I have a question. Couldn't RAU and ROWE, plus other spellings be the same family? I have other spellings of KUNKLE, such as KONKLE, and I recently came upon one that I believe is an early variation. CANKLEY. People tended to speak phonetically, pronuncing every syllable. We have the name David ROWE in our WERST family, but have no idea who he was. Too, the family had a tie to Stark Co., OH, as they were also in Darke Co., and other various counties in that area. Are ROW and RUE both possibilites, also?
