The reason why I use Mahand rather than Mahan. Emma's sister, Sarah, was married to Martin Marion Bates, a brother of John C Bates. She is buried in the Old Shelby Cemetery in Shelby, AL. Sarah's name on the toomstone is spelled Mahand. I have a digital photo of the toomstones if you would like to have them e-mailed to you.
I am aware of the different spellings but being the toomstone is quite clear I have chosen to use that spelling. You may be complety correct, however.
