I am a Maughan. On two different occasions in recent weeks, including the paper for Nov. 4, the Deseret News has had articles/letters with our name misspelled.

Peter Maughan, who led the first settler into Cache Valley in the 1850s, spelled it with an "a." Do some people now omit it, or does someone at the News come from the Midwest? I've read of the name being done so there.In the Mountain West, we are proud to spell it Maughan.
