Bob Dyer: One twisted family tree - woman finds out late husband was also her father
I’m my own grandpa... everybody sing!
i was thinking the exact same thing!
Did both of them have blue skin?
Don’t tell me, Arkansas, right?
If your fiance has a complete set of your baby pictures, be suspicious.
I want this to be more of an inspirational story, she says. If Ive come through this, anyone can come through anything through the help of the Lord.
What a great attitude, from a great woman...
“Forget it Jake, It’s Chinatown!”
“Did both of them have blue skin?”
You must know people from the hills of Kentucky. We did have a case where the daddy was the granddaddy. Ours didn’t have methemoglobinemia just leukemia.
If you go to a family reunion, you’re probably a redneck.
It’s “If you go to a family reunion to pick up women, youre probably a redneck.”
So, half of Akron knew but didn't say anything before they married and had kids? Half of Akron couldn't have cared less that their inbreeding might have caused the children problems?
How come she didn’t get suspicious when he paid for the wedding?
Step aside Woody. We have a new Champion.
And she is telling everyone this, why?
I won’t go into detail, but there is a family here today where the parents are half brother and sister. Each and every one of their kids has some medical, mental and/or physical problem. At least two kids died. They refuse to listen to reason.
If your family tree does not fork you may be a redneck.
My family tree takes on the appearance of a manzanita bush for several generations back in the 1800s. There were only a few families within horse cart distance, and they all married each other.
From the article:
Why would anyone volunteer this kind of information?
Because Valerie Spruill wants to be an example. The 60-year-old Doylestown woman wants to show other folks born into miserable situations that they can still lead good, productive, fulfilling lives.
How are you, old friend?
It would have been caught and papa would have ended up in jail...
I am well, and yourself?
Maybe, I will tell everyone about my life, ;-)
My youngest in high school had an assignment where they were supposed to write an essay about one of their parents lives, love my husband and family, they are boring.
She wrote about my, life and the teacher accused her of making it up. hahahah.
Anyway, we all have lessons to teach others, I suppose she is correct, her story is just very odd and sad.
It might make a good movie script.
FR has been active these days, lots and lots of emotions running hot and on occasion irrational (not me of course).
Welcome back, Scout.
I know of a similar but not nearly as bad story. Everyone either knew or had strong suspicions and nobody said a word until after the funeral. Up until the 70s most people believed in not interfering with other people’s families for good or for ill. Wives and kids got beaten or killed and there was plenty of molestation but nobody said anything. In a lot of ways the good ole days were not so good.
“They refuse to listen to reason.”
Our Chief Resident made the crack at the time of the father/grandfather incident that everyone in her neck of the woods had someone in a wheelchair. This was an area that originally had a lot of intermarriage. This group has been intensively studied by geneticists over the last 30 years and things have changed.
‘I went to my family reunion last weekend down in Arkansas and met my cousin, my aunt, and a long lost half-sister I never knew I had.
And she was a real nice lady too...’
How is it that her *uncle* knew but her *father* did not?
“For years, she overheard odd whispers she couldnt figure out. She finally learned the truth from an uncle not long after her husband/fathers death.”
