There are many spelling variations to the surname Goins that include but are not limited to: Goin, Going, Gowen, Goyne, Guin and Goen. While the name does not appear in most of the list of names that are associated with the English surnames that are connected to the Lost Colony, there is a history of the Goins intermarrying with Waldens , Chavis, Locklear and other surnames that are associated with the Lost Colony. There was Francisco Guni that arrived in 1538 and Doughan Gannes that is listed on the roster of 1584. Some have speculated the name Goyne could be related to the Spanish and Portuguese settlers from Florida. It is interesting to note that James Ernest Goins is the current Chairman for the Lumbee Indians of North Carolina and is said to have come from a long line of tribal leaders.
Pontiac, one of the greatest Indian leaders, was an Ottawa Indian and said to have been born near Defiance, Ohio.
The largest Indian village ever located in Paulding County was Charloe, beautifully located upon the left bank of the Auglaize River in Brown Township. It was near the center of an Indian reservation, four miles square and known as Oquanoxa's reserve. Their chief, with about 400 Indians, dwelt there until 1820, when most of them moved west. Several straggling bands remained. Some of the names of Indians remembered by the old settlers were Ant, Wayne, Totigose, Saucy Jack, Big Yankee Jim, Draf Jim, P. Ashway, a squaw named Songo, and two brothers named Pokeshaw and Wapacanaugh. Charloe was named for an Indian chief, known as Charloe Peter, who acquired considerable fame as an orator and statesman.
At one time, the very ill daughter of Chief Oquanoxa was brought to Dr. John Evans, father of Dr. S.A. Evans of Delphos, for treatment. When her health was restored, the chief presented to the doctor, one of his finest horses.
