1776 – James Goyne was first called to serve in the Fairfield County, South Carolina militia in 1776. 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.

1778 Feb – Capt. John “Buck” Gowen and his troops appeared in District 96 in February 1778 on military duty.  His brother-in-law John Bearden filed a pension application, recorded in “Kings Mountain Manuscripts,” Volume 2, page 239:
“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

1781 – Drury Going volunteers in 1781 to ride with Revolutionary Brig-Gen. Francis Marion in fighting the British. Marion takes the frontiersmen, and forms them into a force that becomes the pride of the Colonists’ southern campaign. (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.

“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.

“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 “Buck” Gowen names “Atlantic and Dorindas, daughters or Polly Sanders” as beneficiaries – leaving them a “deed of gift”. John “Buck” 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 “Buck” 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.

From Gowen Manuscript:  http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~gowenrf/Gowenms100.htm

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.”
