During the 1940s, the Ephriam B. Barker family was the largest in California, with twenty children being born of the same parents. They were a somewhat of a curiosity, and the newspapers and magazines liked doing stories about them. A story in the Sacramento Bee: "There's a place in Lake County, where it overlaps Colusa County, that is a very dangerous area. The kids up there in those mountains play cops and robbers with live ammunition; so if you enter that area, you are doing so at your own risk." And because of their size, situations did come up that were unusual, but they were living in an unusual time and in an unusual place. "Poignant and funny. The Waltons on steroids." -MANUEL GUYOT, local retired know-it-all
