William Esmond Acox

We have an interesting situation with Winnebago Co. My husband's ancestor is listed as William Esmond ACOX on his marriage and death certificate and went by the name Esmond most of his life. When we requested his birth records in Winnebago Co. IL. born 8 Dec. 1885, parents William C. ACOX b.April 1862 and Lillian FILLMORE b. Aug 1862, the birth certificate recorded Leonard William as the child's name. There seem to be no other records of this Leonard William ACOX. We first assumed that the two were twins but the birth records says a single birth. What an interesting mystery!! tacox@zoomnet.net Thank you. Monica
