In Response To: Re: GOINS in Belmont & Muskingum Cos., OH ()
You probaby already have this info but Mary "Molly" GOINGS was the daughter of Jason GOINGS & Hannah FINDLAY. She married Meshach LETT then in a subsequent marriage, married Benjamin SIMPSON. Mary is the sister of Joel Westin GOINGS, first settler in the Rumley Settlement in Shelby County, Ohio. The GOINGS family was from the LETT Settlement on the Guernsey County/Muskingham County border. Most would move to Shelby County but some stayed near the LETT SETTLEMENT and/or Washington County, Ohio, Athens County, Ohio. Would you be so kind as to take it from Mary to you. Or at least list Mary's children by Meshach LETT. Evidently you are from LETT, however I don't have Mary having children by Meshach LETT, but several by Benjamin SIMPSON. However it could be that some of the children I have as SIMPSONs are actually LETTs but were listed in census records as SIMPSON (as enumerators were wont to do) or children from a previous marriage for Benjamin. Thank you.
