Being more standard - names for colonies before 1776
I've noticed that recently, the standard place names for colonies in British Colonial America sometimes add the word "colony" to the future state name, and sometimes do not. It would be a big help if that could be done consistently. For example, Connecticut is standardized as "Connecticut Colony" while Maryland is standardized as just "Maryland." I try to keep my local database in sync with the Standard Place Name database, but this makes it much more difficult to do so.
