Oldest Identical Twins

Charlotte Eisgrou and Ann Primack, ages 103 years old are the oldest identical twins alive. Despite their age, both are healthy and strong, surprisingly neither of them are using eye glasses and hearing aid. They both use a cane to walk, but are healthy and independent. Primack even survived ovarian cancer years ago.

Eisgrou moved to South Florida in 1949 followed by Primack in 1971 in Daytona Beach, Florida. They were born two months premature in Chicago on Christmas eve in 1909. They weighed a combined 7 lbs. Since they were born before incubators were invented, they were wrapped in blankets and put in the door of a stove to keep warm, reported the Daily Mail.

While the oldest non-identical twins are Edith Ritchie and Evelyn Middleton from Aberdeenshire, Scotland.
