One person is a brother “of the whole blood” to another, the former being a male, when both are born from the same father and mother. He is a brother “of the half blood” to that other (or half- brother) when the two are born to the same father by different mothers or by the same mother to different fathers. In the civil law, the following distinctions are observed: Two brothers who descend from the same father, but by different mothers, are called “consanguine” brothers. If they have the same mother, but are begotten by different fathers, they are called “uterine” brothers. If they have both the same father and mother, they are denominated brothers “germane.”
