I read ... somewhere ... that the surname of "Cleveland", was sometimes changed to "Cleaveland", as a matter of stature, such as becoming an officer or something of stature.
I bring this up regarding the city of Cleveland, in Ohio.
All the maps in the Trumbull county records indicate the city's name to be Cleveland and that some earliest owner's of land were also named "Cleveland". If I remember right(I'm not looking at the docs right now), Moses' surname seems to be "Cleveland", when it's a document that was not "directly", written by him, but, with the "a"(Cleaveland) on items that were either authored or signed by him.
is it possible that the extra letter "a", has a specific purpose in the name?
