Nearing 63, Ohio conjoined brothers mark milestone



Published: Thu, July 3, 2014 @ 3:07 p.m.

BEAVERCREEK, Ohio (AP) — Ohio brothers hoping to be recognized later this year as the world’s oldest conjoined twins plan to celebrate this week as they hit a milestone they’ve been looking forward to for years.

Donnie and Ronnie Galyon of Beavercreek will be 62 years, 8 months and 7 days old on Saturday. They’ll have outlived Eng and Chang Bunker, the famous 19th century “Siamese Twins.”

Ronnie Galyon tells the Dayton Daily News they’ve dreamed about holding a Guinness world record since they were young. That could happen in October, when they could turn 63 and pass the record held by conjoined twins from Italy.

The Galyon brothers live in Beavercreek with their brother and his wife. They spend most of their time in a special bed from a Grand Rapids, Mich., hospital.
