Thanks for your reply. Do you have any further info. on your Tubb family?....or any certificates for proof of your Stephen's father. If not..a certif. will show the father's name and address and occupation....which I have all of, so that would proove the connection.
As for the spelling....I have found it spelled both ways, as well as a few others.I know from my other name searches of the same time frame that 'spelling' was not important.Partly because of illiteracy, the different dialects and of whoever in the family went to record the birth/death etc. and whoever took down the information.
E-mail me for further info.I'd like to talk more.I'm really at my wits end with this line.
