I too have quite a few ancestors who at ages in their 60's father children,
mostly the wives were in 30 - 40 range though. Not every old man with a
younger wife was cockholed...David. And remember no birth control so.....
babies into their 40s - 50s.... so lived some didn't, some were also
probably downs syndrome too... but back to the subject i too think the line
is the Presidents too...
Wasn't his wife sickly... the considerate thing was a mistress, although a
slave wouldn't be given the choise of mistress or not...In the south it
wasn't talked about but wasn't really frowned upon either...
