Strangellous McMorbidly
#J2 in My Macabre McMorbidly Family Portrait Series
Oldest son to Squire Drummel and Lady Hopelyss McMorbidly. He was the pride and joy of his grandfather Judge Malleous. He provided condemned prisoners their choice of final neckwear, custom made to their size and chosen pattern and supplied from his own shop. He was also quite the suave ladies man. No one ever saw those ladies again of course.
There is now a present day mystery as I have uncovered several gentlemen’s dress accessory companies with product names tying back to this deranged maker of menacing final neckwear. One company’s motto, “You’ll leave them breathless in a Strangellous EZ Knot Necktie.” Could this Eldest son have survived the burning of his home a century and a half ago? A dark thought indeed.
The McMorbidly Family Portraits were discovered in a battered and moldy sealed trunk, which had somehow wound up below the root system of a huge black tree on the grounds of McMorbidly Manor (Now in Ruins). With each photo was a mysterious description written in jittery script by persons unknown. The portraits and paper were dated back to the mid to late 1800's. Who was the artist/photographer? How had history forgotten such an infamous and lengthy family legacy? We may never know but pay close attention as each family member and their stories from all their past generations are revealed!
