    Question Goinstown Indians (Rockingham-Surry Group)

    My name is David Richardson. I'm from Stokes County NC and have just begun research into my family histories. My family surnames are Richardson, Collins, Bullins, Taylor. The Richardson/Bullins/Taylor come from the "Goinstown" area on the border of Stokes/Rockingham counties. No one on this side of the family is willing to talk about family history, and I've only been able to trace back a few generations. Everything I've seen referring to the Goinstown Indians mentions this general reluctance to disclose information and I'm looking for any avenues around the block of silence. If anyone has any info they can provide me about the Goinstown or Rockingham/Surry Group Indians, please reply. Specifically, attendance lists of the Martin or Goinstown Indian School located in Rockingham Co. up to the 1950's would be much appreciated (yeah, I know -- good luck) or any recognition of the names Thomas Richardson/Martha Jane Bullins or Joseph Richardson/Martha Jane Taylor. Thanks!

    Welcome David. I've asked a Goins expert to take a look at your post.

    Joseph Richardson/Martha Jane Taylor

    Hi I saw your query on the Goinstown Indians and the names Joseph Richardson & Martha Jane Taylor. They were my GGGrandparents on my Grandma's side of the family and I just received a lot of information on them, which I would be happy to share with you. How are you related to them?

    My Grandpa's side of the family is the Goins from Rockingham County, North Carolina.

    Sorry to say it, but Yeahup has only posted this once, three years ago. Hopefully, his/her email is still good and he/she will know you've posted.

    Welcome.

    Hope you don't mind me bringing this one back around. David, if you are still around, I'd love to hear about any discoveries you've made.
