Our subject is said to have been a recipient of grants number 657 and 751, but clearly this is not the case.

8.  Marjorie Hood Fischer.  1996.  Tennesseans before 1800: Washington County.  Frontier Press, Galveston, TX.
This book is an index to court records before 1800.  There are numerous entries for Thomas GOAN / GOIN / GOING in the county court minutes and county pleas, plus one entry for a deed.  Index entires aren't dated, so you would have to look each one up to get the dates.

Goin, Thomas S. 1854 wb-3-193 (Gr)
Our subject is said to have a will recorded in Claiborne County, however, no such will is indexed here, and this book purports to index every extant ante-bellum will book in the state.  Note that the earliest will book available for Claiborne County begins in 1839.  The only two Thomas GOINs (or variations) indexed are the two shown above.  ["Gr" stands for Grainger County.]

10.  Goldene Fillers Burgner.  1983.  [Abstracts of] Washington County Tennessee Wills, 1777-1872.  Southern Historical Press, Greenville, SC (reprinted 1992).  No entry for our subject.

11.  Descendants of Thomas GOIN (online at the Drake-Rockcastle Family History & Genealogy web site).

12.  WorldConnect / Ancestry World Trees (online at RootsWeb.com/Ancestry.com):  There are over 50 files here containing our subject.  The majority give him wife, Rebecca CLARK, while many do not name his wife.  One gives him a second wife, Sarah JONES, while another gives him just one wife, Jemima SINNES.  I have no idea which is correct.

13.  Email from Pat Ann JONES, descendant of our subject, who is emphatic that our subject's wife has not been identified.
