Obit for Michael Goins circa 1880
I have been searching for my great great great grandfather for about six months. Today, I received an envelope with an obit which I strongly believe is him. It supports the Cenus records of 1850 for Muskingum County, Ohio and the 1870 and 1880 Cenus records of Belmont County, Ohio. He and his wife had fifteen children. He was born in Albermarle County, Virginia circa 1805 and moved to Ohio circa 1830.
