Jotham IV used to work for a big company. Forty-eight years ago he came back from a long trip and told his wife that he wasn't taking any more business trips. They opened a gift and novelties shop in their barn in Woodstock, Connecticut and have operated it ever since.
Their son Jotham V lives across the street in a homestead granted to an ancestor by the king. Their grandson Jotham VI is a marine. Jotham IV's wife Kristin calls them Four, Five and Six.
