A remarkable instance of longevity is displayed in the life of Mathias and George Zweck of Beaver Dam, Wisc., and John Zweck of Pittsburg, three brothers, the total of whose ages reaches 251 years. John is the oldest of the trio, being 87 years; George is four years younger, while Mathias is the infant, his age being only 81 years. The brothers are natives of Germany, but have been residents of the United States for the last 54 years. All are married and have children and grandchildren living.
