I was considering making a similar post about a different family. I am looking at the Benedict family which has the brown eye/blue eye trait combined with occassional deadfness in one or both ears, and often very early graying of hair. These Benedicts mysteriously appear and disappear. I can't seem to trace them by name, so how about the outstanding trait? A child can be blond with brillant blue eyes and deaf, and pass the brown/blue eye to offspring. The brown eye/blue eye parent can pass any or al traits to their children. It is called The Warrdenburg Syndrome.

I'm looking for Benedict decendents or people with mysterious secrets and rumored name changes in their familes seeming to be going to, or coming from Iowa and Illinois.
