The photo below is of the seven English brothers who lived to adulthood.  According to Al English, grandson of Leander Levalcus English and son of Rev. Alvin Bryson English, the seven brothers earned the nickname of “seven devils” because they were quite good fighters.  As brothers they stuck together.  If anyone picked on one of them, the others took care of that person evidently.
