Back to a Previous Name?

For a variety of reasons your female relative may have chosen to revert to a previous maiden name. One relative did not have any children with her second husband to whom she was married just a few years. After his death, she reverted to her first husband's last name. Divorced women sometimes revert to previous names as well.

Marriage may not have been the only time your female kin changed their name.
