Note the picking up of the father-in-law's name for the son. I have a similar family name in my uncle was apparently named for a family near where he was born, being John Buren Linthicum called Buren all of his life. I left out the penned notes but they fit where I have put ^.
Use a lot of caution on similar names, I am descended from a long line of Archibalds and Hezekiahs and have seen people assume that an unusual name for our time means it was unique in the past too. There are 25 mentions of Hezekiah Linthicum in Mrs. Badger's book, at least 15 of them are different people.
