The surname patterns around the turn of the century and for some years after are, to say the least, complicated.Often a father's first name would become the child's surname.Names were also changed to facilitate spelling.Sometimes a person took the name of another who was well-respected.Siblings did not necessarily have the same last name though they had the same mother and father.It helps when searching to look for family groups as opposed to individuals.
