I have Lily (Pomeroy) Patterson as one of my UK ancestors. As her MS was Pomeroy, should this not be Lilly (Patterson) Pomeroy? This way, she will show up as a Pomeroy on my watchlist.

She was Lilly Patterson, formerly Pomeroy, when she died, so the way it displays is correct.
Thanks to all who answered. Got it now.

Try search her name on your watchlist. You can search for either Pomeroy or Patterson and she will show up as both.
