WOW!! What a story! To think I've been twiddling my thumbs for months, without any sense of urgency, wondering if there was an answer out there and if so, who to ask. And then I ask the question and get an answer in 12 hours! Thank you so much!
My gg-grandfather's actions, which had seemed incomprehensible, suddenly make a tragic sort of sense. My only problem is that now I have to stretch a great big hole in his story, in order to fit in this other one. Not the worst problem for a writer to have, however.
