Tallest Father Borne To Grave By 6 Giant Sons
UNDERHILL, Vt., Aug. 1. -
Quiet, retiring Hiram Bogue, 78, seven-foot father of the 10 children known as "the tallest family in the world," was borne to his grave today by six stalwart, sorrowing sons.
Seven-foot Max, the only son to equal his father's height, was one of the pallbearers, Leland, Alvin, Howard, and Arthur, each six feet, six inches tall, and Homer, six feet, three inches, were the others. They are the eldest sons.
Services were held in Bogue's Pleasant Valley home and burial was in Underhill Flats cemetery. He died Saturday.
Sitting with their mother, who is only five feet, ten inches tall, were Roy, six feet four, and his sisters, Ida, six feet two, Mrs. Ed. Irish and Mrs. Henry McClelland, each six feet three. All the children live in New England.
Bogue, a farmer, left 16 grandchildren, one of whom already is six feet, seven inches tall.
