Look up: GOINS in Clark Co., Ohio.....
and or Beaver Co., Pennsylvania circa 1890 or 1900
I received an obit for James R. Goins who may be my great great uncle . The obit says that he was "59 years old and lived at 404 Main Street in Massillon, Ohio". It also says that he was married but doesn't mention his wife. On the other hand, it does list his daughter as Gertrude. It says it was "thirty-years" since he came to Massillon, Ohio from Rochester, Pennsylvania. The obit appeared 23 December, 1912.
I have been unable to locate him or his family in several Census schedules. These are the ones I looked through but came up empty:
Ohio Clark County 1890, M123-63
Pennsylvania Beaver County 1890, M123-90
Any help is greatly appreciated.
