Thanks so much for your comments. In my family research if the custom of
naming the first son after the father had been followed, first son would have
been named Joseph, but that was not what was found. First daughter (second
child) was indeed Mary, though she was recorded as "Illegitimate", as was third
child, a son. As all of this occurred over one hundred twenty-eight years ago
who to say why? I could speculate, sure, but I would certainly never presume
to judge my ancestors. After all, without them I would not be sitting here
typing this email. Life is good, and a wonderful gift!

It is interesting to wonder if given names follow any particular rules. We
had the thread that discussed the naming of girls. I think it was first girl
was Mary, second one was Anna, third was Sophie, next was Helen etc.
My grandfather was Istvan. He was legitimate, so I do not know if that
