COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – Two identical twins reached a milestone many of us may never make it to—our 99th birthday.

Mary Shipp Harrow and Martha Shipp Averett celebrated their 99th birthday with family and friends at United Temple Missionary Baptist Church in Columbus. They were born on July 2, 1916.

To put things in perspective for you—in 1916, Woodrow Wilson was the President of the United States, World War I was underway, and buying a postage stamp cost you a mere two cents!

Happy Birthday Twins!
