Wouldn't it be nice if all our ancestors, and the clerks who recorded their data, agreed on the spelling of the Alcorn name? Unfortunately, that's not the way it happened. So here's a list of spellings that you might try when doing your searches: Alcorn, Allcorn, Alkorn, Alcorne, Allcorne, Alchorn, Alchorne, Alcern, and Olcorn. Have you run across any other variations? Also, I'd be interested in hearing how Alcorns around the world pronounce their names. Here in Kentucky, we say "all-corn," but I met a researcher from California who swears it's "el-corn."
