Yeah, I was more horrified when I came across a distant cousin's obit in a Texas newspaper ... and learned that the Ladies of the KKK "hosted" her funeral.

Just ran across another interesting newspaper article, on another distant cousin, where she brought a bastardy suit against the father of her twins. It had the whole thing laid out there in the local paper. The date and place she was impregnated. Wonderful detail. But again ....

Both were in the mid-1900s.

I learned my GGGgrandfater and his best friend between them married all 6 sisters from one family between 1850-1865 while living in Louisiana. After his death, the friend came to Texas with half of his children and the last remaining sister in his household. My icky beats your icky.

I know what the KKK are about. But it doesn't seem like the poster did anything wrong. What exactly were the cousins going to do about it anyway?

Awkward moment in genealogy, finding out that one of my GGG Uncles came home from the Civil War and found his girl married to another one of our family members and murdered them. Yikes. That's horrible, but a funny story from my ex. He was communicating with new found cousins about their family history and they had found a couple of sisters who were their ancestors, and in the census their jobs were listed as debauchery. His new found cousins thought the census said debutantes! My ex had to break the news to them.
