Sarah Hart-Goens/Goings/Goins, who are your parent
Looking for the parents of Sarah Hart Goens marriage record for her. She was born somewhere in Virginia in 1810. She was married to Lawson Goens/Goings/Goins, who was born in Loudoun Co. Virginia in 1807. They show up in the 1850 & 1860 census, etc. They lived and raised their family in Jefferson County, VA/WV. Lawson dies in 1874, in Clarke Co. VA, Sarah Hart dies in 1886 in either Jefferson or Clarke, so far no death record has been located for her. After Lawson died, Sarah moved in with her daughter (Nancy Johnson) who had been married and they show up in the 1880 census in Jefferson County. I have a picture of her headstone. Any help is appreciated.
