Fulwiler, Mr. & Mrs. John (Triplets - 2 November 1965)
The second set of Triplets since its opening in 1954 was recorded Tuesday afternoon at Memorial Hospital in Neillsville.
The triplets all girls, were born to Mr. and Mrs. John Fulwiler of Loyal, bringing that family to five children.
The first was born shortly after 1:30 p.m. and weighed four pounds, five ounces. In less than a half hour, came the second at four pounds, 12 ounces; and the third, weighing three pounds, seven ounces.
The larger two girls were to be removed from incubators Wednesday; while the third and smallest will remain in her incubator a while longer. All three girls were reported ‘very active,’ and in good health.
The triplets had been named Wednesday morning, and Mrs. Fulwiler, a vivacious redhead, said that they were named, in order of appearance: Karla Jean, Karyn Ann and Kim Marie.
During the picture taking session, Karyn Ann made a fuss while her two sisters slept peacefully, oblivious to the antics of the photographer. Nurse Paula Mueller said Karyn Ann, the largest of the three, was hungry and that the babies would receive their first nourishment since birth "in a little while."
Mrs. Fulwiler said that she had expected twins, until x-rays taken Monday revealed the triplet births. "My husband wouldn’t believe it," she related. Mrs. Fulwiler said that her father-in-law was a twin; but there were no multiple births in her family insofar as she was aware.
Their father is a food store employee in Loyal; their mother, the former Sherry Davidson of Loyal, is reported fine.
The first set of triplets recorded at Memorial Hospital, were born August 5, 1963, to Mr. and Mrs. LeRoy Schmitz of Rt. 2 Spencer.
