Pension Application of Sherard Going: W7545
Transcribed and annotated by C. Leon Harris

County of Albemarle Sct
On this 9 day of October 1828 personally appeared th in open court before the Judge of
the 8th Judicial Circuit of Virginia, Sherard Goin, resident in said County, aged seventy two years, who being first duly sworn, according to law, doth on his oath, make the following declaration, in order to obtain the provision made by the acts of Congress of the 18th March 1818, and 1st May 1820; That he the said Sherard Goin enlisted for the term of three years on or about the [blank] day of [blank] in the year 1777 or ‘78 in the State of Virginia, in the company commanded first by Captain Hawkins then by Captain John Overton in the 14th Regiment commanded by Col. Charles Lewis in the line of the State of Virginia on continental
establishment, that he continued to serve in said Corps until the expiration of three years when
he was discharged from the service in [blank] in the State of [blank] that he has lost his
discharge. That he hereby relinquishes all and every claim to a pension, except the present – that is name is not on the roll of any State, except Virginia; and that the following are the reasons for not making earlier application for a pension. Viz. he has been able by a course of industry and
economy to support himself and his family, and to obtain the necessaries of life, and has been
ignorant of the means of obtaining the provision made for him by his Government until recently
– but that his age and infirmities have now deprived him of his only reliance (that of his own
exertion) for subsistence and he now calls on that Country to aid him in his necessities in whose
service he devoted his youth. “And in pursuance of the act of 1st May 1820, I do solemnly swear
that I was a resident citizen of the United States on the 18th day of March 1818, and that I have
not since that time, by gift, sale, or in any manner, disposed of my property or any part thereof,
with intent thereby so to diminish it as to bring myself within the provisions of an act of
Congress, entitled “an act to provide for certain persons engaged in the land and naval service of
the United States in the Revolutionary War” – passed on the 18th of March 1818, and that I have not, nor has any person in trust for me, any property, or securities, contracts or debts due me, other than what is contained the schedule hereto annexed and by me subscribed, That no
material changes have taken place in the little property which I possess since the 18th March
1818, except that its value has greatly depreciated. The following is a schedule of my property of
every description, two indifferent horses, one 14 or 15 years & the other 4 or 5, a Small Poney,
about two hundred acres of land situated on one of the spurs of the Blue Ridge, and it is poor,
mountain land – not productive, about thirty or forty acres of this tract are cleared, one Cow, – I
am by occupation a day labourer – though I am disabled in a great measure by age from
pursuing this or any other business which would support me – I have a wife and two children.
Viz: two boys about the age 8 or 9 and 10 or 12 years – I was engaged at the Battle of
Germantown [4 Oct 1777] and Monmouth [28 June 1778] – and at the siege of York [ending 19
Oct 1781] – after the expiration of my first enlistment for three years, I enlisted again for
eighteen months – I am a colored man and [illegible word] illiterate & have lost my discharge and other papers Sherard hisXmark Going

NOTE: On 27 Nov 1841 Susannah Going, “formerly Susannah Simmons,” applied for a pension
stating that she married Sherard Going in Albemarle County about 1790, and he died 23 Nov
1837.

    Petition 21685609 Details
    Location: Albemarle, Virginia
    Salutation: To The Judge of the Circuit Court for the County of Albemarle (, )
    Filing Court and Date: Circuit, 1856-January-25
    Ending Court and Date: Circuit, 1856-May-20
    General Petition Information
    Abstract: Evelina Becket represents that DANIEL GOINGS, a free man of color, "removed from the County of Albemarle to the state of Virginia." She reports that "in the year 1845 ... he returned to Albemarle for the purpose of collecting money due him there for land and perhaps other property sold by him before his removal." Becket further laments that Goings "was taken suddenly ill and died on 21st of January 1846, having first made a nuncupative will," in which he directed his executor to "collect all money due said testator and [to] apply it ... to the support and maintenance of your Oratrix and her six children." Becket states that she and her minor children, who are "also children of the said Testator," still reside in Ohio. She charges that James E. Chapman, Goings's administrator, "has never settled any account or in any way appropriated any part of the estate to the benefit of your Oratrix and her children," even though "for several years past, he has been promising to settle up, but as yet he has wholly failed to do so." Becket prays that Chapman be forced to settle his accounts and "pay to your Oratrix and her children what may be found due them."
    Documents also mention the name of MICHAEL GOINGS.
    Result: partially dismissed
