      "George Henry Gingerich, legally changed his surname from Gingrich to Ging(e)rich in 1944 when his initial pay-cheque from BF Goodrich at King & Victoria St in Kitchener was issued with the e added. As a new employee he did not want to ask the company to re-issue the cheque thinking they would let him go so he walked down to the county courthouse to have it changed."
