Samuel JARRELL & GOODJOIN Family Connection
Posted by: Marilyn Goodgion (ID *****7696) Date: December 18, 2003 at 01:15:17
  of 515

I am trying to identify a Mrs. L. GOODJOIN (23), who is living in Samuel JARRELL's Household in LA in the 1860 Census. Also, in his household is Mrs. L. Goodjoin's son, J.B. GOODJOIN (3). I have more information on him and his family.

Mrs. L. could either be Samuel's daughter, who is called Eliza, or possibly Luretta's daughter, who is Elizabeth Bennett, in the 1850 Census. The ages seem about right for either girl. Both Census records follow.


1850 - LOUISIANA, Caddo Parish, Albany & Iles Beat, Pg. 363b, 15th & 16th Nov. 1850, Enumerated by: Wm. R. Douglass -- Lines 33-39, Household 127 / Family 129
[Enumeration Date: 1 June 1850]

Samuel JARRELL - 53, M, Farmer, Texas [Soundex code: J640]
Luretta ________ - 40, F, LA
Irving _________ - ?, M, Laborer, LA
Everet _________ - ?, M, Laborer, LA
Hardy _________ - 19, M, Laborer, LA
Eliza __________ - 12, F, AL
Samuel J. ______ - 7, M, AL
John BENNETT - 16, M, Laborer, LA
Elizabeth _____ - 13, F, LA

Notes: Lurretta is not his 1st wife, as in the 1860 Census, Sam states he married in 1849. Bennett children may be Lurreta's children.
Living next door to Robert C. Goodgion and A.J. Click.

If anyone can help me sort this out, I would be most appreciative. Thank you for looking and Happy Researching to all!
