EASTON — Two of the surviving brothers from the first triplets born at Easton Memorial Hospital celebrated their 70th birthday at the Talbot County Community Center on June 11.

Brothers Dean Webb Sr. and Donald Webb Sr. enjoyed food, friends, family and gifts during the birthday celebration. They were also given a proclamation from Talbot County for reaching their 70th birthday.

The triplets were born on June 12, 1951, a first for the hospital. Althea Webb-Reynolds, the older sister of the triplets, also claims that Dean, Donald and Douglas Webb were the first African-American triplets born in Talbot County.

The triplets were always close, and all three of them even got married during the same year: 1976. The triplets have four children between the three of them.

Douglas Webb passed away in 1998. Dean Webb lives in Easton and is retired from the Maryland State Highway Administration. Donald Webb, a retired soil conservationist, lives in Baltimore.
