Middle Initial Source

I've looked in the Changes but I can't find out who added the middle initial 'H' or why. I've never seen that before, anywhere, so I'm curious as to the source...

I looked through the Changes and it looks like this happened when two profiles were merged.  Click on this change for details:

1 Feb 2014:  11:03: Liz (Noland) Shifflett edited the data for William Dixon. (Merged Dickson-606 into Dixon-357)

You may need to find the change related to the other merged profile to find who actually added the middle initial to that other profile.

Thank you! I looked through a lot of changes and never found that one.
The H. was in the merged profile - see https://www.wikitree.com/index.php?title=Dickson-606&diff=prev&oldid=7661732

The merged profile had been created by Kaye Carter - see https://www.wikitree.com/g2g/500468/rip-mary-kay-kathryn-tryon-carter
Thank you Liz!

I have gone ahead and removed the initial and added a note to go with the change record. If that were ever documented/sourced it would be easy to add back in.
