I located this posting while doing research on Rebecca Randolph. Rebecca was married to DC Goings who was my grandfather's grandfather. You advised Mide that you had information to share on the Fox Randolph and Goings surnames. Can you pass this information on to me as well.
I have done extensive research trying to set the record straight for my family--I'm somewhat of a family historian since my mom passed away in 1996... The oldest daughter of the oldest daughter born to Joseph "Len" Leonard and Mary (Seach) Goings. Grandpa was the son of Joseph Wesley and Sarah (Bagley) Goings. Joseph W. was the son of Doktor "DC" Craig and Rebecca (Fox) Goings.
My grandfather was somewhat secretive about his family in Ohio and we are thinking that it was because he didn't want anyone to know what race he was... I'm finding that much of his generation (and even before) felt it necessary to hide who they were if they could for various reasons.
