Where did these "others"
go and what did they do for a living? Did they do to the cities and
become the butcher, baker and candlestick maker? Did they live on the
land and work it?
I recall hearing that the oldest son got the title and estate, the second
went into the military as an officer, and the third went into the priesthood. I
don't know if that was an absolute rule.
