- "He was a werewolf, your great – great – great – whatever grandfather, Tyler. He got that way by being attacked by a werewolf himself. And he passed his werewolf virus on to the son who was born eight and a half months after he died. Just the way your father passed it on to you."
- —Stefan Salvatore to Tyler Smallwood[src]
Notes and referencesEdit
- ↑ 1.0 1.1 According to Honoria Fell's journal, Jacob Smallwood was attacked by a werewolf on 11 November, meaning that there was a full moon on that date. As the oldest buildings in Fell's Church were built a century and a half before 1991, the night that Jacob was attacked must have been at some point in the mid-to-late 19th century. The only plausible full moon on 11 November occurred in 1852. As Jacob's son was born "eight and a half months" after Jacob was killed, on 20 December, 1852, it can be assumed that his son was born in late July, 1853.
