Commenting on a Genealogical Black Sheep Article Oct9 https://dna-explained.com/2016/02/28/curtis-benjamin-lore-1856-1909-devilishly-handsome-rogue-52-ancestors-113/ Your rogue ancestor reminds me a bit of my husband’s great grandfather who was living with another woman and having several children with her while apparently still married to his (first?) son’s mother. That woman listed herself as a “widow” to him during his lifetime, perhaps to try to avoid the shame. Besides the infidelity and possible bigamy there were several incidents of apparent criminal behavior by the son and grandson. My research is so disorganized currently that I can’t put my hands on the supporting documentation easily, but the newspapers in the DC area of the time carried some very colorful tales about this group: a shooting (accidental?) by a father of his son (in the groin) and of an uncle of a nephew (in the ear), theft, con-man schemes involving jewelry & call girls, various “alias” names to disguise identity, and incarceration of a minor for unknown crimes but a pardon by the Governor of Maryland….black sheep are so interesting to follow/uproot on the family history tree!
