Family Relations

My family tree is a little odd as I recounted in my post A Conundrum For You many months ago, so I don’t have any reason to cast aspersions against link-ups in other families, but I am highly intriged by them. The picture with this post is of course first cousins as well as husband and wife Ashley Wilkes and Melanie Hamilton from the movie and book Gone with the Wind.

Leaving the first cousin thing aside for the the moment…are Margaret Mitchell’s characters, Ashley and Melanie, based on her real life cousins……one being the infamous Doc Holiday?

Over at Georgia on My Mind I’ve posted The Hollidays, the Hamiltons, and the Wilkes: Real Connections?

I’d love to have you join me over there.
