Hello all. I'm not sure if this is the right forum, but I have a query to see if any of you know anything about something that might be termed the "Josh White" mystery.

I'm not sure if it's Josh White or Josh Whyte or some other spelling, but someone told me that they read something about this years ago, but web searching proved fruitless in finding out any information about it.

What he told me was that there was supposedly this family living in New Jersey, each member of which was born with six fingers on each hand instead of the usual five. Nobody knew from where they came, and they supposedly spoke in a unique language. This is all he could tell me. Does this ring a bell to anyone?

I've never heard of it. But it slightly reminds me of the blue people of Kentucky.

Interesting story... even more so by the conclusion:


Scott's Alaskans seemed to match Cawein's blue people. If the condition were inherited as a recessive trait, it would appear most often in an inbred line.


Brother and Sisters = Blue babies.

Genetically inbred populations of hominoids can have more than 5 fingers or toes, or even less such as the The Ostrich people of Africa.

What? I have never heard of this. Forgive me for derailing, I just need to know a bit more. Take me to another thread if need be but I would like to see something about these giants that were found so close to where I live. Why have I never heard of them? Where are they now? When were they found?

Interesting replies. I'm sure the story is related to/in the same category as the examples provided, but I still wonder if anybody knows anything about this specific family. Thanks guys/gals.

6 fingers and 6 toes is rare but not that unusual. Don't have an immediate reference but there is a large extended family in Saudi Arabia where members commonly have 6 fingers.
