Johnny Eck - The Half Boy

Living Skeleton Rosa Plemons was born in Tulane County, California, in 1873, weighing just one pound at birth. At the age of 19 Rosa was kidnapped from her father and taken on a tour of the United States. A man claiming to be her father told the public he was exhibiting her to earn money for her medical expenses. At the time, she weighed eighteen pounds and was permanently immobilized. Eating was difficult for her as well; it took her caretaker between 30 and 60 minutes to administer a meal.

Violet and Daisy Hilton  "Having spent nearly all of their fortune and struggling to survive, the twins opened a hotdog stand, The Hilton Sisters' Snack Bar, in Miami, in 1955, but the business failed in part due to the objections of fellow vendors who didn't like a pair of freaks stealing their business. Short on cash, having been unable to manage their showbusiness earnings responsibly, the sisters decided to bank on the cult revival of their first movie, Freaks. In 1962 they arranged to…

The girls were taken to America and from early in their careers were headlining Vaudeville productions. At the peak of their career they were said to be earning 5,000 dollars a week.

Living as One    The life expectancy for conjoined twins who are unable to be separated strongly depends on what organs they share. Conjoined twins that share a heart for example have a low survival rate. Ronnie and Donnie Gaylon are currently the world’s oldest living conjoined twins at 61 years old. They have separate stomachs, lungs, and hearts, but share one large intestine and a single set of male reproductive organs. Their longevity is a medical miracle by itself
