Re: Goins' in Virginia ( West Virginia)

It has been my experience when looking at census records before 1870 that if the line regarding race was left blank it meant white. They only made a notation if the person was non-white such as M or B. The AA surname Goins has a long history of being free. I have noticed this in my research and hoped someone with the Goins surname would become aware of this...
