Tracing the Goins, Goings, Gowans and other spellings does get complicated - you have probably looked at the data that Paul has posted on http://www.freeafricanamericans.com/
What was the outcome of the Mayhew application - accepted or rejected?
Where did your Goins eventually wind up? There are at least 4 people here researching various branches - though not sure all are related - some seem to be from VA - but of course borders were fluid and FPOC moved around quite a bit.
I was joking with Irita just the other day that we perhaps need a Goins board - but you may want to think about starting a mailing list.
