Weird Coincidences

HANGING HILL

In 1911 three men were hanged in London for the murder of Sir Edmund Berry at Greenberry Hill. Their names were Green, Berry, and Hill.

THE KILLER TAXI

Two brothers in Bermuda were killed by the same taxi and driver, carrying the same passenger, while they were riding the same moped on the same street-but exactly a year apart. Erskine Lawrence Ebbin and his brother Neville were both 17 when they died.

A BAD ROAD FOR CLATWORTHYS

Frank Clatworthy was driving home to Washford, Somerset, England, from a party in 1974 when his car overturned. An hour later, his identical twin brother, Jack, crashed on the same road returning from the same party.

A DEADLY MOMENT

On January 28, 1975, Charles Davies died at 3:00 A.M. while on vacation at his sister’s house in Leicester, England. When his sister called his home in Leeds to relate the bad news, she was told that Charles’s wife had also died that day—at 3:00 A.M.

SPECIAL THANKS

At age four, Roger Lausier was saved from drowning off a beach at Salem, Massachusetts , by a woman named Alice Blaise. Nine years later, in 1974, on the same beach, Roger paddled his raft into the water and pulled a drowning man from the water. The man was Alice Blaise’s husband.

IDENTICAL TWINS

James Lews of Lima, Ohio, and James Springer of Dayton, Ohio, are identical twins who were separated shortly after birth. Their adoptive parents—who had no knowledge of each other-named their sons James. Each James married and divorced a woman named Linda. Each named his first son James Alan (Allan). Each likes to vacation on the same Florida beach. Both are 6 ft. tall, weigh 180 lb., have the same hobbies, and have had police training. They met for the first time in 1979. when they were 39 years old.
