This 98-year-old woman is already a great-great-great grandmother and has… 612 descendants

In Kentucky, USA, a 98-year-old lady met her great-great-great granddaughter for the first time. The photo of the event brings together six generations!

Very large and intergenerational family alert ! We warn you, in this article, there will be a lot of talk about the rear!

MaeDell Taylor Hawkins is the matriarch of a family from Kentucky, and is 98 years old. At this age, we are generally at the stage of a four-generation family, but MaeDell has passed this level a long time ago. Indeed, she is already a great-great-great grandmother, and for quite a while already!

MaeDell married in 1940 when she was 16, to a 50-year-old man who already had 10 children from a previous relationship. Her husband’s ex-wife, Bill Taylor, sadly passed away giving birth to twins. Her husband worked a lot but together they managed to have… 13 children!

Six generations in one photo
The genetic heritage was therefore assured and today, thanks to her descendants who almost all gave birth before their 20th birthday, MaeDell has 106 grandchildren, 222 great-grandchildren, 234 great-great-grandchildren. children and 37 great-great-great-grandchildren.

The latest to date is Zhavia Whitaker, aged 7 months, who was therefore able to meet her great-great-great grandmother on February 24 during her visit to the retirement home where MaeDell resides.

An opportunity to take a photo where we see six generations gathered in the same room. In the photo, we see MaeDell holding her great-great-granddaughter in her arms, surrounded by her daughter Frances Snow, her granddaughter Gracie Snow Howell, her great-granddaughter Jacqueline Ledford and her great-great granddaughter (and therefore mother of the baby), Jaisline Wilson. The photo was taken by Sheryl Blessing, one of MaeDell’s granddaughters.

“We thought it was the perfect, special time because it’s all women,” Gracie told People.

A new family reunion and a new intergenerational photo are planned for the month of July, if everyone is well, when MaeDell turns 99 years old.
