October Ten or more lists - Babies

Erin, who writes a genealogy blog called "beehive genealogy" has made October the tenth month/ten things list for her theme.  I like what she is doing for Mondays and so I too will use her theme for my family.

She writes, "In keeping with my Ten Things for the Tenth Month theme, every Monday in October I am going to feature a woman in my family tree who had ten or more babies. I have a lot of respect for these women, and the difficulties they must have had carrying and raising so many children."

I present Martha Patet Glewwe, my great-grandma on my father's side.  She had 16 children.

  1. Ida Freida Glewwe ( 1893 - 1960)
  2. Anna Helen Glewwe ( 1894 - 1941)
  3. Henry G Glewwe ( 1895 - 1896)
  4. Lilly Glewwe ( 1896 - 1896)
  5. Unnamed Glewwe ( 1897 - 1897)
  6. Lille Glewwe ( 1898 - 1898)
  7. Martha Glewwe ( 1899 - 1960 )
  8. Marie Gertrude Glewwe ( 1901 - 1977)
  9. Alma Ruth Glewwe ( 1902 - 1982)
  10. Reuben Benjamin Glewwe ( 1904 - 1986)
  11. Esther Ethel Glewwe ( 1906 - 2000)
  12. Edwin Harold Glewwe ( 1908 - 1987)
  13. Mabel Florence Glewwe ( 1909 - 2006)
  14. Zelma Rose Glewwe ( 1912 - 1990)
  15. Wesley Paul Glewwe ( 1914 - 2000)
  16. Ruth Henrietta Glewwe ( 1915 - 1995)
