Most people who have spent any time researching their ancestors can tell you that was quite common for people to have more than one middle name.
It also was, and is, quite common to misread handwriting, especially the first capital letter of a word or name. Some appear similar, as in T and L, most confusion appears to be where there are flourishes involved.
Most people who have spent any time researching their ancestors also are familar with the custom of using the mother's maiden name as a middle name for a child, especially a son. Therefore, William T's middle name could possibly be his mother's maiden name.
Most people who have researched their ancestors realize that they have to take ALL records pertaining to those who share a similiar name into consideration, and not choose just one as final proof of a person's identity.
The evidence will speak for itself, and in the case of whether William T Anderson and William C Anderson were two seperate men, the evidence CLEARLY and indisputedly proves they were.
