Re:Spelling of Clackler name: My father was a Clackler. His father John W. Clackler spelled as shown. I have papers he signed that show it as Clackler. However, some of the family (brother and half brother) decided it was spelled Cleckler. Business men would write it on paperwork as Cleckler....have business papers showing that spelling. There were/are Cleckler families in Chilton County, AL. My father took care of his Dad's business and insisted his Dad spelled it Clackler. My Dad's Uncles also spelled as Clackler. There are census papers (1850) showing it as Clackler. Of course, there might be other census takers in other years that spelled it differently...probably phonetically...by sound of person pronouncing the name or assuming a different spelling from past experiences. Spelling of names do change when the name is in a foreign language and then changes to English.
