Having a twin who is an exact replica of you is unquestionably unique. But living next to a twin for a century? That only adds to the strangeness! Mary Bell Roach and May Bell Powell are better known as the Wallace Twins. The twins were born on March 25, 1922, in Kentucky, where they still reside today.

When the men return from war, their wives purchase mobile homes on wheels so that they can all travel across the country together. The strange women have visited all 50 states as well as eight European countries. They’ve also taken six cruises together. This couple is still full of life despite the fact that they are both 100 years old. Roach claims that the women are still very strong despite the fact that their wives are no longer alive.
They walk about 30 minutes to the gym every day, and you can meet them at the hair salon every Friday. Roach and Powell have just moved into the same room so that they can assist each other in the middle of the night if necessary. “We’re always together and have never been apart,” Roach says. “That’s all we know about loving each other,” they admitted.
