March or Marsh - compare 'c' in Frances.

Thanks Carol & conahy,

I am still not certain and when I look at the c in Frances I think its MARCH  but when I look at the S in other entries it then looks like MARSH.   :-\

The thing to do is check a wider range of nearby entries, looking for whether he uses the long-s in mid-word positions.

The only examples of s in the image are in end-word positions.

His name is EVERATT

For some reason that variant of the name has declined.
Today I broke my personal record for most consecutive days alive.
