Today, I would like to share the baptismal record for my great grandfather, William E. McCormack.
There is one very interesting item to note here. It is the spelling of both his and his father, Michael’s last name. I think almost of every other record of any kind, their last name is spelled McCormack. Here it is MacCormack. A second interesting item is the last name of the sponsor/informant, Doyle. I don’t know the relationship of them. They could be brother and sister or husband and wife. Either way, they were most likely friends of William’s parents, Michael and Catherine. A final item of note here is the spelling of Catherine’s maiden name, Paine. I have seen it spelled two ways, Payne or Paine.
