Dear Lori Coe, it appears we are 4th cousins once removed! Apparently you are related to I. E. Soper.
Are you aware of the 'Soper Compendium'?
Yes you have some of the history correct. Robert Edmund Forbell was my g grandfather on my maternal side. His father however was Isaac Morrell Forbell, son of Henry Forbell and Anne Morrell. I have the Forbells to about 1760 in Jamaica, Long Island, nothing prior.
Actually the 1900 Census lists Lucinda with 11 children born and 6 were alive in that census year. I have a picture of Lucinda with one of her sons. My grandmother, Jennie, passed away in 1927 at the young age of 34. Her mother, Lucinda, outlived her by two years.
