from the Kalamazoo Gazette 28 April, 1933 p.16

Headline: Stewart B[enjamin] Goins, 80, Former Barber, Dies

Stewart B. Goins, 80, colored for many years a barber in this city, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Jennie Johnson, 222 Reed street, Thursday evening. He was born in Steubenville* and had been a resident of Kalamazoo for the last 44 years.

The deceased is survived by two daughters, Mrs. Johnson with whom he had resided for some time, and Mrs. Carrie Ford. South Bend; and a brother Walker Goins of Canton, O.*

* Stewart Benjamin actually wasn't born in Steubenville but he was enumerated during the 1880 Jefferson County, Ohio Census under GONES. I don't know which brother they mean but Walker had passed away prior to this obit and I believe John was the only brother who is alive close to 1930?

from the Kalamazoo Gazette 5 July, 1920 page 2
