Even though the DC shows no full name and only the initials of R. M. Goings, we believe this is Robert M. Goings. Research indicates he was last documented with his family in Elk, Washita Co., Oklahoma Territory on the 1900 census. Land transactions then show that he made four land transfers between 1901 and 1903 and all in Washita Co., O. T.

By 1910 census time, his wife Lucy (shown as a widow) and his daughter are found in Tarrant Co., TX.

The DC of R. M. Goings shows his usual residence as Smithfield, TX which is in Tarrant County. He was only in Austin, TX for 1 3/4 month and it seems to have been only for health reasons.

In April 2011, Find-A-Grave volunteer Terri Jones provided the following: "Searched the entire cemetery and could not find the grave There are many markers that can no longer be read in the cemetery, as well as graves that are marked with stones only. I was unable to locate this grave."
