Yes, the spelling is correct for my family. I have found both spellings within the same family. Thank you for your help. My George was married to Mary and lived in the Bienville, Lincoln, Montgomery area until his death in 1871. I have found the family in the 1870 Census- Jackson Parish. I called the LA College Library and asked for information. The nice lady at the resource desk found that he was appointed to the staff in Sept 1859 to teach theology. I was wondering if the family attended church in the area while he taught at the university. I am trying to find documentation of the family, specifically the mother, Mary Mathewes and the son, Charles. Any church records that list the family would work!
