QUINCY, Ill. — An Illinois couple has expanded their family again this year.
Leo and Ruth Zanger just welcomed their 100th grandchild into the family, Jaxton Zanger. He was born April 8.
Leo and Ruth have been married for 59 years. They have 12 children, 53 grandchildren, 46 great-grandchildren and a great-great-grandson.
The family says they’re very close and love to celebrate. When they throw a party, it includes a shopping list with 50 pounds of ham or 10 turkeys.
Because their family is large enough to violate fire codes, they usually host their parties at a church hall.
