SNGF: Children/grandchildren in Matrilineal Lines

Randy Seaver's Saturday Night Genealogy Fun challenge for tonight involves counting the number of children and grandchildren for each woman in your matrilineal line--so mother, mother's mother, mother's mother's mother.....

My matrilineal line:
1.      Nancy Leah Swicegood (1917-1996) had 5 children (1 died in infancy), 2 grandchildren
2.      Molly Fay Brookshire (1894-1966) had 6 children, 15 grandchildren (1 died in infancy)
3.      Nancy Jane Collins (1873-1966) had 3 children, 8 grandchildren
4.      Rebecca Jane Campbell (1842-1882) had 8 children, 25 grandchildren [3 husbands; 3 children died young]
5.      Sarah Anne Crabtree (1817-1856) had 8 children, 30 grandchildren
6.      Rebecca Sally Holeman (1774-185x) had 10 children, no idea how many grandchildren
After a long day of driving, I was too tired to generate outline descendant charts for each woman and seriously study the results. I just looked at each generation in FTM 2014 and added the child counts. I think my research is pretty complete through the 5th generation, but haven't researched most of Rebecca Holeman's children.
