The system of labor and the size of the houses both tend to the breaking up of family groups: the grown children go away as contract hands or migrate to town, the sister goes into service; and so one finds many families with hosts of babies, and many newly married couples, but comparatively few families with half- grown and grown sons and daughters.- "The Souls of Black Folk", W. E. B. Du Bois.
