Story ran in our local paper, too. Boggles the mind, doesn't it? What a family reunion that would make.

Cannot help but adding this. Some 7 years ago at a baptism the grandfather told me the child was his 124th grandchild! (TRUE!). Since that he has been at some more and I think they might be over 140 by now... And YES he and his wife had a lot of children themselves!
