A Plymouth man is trying to right the wrongs of the past. He wants two sisters to get the respect in death they never knew in life.
It's been nearly 25 years since John Reed talked to his old neighbors – sisters Anna and Margaret Rash. He remembers them as friendly old women.
They were also well known throughout Plymouth, but for all the wrong reasons.
Reed says they were made fun of. They had rocks thrown at them, and were known mainly by their nicknames: “Heckle and Jeckle” and “The Apple Twins.”"They were figures in Plymouth history,” Reed said. “Unfortunately, they've got no marker, and I thought it was appropriate to try to get them one.”
Ask nearly anyone in Plymouth about Heckle and Jeckle and they will more than likely tell you about the two old women who were always together and always sitting on their porch.
"They went everywhere together, you wouldn't see them apart," Lorrene VanBlaricom said.
