From Tolkien Gateway
By the way, where is it stated that Déagol was Sméagol's cousin? In the LoTR D. is told to be his friend, in the Letters (#214, p. 292) Tolkien mentions that Déagol was "evidently a relative", but cousin??? Foster says so in The Complete Guide to Middle-earth, but I haven't found his source.
- I think that comes from the original copy-paste from Wikipedia. You can remove it if you like. --Narfil Palùrfalas 09:40, 8 August 2007 (EDT)
