My grandfather had two wives ... ten kids with the first wife (my grandmother) and six kids with the second wife. The oldest child was born in 1927 and the youngest was born in 1962. They were all born in Glace Bay, NS.
The oldest living child is Earl, who is 77 and lives in Victoria, BC, and the youngest living child is Sandra, who at 51 is just five months older than me lives in Verona, ON (just over three hours from Toronto).
