Twins Stanger than the Siamese


Author(s):
Abstract:
Sold for $1,000 dollars plus 25% of the proceeds made off exhibition, conjoined twins, Millie and Christine McCoy, were sold less than a year after their birth, to John C. Purvis of South Carolina. Born 11 July 1851, Millie-Christine cycled through several owners and multiple kidnappings. Exhibited worldwide to a variety of audiences, Millie-Christine died in 1912.
