  • Notes 
    • Civil War veteran, Pvt, Co I, 16th and 9th KS Calvary. Several books are written about him and the gold he buried in the Kinninson Hills, OK.

      Richard and his son, Henry M., are mentioned as "intruders" (on the Cherokee nation) and were paid money from the "United States Commission". The documents are part of a suit filed by the Goins family against the Cherokee nation which had denied them (the Goins) membership into the tribe.
