I do Henry Theis and Jacob Theis each had a son in east Texas they were both named William Theis and they were both cotton farmers. There checks kept getting mixed up and Jacob's son said that to fix it he would add one s to his name. From then on it has been the same either way we are all still conected to the same family. Thanks I just thought I would share information to those who would like to know.
