Now if I was purchasing property from someone and they had an alias, I would think twice before finishing the deal. In 1797 not everyone could read and write so names were often spelled numerous ways. (I have seen situations where the same name was spelled several different ways in the same document.) So this was not uncommon. But there was a problem because less than two months later a notice appeared in the Stewart Kentucky Herald.
