Darryl R. Peebles and Daryl R. Peebles led their lives worlds apart never knowing that they even existed until the USA Darryl searched his name on the Internet.  What these two men discovered has amazed millions of people.  After they finally met, they did a show together called "Darryl, Daryl, and No Larry - Bringing the world together through the magic of Love and Laughter."  They soon discovered that they had led very parallel lives with more similarities than anyone could imagine.  Perhaps no two people have ever had these many similarities.  They even traced their ancestries   back to 1649 near Peebles, Scotland, in the Fife area.  It is most likely that they are first cousins about 13 generations and 300 years apart.

 

 

 

Even an oddity with the mates
