Not only a Mormon thing but a southern thing like in kissin cousins. Plus no one knew who their daddy's were. The Poly's in Mexico who had fled the US with multiple wives and kids later abandoned them to come back to US . Millions of Poly families in many states like Utah, Wyoming, AZ , NM, Idaho and even Canada have no idea who their ancestors are or were. Only with DNA can they sort it all out. Which is why Ancestry is pretty much useless. Some brother and sister marriages were possible because they had no idea .

    Vince, I think it's a Mormon thing, everyone's a cousin. Ernst (2009), p. 95, quotes a David Gillespie, Sr. (1875-1958) letter saying she was 'a Texas lady he [Sundance] had known previously." The... more

      Only issue I have with placing her in Texas as a main background is no one ever said she had a Texas accent For instance, the Etta in BLACKTHORN: "Wha ya tellin'. may?" No indication she spoke like... more

        Okay, I have to say something about Texas accents, being a Texas descendants since the 1870's. Even in the 1800's we didn't all talk like a country bumpkin. There were actually some very fine... more

          "if you be a think'n I don't knows what I'mma talk'n about, well I be a think'n you ain't never been to Texas." That's a whole lot closer to the way Laura Bullion talked than the way Etta probably... more

        Chris, are you saying that Mormons do not statistically have larger families that, say, Catholics, Lutherans, etc. Or are you saying that Cassidy dated his cousin? Or didn't date his cousin at all,... more

      A very ignorant statement about Mormons. Must be a fake news thing.
      • Analyzing a joke is like dissecting a frog . . .Daniel Buck, Thu Jan 4 1:42pm
        Lighten up. The jest does have a factual basis. Mormons have larger families, thus more cousins. Modern era Mormons, per a recent Pew study, have almost a third more children than the next most... more

          So now it is a joke. Classy! The Pew study has nothing to do with your reference that all Mormons are cousins. You are just trying to cover up what you really meant. If you believe in the Old... more

        I'm not sure what issue of National Enquirer you are getting your info from. Your slander is not appreciated.
