If I could gather our records better, chuckl, so much info to save for future work! Not just names spelled different- but census takers whom couldn't spell(nor write a simple letter) but people who really didn't want the census takers writing their names down. Then add to that orphans from Indian raids and attacks that simply took the name of the family that adopted them. Babies born whose mothers died and grandparents raised- or strangers. How much to tell? How much to leave out- letters telling of betrayals (remind you of today's blogs?). Just wait, I'll be back!
