Dinah’s name is spelled as Dine in her daughter Elizabeth’s birth record; Diona on the first Martha’s birth record; Dinah on the second Martha’s birth record; and Dianah on Mary’s birth record. Her own christening records her as Dinah, daughter of James Caines and Mary. Interesting how many different ways names could be spelled when the owner of the name was uneducated and could not spell it out for the writer.
