Stories of identical twins leading nearly identical lives are often astonishing, but perhaps none more so than those of identical twins born in Ohio.
The twin boys were separated at birth, and adopted by different families. Unknown to each other, both families named the boys James.
Both James' grew up not even knowing of the other, yet both sought law-enforcement training, both had abilities in mechanical drawing and carpentry, and each had married a woman named Linda.
They both had sons whom one named James Alan and the other James Allan.
The twin brothers also divorced their wives and married other women - both named Betty.
They both owned dogs which they named Toy.
45 years after their childhood separation, the two men were reunited to share their amazingly similar lives.
