Case 586. 
Fig. 4.—The central figure on this chart is an epileptic woman, who 
has spent much of her life in the almshouse. No two of her seven children 
are by the same father. The epileptic daughter (now a patient at “ The 
Village ”), whose father was a feeble-minded alcoholic man, had started 
to lead the same unchaste life as her mother. In the almshouse she had 
given birth to one illegitimate child before she was placed under state care. 
The mother, when she last left the almshouse, went to live in a hut in the 
woods with a feeble-minded man, who had three feeble-minded sons. One 
of these sons married the feeble-minded sister of one of the epileptic 
patients at “The Village.” E, epileptic; F, feeble-minded; N, normal; 
T, tubercular; d, died; b, born; .... illegal union. 
Case 4172. 
Fig- 5-—The central mating in this chart is of a feebleminded man and 
a feeble-minded woman, each of whom was married more than once. The 
three children resulting from this union were all defective, two feeble­ 
minded and one epileptic. The mother’s relatives show a history of 
insanity, suicide, and epilepsy. E, epileptic; F, feeble-minded; A, alco­ 
holic; I, insane; N, normal; d, died; inf, infancy.F 2
