In a bizarre and a profound sad story, an Ohio woman married her father on accident and only found out six years after her husband/dad passed away.

According to CNews, an Ohio woman married her father on accident as 60-year-old Valarie Spruill learned the truth of her dad/husband, Percy Spruill, six years after his passing in 2004. Many genealogists and family historians would say that these type of stories aren't unheard of. In an interview with CNN, Valarie stated, ”That conversation didn’t come up. I think if he did know, there is no way he could have told me.” She is currently seeing a therapist to deal with the emotional toll this experience has had on her life.

It is the birth right of every child to know who their father of mother is. Please join genealogist/host Antoinette Harrell and her co-host Dr. Okpara Nosakhere for a discussion on this topic.
