Famous Large Quivers

Disclaimer - not all of these actually HAD large quivers.  Some came from large quivers.  And by quiver I mean family.

George Burns - He was the 9th of 12 children.  He adopted 2 children because he and his wife couldn't conceive.

Mel Gibson was the 6th of 11 children and with his wife had 7 children. I think hes working on #8 with another lady.  I try not to follow the tabloids too much.

Of course the Kennedy's.  Robert and Ethel had 11 children and 30 grandchildren. Robert,  the son of Joseph and Rose Kennedy, was 1 of 9.

Mozart had 6 children, but only 2 survived infancy.  Likewise Beethoven was one of 7,  but only he and 2 brothers survived infancy. 

Martin Sheen was the 7th of 10 children.  He went on to have 4 of his own.

Bob Hope had 6 brothers. He and his wife adopted 4 children. 

Wyatt Earp was one of 8 and also had 2 half siblings.  His father was the 3rd of 10 children.

The Vanderbilts - Cornelius had 13 children and William (son of Cornelius) had 9 children. Its a large family tree that includes people like Anderson Cooper.  

Kirk Douglas had 6 sisters and went on to have 4 children of his own.

Macaulay Culkin was the 3rd of 7th children.

Tim Allen has 9 brothers and Sisters.

Glen Campbell is 1 of 12 and with 4 wives has had 8 children.

Kirk Cameron has 6 kids, 4 of which he adopted.

Bing Crosby was 4th of 7 children and between 2 wives had 7 children of his own. 

Of course the Jacksons of which there are 9.  

I found this blog in my searches and it made me smile.  I especially like this footage.

Don't think anyone today has a big family like that anymore?  Think again!  Here are some real life large families, bigger than mine, like twice as big as mine.  I like teeny tiny compared to some of these guys.

The Arndt's (they have a blog) - 13 boys and 1 girl.

The Jeub's (they have a blog too) - They have 15. 

The Duggars (yes of Duggar fame) - they have 19. 

The Bates (of same Duggar fame)  - they have 17.

The Heppners - they have 17, one of which they adopted.

Lady of Virtue - She has 15.

Kim, from Life in a Shoe - She has 9 (with one on the way) and is one of 14. Today is a particularly good day to visit as she has pics up of her large family.

The Casons - Christi is expecting #16.

There are many others of course, but I don't want to overwhelm you, especially if you are here just to gawk at the crazy lady with all those kids.
