Bob, Am certain you are aware of this but
quite often the person completing the document decided the spelling of the name.
example: If the person taking a census record or listing a person as having paid
their taxes, etc. was German then he would
use a German spelling or whatever. Making it
almost impossible 200 years later to determine the original spelling of a name.
I have one line that the name is spelled about four different ways over the years.
