Twelve Living Children Each.

The father of the senior Mr. Wikle, of Cartersville, and a brother, married sisters about the year 1815.  The heads of both families became parents of twelve children, four boys and eight girls.  The two brothers who married the two sisters, and their wives are all dead, but all of the four brothers and eight sisters in both families are yet living, all of them are married and have families.  The grandchildren are numerous, some of whom, sons of Judge Wikle, our Postmaster, are grown and in business.  The oldest child was born in 1816, and the youngest in 1840.  These two brothers died at about the age of sixty, while one of the sisters died three years ago, and the other last year, in her 83d year.
