Re: Goins Albemarle and Louisa Counties, VA
In Response To: Goins Albemarle and Louisa Counties, VA ()
As I said in my last message I don't know where to go with this information? There looks like there is some sort of connection. The Michael GOIN/GOINGS I am looking for has an "A" as a middlename. I am really guessing when I say that the middlename could have been Ailstock? It looks like the GOINS/GOING family and the Ailstocks of Louisa County family became united through marriage and moved to Albemarle County as the wives Rebbecca (Betsy) and Jenny and their husbands show up later in records for Albemarle.
The eldest man from this record and from the Ailstocks of Louisa was Michael. He was the grandfather of Betsy and Jenny Ailstock. There was a Michael, Jr. and so I am guessing they wanted to keep the name going in the family? Could Michael GOINS/GOING possibly received his name from the first Michael Ailstock? It is all just a guess?
