John William Going was born in North Carolina about 1810 of parents unknown.  By 1837, he had removed to Copiah County.  "John Goen" was married there in May 1837 to Mary Caroline Smith, according to the research of Jim Bodine, Foundation member of Kaufman, Texas.  Their marriage bond was signed by Joseph Smith. 

 

"John Goen" appeared as the head of a household in the 1840 census of Copiah County.

 

Children born to John William Going and Mary Caroline Smith Going include:

 

          John William Going                                                    born in 1837

          James Going                                                                 born about 1838

          Thomas Going                                                              born about 1840

          Sallie Going                                                                  born about 1842

          George Going                                                                born about 1845

 

John William Going was born in Mississippi in 1837 to John William Going and Mary Caroline Smith Going, according to Robert T. Strong, Jr, a descendant of Madison, Alabama.  The research of Penny Goings Hughes shows that he was born in Copiah County in October 1839. 

 

Prior to 1866, he removed Shelby County.  In that year he was married there to Mary Frances Strong, daughter of Isham S. Strong and Susannah "Susan" Dunbar Strong.  She was born December 24, 1846 in Shelby County, according to "The Strong, Going, Dean, Campbell, Metcalf and Other Families in Shelby County, Texas" compiled in 1968 by Marjorie Going Johnson.

 

Isham S. Strong was born in Three Square Community in Goochland County, Virginia about 1802, according to the research of Robert T. Strong, Jr.  He lived in Sumner County and Davidson County, Tennessee from 1806 to 1837.  In 1839 he lived in Mississippi, and in 1840 was in Hempstead County, Arkansas.  He arrived in Shelby County shortly afterward.  He served in the Mexican War, according to Marjorie Going Johnson.

 

He was enumerated as the head of a household in the 1850 census of Shelby County:

 

          "Strong,               Isham                 48, born in Virginia

                                      Susan                  46, born in Tennessee

                                      Emily                  16, born in Tennessee

                                      Alexander            13, born in Tennessee

                                      Wiett                    11, born in Mississippi

                                      John                       7, born in Texas

                                      Mary                      4, born in Texas"

 

Isham S. Strong at age 61 enlisted as a substitute for Frank Tillman February 4, 1863 at Velasco, Texas as a private in Company E, Bates Regiment, Texas Volunteers.  Susannah "Susan" Dunbar Strong died in 1870 in Shelby County, according to Robert T. Strong, Jr.  Isham S. Strong then sold his property and made distribution to his children before moving in with the John William Going family.

 

John William Going was enumerated as the head of a household in the 1880 census of Shelby County, Enumeration District 89, page 17, precinct 3:

In 1900, John William Going reported to the census enumerator that he and his wife were the parents of 10 children, of whom nine were still living.

 

John William Going died April 5, 1901 in Nacogdoches County, Texas and was buried there in Cold Springs Cemetery.  No tombstone was erected at his grave, but he is buried near the grave of Oscar Scarborough, a son-in-law, according to Marjorie Going Johnson.  Mary Frances Strong Going lived with a son, George Going until her death November 20, 1910 in San Augustine County, Texas, according to Johnson research.  Robert T. Strong, Jr. reports that Mary Frances Going Strong was enumerated in the household of her daughter, Mary Josephine "Maude" Going Brown in the 1910 census of San Augustine County.  It is possible that she died there.  She was buried in Holly Springs Cemetery in Shelby County.
