“Walnut Grove, Etowah County, Ala.  March 16, 1879 Dear Brother, By the Divine Providence of God, I am again permitted to write to you in answer of yours and also to send your request. We are today enjoying common health and also Dabbs and Inman are well as far as I know. We have had a very cold, wet winter with heavy freezes, but little snow. Gentle spring has come in with mild and pleasant weather.
The farmers are busy engaged in preparing for another crop. There will be more guano used this year than has been any year previous. According to your request, I with pleasure send you a true list of ages as recorded in Father’s Bible.
I will begin with father and mother’s. Isaac Going was born 28th day of April, 1775. Mother, Rebecca Palmer was born 1st day of February 1789 and was married the 21st day of August 1804. Father was baptized in the May meeting of the Pacolet Church in 1803, and also the same year joined the Masonic fraternity. The death of Father and Mother stands recorded thus—- Rebecca Going departed this life the first day of August 1855,  aged 66 years and 6 months. Isaac Going departed this life the 27th day of January 1861, aged 85 years and 9 months and one day.
Our Grandfather, Drury Going departed this life the 22nd day of February 1796 in the 47th year of his age. He died on the road coming home from Charleston with his wagon and team. He lacked 3 days drive of reaching home when he died. He was hauled home and buried at home. Grandmother Sarah Going departed this life 22nd day of April 1820 in the 69th year of her age.
In looking over I find the date of Elisha P. Going’s death as 16th day of July 1864 by a cannon ball near Fussels Mill in the New Market fight, Henry County, Va. Now, dear brother, you can record the dates I have given you in your large family Bible so that your children and grandchildren may hand down their fore father’s posterity. The Going is of Irish, [and Palmer] on Mother’s side English and Dutch.
I was pleased to hear of the well doing of your children. I have not heard a word about Eva. Is she dead? Eunice sent her likeness to her. Eunice says she would like to enjoy Eva’s company again. I am getting old and feeble near 73 years old. I have not had good health since last July. When I feel able, I go out and work a little. I feel better with exercise. I gain, but the least cold throws me back.
I am what is called a Licentiate Preacher. I don’t go about much, but if it is the Lord’s will, when the weather becomes warm I wish to visit the churches around. Religion is at a very low ebb at this time owing to so many divisions of profession–three kinds of Baptists, Missionary, Primitive or commonly called Hard Shells. Two years ago they divided and called it The Church of Christ being wonderfully opposed to all benevolent institutions of the day, especially the Masonic fraternity and Sabbath Schools. Their chief doctrine is that of Election and reprobation and non-fellowship with all who do not coincide with their Views. There are two kinds of Methodists–North and South. They divided during the war– they have no fellowship with each other. Then there are the Seventh Day Adventists and Soul Sleeping Baptists. I could not give a full history of their doctrines in the space I have to write. They make proselytes owing to the unlearned and unread of many of the people.
I hope you and all the boys that have grown up have made to rejoice in Jesus Christ the Savior. Let us pray for each other as all are dead of father’s family that if we never meet again, we will try to meet together with our friends in Heaven. Farewell, Thomas B. Going to W.G.W. Going and children”

1. Drury Going – 1 b. 1725-1733:  The earliest Drury Going known is the one born around 1725-1733.  He is identified by Brunswick County Court order of April 3, 1740 in which it was “ordered that Elsoner Going and Drury Going, sons to Mary Gowing be bound as the law directs to Ralph Jackson until they shall arrive to the age of twenty-one years,” according to Order Book 1, page 302.   As orphans, their father is dead, and Ralph Jackson appears to have been appointed as their guardian and caretaker.

Other Going children bound to Ralph Jackson are Elsoner in same day as Drury.   John Going and Thomas Going, were also bound to Ralph Jackson on July 5, 1736, according to Order Book 1, page 254.

A Going child named Cave Gowen, a seven-year-old boy who was bound to James Vaughan by the 6 June 1734 Brunswick County court.  And a sixth Going child, William Gowen, an orphan, age 10, was bound as servant and aprentice to John Straughan noted in Truro Parish, Va in Oct 26, 1737. http://www.pohick.org/vestrybook.html (p. 19-20).

Drury birth dates could be as early as 1720 and as late as 1736 dates of birth.  Likely, since his mother Mary was alive, the mother had some input of when the children needed to start their apprenticeship and waited until her children were somewhere between the ages of 7-15 to bind out.  So likely Drury’s birthdate is somewhere between 1725-1733.

Drury is too young to be John Going b. 1680’s son – because John Going died in 1721.  William Going b. 1682 died in 1725, so the age is right, but the court order says his mother is Mary, and William Going’s wife was Catherine – shown in her will and probate paperwork, and in land transactions.

The final known brother from the Fairfax/Stafford area was James Going b. 1683.  There is no notation when he died, but the last known entry for him on any documents is around 1730-1731 in the Stafford County, Va. area that later becomes Fairfax.  A 1731 deposition of Benjamin Sebastian places James Going and John Straughan as neighbors in Stafford County, Virginia http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=mrmarsha&id=I020445.  If James died shortly after this, then Mary may have been James’ wife, and these may have been his orphaned children.  Since 10 year old William Gowen was bound as an apprentice to James Going’s neighbor, John Straughan, in Stafford County by Truro Parish’ vestry, this supports the orphan William as a child of James.  The rest of the Going family moved down to the Brunswick Co., Va. area, and it appears the remaining children of James were likewise bound out for apprenticeships when they reached an appropriate time or age.

2. Drury Goyen – 2 born 1749:   Drury Goyen of Chester Co, SC was born in 1749.  His information is documented on this website at the following link:  https://goyengoinggowengoyneandgone.com/1749-drury-going-goyen/ .  His likely parents are John Gowing Sr b. 1710 and Mary Keith Gowing.    Based on this, Drury Going b. 1725-33 would be his great uncle (uncle of his father John Gowing, Sr.).

3 & 4. Drury Going (or Goyne) – born abt 1766:  This Drury Going may be two different people, but appears they could be the same person possibly.  The Drury Goyne listed #3 below disappears from Greensville Co, Va in 1801.   His tithe records place his date of birth about 1766 – the same as Drury Goyne in Georgia.  After Drury Going in Greensville Co, Va no longer shows up in records in Greensville Co, Va, then Drury Goyne begins showing up in records in Georgia close to his father, William Goyne (b. 1732).  Drury is identified as William Goyne’s son in William Goyne’s will in 1816 in Georgia (see William Goyne’s page on this site:    https://goyengoinggowengoyneandgone.com/1733-william-goyne/ ).   It is possible these are two different Drury Going / Goyne’s, but because the birth dates are so close, and the timing of the disappearance from Greensville Co, Va., and then subsequent appearance in Wilkes County, Ga., it appears this may be the same person.
