I am looking for the parents of Jesse Franklin Goins that was born around May 5, 1849 in North Carolina and died June 25, 1907 in Surry County, North Carolina.
He married Mary Elizabeth Smith(1850 Long Branch, Franklin Co.,VA-Aug 1,1925,Big Creek, Stokes Co., NC), daughter of Creed Smith and Mary Elizabeth Radford, around 1869 in Franklin, Virginia.
They lived in Franklin County,Virginia and Patrick County, Virginia until the 1900's when they moved to Surry County, North Carolina(Mount Airy area).
They had at least 7 children-
Mary Jane(Feb 7, 1872, Patrick Co. VA-March 7, 1958 Mount Airy, Surry Co., NC, married Henry Wilson)
Joanna(Feb 2, 1874, Patrick Co. VA-Sept 10, 1959, Mount Airy, Surry Co., NC, married Andrew Wilson)
Jathina(May 2, 1876, Patrick Co. VA-Jan 23, 1954, Boone, Watauga Co., NC, married a Beasley)
Robert Franklin(Feb 22, 1878, Patrick Co. VA-Feb 16-1955, Surry Co., NC, married Laura Bertha Goins)
John Abraham(Feb 17, 1883, Patrick Co., VA-Jan. 10-1947, Greensboro, Guilford Co., NC, married Martha Ellen Goins)
Jack Fagg(Rev. Jack F Goins, my grandfather)(June 27, 1888, Woolwine, Patrick Co, VA-Nov. 29, 1972 Durham, Durham Co, NC, married Laura Melvina Bumgardner)
I can only find them 3 times, once living in Franklin County,Virginia in 1870, once in Patrick Co, Virginia in 1880 and again in 1900, living in Surry County. Mary died in Stokes County, North Carolina in 1925 and was listed as a widow at the time.
I cannot find Jesse anywhere before 1870, it is like he simply appears in Franklin County in 1870.
Any and all information any one has on them I would be very thankful.
