Today, I received the death certificates which confirms John, William, Henry and Loyal are the children of Michael and Angeline Henderson Goins. Brothers William and John were restauranteurs. The four brothers were born in Mount Pleasant, Jefferson County, Ohio. Three of four brothers lived in Toledo at the same time. John briefly moved to Chicago and then back to Toledo. Henry moved to Cleveland. Henry was the informant on Loyal's death certificate.

John S. Goins, 49, fell dead in his home, 1821 Canton street, Wednesday afternoon, with an attack of heart disease. Goins was one of the leaders of the Canton street district. He lived in the rear of a restaurant he has conducted for several years. Wednesday afternoon he finished a conversation with Detective Culver, promising to bring witnesses to a Southard avenue shooting, walked back into his living room and fell to the floor.
