Re: GOINS in Belmont & Muskingum Cos., OH

I stand corrected again! This is the info I found on Hannah Goins. She would have been the grand daughter of James and Chance Findley and the daughter of Jason Goins. Connie
Pictured here is Mary Ann Male nee Hill the grandaughter of Hannah Goins nee Findley. Hannah Findley, brought a successful suit for her freedom in Henry County Court in August 1788. She testified that she was the granddaughter of two Choctaw Indians, James and Chance, who were brought home by Henry Clay, an Indian trader, from a trip beyond the Carolinas to present day Chesterfield County in 1712. Her claim was supported by several residents of Chesterfield County. A Chesterfield County deposition taken in 1772 names the descendants of James and Chance by first name only: Ned, Lucy, Silvia, Bristol, Chance, Ned, Frank, Peter, Sam, Rachell and her children [Fender vs. Marr, Henry County Virginia. Loose papers, Determined Cases 1788-1789, folder 66, LVA, published in the Virginia.
