For my first time to participate, I would like to offer two persons having the same name. Or almost the same. One of my first family members to settle in southern Alabama was Stephen Jones, who moved there from a suburb of Atlanta. In almost the same year (circa 1825) another Stephen Jones moved to southern Alabama from near Atlanta. This Stephen sometimes included a middle initial T for Thomas. The Stephen without a T moved to Marengo county. Stephen with a T was a county or so over. To confuse subsequent genealogists, both Stephens married an Elizabeth. As a result, those of us who accepted hints from Ancestry.com frequently have the wrong wives, wrong times of birth and death, and wrong names for the children of the Stephen Jones family. The 1840 census does give both households, but, of course, for that year no children's names were offered.
