Goins Albemarle and Louisa Counties, VA
In my continued diligence of pursing the GOINS/GOING family in Albemarle and Louisa Counties, I wrote the Louisa Historical Society and they sent this reply :
"The references in Vol 11 are from abstracts of a law order records
Vol 26- from an article "Last Will & Testament of Michael Ailstock"
Michael Jr. was head of a household of four free"blacks" in the Commonwealth Census of 1782 for Louisa, which counted women and children. In 1799 he made surety in Albemarle for Jenny and Becky Ailstock, which young ladies married the Going brothers, Jesse and James respectively, in December of that year. As no other father is named on the record, the best guess is that these were daughters of Michael Jr. born before 1782.
Vol 26, p 48 "Michaael sold his farm (which was an economically marginal operation) to Moses Goings.
I did not check the other references."
Again the Michael I know is in the 1828 Order Book for Albemarle County.
I visited Louisa County's web site and found the following:
Goin, Agnes --- Legal Note 11/2/32 11/2/33 11/2/34
I can't make head nor tales of any of this information because I am not on the ground in Virginia.
