Birthday coincidence

I just realised, thanks to the wonders of Facebook, that both my oldest first cousin and my youngest first cousin have birthdays today. The one is about 40 and the other about 20. My mother is the oldest of nine children, and I am the oldest of my grandfather's grandchildren (he was married twice). Altogether there are 22 of us, with I think about 17 in the next generation so far (my own three children, my two nieces, and a dozen offspring of our other cousins). I don't think we have ever all been in the same place at the same time, and there's at least one I haven't seen in twenty-five years.

My father, on the other hand, had only one sister who had no children. Funny how families vary.

Thanks to my father being the second of nine children in his family, and the starting of families being staggered (and due to my being just under 10 years younger than my closest (and now sole) sibling (or as some might say, "an accident")), I have first cousins who range from being 14 years older than me to 8 years younger than me.

My brother shares the same birthday as his oldest grandson - only 59 years apart!
