Fifty-four men vol­unteered, according to the petition:
“Prince William Parish

To the Hon’ble Council of Safety
Charles Town
Gentlemen:
We whose names are underwritten; having formed our-selves into a Company of Volunteers, either to act as Horsemen or Footmen, in defence of our Liberties & Country, who so loudly calls upon us for so doing; do with due submission–Petition the Hon’ble, the Council of Safety, to grant unto us Commissions for our Officers, which we have chosen by a Majority of Votes, Vizt: Darius Dalton, Capt; Charles Browne, First Lieut; Joseph Alanager, Second Lieut; & James Gowen, Third Lieut, under the names of the ‘Swift & Bold,’ for which we shall be thankful.

Several Keating individuals appeared in the records of the Charleston-Combahee Ferry area during that period. “Alexander Broughton, 2nd son of Capt. Nathaniel Broughton, was married to Mary Jones Keating, widow of Maurice Keating,” according to “South Carolina Historical Magazine.” “Mr. Matthew Keating, a native of Ireland, 26 years of age, died on Saturday last after a short illness,” according to a report in a Charleston newspaper published “Wednesday, August 26, 1807.” Prince William Parish, SC.

This suggests that a mix of Going brothers and cousins moved from Orange County, North Carolina to Fairfield County, South Carolina by 1776.

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.
