I'm glad the DNA is useful here, but I find myself annoyed by what appears
to be the assumption that because Clarissa didn't marry George Sr. until
1858, George Jr's paternity is some way more in question than if they had
It seems to me that the obvious fact they had been cohabiting and the
children bare the father's name ,,, ah well, forget it<grin>.
