GOENS Pearl & MILTON James • IN
I am looking for my great-grandmother (Pearl Mae Goens) “mother.” Her father was Daniel Webster Goens or it may be spelled Goins (I've seen it both ways). I do know that he marries a girl name Sadie Bass or Sarah, but this would have been my GGM step-mom. I am trying to find Pearl's biological mother, which would be my GGM.
Also, I am looking for my GGF (James R. Milton, born in Richmond, Indiana around 1870 or 71) parents. I can’t seem to find who they are, but census show his father was was born in North Carolina and his mother in Ohio, but do not have names for either.
If you can help with this I would really appreciate it. I am on a quest to see where my family originates from. I had been diagnosed with a skin disease (non-contagious) years ago and less than 1 percent of the US ever gets. The doctor gave me info on this and it appears it is documented mostly from somewhere in the Middle East. However, we have only known that we are African Americans (of course that means we are all mixed up with something).
If anyone can help me with this I would greatly appreciate it.
