Ella Harper (c. 1870–1921?), known as the “Camel Girl”, was born with a very rare orthopedic condition that caused her knees to bend backwards, called congenital genu recurvatum. Her preference to walk on all fours resulted in her nickname “Camel Girl”.
Misses Fannie Mills (August 30, 1860 or 1859 – 1899), AKA “The Ohio Big Foot Girl,” she had a disease called Milroy Disease which caused for legs and feet to become gigantic. She was born in Sussex, England and had two sisters.
Both other sisters were born normally. She was married to William Brown in 1886. William was born in 1834 and died in 1904. Fannie was only 39 when she died. She had a baby in August of 1887, but it died. Fannie’s feet got to be 17 inches long, until she died in 1899.
Maurice Tillet (October 23, 1903 – September 4, 1954) was a Russian-born French professional wrestler, better known by his ring name, The French Angel. Tillet was a leading box office draw in the early 1940s and was twice recognized world heavyweight champion by the American Wrestling Association run by Paul Bowser in Boston.
When Tillet was 17, he noticed swelling in his feet, hands, and head, and after visiting a doctor was diagnosed with acromegaly – a condition usually caused by a benign tumor on the pituitary gland, resulting in bone overgrowth and thickening.
Francesco (Frank) A. Lentini (May 18, 1881 – September 22, 1966) was born in Rosolini, Sicily into a family of twelve children (seven sisters and five brothers), well known for having three legs.
Lentini’s deformity was the result of a partially absorbed conjoined twin. The twin was attached to Frank Lentini’s body at the base of his spine and consisted of a pelvis bone, a rudimentary set of male genitalia and a full-sized leg extending from the right side of his body, with a small foot attached to this extra knee. It is recorded that Lentini had sixteen toes in total and two sets of functioning male sexual organs.
Jean Libbera (1884 – 1936), AKA “The Double-Bodied Man,” had his brother, Jacques Libbera, connected to his from his chest-stomach area. He was born in Rome.
The parasitic twin was alive and could move as well. An X-ray showed that there was a head embedded within Jean with a circumference of about six inches. He got married and had four normal children.
