There were 3 brothers in Michael & my line that spelled their name SutherLEN...story has it one of the wives determined that's how it should be spelled. Interesting enough...even though one went along with his wife's spelling while living, his headstone says SutherLIN.
Another of this same line spelled it Southerlyn for a short time. The spelling was a continuing family feud for a number of years with these 3 and the rest of their immediate families. Just a special note of interest for you Melba.
