Jeanette Radcliffe WAS a WIDOW when she married Andrew Slauson so Radcliffe would have been her FIRST married name. In George C. Slawson's book on our family, he listed James as a SLAUSON and Henry as a SLAWSON. As strange as it may appear to us today, the people of the 19th century had no trouble changing the spellings of names or even mixing spellings within a single document. Part of this was due to a low level of literacy in the nation and part of it was due to the lack of the standardization of spelling at large. Hope this helps with your research. Milton
