MAURY COUNTY, TENNESSEE

 

Andrew Gowan was married to Lucy Elliott August 2, 1811, according to "Maury County, Tennessee Marriages, 1807-1850."  He was listed on the tax rolls of Maury County in 1813 and 1814.

 

"Pvt. Andrew Goins" was enlisted in Capt. Andrew Patterson's Company of Tennessee militia and died January 30, 1815, perhaps following the Battle of New Orleans.

 

"Lucy Goins, widow of Andrew Goins" was entitled to a "half-pay pension," according to "Widows and Orphans of the War of 1812."  If a soldier died in the war or died after the war as a result of his wounds, his widow and orphans were entitled to a pension at one-half of the deceased soldier's pay.  Beneficiaries remained on the pension rolls for five years.  The pension ceased if the widow remarried during that period.

 

The estate of "Andrew Goan" was administered by Nathaniel Sims in 1815, according to Maury County Will Book A1, page 182. 

 

On September 6, 1829, William Stratton, "guardian of the heirs of Andrew Gowen," made a report of their schooling, ac­cording to "Maury County, Tennessee Cousins."

 

Children born to Andrew Gowan and Lucy Elliott Gowan are regarded as:

 

Isaac Mathis Goins born in 1811

Levi Goins born about 1813

 

Isaac Mathis Goins, regarded as a son of Andrew Gowan and Lucy Elliott Gowan, was born in Tennessee in 1811.  Professionally he became a shoemaker.  In 1839 he lived in Maury County.  Isaac Mathis Goins was married to Mary Lucy "Polly" Adkison July 29, 1841, according to "Maury County, Tennessee Marriages, 1807-1850."  She was born in 1816 in Maury County to Jordan Adkison and Mary Charity Ezell Adkison.

 

By 1850 they had removed to adjoining Hickman County.

 

Isaac Mathis Goins was enumerated as the head of Household 712-100 in the 1850 census of Hickman County:

 

"Goins, Isaac 39, born in Tennessee, shoemaker

Mary 34, born in Tennessee

Jordon 10, born in Tennessee

John   7, born in Tennessee

Ellen   6, born in Tennessee

Lewis   4, born in Tennessee

Isaac   2, born in Tennessee"

 

Isaac Mathis Goins and Mary Lucy “Polly” Adkison Goins joined her siblings to selling their interest in inherited land in Maury County, according to Audie Adkison who submitted the following Maury County deed dated September 29, 1853:

 

"We, John Adkison, Steven Elliot and Sarah Elliot his wife, W. A. Cauthen and Elizabeth Cauthen, his wife, Issac M. Goins and Mary Goins, his wife, have this day bargained and sold and do hereby transfer and convey to William Adkison a tract of land on which he now re-sides for and in consideration of seventy nine dollars to them paid, a tract of land in the State of Tennessee, Maury County and District number one containing by estimation seventy nine acres and ninety-nine poles be the same more or less . . . . .

 

Witnesses:          T. R. Allen

James Ezell

Robert Stevens”

 

Audie Adkison wrote May 29, 2002:

 

“William Adkison [born in 1812], John Adkison [born in 1814], Mary Lucy “Polly” Adkison [born in 1816], and Elizabeth Adkison [born in 1819] are the Tennes-see-born children of Jordan Adkison and Mary Charity Ezell Adkison.  This appears to be a case of an older brother buying out the interest of his brothers and sis-ters in inherited land. 

 

If this is the case, then what is Sarah's claim?  I have found no reference to her as a daughter, though she could be a child of a previous marriage of either Char-ity or Jordan.  Jordan did have a previous marriage to Martha Robison in Bertie County, North Carolina and possibly at least two children there. 

 

But where did the land come from?  I suspect that it came from Charity's side, though I have no concrete evidence.  I don't know who James Ezell is, but he also earlier sold land to William Adkison.  All of that leaves me with questions I have not been able to answer.  The connection between Sarah and Charity must be strong, since Charity chose to spend her declining years with Sarah and Steven Elliott [assuming she had a choice.]”

 

"Isaac M. Goin," was a justice of the peace in Hickman County in 1853 and 1854, according to "History of Hickman County, Tennessee."
