Why do lineages daughter out?
How many do? Over what period of time?

Well, the answer is they just do!!!

In my wife's family, William Millest b ~1800 had three sons and one daughter.
Two of the sons had no children.
The remaining son had two daughters and one son.
This son had two sons.
One had one daughter and no sons, and the other four daughters and no sons, one of who is my wife.

The name of Millest has 'daughtered out'.

No sons ... the end of the line!!!
