The Four Coincidences Which Linked Two Men

1908 Adams Street, Peoria
Adams Street, Peoria, Illinois 1908
I was looking for something completely different but came across this coincidence story in the archives of the Lewiston Evening Journal.

Peoria Illinois: Two Illinois men born the same year, with the same name are recovering in the same hospital room from the same type of surgery performed by the same doctor.

William Lynch of Havana and William Lynch of Peoria, both 81 and retired, are recovering from urological surgery at St Francis Hospital.

The namesakes had never met before they were inadvertently assigned to hospital Room 245.
