I am working on Elizabeth (Gookin) Greenleaf (Gookin-47) 1681-1762.  Her FAG site has her maiden name as Gooking but not the rest of her family.  There is a Wikipedia article about her also using Gooking at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Elizabeth_Gooking_Greenleaf.  "...the first female apothecary in the Thirteen Colonies.  She is considered to be the first female pharmacist in the United States."  Should I put Gooking under other names?

You can put Gooking under "Other last names." That's how people usually handle that not uncommon scenario. That way it will show up if somebody searches for it.
