Loudoun County, VA-Goings
Good evening, is anyone else researching Loudoun County? My 5th great grandfather is supposedly Luke Goings. I am finding several documents about him or his son Jason. In an Index book of the Land Deeds book 2A-2M, page 65. I found a reference to Jason Goings -paying $$ to buy/free from Mary West of Loudoun, a slave woman Ann and her children: James, Harriet, Sophia, Joel, Wily, George & Fanny as well as Negroes Hannah and Fanny. It was a DoE-Deed of Emancipation 14 Sept 1801 & 9 Aug 1803. (Bulk:Pg: 2C;452), I am trying to understand him buying someone and their children, which to my knowledge they are not related, unless she is his woman and his children. Stumped.
