    "It was rumored that Rebecca and Daniel’s fourth child, Jemima, was not fathered by Daniel but by his brother Edward. Daniel had been gone for two years on a long hunt, and Rebecca, thinking him dead, had a relationship with his brother. When Daniel arrived home after being held captive by Native Americans, he found Rebecca pregnant with his brother’s child. Rebecca explained that in missing him she had turned to his brother, who looked very much like Daniel. Baby Jemima was accepted by Daniel as his own, and became one of his favorite children."
