Six generation family keeps growing

FRANKSTON, TX (KLTV) -

This East Texas family keeps growing and growing, and last October they reached to a total of six generations.

If you ask Mrs. Loreana Jones just how big her family is chances are you might need more than a couple of hands to count everyone up.

"Let's see grandmother has 10 children and from there I don't know we're going to have to add them up there are a ton of them,"said Sherri Brumely, fourth generation.

Sherry is fourth generation in this family and said it was her grand-daughter Sadiana that helped the family reach six generations status. A month later, Baby Landon followed.

"We usually add about 3 to 6 babies every year so we knew it was a possibility at some point," said Sherri.

"We were hoping our grandmother would live to see that day and she has and she's a blessing to all of us here," said Glenda Dixon, third generation.

As of now, Mrs. Loreana has 23 grandchildren, 58 great children, 68 great, great grandchildren and 6 great, great great grandchildren.

Most of the family lives in the East Texas area, which is a good thing since great, great, great grandmother Loreana usually has coffee brewing for the family.

"There's coffee everyday at three so you know to come every day if you want to visit because a lot of people are here at 3 everyday," said Sherri.

"There's usually four, five six of us here at night sometimes more and it's just who ever can come is welcome in this house," said Glenda.

The family said they are expecting another great, great great grandchild in the next couple of days.
