The good Captain could have adopted a stepdaughter if he desired to create the legal relationships flowing naturally from the blood relationship. Based on my experience, few stepchildren would have used the verbiage Bountysdaughter did in describing herself.

I am not saying it is not possible, just a bit odd. Of course, later-in-life marriages and blended families in the U.S. have blurred many legal distinctions in the eyes of some in these kinds of families.
So what are you saying here James? What is the purpose of this post?

Are you saying you dont beleive her?

Why would you post this? What is its purpose other than an attempt to discredit BountyDaughter?

You are out of bounds again, This is an example of rude behavior.
