  1. Hi, I am looking for more information on Thomas Going. He purchased land from my ancestor, Nathan Godwin in 1828 in Randolph Co., NC. I was wondering if there were any relations or marriages between these two families. My Nathan Godwin sold your Thomas Goings 240 acres, however, Nathan had 20 acres left over and I'm trying to figure out what happened to those other 20 acres. Let me know if you would like a copy of the deed. Genealogy by Ginger's Blog
