Why was my Grandfather Dorus Earnest Peterson's name changed to Dorius.
Although some records do spell his name that way, they are an incorrect spelling of his name done by someone other than Dorus himself. He was named after his maternal grandfather, Dorus Burzee Warner. He passed that name to his son Clarion Dorus Peterson and My father passed that name to my brother Dean Dorus Peterson. I knew my grandfather personally, so I am going on personally known family facts. His name should be corrected and Dorius be used as an alternate name not the primary name.
Dorus is a family name.
