Indeed, there are so many aunts in 8 Cousins that there is a joke about "the Aunt-Hill" where they all reside.
If I remember, besides hypochondriac Aunt Myra, there is another weak and fashion-driven Aunt... Aunt Jane?
We should also comment that LMA herself was an important aunt. Never marrying, she raised and provided for the children of at least one of her sisters (the details are hazy in my mind).
