Census Records

1850Dwelling 779, Nelson Co., VirginiaGabriella was enumerated with her brother-in-law Samuel Goings as head of household. Rozier Dedwylder made a study of the personal property tax records of Amherst County and found that James Going, Sr. and James Going, Jr. were list on the 1850 tax rolls. Only James Going, Sr. appeared in 1851. It is suggested that by Cubert Thomas Wood of Columbia, Tennessee that James W. Going died during 1850 and that his brother, Samuel Going, assumed his family. The household of Samuel Going and Gabriella Skinner Going were enumerated in the 1850 census of Nelson County, adjacent to that of his father. Samuel Going is regarded as the brother-in-law of Gabriella Skinner Going by Rozier Dedwylder. Perhaps Samuel and James are really the same person.7

A special note from his granddaughter, Shelby Nichols --- In honor of the patriarch of our family, and the most intelligent man I've ever known... I wanted to take a moment to mention his life's work. Back in the day, my grandfather traveled around the nation installing minutemen missiles in the ground. He also wrote the engineering manuals for NASA, specifically for the Apollo 11 rocket mission to the moon (the rover included). The way I understand it, he laid the groundwork for developing control system strategies that they still reference today. on February 22, 2017.6
