Gene Armstrong (1898 - ?) and Noel Armstrong (1900 - ?)

Geneva and Nola of Anderson, Indiana, who had four elder brothers, were 33 and 31 when their mother died in 1931.

They then switched to dressing as men, explained that they had only recently learned that they were men, and that their mother, desperate for daughters, had raised them as girls. They asked a court to change their names to Noel and Gene.
