My GG Grandfather, Lemle Dinkelspiel, had 27 children. His first wife,
Minette Herzog, had 21 children. When she died at the age of 49 he emigrated
from Germany to the USA, brought over and married her widowed sister, Dina,
and they had 6 more children plus one stillborn. Two of Lemle's sons are my
G Grandfathers since, of course, one of their sons married his cousin, the
daughter of the other, and they became my grandparents.
