More births, so many more, 1913.


It is not something new for twins to be born by all ethnicities, just as is seen in Hawaii nei; however, there perhaps has not been a woman who has given birth to twins three times like the wife of Joe Castro of Kakaako; and the amazing thing is that each time she has given birth to twins, they were always just girls.

This Tuesday, that woman gave birth for the third time her twins, but there has been other times which she has given birth to just a single child; and if you add up all of her children, they total up to twelve, and nine are still living at this time.

Some give birth to twins just one time, while others perhaps twice, but this Portuguese woman is known to have given birth three times to twins; and it would seem that being of her nature, there may come a time that she may give birth to twins once more.
