States: Kentucky: Gallatin
Charles, I am decended from Moses Jackson (b. abt 1786 Shenandoah Co, VA d.1852 Cass Co, NE) and Charles Goins (b.1763 Henry Co, VA d. abt 1857 Gallatin Co, KY). Most my info regards their life post 1840, though I have read of their migration to Kentucky from other sources. Census records list George Jackson (son of Moses) in Gallatin County for the years 1820, 1840, and 1850. Charles Goins in the 1820 to 1850. Charles migrated from Henry Co, VA to Clairborn Co, TN, then to Harrison Co, KY, before settling in Gallatin County. Related families I know of include the Jacksons, Furnish, Bales, Swango, Kidwell, and Rose families. James Blair Goins (Goens, Gowens), son of Charles, married Maryan Jackson (daughter of Moses Jackson) 14 Sep 1835 in Warsaw. Their daughter Elizabeth Ellen Gowens is my third great grandmother. I don't have much prior to 1840, but have copies of pension records, wills, land records, etc if you wished to exchange info. Definately would like to do more research in Virginia where both families originate. Greg
