Many of the descendants of the Muscheon/Legant/Fougere family of Huguenots who maintained Maritime trade between the East/West Indies, Europe and Middle Colonies during the 1600s, are carriers of the “Blue Blood/Pictish Gene”. So far we can identify three main branches of the family who settled in Scandinavia (Musteen/Muscheon), Ireland (Leggat/Legant), and Kentucky (Fugate/Fougere).
Methemoglobinemia results in a blue tint to the skin (particularly lips and nail beds) and can lead to blue baby syndrome (babies born blue but with otherwise healthy Apgar scores). Although this trait usually fades during infancy, population bottlenecks where cousins frequently intermarry may give rise to a race of people who have blue skin permanently. This bottleneck phenomenon has been documented in Finland, Ireland, and Kentucky.
Almoustine and I are carrier of this trait and can trace my lineage to the Muscheon/Musteen branch of the family from Virginia, with ties to the East Indies, Madagascar, and Haiti. My family tree links to both Fougere and Legant (all documented carriers of this trait). Anyone interested in helping me to research this united lineage may contact me via comments to this website.
