Montet Family

Marie Pothier Montet

Marie and her husband, Florentin Montet. 

When my great-great-great grandmother, Marie Pothier Montet, died in 1910, the local newspaper recorded that she left behind a family of 92 people. I wonder who did the head count.

Just for fun, I thought I’d see if I could come to the same number. Math is fun! I’m assuming that they didn’t count deceased relatives. Also, did they only count her direct descendants? Did they count in laws? This is already getting complicated!
