How has it come about that the sur name McCage is used as a first name etc. Story is, that the early settlers wanted a new life , new names etc. but the old timers did not like this. So to keep the history in the familiy, the old last name was inserted as a first. So if you dig deep in the past, there is a last name MCCAGE in that tree.

any comments on this.
