I understood why he put the image under Sweat, but no reason it could not go under the G section too, since everyone agrees the first letter of the name is G..
I'm sorry, but it is not clear to me that the image shows double Es or an R in the last part of the name.. I can't say for certain what those letters are..and I have looked at the letters at varying sizes and spent hours going over the rest of the words, trying to make a solid determination..The only letters I am certain of (in my own mind) is the first and second as Ge..
Too bad we don't have more samples of the writer's handwriting..Wonder if there were more notes on other cases he did..Could help if we could see those, or even non-hurried handwritten letters..
At the very least, I would feel better if there were any document anywhere from the time period of ANYone with the surname Graweere, Geuween OR Geaween, but they seem not to exist.
