Y-DNA Matches

YDNA Groups:  See:  Goins DNA Project at:   https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/goins/activity-feed

The following are different YDNA groups where those in the same groups have a common paternal ancestor.

Group (Y1)’s oldest “known” paternal ancestor is Shadrach Going b. abt 1725-34 – so if you match this group’s YDNA – you likely descend from Shadrach’s paternal line.

Group (Y2) all appear to descend from the same family – likely from Stafford County, Va group of Going/Gowen/Goins (etc) – with William Going b. abt 1680 apearing to be the most distant identified ancestor. (There were 3 other men known to be related to him either brothers and or father – John Going b. abt 1660-80, James Going b. abt. 1680s, and Thomas Going b. abt 1650 or after – we don’t know about children for Thomas, John or James, but with William Going there is a will which identifies sons John Going b. abt 1700 and Alexander  Going b. abt 1705 – and their children are identified in deed transactions and estates as well which has helped place this group’s descendants).

Group (Y3)’s oldest “known” paternal ancestor is William Gowen b. abt 1730 from Bedford County, Va. So if your YDNA matches this group – this is the paternal line you likely descend from.

Group (Y4)’s oldest known paternal ancestor is Daniel Goan b. abt 1753 who died in Jefferson Co, TN – if you match this group’s YDNA you likely descend from Daniel’s paternal line.

If you are interested in a YDNA test – it is for males only – as YDNA descends from father to son and does not change very much over time – so if you match another Goin/Gowen/Goyen (etc) in the US after taking the test, you will have a common paternal ancestor somewhere – which is helpful in some situations in trying to match records.

The best online service for YDNA testing in my opinion is Family Tree DNA if you are interested in testing.

Y-DNA grp (Y4): E-M2  (Henry Co, Va)(I believe this is the Levi Going/Goyen b. 1762 group out of Moore Co, NC … this group is difficult because of some affidavits filed in Fairfield Co, SC regarding land in Davidson Co, TN – they appear to show Levi is part of the (Y1) family. A few explanations could be Levi came from a line that had an adoption or other nonpaternal event, or they just assumed they were related due to the surname when the documents/affidavits were filled out. Or the easiest explanation is that there were two Levi Goings in the area at the same time – one from the Y1 group, and one from the Y5 group.

(NOTE: Since Y-DNA Group Y2 is my own group, I have done some further analysis of this group – I am able to do this because I have access to the trees of those who match me on FamilyTreeDNA – and also can use the TiP Tool to calculate how distant our furthest paternal ancestor likely is. I cannot do this analysis with those who do not match me (FamilyTreeDNA doesn’t let me see the trees of those who do not match, or to use their TiP tool for those who do not match).

If you belong to Y-DNA Group Y1 or some other group, feel free to use FamilyTreeDNA’s tools and pass along any information you would like added to this page – post a note at the bottom of the page or contact me at douggoyen@gmail.com). 

Y-DNA Group Y2 – Analysis: 

***(Y-DNA Group Y2) Analysis and Notes: (Notes on those who match the Y1 group) – The following are lines that appear to descend from the Stafford County, Virginia group of Gowing/Going men who appeared to be related to one another according to records. They were: Thomas Going b. abt 1650, John Going b. abt 1650-80, William Going b. abt 1680, and James Going b. abt 1680. (Note: from Doug Goyen regarding parents of William Going b. abt 1680 – I have been unable to confirm who the parents of William Gowing/Gowen were. There were 4 Gowing/Gowen men who were related to each other in the Stafford County, Virginia area – Thomas, John, William, and James – Thomas appears in the records of Westmoreland County, Virginia in the 1690’s so appears he may be the parent – but he may be a brother, cousin, uncle – it is not confirmed in any document. The following are notes on these 4 men in Stafford Co, Va area: 

1) Thomas Going – appears in records in 1671 in Talbot Co, MD, then in 1693 in Westmoreland Co, Va, then begins to show up in Stafford Co, Va in 1708. Thomas continues showing in lawsuits in Westmoreland Co, Va until 1711. Thomas has a final tithe record in 1728/29. A Thomas Going then shows in a 1743 land transaction – which may be him, or it may be a relative (son, nephew, etc). No records confirm who his wife or children were that I have been able to find. There are no records confirming his parents that have been located;
2) John Going – appears in records starting 1701 (militia) and dies in 1721 according to index to will book – but no records confirm who he was married to or who his children were, if any. There are no records confirming his parents that have been located;
3) William Going – appears in records starting 1701 (militia) and dies around 1726 according to the index. In 1726 a conveyance from his son Ambrose confirms William had a wife named Catherine and that William died intestate (no will). In 1739 Catherine “Padderson’s” will names children – “Alexander, John, and Susannah Going”. There are no records confirming his parents that have been located;
4) James Going – appears in records in Stafford County and then Fairfax County, Virginia from 1701 (militia) until 1769 (lawsuit with executors of Francis Awbrey dec’d) – it is unknown what James’ death date was, if he was married, or if he had any children). There are no records confirming his parents that have been located. 

NOTE: The following group of testers show as matches on my Y-DNA on FTDNA. I have included their tree info (when possible – a couple I guessed at based on info found online and “believe” I have their trees correct – let me know if I am wrong. I also included my personal TiP results from FTDNA for those who tested at 37 markers or higher – which shows the likelihood at each generation back that we had a common paternal ancestor at that generation.

I have bolded the generations back at 8-10 generation that would likely contain one of the brothers – William Going b. abt 1681, John Going b. abt 1680, James Going b. abt 1682, and their presumed father Thomas Going b. abt 1650-60 – as these are most likely the common paternal ancestors to most of the testers in this (Y1) group.

NOTE Summary of Results: There are 3 categories of test results shown below. 1) First category, Alexander Going b. abt 1705’s descendants are closest to mine, along with John Gowen b abt 1755 of Marion Co, SC, John Waller Goin b. 1804 of Hawkins Co, TN, James M Goins b. 1825 of Buckingham Co, Va, and Jordin Goins b. abt 1799 of Buckingham Co, Va. 2) Second category, Thomas Going b. 1718-22 and Thomas Goin b. 1755’s descendants mutations appear to be further away from my Y-DNA testing than other groups (see below TiP reports and percentages).  3) Third category, James Goyne b. 1755, Jesse Goin b. 1784, William Henry Gowen b. 1789, and Joseph Edward Goins Sr b. 1895 are closer than the Thomas Goin/Going groups in category 2, but not as close as the Alexander Going etc groups in category 1.

Interpretation of Summary: In review of categories 1 and 2 above and looking at the distance of Thomas Going Sr b. 1718-22 and Thomas Goin Jr b. 1755, it gives the appearance that Thomas Going Jr and Sr may not have descended from William Going b. 1681 as many researchers presume – since their mutations appear to be 2-3 generations ahead of other descendants of William Going b. 1681. They definitely appear to still descend from the same paternal ancestor, but their common paternal ancestor seems like it would be about 2 generations further back than those in category 1. This raises the possibility that Thomas Going Sr b. 1718-22 may have descended include James Going b. abt 1682 as a parent, or John Going b. abt 1680-d. 1721 as a parent. Thomas Going Sr. b. 1718 was living close to James Going b. abt 1680 before he left Virginia – in fact had a land transaction with an “Awbrey” that was living adjacent to James Going b. abt 1682, and who James Going b. abt 1682 subsequently sued the Awbrey estate in Fairfax County, Va in the 1750s according to the minutes there. 

The results are insufficient to determine whether those in category 3 descend through William Going b. abt 1681 – they are close enough that they may, but they are distant enough that they may also consider whether they may descend through James Going b. abt 1682 or John Going b. abt 1680.

NOTE: Just as a reminder, mutations can move up or down in number over time (or both go up and then back down). Because of this, this review is not based on a “scientific” review of the YDNA results. It is only based on matching groups and their distance.

The TiP comparisons below are only with those who had 37 marker tests or higher, as the 12 marker test doesn’t show much useful data when using the TiP tool on FTDNA. So those who took the test at 12 markers that match my YDNA only show the “steps” or mutations away from my own test at 12 markers – but do not include the generations/percentage or likelihood of a common paternal ancestor since the TiP tool at only 12 markers is not very useful.

His name was Troy Goins. This Ron Lee Goins was his brother. I never could get Troy to take the Y-DNA because he thought it was “big brother stuff”. Instead of him doing it he had his brother Ron do it. When Troy passed away I attached my email address to this account.
