have been looking at you query of granvill and mary polly goins. i think they are connected to by family line in kentucky. both names are in my line gowens that were known to have been in north carolina and originally from va. i also see that you have refered to the guion miller roll. i'm wondering if this is the indian connections my family has always believed we have but no one has been able to prove. the closest i've come is finding williams gowen(goins) listed in the 1790 north caroline census as "other free persons" meaning they were not listed as a slave, nor were they listed as white. william was born in hanover county, va. 1720 or 1730. i would love to see you family line and info you have to compare with mine and see if perhaps we are related.
