TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Jan. 4 birthdays have been running in one Ohio family for four generations.

Richard Stiff of the Toledo area turned 65 on Wednesday. The day is also the 34th birthday of his daughter, Julia Gonyer, and it’s the first birthday of Gonyer’s daughter, Kourtney.

The string began with Stiff’s late father, Marshall Stiff, who was born on Jan. 4, 1924.

The Blade newspaper reports that some people can’t believe it when they learn about all the birthdays on the same day in one family. Others have said it’s kind of creepy.

All four family members arrived on Jan. 4 through unscheduled, natural births.

The birthdays have traditionally been celebrated with one cake and one singing of “Happy Birthday.”
