A Mother of Twelve

It is a truly remarkable woman to raise a family of twelve children.  Anna Sincavage Burnisky was loved by all of her children and always remembered.  My own Mother mentioned from time to time how she missed her Mother, and this was forty years after her Mother died.  Sigh… and her daughter will do the same. 

One of the most famous stories of Anna Sincavage Burnisky was how she had given birth to one of her  younger ones around the same time as Helen gave birth to her children.  Helen was nervous and unsure as a new Mother, and of course “Mom” was at least on her tenth child.  So Anna Sincavage Burnisky helped her child – she nursed the baby along with her own.  Was that you Joseph? or Anna?

I believe this is Helen, her daugher Anna, Mom and grand-daughters Lynn and Jane (?)
