William Goyens, a black man, who settled in
Nacogdoches, TX during Spanish rule was born in Moore Co, NC in 1794. He
was the son of William Goings, a free mulatto, and a white woman. He
came to TX in 1820. In 1832, he married Mary Pate Sibley, a white woman.
She had one son named Henry, but William and Mary had no children. A Dr.
Sibley was Pres. Thos. Jefferson's Indian Agent and confidant living in
Natchitoches, LA Perhaps there is a connection.

*************************************************************
GOYENS, WILLIAM (1794-1856). William Goyens (or Goings), early Nacogdoches settler and businessman, was born in Moore County, North Carolina, in 1794, the son of William Goings, a free mulatto, and a white woman. He came to Texas in 1820 and lived at Nacogdoches for the rest of his life. Although he could not write much beyond his signature, he was a good businessman. He was a blacksmith and wagonmaker and engaged in hauling freight from Natchitoches, Louisiana. On a trip to Louisiana in 1826, he was seized by William English, who sought to sell him into slavery.qv In return for his liberty, Goyens was induced to deliver to English his slave woman and to sign a note agreeing to peonage for himself, though reserving the right to trade on his own behalf. After his return to Nacogdoches, he successfully filed suit for annulment of these obligations.
During the Mexican Texasqv era, Goyens often served as conciliator in the settlement of lawsuits under the Mexican laws. He was appointed as agent to deal with the Cherokees, and on numerous occasions he negotiated treaties with the Comanches and other Indians, for he was trusted not only by them but also by the Mexicans and Anglo-Americans in East Texas. He also operated an inn in connection with his home near the site of what is now the courthouse in Nacogdoches. In 1832 he married Mary Pate Sibley, who was white. Sibley had one son, Henry Sibley, by a former marriage, but Goyens and Mary had no children.
During the Texas Revolution,qv Goyens was given the important task of keeping the Cherokees friendly with the Texans, and he was interpreter with Gen. Sam Houstonqv and his party in negotiating a treaty. After the revolution he purchased what was afterwards known as Goyens' Hill, four miles west of Nacogdoches. He built a large two-story mansion with a sawmill and gristmill west of his home on Moral Creek, where he and his wife lived until their deaths. During his later life Goyens amassed considerable wealth in real estate, despite constant efforts by his white neighbors to take away what he was accumulating. He always employed the best lawyers in Nacogdoches, including Thomas J. Rusk and Charles S. Taylor,qqv to defend him and was generally successful in his litigation. He died on June 20, 1856, soon after the death of his wife; they were both buried in a cemetery near the junction of Aylitos Creek with the Moral. At his grave a marker was erected by the Texas Centennialqv Commission in 1936. Many traditions grew up in Nacogdoches about this unusual man, and sometimes it is hard to tell just what is true and what is tradition.

Revolutionary War Pension of Levi Goines

Declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the acts of Congress for the benefit of Revolutionary Soldiers.

State of North Carolina
County of Moore


On this 26th day of April AD1852 personally appeared before the court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions held for the county and State of aforesaid, Levi Goines a resident of said County of Moore, and State of N.C. aged, about ninety years, who being first duly sworn according to Law, doth on his oath, make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit, of the provision made by the acts of Congress for Soldiers who served in the Revolutionary war. That he volunteered in Fairfield County, State of South Carolina, and agreed to serve until the end of the war, the time he entered the service he does not recollect, but believes it was about the time that the British took Charleston that he served as a private in a Company Commanded by Captain John Gray and was attached to a Regiment which was Commanded by Col. John Winn, and Gen. Richard Winn. He continues in actual service for about the time of twelve months though his recollection is not very distinct as to the time he served but he was honorably discharged as he believes, at the close of the sad Revolutionary War by his said Captain, having been marched back to said Fairfield County, which was also the residence of his Captain. He obtained no written discharge. He was engaged in a battle near the confluence of the Congaree and Santee Rivers. Gen. Lee he (note at bottom of page reads “He thinks two year, but is determined to be written bounds”) believes was the commander though his memory as to this is indistinct. Says the town surrendered here without much fighting. His services was entirely confined to the Sate of South Carolina, marching from Wyns borough to the Congaree Fort. And various other parts of said state under his officers. He recollects the names of many officers and soldiers with whom he served but does not know any regulars the following are some of them. Gen. Sumpter, Majr John Pearson, William W. Morey, James Steel, Joseph Kennedy, John Greggs, Liut Andrew Gray, & Saml Croslin (the latter was a regular). He knows of no person living, whose testimony he can procure who can testify to his service having removed from the state of South Carolina to North Carolina Moore County soon after the close of the Revolutionary War where he has resided ever since he has never been positive until recently that he was entitled to a Pension. Several years since a gentleman informed him that he was entitled to anything and made no further effort until now. He hereby relinquishes every claim whatever to a pension except the present and declares that his name is not on the pension roll of the agency of any state.
Sworn to and subscribed the day and year aforesaid in open court.

On this 19th day of February A.D. 1852 personally appeared before me a justice of the peace, within and for the County and the state aforesaid Duncan Murchison, who, being duly scorn according to Law, declares that he has been acquainted with Levi Goines for forth five years during which time he has resided in the County and state aforesaid. That when he came to this county he understood and believed that he came from the state of South Carolina. He is a man of good character where oath may be relied on, he is reputed to have been a soldier in the Revolutionary War while living in south Carolina of which there is no doubt.

The declaration of Levi Goines, a Revolutionary Soldier, with the proof of his services here unto annexed, is respectfully submitted for you consideration, it is believed that under the several acts of Congress he is entitled to a Pension for life from the 4th day of March 1831. To back pay since that time and to bounty lands having volunteered during the war and served as he believes until its close or until discharged by his officers which several claims he respectfully asks the department to allow him. He has no living nor documentary evidence of his services but has transmitted a correct statement under oath showing as near as frail memory will allow the time place and manner of his services the officer under whom he served and with whom he was acquainted. He also produces the certificate of three of the most respectable and intelligent men in his county who establish beyond doubt his food character and general reputation as a soldier and I imagine there are but few of those Veterans who have been mercifully spared until this day that would swear falsely. This proof I trust will be sufficient to establish his claim. Time has so reduced the number of Veterans and of the witnesses of their services and sufferings that to require of them positive proof independently of their own statement would be to deprive them of the benefit of the act. An early investigation of this claim is respectfully solicited. If consistent with the regulations of the department, his humble condition in life and very feeble health require it. All of which is respectfully subscribed. My address is Carthage, N.C.

On the 28th day of June A.D. 1852 personally appeared before me a justice of the peace within and for the county and state aforesaid Gen W. D. Dawd who being duly sworn according to law declared that he is well acquainted with Levi Goines of said county and from his general character has no hesitation in saying that he is entitled to full credit upon his oath. That he has recently been requested to examine said Goines relation to his services as a soldier in the Revolutionary war. That he has examined and conversed with him on that subject at various times and with great particularity and has no doubt that said Goines volunteered in the state of So. Carolina for and during the war and continued in actual service in the Revolutionary war for nearly or quite two years. That he inquired of said Goines when he entered the service. Said he could not tell but it was about the time the British took Charleston that he inquired what was his age now, he said he was ninety years this month. That he discovered he discovered he must have been under twenty one years when Charleston was surrendered to the British, that without making a single interaction to said Goines of that fact (nor can he read a word of history) that he inquired how old he was when he volunteered, to which he replied that he was about nineteen years old, that he then referred to the history of the revolution and found that the time Charleston was surrendered (12th May 1780). Said Goines was about nineteen. That he then inquired what general officers he knew. He said Green, Sumpter, Wynn, Lee. That he then inquired what battles he was in. He said he was in but one which was at the Cangaree fort. That he again referred to the history and finds that this fort was called Moltes near the confluence of the Congaree & Santee Rivers. Gen Lee was dispatched to this place. That from these facts together with many other incidents of said war related by said Goines. The conclusion was irresistible that said Goines is one of these Veterans who stood up for his country in the hour of danger and has never yet received a pension. That said Goines with his aged companion are living alone in a very humble condition in life barely able to afford themselves the comforts which their advanced age require. That it is in the universal opinion of all who conversed with him that he was a faithful soldier in the Revolutionary war.

By reference to history I find that the battle of Kings Mountain was fought 7th October 1780 after which Lord Cornwallis left Charlotte and fell back to Winnsboro: the very place and years that Mr. Goines mentions in his declaration

Dear Sir.
Some months since I presented (through Gen Dockery) to the department the declaration of Levi Goines a soldier in the war of the Revolution asking to be allowed a pension for his services in said war. I stated in my letter that the advanced age and feeble health of the old Veteran presents strong claims to the department for an early investigation. I have waited with great patience and as yet the department has not seen fit to address me on the subject. If there is any informality in the declaration or any lack of testimony that prevents the claim being allowed will the department please to inform me or if it has not yet been investigated or has been allowed and no information given. I ask respectfully to be informed thereof.
Very Respectfully

Miscellaneous Ancient Records of Moore Co, N.C. by Rassie E. Wicker
Goings (Goins)
pages 117-118, 177, 186, 190-191, 194, 207-208, 210, 213, 215-216, 226, 229, 307, 317, 461

Note****These are not complete transcriptions and some notes have been added by Cindy Young where indicated.

117
The 1790 census lists only two Goings families in the state; both in Moore county. Both families were headed by William Goings, but one family was white, while the other is entered along with the Lockileers, Oxendines and others of the Robeson county Indians. That these two entries are not mere duplicates is proven by the fact that the white William Goings was later made a Justice of the Peace. What became of this family, the writer has been unable to determine.
118
Mr. Wicker mades a notation that if you spell the name Goings as Goyen, you would have a name in common in Spain and Portugal. He was referring to the early days of Carolina, and how before the English took over in 1763, the Spanish were colonizing thinly in Florida, but were traveling up and down the coast, with some of them being left in Cape Fear because of insurbordination or outright desertion.
177
This is a page from the 1850 census
William Goins listed age 27, living with the John Morris family
186

207-208

William Goings age 13 living with Peter Sinclair family
Richard Goings age 17 living with the Margaret Berryman family
There is a note by the writer at the bottom -
"Lee County. The Berryman families originally lived along Big Pocket creek, between county highways Nos. 1300 and 1303....."
210
1850 census
My note: Family listed as Mulatto - this could mean that they are mixed white and Native America or black and white........If you look at the Wikipedia definition, there is a lot of reference to Latin American countries and it refers to Portugese....so Mr. Wicker's above notes about the Goings possibly being connected to Portugal could be a real clue if your family falls in that line.

Margaret Goings age 19 living with Neill Tyson
307
1790 census
William Goings 10 other free persons (my guess is this is the mulatto line)

William Goings 1 free white male of 16 yrs or older
4 free white males under 16
5 free white females including head of families

317
Goings - By strange coincidence, there were two Goings families in Moore in 1790, one being white; the other listed under the heading "all other free persons", that is free negro, mulatto, or Indian. Both families were headed by William Goings. One William, of course white, one was later made a justice of the peace for the county. Within the writer's recollection, some of these families held themselves above association with negroes, and their white neighbors accepted them as several notches above their black brethern. An examination of the 1850 census will show the increase in this clan, all of whom are there listed as mulatto. Briefly, the Goingses were classed exactly as were the so-called Lumbee Indians, of Robeson county. In later years, certain of these families intermarried with negroes, and their descendants now living in Moore are as black as the pot. Others however, have maintained the complexion and characteristics of their more ancient ancestors. The free family lived on or about Pocket Creek, in Lee county, or between there and Lemon Springs. The writer's father once pointed out to him, their location and casually remarked, "they were not negroes, but probably Indians." What became of the white family of William Goings, the writer has been unable to determine. A few years ago, a writer in the Saturday Evening Post wrote a story of the "Malungens" (maybe from the french "melange", a mixture) who had a colony on the Clinch River in North Central Tennessee, and among whose members were Goingses. The description of these poeple would apply almost to 100% of those of Robeson County. How did the Goingses get way up there?

  2. Above is a picture of Haywood Goings b abt 1848 in Moore County, NC sent in by Denise. Please read her message below and let us know if anybody has more information on what happened to Wiley Goings or if you know anymore information about Martha Goings.

    Martha married a Griffin and Haywood took on the name Griffin from that point forward. All his children were born Griffin.

    Please let me know if you can help Denise in anyway.

  3. I have a copy of the original document filed in the Randolph County, North Carolina Deed Book 47:136 (FHL microfilm no. 470241). It reads [header] "Daniel Goins' Genealogy. The following is the true genealogy of Daniel Goins & family. his great grand father was said to be a coloredman, his great grand mother Elisabeth [sic] Goins was white, his grand father Wm. Goins was mixt, his grand mother Patsy Petty was white, his father Sandy Murchison was white, his mother Leah Goins slitly mixt..."

    Margaret's portion reads as follows: "The following is the true genealogy of Margaret Goins & family. her great grand father Edward Goins slitly mixed about an eight, her grand mother Celia Cofer white, her father Wm. Goins verry slitly mixt, her mother Kisiah Sinclare white...."

    The clerk made an error when he recorded that Edward Goins was Margaret's "great-"grandfather. We know from another history given by Margaret's brother Edward that Edward was their grandfather, not great-grandfather. Also, there are lots of deeds that show that Edward Goins was married to Celia Cofer, who was the grandmother.

    Eli Wadsworth of Moore County, aged 66, testified. Andrew Cole of Moore County, aged 72, also testified. The document is dated 16 March 1882.

    The second go-round for Daniel Goins was recorded in Randolph County, North Carolina Deed Book 53:227 (FHL microfilm no. 470246). Again, the header is "Genealogy of Daniel Goins." Flora McDonald and Catharine McBryde of Cumberland County, aged 88 and 83 respectively, testified on 16 July 1884 that "they are acquainted with Daniel Goins late of the county and State aforesaid, that they know his Father, Grand Father, and Great Grand father, that his Great Grand Father (John Harmon) was a native of Portugal, and was always called a Portugan, and he was of the color of the natives of that place, and that he and his sons & grandsons always exercised the right of and passed as white men in every respect."

    So, how does John Harmon fit into Daniel's genealogy?? If we analyze the first document, then John Harmon is the great-grandfather "said to be a coloredman" who had a relationship with an Elizabeth Goins. It is believed that William Goins and Patsy Petty were the parents of both Leah (Daniel's mother) and Edward (Margaret's grandfather). Thus, Daniel and Margaret Goins were first cousins once removed.

  4. From The Gowen Research Foundation

    William Goins, [Edward6, Edward5, Edward, Jr.4, Edward3, William2, Mihil1] son of Edward Gowen was born about 1765, probably in Granville County. Children born to him include:



    William Goins born about 1785



    William Goins, [William7, Edward6, Edward5, Edward, Jr4, Edward3, William2, Mihil1] son of William Goins, was born about 1785. Children born to him include:



    Daniel Goins born about 1816



    Daniel Goins, [William8, William7, Edward6, Edward5, Ed­ward, Jr4, Edward3, William2, Mihil1] son of William Goins, was born about 1816. He was living in Randolph County, North Carolina at that time.



    Dr. Virginia Easley DeMarce in "Verry Slitly Mixed" sug­gests that Edward Gowen was the great-grandfather of Daniel Goins, born about 1816. Daniel Goins made an affidavit that he was "the son of William Goins, the grandson of William Goins and the great-grandson of Edward Goins who was "slitly mixed about an eight." as recorded in the "Randolph County, North Carolina Genealogical Journal," Winter 1980.









    Cheryl Allen, wrote in March 1993: "My ggg-grandfather, William Goins was born about 1814 in North Carolina and was married about 1835 to Kiza [Keziah?] Sinkler [St. Clair, Sinclair?]. I assume his parents were Edward Goins and Celia Cofer Goins.”



    Keziah “Kizzie” St. Clair was born about 1815 to Duncan Sinclair who was born January 1, 1782 in Scotland. John Sinclair, father of Duncan, emigrated to Moore County where the family was living in 1790, according to Karen Masterson. Duncan Sinclair was remarried about 1830 to Charity “Cherry” Phillips. They lived at Cedar Falls, North Carolina in Randolph County where Duncan Sinclair died June 27, 1856.



    Children born to Duncan Sinclair and Charity “Cherry” Phillips Sinclair include:



    Lydia Sinclair born about 1832

    Catherine Sinclair born about 1834

    Sibbarah “Sibby” Sinclair born about 1836

    Patsy Sinclair born about 1839

    Flora Sinclair born about 1841

    Duncan Sinclair, Jr. born about 1844

    Charles C. Sinclair born about 1847

    George Washington Sinclair born about 1851



    Dr. Virginia Easley DeMarce wrote:



    "In the matter of continued intermarriages with whites, see for example Eli Wadsworth's affidavit, 'Daniel Go-ins' Genealogy,' 21, stating that 'his grandfather, Will-iam Goins was mixt, his grandmother Patsey Petty was white . . . her great grand father Edward Goins ‘was slitly mixt about an eight[h] her grandmother Celia Co-fer white, her father William Goins verry slitly mixt, her mother Kisiah Sinclare white,'" according to the “Na-tional Genealogical Society Quarterly,” Volume 80, Number 1, March 1992. It contained the article by Dr. DeMarce entitled, "Verry Slitly Mixt': Tri-Racial Isolate Families of the Upper South--A Genealogical Study," page 27.”



    William Goins and Keziah “Kezzie” Sinclair Goins lived in Moore and adjoining Chatham County in the Pocket Creek area until after the Civil War. They removed to Indiana where Keziah “Kezzie” Sinclair Goins died. He then removed to Kansas.



    Children born to William Goins and Keziah Sinclair Goins in­clude:



    Richard Goins born about 1836

    Margaret Goins born about 1838

    Duncan Goins born about 1839

    Edward D. Goins born about 1840

    Reed Goins born about 1841

    Thomas Goins born about 1842

    Richard Goins born about 1844

    George Goins born about 1846

    Colon Goins born about 1848

    William Baxter Goins born about 1850

    Sally Goins born about 1852

    Alice Goins born about 1854

    Joseph Goins born about 1857

  5. Looking for information on the King David Goins' line for a reader. Specifically more information about his daughter Louvenia (believed to be Lovedy in the census records).

    Louvenia Goins married Simon McNeill Nov. 1, 1894 in Moore Co, NC and had two children by him named Carrie L McNeill and Bulah McNeill. Then later on married Robert Bruton and had two children, Corneila and Walter Bruton.

  6. I highly recommend anybody researching their Moore County families to visit this website:
    http://moorecountywallaces.com/histories/

    You can view the original documents and at least one has been transcribed. Here is a just a few of the records you can view with the Goins families (or similiar spellings) extracted.
