Right off the bat, I’ll tell you this is a confusing clan. A man named Moses was married twice, and I’m blood-related to both of his wives. His son from his first wife had a daughter named Rachel. His son from his second wife married that same Rachel. It was that marriage that produced Abigail, who later became me. So Moses’ granddaughter was also his daughter-in-law. Close family.
