I’ve been going through the many photo submissions I have trying to sort out which ones will fit in the newsletter and which I will needÂ to post here on the blog. If my count is correct, it appears that this family had twenty children. That is one large family! Thanks for sharing Deb!Â
Attached is a photo of my great-grandparents, Oscar and Anne Martha (Svendsen) Setter and most of their family.Â He emigrated from Norway to Polk County, Wisconsin;Â she is a first-generation Norwegian-American.Â This photo, taken about 1918, has all of their children except the youngest, Anita, who was born in 1919.Â Anne Martha was the mother of all of the children.Â Most people cannot believe that she gave birth to so many.
