Millie and Christine McCoy (1851-1912) were conjoined twins born into slavery.  They and their mother were sold to a showman, Joseph Smith.  Smith and his wife educated the girls; they eventually could speak five languages, dance, play music, and sing.  They were known as 'The Two Headed Nightingale'.
