The contributions we have put up would all appear to be part of the same family BUT I'm not yet certain that they relate to your John Samuel......

That is much better and proves that he must have changed his surname at marriage or before, johnw and shaun. It's amazing how these relations changed their names to keep us searchers from finding them!
Thank you.
