Note from me:  Well that was a Baker's dozen.  The poor women had thirteen children in the space of 29 years and she lived until 1875.  She was truly a hardy woman.  And I don't mean to be nasty about names, but Robert married Glycerian Swazy.  Where in the world did that name come from?  I bet that would be easy to research.
