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.
