Our earliest ancestors didn't concern themselves with standardized spelling. Proper names — even some common words — were spelled however they sounded in the ears of the person doing the writing. One of the greatest challenges for genealogists is dealing with the variant spelling of names through the ages.
About five generations ago, my ancestors settled on spelling their last name "D‑E‑S‑H‑O‑N". But we still don't agree on exactly how to represent it.
Some of my relatives honor the original French preposition and put a space in the middle of the word: "De Shon".
On the other extreme, others completely Anglicize the spelling with no uppercase "S" and no space: "Deshon".
I prefer the middle ground, an eclectic CamelCased look that has a certain je ne sais quoi: "DeShon".
On this web site, I have tried to honor all the variant spellings in the way that the person most likely would have spelled their last name. That means you'll see all the variations here.
Searches on this site are not case-specific, so "Deshon" and "DeShon" will yield the same result.
But putting that space in the surname means it's a completely different name. So "De Shon" and "DeShon" are two different surnames.
If you find an individual that you believe would have spelled their name differently, please let me know and I'll fix it.
