No, this isn’t a joke about Pete and Repeat. Liver and Return are actual first names of two men in the Cah-yar-nee family in 1869 in the Cherokee West Census. Yes, really!
Not only that, they are the only two men of that surname. If you were related to Liver and Return, would you claim the same surname? It appears that Liver might be the son of Return, because Liver has no one living with him and Return has an adult female living with him, 4 male children and 2 females. Or conversely, Liver could be elderly and the father of Return.
I can hear it now. What’s your father’s name? “Liver.” And my kids thought I embarrassed them in high school.
Let’s hope that he didn’t name one of his sons Return Jr., or in this case, it would be Return, again.
