My daughter is working on a family history project for geography class in middle school.We found your post could help but notice your name.Here is an excerpt of her paper,"In 1833 John Goyne changed the spelling of our last name from Goyne to Guynes, which has been the correct spelling since then. Many years later, in 1875, a part of the Guynes family moved to Texas by wagon.John Ranklin Guynes, the first member of the Guyneses to move to Texas, married Adeline and had one child named George Guynes." She used a book writing by on of her aunts as reference to the paper. We are excited to find out more from the forum. Hope that is helpful in some way.
