Re: Help figuring out my Gr-Grandpa's Name
In Response To: Help figuring out my Gr-Grandpa's Name ()
I believe you are right in believing Kenny's name was spelled phonetically. I would search using that spelling and see what else you can find. Don't worry too much about the birth year being a little off. Sometimes the birth years fluctuates because people weren't sure of the exact year that they were born due to being born via a midwife and the dates not always being recorded. If they're within 10 yrs difference and other information matches, it very well could be the same person. I'm having a similar issue with my 3rd great-grandfather. Good luck.
