  • Notes 
    • In the marriage license of William Henry Rector and Martha Jane Kiger,Martha's last name is spelled as "Kiger", however on Martha's deathcertificate her father's surname is spelled as "Keiger", and alsoWilliam's first name is abbreviated as "Wm". The abbreviation Wm is acommon short hand for the name William that is sometimes used inAmerica. The different name changes can make it confusing in doinggenealogy searches unless you are aware of the shortened abbreviationsfor names and the suttle surname changes.
