    In various Dallas online quizzes, if you answer '3', it is viewed as 'incorrect'. You answer '4' and it's 'correct'.

    As we all know, Ray is, in JR's words, a 'half breed' (no disrespect to the wonderful man), but he IS half Ewing, he just never took the name.

    So do you view there as being 3 Ewing brothers, or 4?

    I think Jock Ewing only had 3 sons, Ray, Bobby and Gary, so there are 3 Ewing brothers. I think JR was Digger's biological son.

    Honest @Angela Channing?

    I have never viewed Ray as a Ewing. Probably because I have spent so much time listening to JR...but he is. I’ve been brainwashed...:rolleyes:

    Ray has just as much Ewing blood in him as JR, Gary or Bobby. Lol

    How is Ray a “half Ewing”? He’s Jock’s son. He isn’t a Southworth, but that doesn’t make him less of a Ewing.

    Jock had four sons (that we know of) but the question was how many brothers. Technically, Ray is a half-brother to the other three (and they are all half-brothers to him) and of course only three of them use the name. But then Sue Ellen did once say "a Ewing is a Ewing . . . is a Krebs."

    I am aware of that yes having been a Dallas fan for many many years. I meant it in the context that we are all half something. Half your mum and half your dad. :rolleyes: I just find it strange that some books/quizzes list 3 brothers and others 4. Which is why I started the thread.

    Ray was as much a Ewing as JR, just not a Southworth at all. In JR’s mind only the children and biological grandchildren (maybe even legitimate and male) of Jock and Ellie were Ewing’s. I’d agree and say there were only three not because I agree with JR but because Ray never took the Ewing name. That was his choice - so Ray was a Krebs in my opinion.
