Henry Goings, regarded as the son of Michael Goings of Shenandoah County by Annette Miner, a descendant of Pharr, Texas, was born about 1769. He may have been a son of Michael Going who was listed in the 1785 tax list of Shenandoah County, according to Annette Miner.

Henry Goings was married July 19, 1792 to Lucy Blackwell, ac­cording to “Shenandoah County, Virginia Marriages, 1704-1850.” In 1795 they lived in Hardy County, Virginia.

Henry Goings, “free colored” was listed as a taxpayer in the 1810 tax list of Hardy County, according to “A Supplement to the 1810 Census of Virginia” by Netti Schreiner‑Yantis. He paid a poll tax and a tax on two horses. Since Henry Go­ings was sometimes listed as “free colored” and sometimes “white,” it is believed that he was a Mulungeon.
