Later they removed to adjoining Hancock County, Tennessee where they lived for a few years. Timothy N.

It was there that Anna Idol Goins filed for a divorce from Timothy N. Goins. Lynn Rockcastle wrote, Apparently Timothy was a wanderer and would leave Annie with the kids to support. He took off to be with another woman. Lynn Rockcastle wrote July 29, 2001: Pleasant Goin, born c1808 had a son named Timothy Goin, born c1845. Timothy is with Pleasant up to the 1860 Claiborne County, Tennessee census. Sometime after 1860, Timothy, being of age, left home-- but where was he? He wasn't in Tennessee. The name Timothy was not very usual back then, but he still is not showing up anywhere for the 1870 census. The only Timothy Goin[s] I found for that year was in Patrick County, Virginia. Timothy is listed as mulatto living [married?] with a black woman: Goin, Timothy, mulatto Martha, mulatto Cornelia, 8, mulatto Laura, 3, mulatto Martha 3/12, white Timothy

Timothy of 1864. I can't find anything to substantiate this death date. Anna Idol Goins was enumerated at the head of Household No. 303, in the 1910 census of Knox County, Powell Station, Tennessee, Enumeration District 118, 7th Civil District: Goins, 58, widow, born in TN Annie
