A Note About Spelling

People weren’t as particular about family name spelling in the olden days as they are today. Many people spelled phonetically or used the common spelling of the day.

You’ll also see “sould” instead of “should,” and “diseas” instead of “disease.”

So in this blog, I’ll use the spelling that’s on the original record, or in the original transcription.

For instance, you might see Hendrick, Hendricks, Hendrix, Hendrickson, Hendrixson, or even Henderson or Hendrakes!

Just thought I’d warn you. 🙂
