Dear Jennifer Mazzara:
Thank you for posting your findings on History Hub!
When transcribing, you should do your best to transcribe what you see. If you spot a mistake, you can use tags to increase the searchability of the document. Here's some guidance from the By the People Help Center:
If a misspelling will impact the searchability of the document, use a tag to add the correct spelling. Only registered users can add tags and review documents, so create an account if you'd like to do either of those activities.
Example: An author wrote “Ace Blinckin” instead of “Abe Lincoln”. Transcribe Ace Blinckin, and tag “Abe Lincoln”.
Thank you for your contributions!

Jennifer- I think you are correct. I googled also and the name Caleb S. Layton kept coming up. Manuscript should correct their label for the document. I believe the signature is Ca S Layton. Good catch.
P.S. Add a tag with the correct name as Loretta said.
