Robert Goins served as one of the first trustees for the Daughters of Zion Society and his wife Patsy Goins was listed as President of the Daughters of Zion Society in the 1888 Charlottesville City Directory. Robert and Patsy Goins were also founders and charter members of the Delevan First Baptist Church.
In 1845 Robert Goins, a carpenter, purchased 3 acres and built a cottage which became the nucleus of the house which still stands on Lankford Avenue in Charlottesville, Virginia. A wealth of historical information about the 114 Lankford Avenue property of Robert and Patsy Goins, and about their family, can be found in the Charlottesville Historic Surveys.
