Rex Family Genealogy Forum
My brother just reminded me of a story that has been a part of our family. We were always told that our ancestors came from Florence Italy. Two brothers, one light haired, one dark haired, went to England from Italy. One of these brothers was our ancestor. Also, my g-father and his brother always spoke of the swarthy one, in whispered tones. This "swarthy" one was in a family picture which I am now trying to track down.
So far I haven't found any indication that descendents from Italy existed. I also wonder if the "swarthy one" may have been whispered about for some other reason that isn't talked about in families. However, I am curious to know if anyone is from Florence or has traced Rex descendants to Florence. Or, has anyone had this same story passed down through their family.
