The Seven Sutherland Sisters have a family history story you have to read to believe.

Seven Sutherland Sisters - born into poverty, these seven sisters made a fortune peddling their hair products via the Barnum and Bailey Circus tour. They were eccentric women, only two of them ever married, and they married much younger men. The sisters lived together all of their lives and eventually died off. The last to go were living in the same poverty they were born into.
"In 1882 the Barnum and Bailey Circus signed a new act for the sideshow. It was called the Seven Sutherland Sisters. The girls — Sarah, Victoria, Isabella, Grace, Naomi, Mary, and Dora — who ranged in age from 18 to 36, would file on stage in white gowns, their dark hair glimmering in the gas lights, and sing a selection of songs. The remarkable bass voice of Naomi was prominent in their rich harmony." Yankee Magazine, April 1982.
