Scott Withrow, author, editor, historian, researcher, teacher and current president of the Melungeon Heritage Association "MHA" and  will join us for an interview on his chapter in the upcoming Goins Book to be published in 2015.

Scott Withrow will be representing the Goins men of the Revolutionary War era.  Scott is currently researching at the library in Gaffney and found that that Goins was actually in today's Chester County, and that one son lived in Cherokee County south of Gaffney and was baptized in Skull Shoals Church.   

Scott is also researching through the Genealogical Society of Old Tryon County publications, and have found 4 or 5 Goins listed in Dr. Bobby Moss's African-American Patriots in the American Revolution.  He has also gone to the South Carolina Room, Greenville County Library, for information on "Buck" Gowan, but what is found was a collection for the most part of the Gowan Newsletter by Arlee Gowan.  

Scott also plans to research in Chester County (library), SC State Archives (Columbia), Genealogical Society of Old Tryon County (library), Revolutionary War Pensions (online), the Native-American collection library at Univ. of SC-Lancaster and possibly again, the Caroliniana Room Library, Univ. of SC.  Scott will be talking to us about  some of the names, he has found regarding much migration after the Revolution.
