Angela,

There maybe so relation in the names. It is my understanding that the "a"'s in our last name were dropped when my family came to American. I thought there were more than one but I could be wrong. I was told that is why anyone with the spelling of "Gerred" was truely blood related and anyone with the "a" variation could be. I do not know if this helps or not. I also mentioned the bible with the family history in my other post that supposely explains the variations and why we came to America.
