Granted I am only in my 60's but if anyone were to look up My mother's name and My birthcertificate they would see the name spelled with out a "K"
Sorry, but some did and some didn't. Take it from one who is close up.
The West Texas distant cousins, some spell it both ways.
Even the one's who are direct from the book writer.
How close are you to the Isaacks, McIsaacks or How ever you choose to spell the "Name"?
My mother was one! And would be 100 yrs old. She knew alot of the family!!!
Her Fathers name was spelled both ways in census, and so
I know personally about spelling
She was born in Cherokee Co. TX. but lived all over the State. The whole family went to the Coast and made crops
for 2 yrs.
They traveled by Covered Waggon to and fro from Al. Ga. Sc.
Ar. and all the states between.
Purchased land in Counties all over Tx. and the other states.
There use to be Isaacks pictures hanging in the Court house at Rusk, Tx. of the old Judges. My Grand Father's cousins Uncles etc.
His tombstone reads Isaacks.
I knew him. My children knew him. First hand.
So I would suggest that everyone keep in mind that census takers anr reccord keepers wrote the names as they wanted.
Not as others wanted My Nicholson also spelled Nickleson.
So people should look at
