Family of 26 Found in Texas Houston, Texas, April. 20. (U.R)—Found by a census taker, the nation's biggest family under under one roof was claimed for Texas tonight. A 60-year-old fisherman and his 58 year old wife have 24 children, all living and all at home in their rural six room frame house. District Supervisor Frank Sharp said the entire family- father, mother, 14 sons and 10 daughters—is in good health. Because census records are confidential confidential Sharp withdrew the family's name. Further information of the family disclosed that: The fisherman and his wife had been married 25 years. There has been one birth a year and there were no multiple births. One child is married, the eldest son, and child No. 25 is expected shortly.'
