Elizabeth Goings has been estimated to have been born between 1830-1831. Her last known location was documented by the 1870 census in Red Hill Twp. of Ouachita Co., AR. Neither Elizabeth nor her husband, John Goings have been found after that date. Their children migrated from Arkansas to Texas and used various spellings for their surnames.

As of February 2016, no maiden name has been proven for Elizabeth. Researchers consider she may be either Elizabeth McGill or Elizabeth Reynolds.

A 1917 journal has surfaced in the Reynolds family which states that Elizabeth McGill married John E. Goings in Starkville, MS. Elizabeth McGill's mother was Elizabeth Jane (Montgomery) Reynolds-McGill which made Elizabeth Goings the half sister of Malcom, William and Hugh Reynolds. This may be why her daughter's death certificate shows her as "Elizabeth Runnals". Research continues to try to confirm the maiden name of Elizabeth Goings.

John E. and Elizabeth Goings most likely died in Arkansas. The search continues to locate their death places and burial places.
