View Full Version : Standup/Goin/Goings

09-18-2002, 04:47 PM
I've started a genealogy message board for the Standup surname at rootsweb. I have included Goings (and all subsequent spellings) at this time because, while I made a request for Goings as well I have not heard anything yet.

The scant info I have availble at this time are census records from 1850, Blackwell District, Albemarle County, VA.

It's not much but it's a start.

Linda, I emailed Jack Goins right after you suggested him and have heard nothing--the say stotry as with Carrieswater. Has Jack been sick or recovering as well do you know?
