Fuck. I remember as a kid, wandering around an old cemetery, and trying to figure out what had happened to families who lost clusters of children (like 3-4 in 12 months.) We could be so much better as a species.

My family genealogy (book) lists males that had 12+ children, of whom only 2-3 survived more than 3 years. Also often by multiple wives, although it's not obvious what percentage died in childbirth.
