One Letter Is All It Takes

Sometimes it can be difficult to get the wrong name out of your head--especially when you have only one spelling or rendering of the name to go on.

I was stuck on Emma Olenbaugh. She was only found in one census record. Turns out Olenbaugh was not her last name--Osenbaugh was.

Could a change in one letter make all the difference?
