Taken from Chapter 6: The Colonial Family Colonial families were large. There were several children, and sometimes aunts, uncles and grandparents all lived under one roof. Everyone worked hard. Fathers and older sons hunted wild birds and animals for meat. They planted and harvested crops or worked at a trade. Mothers, aunts, and grandmothers were busy in the house and garden. They took care of the children and made the families candles and soap. They spun yarn or thread with a spinning wheel and wove the thread into a cloth on a wooden loom.
