Thanks, Marge. Twenty years and still plugging away suggests I've not let the spelling of names deter me. I finally found a Burton McGee out of NC who morphed into Burton McGhee in GA, then he disappeared, only to turn up in AR as Burton Megee. I know that most names were spelled phonetically - at least more or less - until maybe the late 1800, early 1900s. But I appreciate the advice!
