I came across this Boston Post newspaper clipping. No date on it...but it looks like its from the early 1900's.

Mother of Nineteen, Thirteen Under Five

PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, Sept. 8. --Railroad rules are made to keep, so when Mrs. Frank Scott of Jewell, Iowa, presented one ticket to a C. B. & Q. train conductor today for herself and 13 children all under five years old, the conductor gasped, but took the ticket. Mrs. Scott carried the family Bible to prove that all the children are her own. She is the mother of 19 children. There are five sets of triplets and two sets of twins. The children occupied five double seats in the train. They were on the way to Regina, Sask.
