John Ross and Christopher ARE BIOLOGICAL COUSINS

Postby cbruns71471 » Fri Jun 15, 2012 10:47 am

I hope that they do, in fact, touch on the point that Chris and John Ross are indeed cousins but not through Ewing blood but through Shephard blood. Christopher's biological mother is Kristen Shephard - Sue Ellen's baby sister. After she died sue ellen has guardianship over Christopher and allowed Bobby & Pam to adopt him. So it eerks me when John Ross says - we're not cousins b/c Chris is Sue Ellen's nephew BY BLOOD!

Christopher Ewing was born Christopher Shepard, the son of Kristin Shepard in 1981. Initially, Kristin claimed that her rich and powerful brother-in-law, Texas oil man, J.R. Ewing was the father of her son. Shortly after his birth, Christopher's birth mother, Kristin, died at Southfork Ranch, the home of the Ewings. Christopher was then sold to Bobby Ewing by a man named Jeff Farraday. Bobby intended to deliver Christopher to J.R., as Bobby believed J.R. was the father, but Bobby's wife, Pamela, mistakenly believed that Bobby had brought the child home for them to adopt, as she was unable to have children of her own. Bobby and Pam then legally adopted Christopher and the truth was later revelead that J.R. was not Christopher's father and that his true father was Jeff Farraday, the man who sold Christopher to Bobby and who had married Kristin. Prior to this discovery, Jeff met an untimely death due to his involvement in drug dealing. In 1983, Christopher's parents separated and divorced and Christopher lived with his adopted mother, Pam, while visiting adopted father, Bobby, on the weekends. In 1986, Christopher's family was reunited when his parents remarried, but their happiness was short-lived. The next year, Jenna Wade, Bobby's former fiancee, gave birth to Bobby's son, Lucas, and Christopher learned that he was adopted and not the biological son of Bobby and Pam. Shortly thereafter, Pam was involved in a horrible disfiguring car accident, which required her to be hospitalized, bandaged and require numerous plastic surgeries. Not wanting to be a burden to her husband and son, Pam left Dallas to seek treatment elsewhere, divorcing Bobby in the process and severing ties with her family. Shortly thereafter, Christopher's adoption by Bobby was challenged in court by Christopher's biological paternal aunt, Lisa Alden, sister of Jeff Farraday, who had learned that Bobby had initially and illegally bought Christopher. After a painful court battle, the court sided with Bobby and Christopher remained in the custody of his father. in 1990, Bobby wed April Stevens and Christopher looked forward to having a new step-mother. However, a happy family life was not to be as April was murdered on her honeymoon to Bobby. Bobby then raised Christopher as a single father until Christopher reached adulthood.

Yes that is so true.


But, isn't JR Chris's father? He and Kristen had an affair? So they are really half brothers.

So Jenna Wade and Bobby never married? (trying to fit Ann into the picture)?

Also, where is Bobby's bio son Lucas?


Thanks for the 411...Interesting....

Kristen lied about JR being the dad to avoid going to jail for shooting him. She said to him - what would the world think to know that Jock Ewings grand child was born in jail - what would that do to the Ewing empire. So Sue Ellen, JR and Kristen kept it quiet to the outside world that she was the one who shot him. It was a while later that they discoverd JR was not Christopher's biological father.

So where is Lucas?

Did Jenna take him and raise him with her daughter from someone else (Charlie, her name, I think)??

I hope Jenna (Prisilla) comes back. I am loving Ann, but love the interplay from the veteran characters. How fun it would be to see Chris deal with a 'bio' brother from Bobby. Maybe being a part of Pam's Barnes family wouldn't be so bad after all.

Kristin WAS pregnant with JR's baby when she left Dallas but then she miscarried it after she arrived in CA. She quickly got pregnant again by Jeff Farraday so they could con JR into thinking that Christopher was his son.

I thought JR was Christopher's father. Jr and Kristen had an affair.
