DB absent in VA in the early part of 1781; Rebecca bore Nathan on 3/2/1781. Two of their married daughters also had new babies at the same time. <When the new father-grandfather returned, he was presented with a row of all the babies available and challenged to identify his own. Family tradition avers that he picked the right one. It was probably this innocent domestic prank that accidentally set afloat the cruel story about Rebecca's alleged illegitimate child.> Citing 6S151 in BAKELESS:260
