Four Birthdays Four Generations

01.04.12 | Bob Price

          Jan. 4 birthdays have been running in one Ohio family for four generations.  Richard Stiff of the Toledo area turned 65 today.  The day is also the 34th birthday of his daughter, Julia .... and it's the first birthday of Julia's daughter, Courtney.
          The string began with Stiff's late father, Marshall who was born on Jan. 4, 1924.  All four family members arrived in this world on Jan. 4 through unscheduled, natural births.
          The birthdays have traditionally been celebrated with one cake and one singing of "happy birthday."
