|The newlyweds ~ 1949|
Grandmama wanted to have four children before she turned 25, which she did. She really wanted a little boy and, after three girls, she met that goal as well. By the time they were 55, they had nine grandchildren, 7 girls and 2 boys – all born within 11 years. Presently, at age 83, they have 13 great-grands, with another due this month (the oldest of which will be 10 this year).
