Re: Hermanston


    It seems as though many of the names seem to be spelled various ways,
indicating phonetic spellings.  In the middle 1800's my Kentucky branch began to
use the St. Clair spelling, as if they always knew that was how it was spelled.
I've seen it Sinclair, but only on land records and other official documents, which
were recorded by the clerk.  When they arrived it was often spelled Sinkler so I
figure the spelling would be arbitrary, since they had no control over that.  Other
names that exist in this branch are Thomas, Alexander, Mary, Margaret, and
Elizabeth.  Do you have any suggestions regarding my research, short of coming to
