Erasmus Augustus Ennis family, 1898. This is a great picture! There are 14 extremely handsome children. Mom is pretty too. Dad? Well lets just say he looks kind of interesting! He must be reasonably handsome under that hair.

Foster family, 1907. Bessie Foster is one of the little girls, pictured with her parents, two brothers, and two sisters, Ann and Edith.

The Ancient Faces contributor entered this picture a second time with more information and different names for Bessie's sisters:
"This is my grandma Bessie and her family. (She married Omer Clark Tackett and had 7 children with him.)" Pictured in order are: William Newton Foster, Nellie Ann (Ned) Foster, William Foster Sr., Bessie Foster, Sally Ann Robinson Foster, Ollie May Foster, and John Foster. Not in picture are America (William Foster's oldest), De Lois, and lil brother not born yet.

Here are Bessie (from above picture) and her husband, their daughter-in-law, and her five children, left to right: Darlene, baby Joyce, Karen, Joanne, and Alice.

A portrait of the Mutter family, 1890. I wish it were better quality as it looks
so-o-o-o interesting. Matching plain dresses, kids in a long row, etc.

Jim Wileman, wife and ten children

This photo was found in a box of photos which belonged to Mary Virginia Mason Gillam of Huntingdon Co., PA. The photo says "Jim Wileman, wife and ten children" Contributor's aunt Sarah says he was "Virgie's cousin."

This is a photo of Erwin and Dorothy (Steffen) Buelow with their children. I believe this photo was taken in the mid to late 1950s.
