98-year-old Kentucky woman with over 230 great-great-grandchildren meets her great-great-great-grandchild for the first time in amazing photo with 6 generations in it

MaeDell Taylor Hawkins, a 98-year-old matriarch from Kentucky, met her first great-great-great-grandchild in her large family for the first time this past February.
She held seven-month-old Zhavia Whitaker in her arms and granddaughter Gracie Snow Howell captured the moment in a photo that has become viral. MaeDell has over 620 grandkids today from her own daughters and their descendants.

“It was special because it was all girls,” Gracie, who was in the photo with MaeDell, told People.
The photo shows MaeDell’s daughter Frances Snow, her granddaughters Gracie Snow Howell, her great-granddaughter Jacqueline Ledford and her great-great-granddaughter Jaisline Wilson. Sheryl Blessing, who is Hawkins’ granddaughter, was the photographer.

MaeDell will celebrate her 99th birthday in July.

She got married in 1940, when she was 16 years old, to a 50-year-old railroad worker who had 10 kids from a previous relationship, according to Fox News.

Her husband, Bill Taylor, was often away for his job. They still had 13 kids together, Gracie said, and they lived without many modern amenities. They did not have a washer and a dryer or running water.

“She never complained about anything, even though she had a hard life,” Gracie told People.

Gracie also said that her mother, Frances, never complained about not having anything in their family home.

The photo of 6 generations of women shows that MaeDell’s love and support have resulted in generations of women and children who are healthy and happy.
Gracie said to Fox News that they planned to reunite in June and take another photo if the baby, Grandma and everyone else were healthy and well. Fox reported that the matriarch from Kentucky had 106 grandkids, 222 great-grandkids, 234 great-great-grandkids and 37 great-great-great-grandkids who lived all over the US.
