there are a number of reasons for different spellings. The first is early spelling was very phonetic, also a large portion of the people could not read or write and if the person was say German and the fellow taking the information was French what one said & the other heard could be totally different. My own grandfather came from Scotland and unless you listened very carefully you had a hard time understanding him. Angie Whitehead
