The Ullman sisters with George Nowak, The Barefoot Man, at the Wyndham Resort this month.

Identical quadruplet sisters, Cathy, Martha, Marion and Helen Ullman, visited the Cayman Islands this month to celebrate their 60th birthdays.

The quadruplets were born on Oct. 12, 1958 in Clawson, Michigan, and weighed 4 pounds each, according to local news reports at the time.

Martha and Marion first visited Grand Cayman in 1979 when they stayed at the old Holiday Inn on Seven Mile Beach, where The Ritz-Carlton is currently located. One of their fondest memories of that early trip is dancing under the stars to the music of the Barefoot Man, Henry Leslie, Harry Johnston and Mark McTaggart.

Since then, Martha and Marion have made several more visits to Cayman. This year, they were joined by Helen and Cathy for the birthday celebrations.

They tracked down Barefoot Man, George Nowak, who now performs at the Wyndham Resort, where he’s been for the last 18 years.

As well as celebrating their own landmark birthdays this year, the sisters had another reason to celebrate. Their mother Julia turned 100 in July.
