Goins Albemarle and Louisa Counties, VA

In my continued diligence searching (from quite a distance) for the GOINS/GOING connection in and between Albemarle and Louisa Counties in VA, I wrote the Louisa County Historical Society to ask about Agnes of Louisa who has been suggested to be Michael of Albemarle's grandmother. I believe I found this on the Louisa Historical Society page:

Goin, Agnes --- Legal Note 11/2/32 11/2/33 11/2/34
Goin, Amis --- Legal Note 11/1/42 11/1/44
Going, Becky Ailstock --- V26:43
Going, James --- V26:43
Going, Jenny --- V26:43
Going, Jesse --- V26:43
Going, Moses --- V22:14
Going, Moses --- Census 5/1/20
Going, Sherwood --- Rev. Soldier 8/32
Goings, Moses --- V26:48

I received this reply from the Louisa Historical Society:

"The references in Vol 11 are from abstracts of a law order records

Vol 26- from an article "Last Will & Testament of Michael Ailstock"

Michael Jr. was head of a household of four free"blacks" in the Commonwealth Census of 1782 for Louisa, which counted women and children. In 1799 he made surety in Albemarle for Jenny and Becky Ailstock, which young ladies married the Going brothers, Jesse and James respectively, in December of that year. As no other father is named on the record, the best guess is that these were daughters of Michael Jr. born before 1782.

Vol 26, p 48 "Michael sold his farm (which was an economically marginal operation) to Moses Goings."

Where to go with this information I don't know? There looks like some sort of connection.
