ALONZO SEBURN "Bud" GOINGS was the 3rd child, 1st born twin, of Alonzo Stubblefield Going and Pearl Cathern Holt Going and a World War II Army Veteran. Like his brothers, Alonzo died from heart disease.

He was named after his father, Alonzo, and his Grandfather, Seburn Holt.

Alonzo's mother, his twin sister Pearl Imogene and brother Charles Asro Goings added an "s" to their last name (Goings) after the death of their father and upon moving to Oklahoma. It was explained that when the children entered school in Oklahoma their teachers automatically added an "s" to their last name and they just got used to the change and stopped trying to correct everyone.

Alonzo's oldest brother, Duel Glen Going, left the family in Oklahoma and returned to live with his uncle in Pocahontas, Randolph County, Arkansas; therefore, he kept his last name without an "s" (Going).
