my grandmother and her siblings - early 1920's?

12 children in all - 8 boys in a row (the first 2 died in infancy, the 3rd of a ruptured appendix at the age of 26) followed by 4 girls. A fairly prosperous farm family in Northern Pennsylvania - all were offered 2 years of college or a registered holstein cow - my grandma's twin, Lora, was the only one who took the cow.
