WOHLEBER/WOHLHOEFER

Posted: 27 Oct 2004 11:49AM GMT
Classification: Query
Surnames: WOHLHOEFER.WOHLEBER
In reasearching the surname WOHLHOEFER I was directed to the Oriskany Monument site (top below). As it's not a common surname I was rather thrilled. Then I found another site on the Oriskany Monument (bottom below) with the names listed as WOLLOVER and WOHLEVER which is too close to WOHLEBER to ignore! I find it hard to believe that they could have gotten WOHLHOEFER by mispelling. Is there anyone who could explain this to me?
