Today, we'll discuss something that seems to be unlikely but is actually true. We'll be discussing a woman who shocked the world with her body years ago. She astonished the world when she entered it with four legs and two private parts.
She was born on May 12, 1868, and died on May 6, 1928. Her name was Josephine Myrtle Corbin. She was a dipygus-born American sideshow artist. As a result of her body axis fracturing as it formed, she had two different pelvises side by side from the waist down.
One of her outer legs was matched with one of her smaller inner legs. Her inner legs were said to be able to drive, but they were too frail to walk.
Even with her illness, she married at a young age. She married James Clinton Bicknell at the age of 19 and had four daughters and a son with him.
Dr. Lewis Whaley, the doctor who found her condition when she was pregnant, discovered that the external duplication of her reproductive organs was mirrored by an internal duplication. Mrs. B. was found to be pregnant in her left uterus, according to him. She and her daughter, along with her husband, are shown in the photo below.
Three of her children were said to be born from one set of her organs, while the other two were said to be born from the other.
