Re: Goens in Longtown Ohio
In Response To: Re: Goens in Longtown Ohio ()

============================================================
Sadie at a very young age marries a man with the last name of Goens, he was much older than herself. He was a widower and then married Sadie. Now this man had children when he married Sadie. Pearl must have been one of Daniel Goen's daughters, in which case Sadie's step-daughter. However, her and Sadie would not have been very far apart in age.
============================================================

+++
Daniel Webster GOENS was born 11-26-1844
Pearl (Pearlie) May GOENS was born 05-05-1872
Sarah "Sadie" BASS GOENS was born 10-19-1863

============================================================
My mom said Sadie had a daughter by Goens and her name was Nellie, whom my mom called "Aunt Nell." Aunt Nell wanted very badly for my mom and her sisters to know who they were related to. Aunt Nell was married to Thomas Metcalfe. I haven't been able to find anything on the Metcalfe's. This sounds like the same family. We didn't know what Sadie's maiden name was.
============================================================

+++
Sadie had at least two children by Daniel Webster GOENS, Alexander GOENS and Nellie Augusta GOENS. Nellie's marriage to Thomas Ross METCALF was her second marriage. She was previously married to Samuel WILSON.

Your mother has two aunts named Nellie. The above would be her grand aunt. She also has an aunt, Nellie MILTON, sister of Ernest MILTON.

============================================================
Pearl marries a man James Milton (Sr)my great grandfather. They have children but it seems that she died either in her 30's or 40. They have a son whom they named Ernest James Milton who marries Helen Daniels (Helen's first name we later find out is Meleta)He then remarries, but my mom did not know the 2nd wife's name.
============================================================

+++
Not clear here. Who remarries? James MILTON or Ernest MILTON or both?

============================================================
I have a picture of Pearl Mae(May)Goens who was my ggm not my gm. You can tell she was Mulatto. It appears that she rode horses because she has a riding habit on. We show that Pearl May Goens was actually born in New Paris Pike, Ohio. I think somehow, ended up in Darke County. Maybe through the marriage of Sadie Bass to her father.
============================================================

+++
Pearl (Pearlie) May GOENS was born 05-05-1872 in Seymour, Jackson County, Indiana. Evidently the James R. MILTON that was married to Mary A. MASON is the same James R. MILTON that was married to Pearl. He married Mary in Preble County, Ohio perhaps that is the Preble County connection.

============================================================
I am interested in knowing more about Daniel Goens. Who were his siblings and where did his parents migrate from?

I believe I sent a previous email. I would like to know who were Daniel Webster Goens parents & siblings and where did they come from. I may have sent a previous message simular to this request.
============================================================

+++
Daniel Webster GOENS was born 11-26-1844 in Indiana to George and Nancy DIXON GOENS. Probable siblings are: William, Alexander, Elizabeth, Asberry, Margaret, Minerva, E. Susan, and George. Both George and Nancy's birthplace can be found as Indiana, although once Nancy's is listed as Mississippi and family history says it is Virginia.
