Family genealogical tales confirmed

Yes; there really were those in the family who were, mostly all at the same time, farmers, country hotel- and tavern-keepers, fiddlers, and horse-dealers, for at least two generations. There were two different country hotels, but both in the same county. This has been confirmed by an on-line obituary happened across entirely by chance, for my mother's father's uncle, born in 1870. My grandfather was named after one of his mother's younger brothers. That brother named his son Delos and it must be supposed that it was after the birthplace of Apollo.
