The wife was about 48 or 49 giving birth

I would also like to add, that being the family historian, I have done tons of research on the census'.

If you take a look, you will realize that a good majority of families were big (6 or more kids) and the age span is incredible. Most births appear to have been about 2.5 years apart.... but as the woman (wife) got older, you could see where the children were more spaced out - 3 -4 years apart.

I think the oldest I have ever seen (so far in my family) was the wife about 48 or 49 giving birth. Pretty cool.

About Catherine: I am mom to three grown sons, two grandchildren and two rescue dogs. After years of raising my boys as a single mom, I remarried a wonderful man who had never had a child of his own. Unexpectedly, I found myself pregnant at 49!
Sadly we lost that precious baby at 8 weeks, and decided to try again. Five more losses, turned down for donor egg, foster care and adoption due to my age and losses - we have accepted that there will be no more babies in our house.
