I live in Texas, I'll give you what I know about my family.

My name is John D. Goyen. I currently live in Dallas. I have 2 sons - Blake, Garrett (also Goyens). Wife is Laurie (maiden name Antwiler).

I have a brother Randle Hudson Goyen (39), he also has 2 children.

My father is John R. Goyen (60), born and still lives in Houston. My brother and I are his only children. My father has one brother William Goyen living in Idaho, and 3 sisters (Kathy, Marie, and Caroll).

His father (my grandfather) is John Goyen and he also is in Houston (90). He has one brother named Courtney Goyen (lives in Calif I believe, but not sure).

His father was a William Leslie Goyen (my great grandfather).

My grandfather (John Goyen) is cousins with William Goyen (the author). But apparently (according to my grandmother) there were two families of Goyens in Houston, one was Baptist, and one was Methodist, but both were related to eachother.

I haven't done much research beyond that, that I remember. Just what I remember off the top of my head.
