Gedeon Gideon Jediah- - D'oh!
I have been searching for my grandmother's father. His name is listed on my grandmother's death record as being Gideon. My making of my family tree has been going quite well since finding this name. Today, however I received my grandmother's social security application where her father's name is listed as... Jediah. Does anyone have any information on this name? His last name was Canell. There is a family legend that he was the manager of a brothel in St. Paul, MN. Might Jediah be an alias or a middle name? How confusing:( Anyway, if anyone has any help to offer me, I would appreciate it VERY much!! Thanks a lot!
