HANKCOCK alias HANKOCK or HANCOCK
The above spellings and misspellings of my maternal granmother's name appear on various census forms and even on birth, marriage and death certificates.
As far as I can tell, HANKCOCK is the correct version, as several documents with alternative spellings have been amended to this version and one doc. I have bears a signature with this spelling.
This HANKCOCK side of my family (going backwards) is:
