Example text

2 Cousin marriage was a common practice during colonial times, especially among wealthy planters who wished to keep the family's property intact, to be shared only among members of the clan. As a result of a common genetic trait for deafness, Thomas Bolling and Elizabeth Gay Bolling bore three children who were deaf: John (1761-1783), Mary (1765-1826), and Thomas, Jr. (1766-1836). None of the deaf children married; all three were educated. They received their schooling at the Braidwood Academy in Edinburgh, Scotland, the eighteenth century's most famous English- Page 22 language school for deaf children.
