I just sent you an email to your personal email like 1 minute ago. That is more info than I have. As far the the 1900 and 1910 censuses, I will look to see if there are more names. Get back to you on that, maybe tomorrow. As far as the name goes, it's hard to say. I have the same problem. My maiden names is Winders, yet, as I go back, I'm seeing that my gr and gr-gr grandfather married under the name of Winder. My husband had a lot of problems with his genealogy, his name is Stevens and he finds it spelled both Stevens and Stephens. I guess the best you can do is look at it as there were other people who would write this info down, like in censuses that may not have spelled the name right. Also, I guess, if the info looks close and there is a slight misspelling, it probably is him. I would venture to guess that your father surely knew what his name was, however, his grandfather may have spelled and pronounced it differently -- no fault of anybody, it's just how it happens, I guess. Thanks for your info. I'll look at those censuses again.
