goyen,” Account 3018.

It appears that the Hollis family and the Gowen family were associated for many years. Both lived in the Northern Neck area of Virginia and both settled in Fairfield County, South Carolina.Fairfield County, Virginia.

Moses Hollis, son of John Hollis and Esther Hollis, was born in 1728 in Fairfax County, Virginia. He was married in Fairfax County to Rosannah Hagan about 1748.

Moses Hollis received a grant of 300 acres on Wateree Creek in Craven District in April 1768 from the governor. This land lay on the eastern border of Fairfield County when it was created in 1798.
Moses Hollis died in Fairfield County August 17, 1794.

In July 1809 Moses Hollis , Jr. received a grant of 68 acres “on the North Fork of Wateree Creek and Wateree River, adjacent to land of Richard Tidwell, Edmund Tidwell, Moses Hollis, Daniel McCullough, Jesse Gladden, Wm. Goyen, Thomas Shurley, and Mary Hill,” according to Fairfield County deed records.

Moses Hollis was enumerated in the 1790 census of Camden District, Camden County as the head of a household composed of “four white males over 16, two white males under 16 and four females.”

“In the name of God amen. This 9th day of April, One Thousand Seven Hundred and Ninety Three, I Moses Hollis of the state of South Carolina and county of Fair-field, Being very sick and week but of perfect mind and memory, thanks be to God, but calling to mind the mor-tality of my body and that is appointed for all men once to die, do make this my last will and testament.

“John Goyen” served in the South Carolina militia under Lt. James Pickett, Capt. Charles Lewis and in Gen. Henderson’s Brigade during 1782 and 1783. On May 23, 1785, he filed a claim for a horse lost in militia service in 1782. He also filed for 42 days service under the command of Lt. Pickett and 21 days service under the command of Capt. Lewis, according to Audited Account No. 3017.

An affidavit was attached to the claim:

“Then appeared in court William Gladden and William Goyen and made oath that the above mentioned horse was appraised by them. Then appeared John Goyen and made oath that the above horse was lost or taken by the enemy in the service of the state in the expedition against the enemy under the command of Gen. Henderson.

Signed: Charles Pickett, J.P.
Certified Charles Lewis, Capt.”

The household of John Goin was recorded in 1786 in Camden District, Fairfield District, page 20 as:

“Goin, John white male over 16
white female
white female
white male under 16
white female”

In a consecutive claim with John Goyen, William Goyen filed Audited Account 3018, stating that he served in the militia in 1782 under Capt. Charles Lewis. He also witnessed the claim of John Goyen, suggesting a relationship between the two.

“Clearly, the Goynes of Fairfield County, South Car­olina and those of northern Orange County, North Carolina are the same family. Very likely, Drury Going of Chester County, South Carolina is a member of this family. If we accept Susan Goynes Dickerson’s statement that five Goyne brothers served in the American Revolution, then I would suggest that their names are: Amos, Daniel, Drury, James and William. I include Amos’s name on this list even though there is no record of his serving in the Revolution. But, neither is there a record of James serving, except for his pension application.”

Prentiss Lewis Goen is regarded as a descendant of Henry Goen who wrote his will in Fairfield County in 1807. Prentiss Lewis Goen, son of Dillard Goen and Permelia Goen, was born January 13, 1825 in Greenville District, South Carolina. His family removed to Georgia, and when Prentiss Lewis Goen at­tained the age of 17, he went out on his own and removed to Monroe County, Mississippi, according to an article published in the “Cleburne Tribune” of Cleburne, Texas.

“Taking the California gold fever in 1849, at the age of 24, he struck out in the company of about 40 other ad­venturers to seek his fortune in search of gold.

During his trip horseback across the plains of Texas and New Mexico, he encountered a severe sandstorm, and for several days, experienced much suffering for water. Upon reaching water, one of the travelers quickly drank all the water he desired and was soon dead. Lewis Goen was wiser and with his head near the water, he allowed his tongue, that was swollen out of his mouth, to slowly return to normal with the occasional sip of water to relieve the extreme thirst.”

After arriving at the California gold fields, he became one of the lucky ones. After five years of digging, he had accumu­lated a “mule load” of gold nuggets. Recalling the hardships of crossing the American wilderness, he elected to return home aboard ship. He took a sailing vessel to Panama, walked across the Isthmus, and caught another ship bound for New Orleans. From there he went to Mississippi to see his mother who did not immediately recognize him, after a 13-year absence. After a short visit, he returned to Greenville County to visit friends and family before heading to Texas where he spent the rest of his life.

While prospecting for gold in the Mariposa Mountains of California, Prentiss Lewis Goen nearly lost his life in an en­counter with a grizzly bear. The account of the terrifying battle that Prentiss Lewis Goen fought with the grizzly first appeared in the “Cleburne [TX] Tribune” in 1881, and excerpts are reprinted now, 115 years later, through the courtesy of a kinsman and Foundation Member Paul Lynn Goen of Al­buquerque, New Mexico:

[Editor’s note: Mrs. W. B. Tyler of San Angelo recently furnished the Tribune with the following account of her grandfather’s battle with a grizzly bear which she copied from a reprinted story in his family bible. Lewis Goen, the hero in the story, bought several hundred acres of land near Grandview that is presently owned by the Frank Beards. The old homeplace, with poplar and oak lumbers, was hauled from Houston by ox team, is now the site of the Melvin Wiginton home.
The original home featured four tall columns on the front porch of the 7-room home that was one and a half stories high. Goen was twice married and raised both families on the farm near Grandview. He and Elizabeth Quinn, daughter of B. C. Quinn, were married October 27, 1853.]

Another source identied Prentice Lewis Goen as a “blacksmith from Grandview, Alabama.”

“On the 5th day of March, 1850, I was in the mountains of Mariposa, engaged in digging gold and packing mules to carry freight from Stockton to Mariposa. My partner, James R. Thompson, was taken sick with typhoid fever. It being necessary to take our mules out to graze after attending to my sick partner, I left camp and took an old gentleman to assist in guarding our stock against depredations of thieves.

This old gentlemen who hailed originally from Ken­tucky and was somewhat celebrated as a rifleman, said he wanted to beat me killing dear. After reaching our grazing grounds, we struck our tent, hobbled the mules and our evening hunt commenced.

The Kentuckian planned the programme for each of us to travel, and I remarked to him that if I adopted his suggestion, it being late in the afternoon and rather gloomy, I was afraid that a grizzly bear would get me. I then made my way up about one mile and a half to the summit of a mountain after which I began to direct my course back toward camp, when suddenly I discovered a little bunch of deer.

Just after they had turned over a little hill, I shot one through the heart. Feeling elated at my good luck, I reloaded as rapidly as possible, and eager to get a sec­ond shot, I ran to the brink of the mountain where it made a sudden precipitation of about 50 feet, forming a bench below on which was growing buckeye under­growth. The deer had run around a thicket to ascend a ravine, and I ran through the thicket and found they had become suddenly frightened at what I discovered to be a grizzly bear, which I soon encountered.

I made a sudden halt to take a second shot at the deer when I found that I was within four feet of the largest grizzly I ever laid eyes on. He was lying in his bed, but he got up and made right at me, with the most hideous and terrific growling that could be heard for miles in the mountains. I at once threw my gun on him and the bear commenced to circle around me. I re­served my shot hoping he would make a dash at the muzzle of my gun to take it in his mouth, when I in­tended to give him the contents, but this he declined to do and continued to walk around me for several minutes, making a circuit of forty feet or more. Finally I discovered he was directing his attention more especially to my feet. He had hitherto been looking me straight in the face. I became alarmed at his manner, which seemed to indicate that the gun presented at him was not in his way any longer.

I then fired, but, oh my God, I missed my aim which was directed at his head. My ball, which was oblong, only inflicted a slight wound in the crown of his mouth. At the crack of the gun, he fell to the ground and rolled over, but quickly sprang to his feet and made at me. My gun was presented at him, and he ran against the muzzle and pushed me back some 15 feet or more. By this time I saw it was to be a life or death struggle, and I made up my mind to sell out as deadly as possible.

I then clubbed my gun and let him have it with all my strength over the head, and this I repeated over and over from time to time, but never could knock him down. I think he weighed at least 1,000 pounds, but I tell you he could handle himself with the agility of a cat. In this mortal combat we had fought for 60 yards or more down the steep mountain. I had already bent my gun, but I finally succeeded in dealing him a fearful blow over the nose. This seemed to be more effectual, as he backed his ears and ran off 40 yards, and I believe if I had not hollered then, he would not have returned.

But he did return, and seemingly to renew the fight with redoubled fury. I then struck him with all my strength hoping to force him to give up the fight, but the grizzly dodged my stroke, and the end of my gun struck the ground plowing up the soil several inches, and the gun dropped from my hand and rolled some 15 or 20 steps down the mountain. We both took after it, the grizzly in front. I made a grab at the gun, but missed it six inches. The grizzly was too close. I then picked up a rock and hit him in the face, and he shut his eyes. I thought then that my only chance to save my life was in flight, but I had only gotten about 30 feet when he made a spring and caught me.

In his effort to catch me around the neck, one of his tusks struck my left shoulder, went through my coat and two shirts, inflicting a wound on my neck, threw me to the ground and broke my right hand. The bear was coming with such force that he passed on over me and fell in a tree top and broke the trunk of the tree which was at least nine inches in diameter. I was knocked almost senseless, but I arose as quickly as possible and started down the steep mountain, making frequently 25 to 30 feet at a bound, and alighting on my heels, so great was the descent.

The grizzly outran me, but I would dodge to one side as he would get near me, and while he was checking up to pursue me, I would gain in distance. Finally I ran right up to the brink of a sudden break off the mountain, the brute right behind me in pursuit. I jumped suddenly to one side, hoping he was coming with such rapidity that he would be precipitated down the mountain, but my foot struck a rolling stone which threw me to the ground.

My breath was almost entirely exhausted. I thought I could run no longer. Then I tried to roll down the mountain, but I only rolled about 40 feet when my face struck a stone, inflicting a severe wound from which the blood spouted. I soon found that rolling would not do, as the grizzly which could easily clear 30 feet or more down the maintain would gain too rapidly on me. I started again to run, and as the bear got near me, I would dodge to the right or left, but I had only got a short distance from which I had tried to roll down the mountain when I fell to my knees, and the bear lit just a few feet from me. Then I gave it up. I was completely exhausted. I threw my hands up and gave a faint scream as I threw a little stone in his face. The grizzly stood still for a moment, and looking me straight in the face as he pitched one ear forward and then the other. He seemed to become all at once frightened and ran off about 40 yards.

Then I thought, O my God, if screaming would do any good I would try it again. I raised my hands and again screamed. The bear started up the mountain and got perhaps 60 yards and stopped. Again with uplifted hands, I screamed with all my power. The bear broke off again and continued to run 400 yards or more up the mountain, until it passed out of sight. I retrieved my battered rifle and made my painful way back to camp, bloody from head to foot.

I soon met my comrade, the Kentuckian. He seemed greatly excited when he found me so bloody. During our absence the mules had strayed off. I wanted him to go out and hunt them up, but the poor fellow could only get a few feet from our camp for fear of coming in contact with the grizzly.”

Our mules had returned to camp where we had left the balance of our crowd the day before, among whom was Matt Graham who is well known and who resides in this county. We followed the mules, and I walked nine miles on the tips of my toes, so badly bruised were my heels from the race down the mountain the day before with the grizzly after me.”

The hero of the above thrilling story, Lewis Goen, is a well-to-do farmer who resides near the picturesque little village of Grandview in Johnson County, Texas. When he reached the Mariposa Mountains, he was without money, but he fortunately met with an old friend, a Dr. Ford of Cherokee County, Georgia who kindly presented him with a full outfit of tools to engage in mining. Goen, who was then in the full vigor of youthful manhood, a fraction over six feet in height and weighing about 165 pounds, and never having had a day of sickness with an iron will went to work with a determination to succeed.

At the end of a few months he had accumulated several thousand dollars. After remaining in the mines for five years, he returned to Texas with the saddle bags bulging with the gold nuggets he had mined. He re turned to his native home to visit with friends and family before settling in Texas for life. His mother did not recognize him, he had then been absent 13 years.

For 27 years he was resided on his present homestead, and but few, if any there be, of his neighbors and nu­merous friends ever doubted his account of the combat with the grizzly bear. It appears now at their urgent solicitation, for the first time in print, and verbatim as related by himself through us for publication in the ‘Cleburne Chronicle.’

The gun used by Lewis Goen, in his fight with the grizzly was a blue steel barreled single shot rifle. The scars and scratches made by the teeth of the bear are still plainly visible on the gun which is now in the pos­session of a great-grandson, Wilson Lewis who resides in San Antonio, Texas.”
Wilson Lewis who resides in San Antonio, Texas. Wilson Lewis has two sons who no doubt will inherit this interesting gun of their great-great-grandfather, Lewis Goen.

Virginia LaRue Sandusky Tyler wrote of PrentissLewis Goen:

“Lewis Goen was on his way to the California gold rush in 1849 when he recalled what his father, Dillard Goen had told him, “Son, be sure and look up the Lanes when you reach Texas.” And Lewis did just that. He spent several days in the home of friend, James Addison Lane and his wife, Matilda Wilson Lane in Kopperl, Texas in Bosque County. Lewis did indeed enjoy the visit and had determined in his heart to return for another visit after he made his fortune in the California gold fields.

James Presley “Pres” Goen born September 6, 1870

James Presley “Pres” Goen, son of William Henry Goen, was born in Johnson County September 6, 1870, according to the research of Paul Lynn Goen of Albuquerque, New Mexico.

“Preston Goen” was enumerated in the 1880 census of Johnson County in the household of Joseph Franklin Goen, “a cousin.”

He appeared in the 1900 census of Dickens County, Texas as a “boarder” with A. R. Dillard in Enumeration District 54, page 9. His date of birth was shown as September 1870.

He may also have been enumerated a second time in the 1900 census in adjoining King County, Enumeration District 21, page 6 as “J. P. Goen, born in Texas in July 1874.” Both counties had been created in 1876 by the Texas legislature who named them for William P. King and J. Dickens, Texas heroes who fell at the Alamo. The legislature also specified that a new county must have a minimum of 75 citizens before a county government could be organized. Neither county could muster that many voters, so each borrowed from the other to get enough signatures on the petitions. Many early West Texas men had “citizenship” in several counties.

He was brought to Wise County, Texas in 1883 by Joseph Franklin Goen who shortly began making plans to move north to Indian Territory. “Pres” decided that he would “stay with Texas” and prepared to head west declaring that he “thought he could make it on his own the rest of the way.”

His son, Guy Goen, in an interview with Gerry Burton of the “Lubbock Avalanche-Journal” in May 1986 stated “Pres Goen was hired by the Pitchfork at age 14 because he was the best roper on the place. He wound up manager of the mas­sive ranch. “Back then there were no fences on the Pitchfork which had been put together a couple of years earlier in 1882. The wagons pulled out the first of April and stayed out until Christmas. Wherever the wagons stopped was home for the cowboys working cattle.”

“There was a chuck wagon with the bedrolls and chuck. And there was the hoodlum wagon that carried a barrel of water, kept the chuck wagon supplied with water and wood,” he said. In winter, cattle drifted south, so in the spring “seven or eight outfits” sent their wagons and cowboys to round them up, brand them and head them back north. Each outfit cut out its own cattle and branded the calves following the cows.

The Pitchfork owner let his father run his own cattle on the range, Goen said, and when the elder Goen realized that he had 1,000 cattle on the ranch, he decided it was time to “quit im­posing on the Pitchfork.” He sold his cattle and got his own range.

James Presley “Pres” Goen became a pioneer West Texas ranch owner when he organized the Goen Ranch in Dickens County. He was married May 10, 1903 to Ora Aseniath Blackwell, according to King County Marriage Book 1, page 22. Ora Aseniath Blackwell was born in Bosque County, Texas in 1875.

James Presley “Pres” Goen was the patentee to 72 acres of land located “twelve miles west of the county seat” January 14, 1902, according to King County Deed Book 2, page 167. He purchased land from the Southern Pacific and other railroads December 3, 1903 for $1,476.45, according to King County Deed Book 2, page 196. The land was located 16.5 miles southwest of Guthrie, Texas, the county seat which had not been named at that time.

James Presley “Pres” Goen and Ora Aseniath Blackwell Goen gave a warranty deed to D. B. Gardner to the 72 acres patented to him in 1902 for $90, according to King County Deed Book 2, page 167. The transaction was dated Decem­ber 3, 1903.

James Presley “Pres” Goen received a patent from the State of Texas May 3, 1909 to 652.2 acres. He and Ora Aseniath Blackwell Goen gave a warranty deed to the patented land to W. C. Presley March 18, 1911 for $4,000, according to King County Deed Book 3, page 135. He was a resident of Dickens County at that time. Apparently James Presley “Pres” Goen re­gained title to the land because on November 11, 1912 he sold the patent to G. B. Martin for $8,202.50, according to King County Deed Book 3, page 239.

“J. P. Goen of Guthrie, Texas” received a deed from Mrs. Jim­mie Johnson July 27, 1909 to 640 acres located on White River for $2,560, according to Dickens County Deed Book 16, page 18. He received another deed from Mrs. W. L. Browning Au­gust 2, 1910, according to Dickens County Deed Book 16, page 571. In that year he moved to his new home north of Dickens, and the Goen family ranched there for the next 57 years.

On September 26, 1912 James Presley “Pres” Goen received deeds to six tracts of land from Erie P. Swenson and Swen A. Swenson of Manhattan, New York, according to Dickens County Deed Book 21, page 39‑45. Consideration on the 1,621 acres of land was $10,340.52.

He received additional land from Matador Land & Cattle Com­pany May 2, 1917, according to Dickens County Deed Books 26 and 28, greatly increasing his holdings. On June 19, 1917 he purchased 1,141 additional acres from Matador Land & Cattle Company for $11,415, according to Dickens County Deed Book 26, page 472.

James Presley “Pres” Goen wrote his will June 30, 1951, ac­cording to Dickens County Probate Book 8, page 313. In it were named his wife, Ora Aseniath Blackwell Goen and his son, Guy Goen, executors, and his grandsons, Guy Hugh Goen and John Preston Goen.

James Presley “Pres” Goen died June 12, 1952 at age 81 at his residence two miles north of Spur, Texas, according to Dick­ens County Death Book 7, page 104. His death was attributed to a cerebral hemorrhage and he was buried in Spur Memorial Cemetery.

The estate of James Presley “Pres” Goen was valued at $162,946.79, according to Dickens County Probate Book 8, page 326. Included was 5,242 acres of land located eight miles northwest of Spur, Texas.

Ora Aseniath Blackwell Goen gave a warranty deed to Guy Goen September 15, 1966 to 19 tracts of land in Dickens County, according to Dickens County Deed Book 113, page 379.

Children born to James Presley “Pres” Goen and Ora Ase­niath Blackwell Goen include:

Allie B. Goen born July 25, 1904
Guy Goen born May 20, 1906

Allie B. Goen, daughter of James Presley “Pres” Goen and Ora Aseniath Blackwell Goen, was born July 25, 1904, according to Dickens County Birth Book 1, page 22. Of this individual nothing more is known. It is assumed that she died in child­hood since she did not appear in her father’s will.

Guy Goen, son of James Presley “Pres” Goen and Ora Ase­niath Blackwell Goen, was born May 20, 1906, according to Dickens County Birth Book 1, page 22. He was listed as a student in the 1928‑29 student directory of West Texas State Teachers College, Canyon, Texas. He was enrolled in Texas Technological College, Lubbock, Texas in the fall of 1929, according to the student directory. In 1930‑31 he was a student at the college living at 3004 22nd Street in 1930 and at 2202‑26th Street in 1931, according to the Lubbock city di­rectory. Following graduation from Texas Technological College at the bottom of the depression, he began to build his own ranch, buying up land which his father had sold to neighbors earlier. He was married December 29, 1931 in Crosbyton, Texas to Verna Beechly. She was born May 3, 1912 in Tulare, California.

Guy Goen received a deed from R. J. McAteer to 640 acres of land which he had purchased from James Presley “Pres” Goen originally July 8, 1939 for $5,350.50, according to Dickens County Deed Book 55, page 276.

Guy Goen received a warranty deed from J. C. Thomas for a natural gas connection on land in Floyd County, Texas April 17, 1951, according to Floyd County Deed Book 123, page 415.

Like his father, he also applied a half century of hard work and savvy and also became eminently successful. In later years he turned most of the cow-punchin’ over to others and began to devote time to other interests. He was an elder in the Church of Christ, active in Christian education in West Texas, a great promoter of 4-H clubwork and a ranch cook par excellance.

Guy Goen became famous in West Texas for his ranch cook­ing. He lived in Spur and drove out to the ranch to cook for the ranch hands when a large group gathered.

“I had a chuck box on my pickup,” he related. “I’d hoist it on, go to the ranch. They’d do the work, and I’d cook, have dinner ready for them. Then, I would unhoist it and hang it in the barn. I cooked steak, gravy, red beans and cobbler. I’ve got six dutch ovens, once cooked 18 gallons of peach cobbler, three fillings in each.”

Peach cobbler was his favorite, but ‘hen butter’ ran pretty close as a desert. ‘You take syrup, molasses and sugar, mix it and boil it a while. You add about 15 eggs and boil it again and then let it cool down. It’s got another name, but the punchers at the Pitchfork named it ‘hen butter.’

It wasn’t long until he was hoisting the chuckbox more and more to cook barbecue for 4H and other groups. He started barbecuing for Lubbock Christian College events in 1963 when he became a member of the board of directors. And he always makes the White River children’s camp during summers to cook up a barbecue for each of the four sessions.

Last year, LCC agriculture students built him a barbe­cue trailer that looks like a butane tank with a firebox on one end and a smokestack on the other. ‘It was the best deal I ever got into,’ said Goen who first thought it was a train the ag boys had built for him to drive around the campus.

‘I put 34 briskets on it and cooked them 26 hours. You don’t have to worry about burning the meat. Just keep the temperature at 180 to 225 degrees.’

In 1952 Guy Goen was the owner of a farm located eight miles east and three miles south of Spur. Guy Goen and Verna Goen “of Dickens County” gave a warranty deed to Tom Duvall De­cember 30, 1954 to 160 acres of land in Floyd County, SE/4 of Survey 42, D&P RR for $40,000, according to Floyd County Deed Book 136, page 384.

He was buried in Spur Memorial Cemetery.

He was a member of the board of trustees at Lubbock Christian University, and a member of the advisory board of Abilene Christian University. He was survived by his widow, two sons and two grandchildren. Verna Beechly Goen died October 7, 1996 at Seminole, Texas at age 84. She was buried beside her husband.

104 Florence Co, SC

FLORENCE COUNTY, SOUTH CAROLINA

The Associated Press on March 2, 2002 released an article on the Florence Stockade, a Confederate prison camp used during the Civil War to hold Union prisoners. An excerpt follows:
“Along a road near a honky-tonk and a cluster of trailers sits an overgrown farm field and a little-noticed granite monument.

For a few months late in the Civil War, this ground was a prison for 16,000 Union troops. Many were hastily sent here after Union Gen. Sherman captured Atlanta and Confederates moved prisoners from Georgia’s infamous Andersonville prison.

In many ways, the camp known as the Florence Stockade was the worst prison of the Confederacy with prisoners living in holes and using a tiny stream simultaneously for drinking and sanitary purposes. In the camp’s mere six-month existence from late 1864 to early 1865, some 2,800 men died from malnutrition and disease.”

Goen Childress , fourth child of of David Childress and Annie [Goen?] Childress, was born June 6, 1798 in South Carolina, probably Spartanburg County. David Childress was born there about 1768 and was married in South Carolina about 1789. David Childress was referred to March 3, 1804 in Stewart County, Tennessee Deed Book 1. Humphreys County, Tennessee was organized in 1809 with land from Stewart County and Smith County, and the Childress family found themselves in Humphreys County. Annie was born about 1774 in North Carolina, according to her enumeration in the 1850 census of Humphreys County, Tennessee. David Childress died there in October 1850.
Goen Childress was married about 1818 to Orpha Box, daughter of Moses Box and Nancy Box. She was born in South Carolina February 6, 1799.

Goen Childress reappeared in the 1830 cenus of Humphreys County as the head of a household.
An early lexicon gave a description of early days in Humphreys County:
“Waverly, the county seat of Humphreys County, is a flourishing inland town of about 800 inhabitants, and is situated very near the center of the county on the St. Louis branch of the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway, 67 miles west of Nashville and 11 miles east of Johnsonville on the Tennessee River. Trace Creek flows through the north portion of the town, and is spanned by a substantial foot bridge, 320 feet in length. At the time the commissioner elected Waverly for the new county seat, where the town now stands was an open field embracing 40 acres, which was owned by Gowan Childers and Christopher Wagoner, the former owning the northeast 10 acres and the latter the balance. In the summer of 1836 the above gentlemen donated the entire forty-acre tract without reserve to the county, and in the following fall the town was surveyed and laid out into town lots. Some time during December of the same year the lots were sold to the highest bidder, all being thus disposed of except one, which was donated or deeded to Gowan Childers, on which to erect a residence.”
“Gowen Childress” was enumerated at the head of Household 403-403 in the 1850 census of Marshall County, page 237.

Gowan Clayton was enumerated in the 1790 census for the Greenville area of the District 96, according to the research of Mrs. Betty Clayton Hilton of Charlotte, North Carolina. She wrote:
“I believe Gowan Clayton to be the son of “Jaermeiah Claton” who was also enumerated in the 1790 Spartan-burg area of District 96. He was living with one female over 16, probably his wife. I have not found Jeremiah in any census thereafter. The next time I find him is in 1825. In the records of Spartanburg County Commis-sioners of the Poor the following is reported: ‘Paid Gow-in Cleaton, Agent for Jeremiah Clayton $12.50. Paid Goin Clayton in full to the present time $12.00.’ This continues through Aug. of 1826.

Gowan Clayton was in the 1790 and 1800 Census in the Greenville District, but not appear in Spartanburg Dis-trict until 1810. Then there were two Gowan Claytons in the 1810 and 1820 Census in Spartanburg District. There is a Gowan Clayton, Jr. on a land grant which indicates that there must have been a Gowan Clayton,Sr. somewhere around. The 1790 census gives Gowan Clayton’s age as 32. So where was he during those 32 years? Was this Gowan Clayton the “junior” on the land grant and the Gowan Clayton listed in Spartanburg, age 27, actually Gowan Clayton the “Third?”

Gowan Clayton is listed as the agent for Jeremiah Clay-ton. Jeremiah Clayton was listed on the 1755 Tax list for Granville County, North Carolina and also listed on the muster roll for Col. William Eaton’s Militia Regi-ment, Capt. John Sallis’ company in 1754 [along with the Gowen individuals.]

I am descended from:

Gowan Clayton, Jr. and Frances Clayton
Solomon Clayton and Nancy Brashears Clayton
John Gowan Clayton and Sarah Elizabeth Barnett
Joseph Washington Clayton and Nancy Jane Babb
Roman Gowan Clayton and Allie Cole Clayton”

“Greer–Funeral services for John Gowan Clayton who died at his home were held last Monday at the Holly Springs Baptist church conducted by Rev. W. Y. Hen-derson. Interment will follow in the churchyard beside his wife who preceded him 11 years ago. Mr. Clayton was a successful farmer of the Holly Springs section and has made his home in the community all his life.

He was a Confederate veteran and served four years in Company C, 22nd South Carolina Infantry Regiment and was held in high esteem by all that knew him.

“Inman, SC Dec. 30, 1912

Dear Johny & Maggie
I have thought many times of you all, since I seen you and would be so glad to see you now. I have had lots of trouble since I seen you but there is always some way for any one that will try to get along. When Azzie died and left me with 8 children — one 5 months old, I could not see what to doo but I at once made up my mind to keep them all together. The baby died 10 days after Az-zie did. and the rest of the children and myself are toga-ther and getting along nicely. All are in school but one little girl 4 years old. She stays with Buddy Blackwell’s wife during school hours then they all come home and do the work of housekeeping. I am carrying the mail on RFD and am at home until 8:30 am and get back by 3:30 pm, so you see I can be at home most of the time when the children are. I guess you can hardly realize that 3 of my children are nearly grown. Olive is grown. Guy is 15 and weighs 135#. Bessie is almost as large as Olive, and best of all each does their part of the work cheerfully.

Well Johny I have just come from the burial of Mr. Wm. Bridges. There has been several deaths of old people that I suppose you remember. Adam Ballenger was buried a week ago. B. B. Chapman also about 10 days ago. Mr. T. E. Moore, Pres. of Tucapau Mills also died a short time ago.

About 4 weeks ago we thought Pa would die for 3 or 4 days but he is up again, but very feeble. Can’t last many months more.

Your Father was up to see me 2 weeks ago, he is very well and jovial as can be. Johny there were several South Carolinians left here for Okla few days ago. Joe Wingo and Family, Judd Hammett and Joe Suttle, they are at Wynne Wood.

Well Johny, I will close. Write me soon. I would be glad to hear from all often. Best Wishes for you & Maggie as you start on the new year.
C. M. Gowan.

ADAM BALLENGER. 13C/H/G and Dunlop’s Sharpshooters, b. 1/17/44, d. 2/18/1912, b. Inman Baptist Church. Adam was a true hero and the following comes from Landrum’s History of Spartanburg.

Adam Washington Ballanger Not on Landrum’s list, but the following comes from his sketch in the text. Born in 1844 in Inman. Entered the service in Co. C, 13th SCV as a Sergeant, and remained such until 1863. “By order of Gen. Lee, he was promoted for distinguished gallantry on the battlefield.” At 2nd Cold Harbor (31 May – 12 June 1864), in a charge against the enemy when the latter was thrown into confusion and were in the act of retreating, young Ballenger, separating himself from his command and alone, rushed forward and mounted one of the guns of the enemy’s artillery. This bold daring caused the driver of the horses conveying the piece to jump off on the tongue. Ballenger immediately, in order to secure the capture of the gun, jumped off the piece , cut loose the traces and unfastened the off-horse, which he mounted. In returning to his command he met his Captain (J. W. Carlisle), who informed him that his brother Joseph was wounded and had been left in the rear. B!
allenger then went in quest of his brother. But in the meanwhile a party of the enemy had whipped around one wing of the Confederate forces, but finding they were liable to be cut off retreated, but carried Joseph Ballenger away with them, who was imprisoned at Point Lookout, and soon died. Lt. Ballenger never saw his brother again after he left him before the beginning of the charge.

“The gallant conduct on the part of young Ballenger had been witnessed by Gen. McGowan, who sent for him in a day or two afterwards to report to his headquarters. Young Ballenger obeyed the orders and reported. Having no idea for what purpose he was wanted. On arriving at the headquarters of Gen. McGowan, he was congratulated by the General, whop informed him that he had recommended that he be commissioned a 1st Lt. Receiving his commission, he was assigned to Co. H of the 13th regiment, but in a ferw months thereafter he was appointed to one of the companies of Dunlop’s Battalion of Lee’s Sharpshooters, three companies of which were made up of McGowan’s Brigade. Here he remained in command of its first company of this organization, rendering distinguished service until the 27th of March 1865, when he was severely wounded in the arm and hip on the picket line in front of Petersburg. He was conveyed to Richmond, and was there when the surrender at Appomattox took place a few !
days afterward. While in the Jackson Hospital at Richmond still suffering from his wounds, he was taken with typhoid fever, from which he came very near losing his life. During this time he was visited and administered to by three daughter of Gen. R. E. Lee, a daughter of Gen. Ewell, and Miss Rosa Lee Powers. after some four four months of suffering he recovered sufficiently to return home. He was ordered to the State Capitol building to take the oath of allegience. Not relishing this, however, slipped away, bringing with him his army sword, and after walking several miles out of the city he boarded the train, and after many trying difficulties reached his home.”

The story must have had a happy ending because he married Emma Wingo in 1866, and they had 14 children.

Fifth Reg. -(The 5th regiment had over 1200 records which amounted to some 600 men.. Many of them left the regiment in 1862 to go to the Palmetto Sharpshooters. I estimate there were over 200 still surviving in 1891)

Fifth Cavalry-(18 served in the unit and at least 9 were still alive in 1891)

15th Reg.- (66 men served and 47 of these survived. Only 2 surrendered at Greensboro which shows the significance of the large percentage of the Sharpshooters.

There were other [Orr’s Rifles, Hampton’s legion, etc. None of the Reserve units were listed and there were 100s to serve in those units and most of these people were still alive in 1891.)

The 1800 census of Union District enumerates the household of Adam Kilpatrick:

“Kilpatrick, Adam white male 26-45
white female 45 & up
white male 0-10
white female 0-10
white female 0-10”

Adam Kilpatrick is shown in the census in the following order: five households above–James Spillars, Frederic Isen, Joseph Howard, Isaac Hawkins and George Boren–then Adam Kilpatrick, then 5 below–Alexander McDonald, John Bogan, John Eubanks, James Martin and William Comer.

In the 1810 census of Union District Adam Kilpatrick is incorrectly shown as “Robin” Kilpatrick in the index. By looking at the actual record, I determined it was really Adam but the transcriber put down “Robin” [perhaps Robin was a middle name.]:

Kilpatrick, Robin white male over 45
white female 26-45
white male 16-26
white male 10-16
white female 10-16
white male 10-16
white female 10-16
white male 0-10
white male 0-10
white female 0-10
white male 0-10

He and his neighbors were shown in the following order: Jacob Harrison, William Harrison, Samuel Henry, Charles Humphrey and Jesse Hughes—Kilpatrick—then Anthony Leek, John Roger and Paul Maze.

In the 1820 census of Jasper County, Georgia Adam Kilpat-rick and wife are shown with one young son, under 10.

In 1824 Adam Kilpatrick was married to Jane Smith in New-ton County, Georgia.

In the 1830 census of Newton County Adam Kilpatrick is enumerated as:

“Kilpatrick, Adam white male 80-90
white female 40-50 [Jane Smith]
white male 15-20”

In the 1840 census of Newton County, Adam Kilpatrick is enumerated as:

“Kilpatrick, Adam white male 80-90

In 1850 the household was enumerated as:

“Kilpatrick, Adam 105, pauper, born in Ireland
Jane 70, born in GA

1800 Union Co census shows Adam Kilpatrick (26 to 45), 1 female (45 and up), 1 male under 10, 2 females under 10. He is shown in the following order, 5 above James Spillars, Frederic Isen, Joseph Howard, Isaac Hawkins, George Borer?, then Adam Kilpatrick, then 5 below, Alexander McDonald, John Bogan, John Eubanks, James Martin, William Comer.

In 1810 Union Co Adam is incorrectly shown as “Robin” Kilpatrick in the index. By looking at the actual record I determined it was really Adam but the transcriber put down Robin – due to bad writing, hard to read etc on the census record. In 1810 Adam is shown as age 45 and up, and now there is a female age 26 to 45. There are also 3 males under 10, 2 males 10 to 16, 1 male 16 to 26, 1 female under 10, and 2 females 10 to 16. He is shown in the following order Jacob Harrison, William Harrison, Samuel Henry, Charles Humphrey, Jesse Hughes, Adam Kilpatrick, Anthony Leek, John Roger, Paul Maze??, end of page. Further up the page there are 3 Haney families, 2 Gregory’s and 2 Garretts.

In 1820 Adam and wife are shown in Jasper Co Ga with one young son, under 10. In 1824 Adam married Jane Smith in Newton Co GA. (need to recheck this)

In 1830 Adam is shown in Newton Co GA age 80 to 90 with wife Jane Smith age 40 to 50, and one male age 15 to 20, probably the same young male shown in the 1820 Jasper Co census. (need to recheck the ages)

In 1840 Newton Co GA Adam and Jane Smith are shown age 80 to 90 and 40 to 50 respectively with no other people in the household.

In 1850 Newton Co GA, Adam is shown age 105 pauper born in Ireland, and wife Jane Smith is age 70 born in GA.

So maybe Adam had his first 3 children by Elizabeth Bogan, 1 male, and 2 females all born between 1790 and 1800, and these are the older children on the 1810 census. Then there are an additional 5 sons and an additional 2 daughters on the 1810 census, maybe by Rhoda Going. This would make a total of 6 sons and 3 daughters. Of course Adam could have had more children by previous wives in Ireland.

From a website on the family of John Bogan:
The last will of John Bogan was dated 28 November 1803 and was proved in Union County SC on 21 Dec 1805. The will implies there may be additional daughters who are not named in the will but following relationships are:

Wife or widow not mentioned so presumed dead
Son: Isaac Bogan
Daughters and deceased daughters
Elizabeth Kilpatrick’s minors
Granddaughter: Elizabeth Craddock
Grandson: Valentine Bogan
Others, relationship not stated:
Nevil Holcomb
Adam Kilpatrick
Executor: John Bell
Witnesses: Solomon Sparm, William Rountree
When her father, John Bogan, wrote his will on 28 Novembe 1803, Elizabeth Bogan Kilpatrick was deceased, leaving minor children, who were not named in John Bogan’s will. Adam Kilpatrick was mentioned but his relationship was not defined. (NOTE: maybe this Adam is Adam Jr., a grandson of John Bogan. Per the 1800 census for Adam Kilpatrick, there was 1 male under 10, 2 females under 10, 1 male 26 t0 45, 1 female 45 and up.)

Adam Kilpatrick Notes (South Carolina) (“UN” indicates files or microfilm reels at SC archives for Union County)

UN 35 – the naturalization petition of Adam Kilpatrick in 1812, states he was a native of Ireland and had been in this “country” since June 1790. Note – the petition itself has the date 1786 crossed out. From looking at records he was in Union County by June 1790 – he had almost immediate dealings there almost since the day he supposedly arrived in this country. And he could hardly land in Charleston, the closest port in June 1790, and be somewhat established in Union County several days later. Therefore I think maybe he arrived several years earlier and lived in Union “County” not “this Country” from June 1790 til he petitioned for naturalization in 1812. Need to check records for War of 1812.

UN 21 – court of common pleas index shows a “Kilpatrick Iss’s? exer Thomas Gilham” – looks like a Thomas Gilham admistered the estate of a Kilpatrick, but could not make out the name. This was from the index. When I requested the file itself they could not find it and stated they knew some of their files were lost or missing. That’s too bad, this one might have really helped.

UN 21 – other references which may or may not mean anything. Index shows Samuel Chandler and John Tomblain. The Chandler and Tomblin surnames later show up in GA. Thomas Kirkpatrick and Fleming Harris, and Kirkpatrick, Hall and Co and A W Thomson. These Kirkpatricks appear later on in the 1800s in the Union SC records and may not have any connection to the early Kilpatricks. Actually Adam and his family appear to be the only Klpatricks in early Union Records.

There are lots of Bogan records in Union Distr. Adam Kilpatrick married a Bogan.

UN 23 – Adam Kilpatrick, disposition/peace warrant, 1806.

Feb 8, 1815 Adam Kilpatrick of County of Putnam, State of GA, for $100 from Samuel Chandler of Union Dist.SC, sold 100 acres in Union District on the waters of Fair Forest, Ress Edward’s line, Mr. Smith’s Corner, adjoining Tomlin’s land to Jesse Clark’s line. Witnessed by Theophilus Goodyear. (NOTE: this may be Adam Kilpatrick Jr., the one who later married Mary Johnson in Putnam Co in 1824. Adam Sr. married Jane Smith in Newton Co in 1824. The Adam in this deed may be the son of Adam and Elizabeth Bogan).

21 Dec, 1822 – Deed says Adam Kilpatrick of Union SC (indicates the older Adam stayed in SC longer and left for GA later than Adam Jr) sells to William Tomblin for $100 50 acres where he now lives – corner of Jesse Clark through Ress Edward’s line, witnessed by Thomas O’Neal and Jesse Clark. This deed was recorded in 1822, although it was dated 2 Nov 1815. So maybe Adam Jr. left for GA in Feb 1815, and Adam Sr. left in Nov 1815? This older Adam appears in the 1820 Jasper Co GA census, however I have never found the younger Adam and Mary Johnson in any censuses of GA, so maybe they left GA and went west. Jasper Co GA is also where many of the Bogans from Union District went, as well as some McJunkins.

In 1830 Adam is shown in Newton Co GA age 80 to 90 with wife Jane Smith age 40 to 50, and one male age 15 to 20, probably the same young male shown in the 1820 Jasper Co census. (need to recheck the ages)

In 1840 Newton Co GA Adam and Jane Smith are shown age 80 to 90 and 40 to 50 respectively with no other people in the household.

In 1850 Newton Co GA, Adam is shown age 105 pauper born in Ireland, and wife Jane Smith is age 70 born in GA.

So maybe Adam had his first 3 children by Elizabeth Bogan, 1 male, and 2 females all born between 1790 and 1800, and these are the older children on the 1810 census. Then there are an additional 5 sons and an additional 2 daughters on the 1810 census, maybe by Rhoda Going. This would make a total of 6 sons and 3 daughters. Of course Adam could have had more children by previous wives in Ireland.

From a website on the family of John Bogan:
The last will of John Bogan was dated 28 November 1803 and was proved in Union County SC on 21 Dec 1805. The will implies there may be additional daughters who are not named in the will but following relationships are:

Wife or widow not mentioned so presumed dead
Son: Isaac Bogan
Daughters and deceased daughters
Elizabeth Kilpatrick’s minors
Granddaughter: Elizabeth Craddock
Grandson: Valentine Bogan
Others, relationship not stated:
Nevil Holcomb
Adam Kilpatrick
Executor: John Bell
Witnesses: Solomon Sparm, William Rountree
When her father, John Bogan, wrote his will on 28 Novembe 1803, Elizabeth Bogan Kilpatrick was deceased, leaving minor children, who were not named in John Bogan’s will. Adam Kilpatrick was mentioned but his relationship was not defined. (NOTE: maybe this Adam is Adam Jr., a grandson of John Bogan. Per the 1800 census for Adam Kilpatrick, there was 1 male under 10, 2 females under 10, 1 male 26 t0 45, 1 female 45 and up.)

Adam Kilpatrick Notes (South Carolina) (“UN” indicates files or microfilm reels at SC archives for Union County)

UN 35 – the naturalization petition of Adam Kilpatrick in 1812, states he was a native of Ireland and had been in this “country” since June 1790. Note – the petition itself has the date 1786 crossed out. From looking at records he was in Union County by June 1790 – he had almost immediate dealings there almost since the day he supposedly arrived in this country. And he could hardly land in Charleston, the closest port in June 1790, and be somewhat established in Union County several days later. Therefore I think maybe he arrived several years earlier and lived in Union “County” not “this Country” from June 1790 til he petitioned for naturalization in 1812. Need to check records for War of 1812.

UN 21 – court of common pleas index shows a “Kilpatrick Iss’s? exer Thomas Gilham” – looks like a Thomas Gilham admistered the estate of a Kilpatrick, but could not make out the name. This was from the index. When I requested the file itself they could not find it and stated they knew some of their files were lost or missing. That’s too bad, this one might have really helped.

UN 21 – other references which may or may not mean anything. Index shows Samuel Chandler and John Tomblain. The Chandler and Tomblin surnames later show up in GA. Thomas Kirkpatrick and Fleming Harris, and Kirkpatrick, Hall and Co and A W Thomson. These Kirkpatricks appear later on in the 1800s in the Union SC records and may not have any connection to the early Kilpatricks. Actually Adam and his family appear to be the only Klpatricks in early Union Records.

There are lots of Bogan records in Union Distr. Adam Kilpatrick married a Bogan.

UN 23 – Adam Kilpatrick, disposition/peace warrant, 1806.

Feb 8, 1815 Adam Kilpatrick of County of Putnam, State of GA, for $100 from Samuel Chandler of Union Dist.SC, sold 100 acres in Union District on the waters of Fair Forest, Ress Edward’s line, Mr. Smith’s Corner, adjoining Tomlin’s land to Jesse Clark’s line. Witnessed by Theophilus Goodyear. (NOTE: this may be Adam Kilpatrick Jr., the one who later married Mary Johnson in Putnam Co in 1824. Adam Sr. married Jane Smith in Newton Co in 1824. The Adam in this deed may be the son of Adam and Elizabeth Bogan).

21 Dec, 1822 – Deed says Adam Kilpatrick of Union SC (indicates the older Adam stayed in SC longer and left for GA later than Adam Jr) sells to William Tomblin for $100 50 acres where he now lives – corner of Jesse Clark through Ress Edward’s line, witnessed by Thomas O’Neal and Jesse Clark. This deed was recorded in 1822, although it was dated 2 Nov 1815. So maybe Adam Jr. left for GA in Feb 1815, and Adam Sr. left in Nov 1815? This older Adam appears in the 1820 Jasper Co GA census, however I have never found the younger Adam and Mary Johnson in any censuses of GA, so maybe they left GA and went west. Jasper Co GA is also where many of the Bogans from Union District went, as well as some McJunkins.

1800 Union Co census shows Adam Kilpatrick (26 to 45), 1 female (45 and up), 1 male under 10, 2 females under 10. He is shown in the following order, 5 above James Spillars, Frederic Isen, Joseph Howard, Isaac Hawkins, George Borer?, then Adam Kilpatrick, then 5 below, Alexander McDonald, John Bogan, John Eubanks, James Martin, William Comer.

In 1810 Union Co Adam is incorrectly shown as “Robin” Kilpatrick in the index. By looking at the actual record I determined it was really Adam but the transcriber put down Robin – due to bad writing, hard to read etc on the census record. In 1810 Adam is shown as age 45 and up, and now there is a female age 26 to 45. There are also 3 males under 10, 2 males 10 to 16, 1 male 16 to 26, 1 female under 10, and 2 females 10 to 16. He is shown in the following order Jacob Harrison, William Harrison, Samuel Henry, Charles Humphrey, Jesse Hughes, Adam Kilpatrick, Anthony Leek, John Roger, Paul Maze??, end of page. Further up the page there are 3 Haney families, 2 Gregory’s and 2 Garretts.

In 1820 Adam and wife are shown in Jasper Co Ga with one young son, under 10. In 1824 Adam married Jane Smith in Newton Co GA. (need to recheck this)

In 1830 Adam is shown in Newton Co GA age 80 to 90 with wife Jane Smith age 40 to 50, and one male age 15 to 20, probably the same young male shown in the 1820 Jasper Co census. (need to recheck the ages)

In 1840 Newton Co GA Adam and Jane Smith are shown age 80 to 90 and 40 to 50 respectively with no other people in the household.

In 1850 Newton Co GA, Adam is shown age 105 pauper born in Ireland, and wife Jane Smith is age 70 born in GA.

So maybe Adam had his first 3 children by Elizabeth Bogan, 1 male, and 2 females all born between 1790 and 1800, and these are the older children on the 1810 census.

In the preceding installment, the Newsletter readers were introduced to a group of South Carolinians identified as “Free Negroes, Mulattoes and Mustizoes” which included Isaac Going, Levi Going, Edward Going, Sr. and Edward Going, Jr. They had joined 17 other men of Camden District in petitioning the State Legislature for a reduction in their taxes which had been doubled, only on free people of color, in 1791. Apparently their petition, which was endorsed by prominent men of Fairfield County, was denied.

The Goings and several of the 17 other men appeared on the frontier of Western Kentucky shortly afterward. Inequitable taxation and other forms of discrimination in South Carolina apparently prompted the move.

Alex C. Finley was an early-day historian in northwest Kentucky who wrote five volumes dealing with the early history and development of Western Kentucky and Middle Tennessee. He related the settlements of Nashville, the Cumberland area, Sumner County, Tennessee and Logan County, Kentucky as an integral unit. Settlements in this area were made primarily by people from Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina.

His first volume was entitled, “The History of Russellville and Logan County, Kentucky.” He paid particular attention to the men of influence who help shape the destiny of the frontier and its pioneers. One of the most influential was Rev. James McGready, a preacher who came from North Carolina. In 1796, McGready brought the Restoration movement to Logan County with a series of revivals. He established the Muddy River Church and two other congregations in the County. Out of this restoration effort came three churches—the Christian Church, the Church of Christ and the Pentecostal Church.

Finley offered some insight into some of the participants in the Muddy River congregation:

“We give the following family history as part of the tradition of the families of which we are about to write, and you readers must accept [or reject] to suit yourselves.

One Morriss, a Portuguese, and Bird, Portee and Goins, Egyptians [Africans] were slavers; that is, they owned a vessel which they used to kidnap negroes from the coast of Africa, transport them to America and sell them into slavery. On one occasion, a fearful storm arose and drove their vessel to wreck on the coast of South Carolina.

These men and their families were all saved from drowning, and when they attempted to form alliances with the white people, the whites objected to their sons and daughters marrying Portuguese and Egyptians. So these people intermarried with each other, and after living there for several years and failing to be recognized by the white people as equals, concluded to emigrate to North Carolina where they expected to meet with a more cordial reception.

However, one Cole, an Englishman who had come from his home, settled in the back woods of North Carolina and married a Cherokee Indian. So he and the ones already alluded to found themselves outside the pales of white society and refusing to marry negroes, they all intermarried and became related to each other.

After trying unsuccessfully to be admitted into the white society in North Carolina, they finally concluded to emigrate to the west, across the mountains, and so a portion of these came to near Lexington, Kentucky about the year 1795. About 1797, they removed to Logan County and settled on the head waters of Muddy River where the others met them.

William Morriss settled where Sam’l Poindexter now lives; Portee on Morton’s farm, and Goins, Bird and Cole close by. Lewis Moore came from Carolina in 1798 and organized a Baptist Church not far from the head springs of Muddy River. These people, Morriss, Bird, Goins, Portee and Cole and their families became members.”

With reference to Petition 164 which was submitted by John Morriss and William Morriss to the South Carolina Legislature for tax relief, many of the same men who signed the petition appeared as members of the Muddy River congregation. Finley supplies one additional name, Portee [Porter?].

The Logan County tax list of 1796 shows Morriss, Bird, Anderson and Harris individuals. By 1799, Cole, Portee and Going appear on the tax list, and all still carry the classification of “Free People of Color.”

To narrow the research, consideration was given only to the Morriss and Going families. Four Going men signed Petition 164: Isaac Going, Levi Going, Edward Going, Sr. and Edward Going, Jr. Tax lists of Logan County for 1799 show Isaac Going, Edward Going, Sr. and Edward Going, Jr. in the militia company [tax area] of Rev. Israel McGready, Commissioner. The 1800 census of Logan County enumerates the families of Isaac Going, Edward Going and Jabez Going. William Going was recorded in Madison County near Lexington.

On December 16, 1798, “Edward Goen, an assignee of William Cole,” received a survey of 200 acres on Muddy Creek, according to Logan County Surveyor’s Book B, page 87. In March 1802, Edward Going received 400 acres that lay on Green River. On December 29, 1803, “Edward Goins” made an entry on 320 acres that lay along Green River, according to Surveyor’s Book C, page 50.

Isaac Goins was enumerated as the head of a household in the 1810 census of Logan County. Isaac Porter was married to Elizabeth Goin August 11, 1812, according to Logan County marriage records.

Reuben Goin was listed on the 1804 tax list of Livingston County, according to “Trigg County–Gateway to the Jackson Purchase” by Eurie P. Neel. He was located in the vicinity of Flynn’s Ferry Road in the northern part of Crittenden County when that county was created from Livingston in 1842.

John Going received a land grant of 117 acres on Crooked Creek October 1, 1805. The grant was located South of the Green River, according to Livingston County Deed Book 23, page 472.

“Winnie Gowan” was born to “Isaac Gowan and Clata Gowan,” according to Sandra L. Hollingsworth, Foundation Member of South Bend, Indiana in a letter written April 15, 1999. “Winney Goin” was married April 22, 1815 to Ezekiel Anderson, according to “Logan County, Kentucky Marriages, 1790-1897.”

On October 30, 1817, Edward Going was a cosignor on a promissory note made by John Levi Going of Livingston County, Kentucky which had been created in 1798. John Levi Going is our great-great-grandfather and is regarded as a kinsman of Edward Going.

By the time of the 1820 census, no Going individuals remained in Logan County. Where was Edward Going? Were the South Carolina Going families on the move again? Yes, across the Ohio River into Illinois and up the Wabash River to Crawford County, Illinois. But that’s another story.

Part IV

In the preceding installments, the Newsletter readers were introduced to a group of South Carolinians identified as “Free Negroes, Mulattoes and Mustizoes” which included Isaac Going, Levi Going, Edward Going, Sr. and Edward Going, Jr. They had joined 17 other men of Camden District in petitioning the State Legislature for a reduction in their taxes which had been doubled, only on free people of color, in 1791. Apparently the petition, which was endorsed by prominent men of Fairfield County, was denied.

The Goings and several of the 17 other men appeared on the frontier of Western Kentucky shortly afterward. Inequitable taxation and other forms of discrimination in South Carolina apparently prompted the move.

Alex C. Finley was an early-day historian in northwest Kentucky who wrote five volumes dealing with the early history and development of Western Kentucky and Middle Tennessee.

As stated earlier in this series concerning the exodus of the South Carolina tax protesters William and John Morriss, Birds, Goings, Portee and Coies to North Carolina and then on to Kentucky, Finley wrote:

“A portion of them came to near Lexington, Kentucky about the year 1795 and then about 1797 removed to Logan County and settled on the waters of Muddy River.”

Finley’s statement implies that another portion of them either stayed in North Carolina or went elsewhere. When the group left South Carolina, they did indeed leave family behind and probably the same occurred in North Carolina.

Some of the group went to Ft. Vincennes on the Wabash River in Northwest Territory circa 1797. A French fort was established there in 1702 by Francois Margane de Vincennes. It was captured by the British in 1777 and renamed Ft. Sackville. Gen. George Rogers Clark captured Ft. Sackville February 25, 1779 during the Revolutionary War for the American colonies.

On May 7th 1800, this frontier region became known as Indiana Territory which included present-day Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and part of Minnesota This territory was divided into counties with Vincennes as its capital.

Not many early documents on the Going family survived in Indiana Territory. Only bits and pieces are left to provide a glimpse into the past. In the book, “The History Of Green and Sullivan Counties, State of Indiana” is recorded a tale of “an old darkey, Canaan Goen.” “Canaan Gowen” was born in Botetourt County, Virginia about 1775. He was enlisted as a private in the Second Kentucky Regiment in the War of 1812. He fought at Detroit and in the Battle of Thames River. The Melungeon “Cannon Gowen” was enumerated in the
1830 census of Clay County, Indiana. “Canaan Goans” was married March 12, 1835, about age 60, to Susan Tucker in nearby Fountain County and was enumerated there in 1840. [Newsletter, March 1998]

The Knox County census of Indiana Territory of 1807 lists John Morris, and Randolph County lists John Gowen and William Goins. Invalid pensioners of the U.S. of 1807 include Charles Gowens [Newsletter, January 1990] at the rate of $2.50 per month, Thomas Harris at the rate of $15 per month and in 1808 Joseph Bird at the rate of $4 per month.

The book “A Guidebook to Historic Vincennes, Indiana” by Gerald Haffine contains a reference to John Morris:

“The lovely old pioneer landmark, the Maria Creek Church organized in May 1809 is soon to have a new life. It will be used as an international non-denominational chapel on the campus of Vincennes University.

The quaint brick church, abandoned in 1847, stood in a grove of shagbark hickory trees in North Knox County. Among the 13 charter members of the church were Judge William Polk trusted scout and interpreter of Gen. William Henry Harrison and later a member of the 1816 constitutional convention.

Maj. William Bruce, founder of the town of Bruceville and a friend of Abraham Lincoln, Samuel Allison for whom a township was named in Lawrence County, Illinois and John Morriss, identified only as a “man of color” in the church record were among its charter members. The old church became identified with two racial groups, the African Negroes and the American Indians, for it took a courageous stand in the defense of these people.”

The old church has been moved, rebuilt and now stands on the campus of Vincennes University and is renamed Maria Chapel. A residence hall on that campus has been named after John Morriss.”

The book by Jacqueline Cortez, “Contributions In Black and Red” states:

“Some of the earliest settlements in Indiana Territory were founded by Negro men and women. Thomas Coles of Lyle Station, Indiana was a prominent farmer. The residents of Pink Staff and Ft. Allison, Illinois can trace their ancestors as far back as 1800. They emigrated from Kentucky, South Carolina, North Carolina and Tennessee. Most of these residents are a mixture of Negro, Indian and Caucasian.

Two of the families that settled in Lawrence County around 1800 were Samuel and Frederick Allison and the family of John Morris. The Allisons were from Mason County, Kentucky and the Morris family was from Camden District in South Carolina. John Morris, the Anderson family and Austin Tan assisted Samuel Allison in building Ft. Allison. They also acted as Indian scouts around Ft. Allison. In the War Of 1812, the father of the three Anderson brothers was killed.”

Daisy Barnes, interviewed for “Contributions In Black and Red,” gives the account of her family being forced to leave North Carolina because of race hatred, of their traveling in a covered wagon and arriving in Lawrence County, Illinois at Allison Prairie, She also relates that her grandmother, a Portee was a Cherokee Indian.

Evelyn Portee Allen provided her family history relating that John and Harriet Portee came to Illinois from North Carolina by wagon train at the time of the “Trail of Tears” and that they were Cherokee Indians. Included was a picture of John and Harriet Portee and their family. They were light complexioned people, some with very fine European/Portuguese features and some resembling Indians.

In her letter she wrote about the Portee family cemetery in which her grandparents are buried and of Going family members buried there also.

The Going family accompanied the Portee and Morris families in coming to Indiana and Illinois. Not much is found on the Goings except in early census records.

“Brinkerhoff’s History of Jefferson County, Illinois” states:

“One of the first mills in Jefferson County was kept by old Billy Going, as early as 1817. He also operated a tavern and a grocery in which he kept a great many other things including bad company. His mill was only resorted to by the better class of people in the case of extreme emergency.

William Going had a bad reputation and was accused of being connected with horse thieves, counterfeiters, and other lawless characters. His tavern was the headquarters of a band who committed, as was supposed, many dark deeds.

But as the county settled up, a better class of person came in, and the lawless band who frequented Going’s Tavern were cleaned out. Their king bee, Going, was forced to leave for the good of the country.”

“Brinkerhoff’s History Of Marion County Illinois” relates an additional story about the Going family:

“From the earliest settlements of Illinois by the Americans after [Gen. George Rogers] Clark’s conquest, there has been a class of very undesirable citizens hovering on the borders near Vincennes, Shawneetown and at Cave In The Rock on the Ohio.

A regular channel by which these cutthroats and robbers conducted their nefarious barter was kept open with stations along the way, so that property stolen in the Eastern settlements was sold in the West and that stolen in Randolph and St. Clair Counties was
sold in the East at Vincennes or Shawnee town.

In 1816 an attempt to make a station at Walnut Hill for these thieves was made and several families of these undesirable people settled or rather squatted near Walnut Hill. Their neighbors soon suspected that something was wrong, as counterfeit money was put in circulation, and many mysterious strangers were seen to visit them.

Word was conveyed to the rangers of St. Clair County, who in 1819, under Captains Thomas and Bankson moved secretly to the home of the ringleader. Divided into parties of 15 men each, they quietly surrounded the cabins of the outlaws and captured them without  resistance.

The captured cutthroats were known as the Going Gang, consisting of William, John and Pleasant Going, Theophilus W. Harring, Tarleton Kane and John Bimberry and others who were not at home. The Going individuals were told that they must leave the county within a given number of days under the penalty of death!

To impress upon their minds that the edict must be obeyed, they were all lashed to saplings and given an unmerciful whipping. By the appointed time all had departed, and none ever returned.”

The above named Going men were found in the 1818 census of Illinois which places William Going in Madison County. Pleasant Going in St. Clair County and John Going in Washington County. In 1819 they were in Randolph County, and by 1820, they are all in Jefferson County.

Because of the allegations concerning the Going gang, I want to introduce to you Aaron Going, [Newsletter, March 1996] part of my family in Crittenden County, Kentucky who owned property on
