Twins??? Nope.

Here is a bonus post for today, especially since we don’t plan to post a story tomorrow on Memorial Day.

Are they twins?  They certainly look like it.  The man on the right would be celebrating his 171st birthday today if he was still alive.  His name was Heinrich Theodore Hemmann.  The man on the left was Heinrich’s older brother, Joseph.  We have the photo on the left on display at our museum.  When I found the photo of Heinrich on the right, I had to hurry to the museum to see if it was the same one we have on display.  It is not, but they are awfully similar.  So no, they are not twins, but they are indeed two members of the Hemmann Herd which we wrote about in the post The Beginning of the Hemmann Herd.
