Thomas Goin b. 1750/55 Info:  

1838 – Thomas Goin dies in Claiborne County, TN

Appearing in Grainger County records between 1799 and 1834 were: Alexander Gowin, Jeremiah Gowin, Henry Gowin, Riley Gowin, Carson Gowin, Levi Gowin, Nathan Gowin, Preston Gowin, Pryor L. Gowin, William Gowin and Thomas Gowin.

In 1788, Thomas Goin sold his land in Greene County and moved westward to newly created Hawkins County, Tennessee from which Claiborne would be created in 1801. Thomas Goin didn’t come to Claiborne County; the county came to him. He appeared there as a taxpayer, along with his sons, Levi Goin and Uriah Goin on Big Barren Creek in 1799 in “Capt. Coxes company.” The postoffice of Goin, Tennessee would be named for this pioneer’s family in 1884. Goin still exists today, but the postoffice was discontinued in 1965.

In 1802, Thomas Goin and his sons helped to build the road to Tazewell, Tennessee, and were appointed its overseers.

On Saturday, November 1, 1803, Thomas Goin was instrumental in establishing the Big Barren Primitive Baptist Church.

Thomas Going” was recorded as No. 3 on the church roster of the men. No. 3 on the women’s roster was “Elizabeth Going,” possibly the wife of Thomas Goin.

1829 Jeremiah R Goan was married February 28, 1829 to Levenia Renfro, according to “Grainger County, Tennessee Marriages, 1796-1850.” Children born to Jeremiah R. Goin and Levenia Renfro Goin are unknown. https://www.ancestry.com/interactive/1169/VRMUSATN1780_041261-01317?pid=2244913&backurl=https://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?indiv%3D1%26dbid%3D1169%26h%3D2244913%26tid%3D69705632%26pid%3D34516710202%26usePUB%3Dtrue%26_phsrc%3DZPE341%26_phstart%3DsuccessSource&treeid=69705632&personid=34516710202&hintid=&usePUB=true&_phsrc=ZPE341&_phstart=successSource&usePUBJs=true#?imageId=VRMUSATN1780_041261-01316

1833 – Thomas Goin served on Claiborne County jury panels and in 1833 was listed as a “white male” taxpayer.

Thomas Goin died in 1838, according to Big Barren Primitive Baptist Church Record Book 2, and was buried in Old Big Barren Church Cemetery which adjoined the church. The site is now at the bottom of Norris Lake, and it is unknown if the graves were moved before the lake was created. His will was recorded in the Claiborne County courthouse.

Fifteen years after his death, his descendants were tormented in the community by accusations that they were descended from “niggers and mulattos.” The family had distinct Melungeon features, but attributed the mixed-blood characteristics to Indian and/or Portuguese ancestry.
For a detailed account of this incident, see Record # 117 in this data base for James Smith Falkner (family notes).

Thomas ‘marker was proudly placed by Todd Williams of the General Joseph Martin S.A.R. Chapter. A memorial service honoring Thomas was held in the cemetery on October 15, 2009. Hosted by Marsha Bratton, Regent, Middlesboro Chapter D.A.R. & Todd, both of Middlesboro, KY.

The following should be noted which was received from Thomas’ descendant, Betty George:

“Old Big Barren Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery, Book 2, Page 4 listing #3 Thomas Goin 1755-1838, buried in the Church cemetery.”

The Old Big Barren Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery was covered by water in 1935 after the completion of Norris Dam & the formation of Norris Lake. Records have never been found verifying if Thomas’ remains were relocated by the T.V.A. or if he was left behind.
