Case J. VI 754 is a well-built, strong, active woman who had many children by her husband Edgar, a distant cousin. (See chart 15.) After this she became promiscuous in her sexual relations for a period of about six years and had one illegitimate child. Some time after her husband's death she married again and is now again bringing forth legitimate children, Her sister, who has always been chaste, married a brother of Edgar. Their father and mother were both licentious. While his wife was separated from him and prostituting, Edgar had immoral relations with his "housekeeper," with young girls who visited at his house, and with his two oldest daughters. For this he was sent to State prison, where he died. Edgar had three sisters who were harlots. [pedigree chart] [caption]Chart 15. A small pedigree showing inheritance of sex offense. The three boys in generaton VI are still young. Sx, licentious.[end caption] Edgar and VI 754 had nine children - three girls and three boys, and three others who died in infancy. The oldest, at 13, had immoral relations with her own father. She became a prostitute, but is married now and chaste. The second was a harlot and also committed incest with her father. She was committed at several times to different institutions, but, after discharge, each time returned to her wayward career. She died at 22. The third girl was 12 when the home was broken by her father's arrest for rape. She was removed from her immoral surroundings, was placed in a good religious home in the Middle West, and at 18 is moral and chaste. The three boys were also removed and placed in good homes in the Middle West, but are troublesome and do not get along well. When older their sexual behavior will be of interest. [end]
