Chart of the Clan Chiefs


This is a chart of the line of chieftains from Adam to Ephraim
according to data given in the scriptures.


Except for Isaac, who passed the inheritance before his death... the clan chiefs reigned until their death.
It can be seen from this chart that the reigning chief lived long into the lives of great-grandchildren.
It appears that the inheritors continued to live with the clan chief.
The other sons struck out on their own, started their
own tribes and believed as they wished.
