I am having trouble with my own "Bachman" line. Without getting specific, I can trace them to Lehigh County and Bucks County PA in 1818. A legal document refers to my g-g-g-g grandfather as "Samuel Bauckman." There are many "Bachmans" in the Lehigh Valley of PA, not so many Buckmans. Seeing that spelling of "Bauckman," I wonder if maybe Samuel and his predecessors were "Buckman" rather than "Bachman." It's been "Bachman" ever since.
Have any of you seen this transposition in your research? Could I maybe find my line back the "Buckman" path rather than the "Bachman/Baughman" path?
Thanks for your help.
