Seeking anyone with knowledge of the Goeppner family entering the US through Jacksonville, Fla., in the 1800's---  I believe it would be Joseph Goeppner, before they changed the spelling to Goepner.    Also, there was a Schmidt with Mr. Goepner, perhaps his wife.   I believe they went to NY after entering.  There are Goepners in NY, however, I've lost all paperwork in a fire, so Im starting again. 

This man would be my great grandfather or grandfather... However,   his daughter, or granddaughter used the name Smith...   changed from Schmidt....
