In my tribute to Janette Carter, who died over the weekend, I spelled her first name "Janette." That's the way I've always spelled it when I've written about the Carter Family . In the front page story about her death, it was spelled that same way. But in the obituaries, it was "Jeanette."
Kevin Castle solved the mystery of the dueling spellings in his Tuesday story "Daughter says Carter Family's music will live on."
(Her daughter Rita) Forrester noted that although "Jeanette" was the name that A.P. and Sara gave her and is recorded on her birth certificate, she usually signed her name as Janette.
