I have wondered about my family lineage for a long time. I have always been fascinated with my last name since it is so rare, at least around where I am from. I have seen several variations Goings, Goins, etc. I have very little information but here is what I do have if anyone can help. My Grandfathers name was John Thomas Going Sr. His wife was Charlote Fisher Going, they had four children, Michael Todd ( my father) Tina, Sandra, and John Thomas II. My father had a total of four children from two different marriages. Michale Todd II, Latasha, Jonathan ( myself) and Brittany. My grandfather died before I was born but I have been told that he was part Cherokee. My immediate family has always lived in Nc, mostly around Durham as far as I know. Any information is greatly appreciated.
