Josephene Myrtle Corbin, the Four-Legged Woman, was born in Lincoln County, Tennessee in 1868. Rather than having a parasitic twin, Myrtle’s extra legs resulted from an even rarer form of conjoined twinning known as dipygus, which gave her two complete bodies from the waist down. She had two small pelves side-by-side, and each of her smaller inner legs was paired with one of her outer legs. She could move the smaller legs but was unable to use them for walking. At the age of 19, she married a doctor named Clinton Bicknell and had four daughters and a son. It has been said that three of her children were born from one set of organs, two from the other. Myrtle died on May 6, 1928.

My mother recently passed away in April of this year. This is her and her younger sister, when she was around 15, shortly after brain tumor surgery.

 Part of a collection of old family photographs that were found in my grandmother’s basement. Photo of my great grandmother and my grandfather when he was a little thing. This was probably taken in 1924. Look at his cute little jacket! 
OK, this is last one from the batch, many thanks to wrinkled for sharing and to all of you for enjoying these so much! Apparently today was  a perfect day for submissions, I’m sorry i forgot to post some of them earlier…. and a little note to maggieponders: Audrey Hepburn does not belong to this blog, sorry!
