Lynn, Well can I understand your confusion!!I found my Elihu Joplin with the spelling of Goblin.Another time I found the name spelled three different ways in one item.My Great Grandfather,Joseph Joplin, b. 1848/1852 in IL, son of Henry (Henry Lee, Henlee, Henley), son of William, son of Elihu, married 18 Nov. 1875, in Benton, Scott Co. Missouri, Malinda Catherine Patterson, b. 1860, dau of John, b. 1827 MO, son of Samuel T. b. 1802, died 1858. It us my valuable opinion that they are all the same family.
