Nitsche family with 8 of 15 children



This is the Nitsche family "with their first 8 children." They had 7 more after. For the source, and the names, see http://www.oocities.com/mcarthrs/Nitschejacobsen.htm

I noted that three of the 15 children died in infancy, and two of them were in the first eight born to this family. So the photo would really be of the oldest eight children rather than the first eight.

The other baby who died was a twin; his surviving twin lived until early adulthood. All the others married.

Having lost a baby boy at birth myself, I can really sympathize with the heartbreak of these losses, though I know my experience of it would have been very different in many other ways.
