It runs in the family

Okay, this may just be a coincidence, but it's still pretty weird:
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 article doesn't note the date of Marshall's death, but if Richard ends up passing away on the same day, Julia and little Kourtney might have something to worry about.

In related news, because I have the sense of humor of a twelve-year-old boy, "Richard Stiff" is my new favorite name.
