California Golphins

Greetings! From the little info that I have, it seems that my Great Grandfather Frank Golphin and his brother (unk) came to California late 1800's or early 1900's. My grandfather Elwyn Timethious Golphin (Deceased 1988) was born in 1906.

As far as I can tell, Augusta GA is the area(plantation?) they migrated from.. Some interesting Golphin History out there I guess..

I did find an article about a church founded by a Golphin surname, that church supposedly later relocated and became Morehouse U. I dont have any other insights, as far as our family, my father had no siblings, I have two sisters and I havent met or heard of any other Golphins on the West Coast...

If you can help.. I'd be interested in learning more also.. Thanks

Rick Golphin

I'm glad to find this message board. Over the past few years I have come upon a few people I don't know with this last name. Most have roots in South Carolina, around the Georgia border. To the best I've been able to find, the name came through the Carribian. Apparently driven out during some revolt and some one (race unknown) settled in the Carolinas. My grandfather was Willie Joe Golphin (1900-1976). When my father was young (Willie Cortez Golphin), my grandfather (we called him "Big Daddy") moved to Atlanta, where my dad was raised, and I was born. I currently live in Versailles, Ky, right outside Lexington. I am intrested if you have more.
