I wanted to share this picture of the Porter homestead.  This was the home of Martin and Mary Ellen Dutcher Porter.  All eight of their children were born in this home.  Their son, Ellic Spencer Porter lived in the house with his wife, Hazel Clair Hess Porter, where they raised five children.  One of their children, Leslie Porter was born in the house and later lived in the house with his wife, Marie Iola Sutherland.  Although they later moved to Colorado, the Porter Homestead still stands, and is as lovely as ever.

Eight children! When did they have time to take care of the farm and the homestead?  :)
As the children grew, they probably had chores that were related to farming.
