Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Dec. 19, 1881
Texas, USA
Death: Dec. 26, 1959
Yavapai County
Arizona, USA

Frank had blue eyes, sandy colored hair, and at age 60 measured 5' 8" in height.

Father is Cebe "Seaborn" Goins. Mother is Sarahan Matilda Rogers. On the death certificate, his mothers maiden name is listed as Merritt, which is understandable, however inaccurate. Franks mother's mother Beatrice "Beady" Royn or Rowan remarried to a Kenion Merritt who raised Franks mother Sarahan Matilda Rogers and her sister Sarah. It appears that Franks mother answered to both the Merritts surname and Rogers surname. Several children were born to the Merritts, in particular a Jehu Jefferson Merritt who lived in Hillsboro, NM near Frank Goins and his family.

Frank was married twice.
His 1st wife was Zetta Naomi"Szeta" Chambers. They had a son named Samuel Goins Born March 1916 Hillsboro, NM and Died 5 Oct 1916 in Tyrone, Grant Co, NM..and a 2nd son Delbert C. Goins Birth 3 Apr 1918 in New Mexico
Death 18 April 1943 in Silver City,Grant,New Mexico due to a car accident. Delbert was married at the time to a Mary Randall.

His 2nd wife was a widow. Mary Cornelias "May" Lake-Moore-Goins. She died in 1935. They had a daughter Nelda "Nell" Gene (or Jean) Goins.

It appears that at the time of Franks death, he was estranged from his only living relative, his daughter Nell.
