Johnny Eck (1911-1991) was born with sacral agenesis and had no legs. He had a twin brother Robert, seen here.  He walked on his hands and had such a strong upper body he could do a one-armed handstand.  The brothers joined the sideshow at age 12.  They started in a magician's act where Robert was 'sawed in half' and Johnny jumped up and ran about, which was a great hit even though it left some running for the exit.  The brothers never married and retired together in a home in Baltimore.

Grace McDaniels (1888 - August 1958), AKA the "Mule Faced Woman," was born in Numa, Iowa. She was called the Mule faced Woman because, obviously, her face resembled that of a mule's. The reasoning behind this ugly exterior is that she had had lip cancer which caused her lip to swell. After about thirty years, her lip was so swollen that she was able to join a freak show. She was married and had a child. She later retired and moved to Tampa, Florida. She then died of lip cancer in 1958.
