weird coincidences

I had noticed, years ago, that I had two male cousins, within a few years of each other in age (one on each side of my tree). They each got married to Mexican-American women (one born in Mexico and naturalized, the other born in the US). They met these women in California. They had 1 son each, and both sons are named B.

That, I knew. And that was sort of an odd coincidence. Today, I noticed that they both went to Nevada to get married.

A real head-scratcher. It's not like this is particularly odd, but to have sort of book-end cousins on either side of the family is at least interesting. I doubt it would have ever occurred to me, except for the single-son-named-B. factor.
