If she was born a Rashal and married one, would not her maiden name be that same as her husband's surname, Rashal?

I have an ancestor whose maiden name was Conant. She married a distant cousin and his surname was Conant, so her maiden name was the same as her husband's surname.
I guess this is right it is my Uncle's parents out of Louisiana, I Don't know much about them just know about my Cousins from this line,  Thanks
It could be that like with my ancestors, that the husband and wife share a common ancestor if you go back enough generations. It could also be that there is no connection.

Records are being indexed all the time so maybe try again in a few months. The simple fact that there are no birth or marriage records for either Edgar or Rosa may simply be an indication that these batches have not been indexed yet.
