You mention that Waldin was never considered as Walling, but Walden or Wallen was...you must consider that those who couldn't spell their names were at the mercy of those who could phonetically spell it out, & then the ones who learned to spell it as such were taught by those who either could spell it correctly or who phonetically sounded it out...sometimes I think the name Walton was mistakenly used as Walling also...just my humble opinion; thanks for you input.
