But, everything else is correct even the correct spelling of the unusual names. It is just all the middle initials are wrong...??? I have more research to see if I find these wrong names elsewhere - and of course the correct names too.

Jackie I'm a Halloween baby but many years ago.

Personal goal is to weigh in 149 by the end of March 2013. I did not make my previous goal so must do better...I ACHIEVED THIS GOAL IN MAY 2013. A LOSS OF 37 POUNDS.
I HAVE ADDED A NEW GOAL OF LOSING ANOTHER 4 POUNDS TO ACHIEVE BY JUNE 30, 2013. 145 BY JUNE 30, 2013 - I'M ON MY WAY...

Yeah, but the census reporters weren't always real careful. There re lots of errors in the census records - name & dates of birth.

Henry C. Yaeger, his wife Philomena Yaeger, and sons Harry Humboldt, Frederick Spencer, Charles Newton, Lancelot Darwin, Arthur Payne an Eugene Huxley. These are in a typed listing of the family and birthplaces by Uncle Henry the child of Charles Newton Yaeger. My mother in law was the daughter of Frederick Spencer Yaeger.

I have the names signed in an abstract and a enough other references to know these are correct names.

I found the family in the 1880 census in Helena MT however, all had different middle initials!!! WHY! In the census they are Henry C.W., Frederick A., Charles O., Lancelot G., Theodore A.. What would be the purpose of listing an incorrect middle initial indicating a different middle name?

As is evident, Theodore A. must have died and two other boys were born after 1880. This is insignificant to the middle name initial puzzle.

Jacob Robinson died in Stokes County, North Carolina. Hi will was dated March 15, 1820 & proved in the June 1820 Term of the Stokes County Court. He was married to Rebecca [possibly Kelly] & had eight children. We have information on all his children, but can't find his parents. He is supposed to have been born in 1745 in North Carolina. I suspect his family was originally from Virginia, but there were many Robinsons there & haven't been able to connect him to any particular family.

Rev. John P. Campbell was born c1802 [possibly in Tennessee] & died in 1868 at his home in Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee. He was pastor at he Cumberland Presbyterian Church i Nashville & "editor& proprietor" of the first Nashville City Directory. In 1855, he resided at 66 South Cherry Street in Nashville. He married Luanza W. Smith on September 25, 1827 in Maury County, Tennessee; daughter of Reuben Smith & Mary "Polly" Miller, originally of Virginia. They had eleven children. I have no idea who his parents were.

Temperance [???] married Lawrence Eley & had six children. They lived first in North Carolina & later in Logan County, Kentucky. No idea who her parents are.

Narcissa Leeper was born November 20, 1816 in Tennessee & died July 18, 1842 i Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee. She married Bedford W. Miles (b. 1820 North Carolina) & had three daughters, two of whom died in infancy. Haven't yet found her parents.

It might help if some of them had more unusual names.

That would be my indian ancestry. They lived in Oklahoma before it was a state, and they refused to register for the Dawes Commission.

I trace my Campbell line in Rockland County NY back to Stephen who was born in 1803 and there was a William Campbell in the county who fought in the Revolutionary War. Someone has traced a few of his sons down through the years but none of them connect to Stephen.

One grandfather is the first person in his family to have a last name. It is the one his father was given when he landed in the US.

I know they came from Ireland and settled in Boston but do not know what part of Ireland. I've been chasing it on and off for 30 years.

3 brothers and 2 sisters came. Only 2 of the 5 married and had children. One brought his wife one married here.

One brick wall:
John Swenson ~ my great-great grandfather piloted his own ship (with friends) to come to America from Sweden. I have no idea where he landed...

I would love to find out who his first wife was, the names of his 3 daughters that he left behind with his in-laws.

I have found his 2nd wife and 3 daughters ~ I am related to his 3rd wife and the next 12 children.
--------------------------------
Another brick wall:
Charles Fredrick Gebert / Gilbert ~ came from Berlin Germany. I have found immigration records on his father, mother & siblings....but not for him.
------------------------------
And another brick wall:
gr-gr-great gpa...Michael Barlement ~ immigrated in 1828, arriving in Philadelphia. I know that he worked for John Jacob Astor, in New York & was his gardener. I also know that two of his children were born in New York and that he had a milking business.

What I can't find are any resources to back up where he was between 1828 and 1850. From the time he arrives until 1850, when he shows up in Wisconsin....can't find him. Truly a frustrating mystery!
