In 1957, John Pollock, his wife, Florence Pollock, and their two children, Jacqueline, 6, and Joanna, 11, lived what most would consider to be a perfect life in the town of Hexham, England. This was until tragedy struck. On May 5, 1957, Jacqueline, Joanna, and their friend Anthony Layden were hit by a car and killed while walking to church.
John and Florence were devastated, but held out hope that they would eventually have another child. Their prayers were answered a year later when Florence gave birth to twin girls, Gillian and Jennifer. That”s when things started to get weird for the Pollocks.
While caring for the infants, John noticed something strange: a white line across the forehead of baby Jennifer that mirrored a scar the deceased Jacqueline used to have. And on the back of Jennifer”s leg was a birthmark identical to Jacqueline”s.
Intrigued, they began pulling out old toys for the twins that used to belong to their deceased sisters. The girls were able to properly name every doll and teddy bear. John and Florence started to think that their twins were somehow reincarnations of their deceased daughters.
So the question remains: could the Pollock twins be proof that reincarnation is real?
(via Real Unexplained Mysteries)
John and Florence maintain they never discussed the deaths of their older daughters with the twins until they were much older. There”s no chance the girls were acting out something for their parents. Whether it was reincarnation or a series of bizarre coincidences, I am thoroughly freaked out by the story of the Pollock twins.
