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'.  In the 1880s they retired and purchased a small farm.  Millie died of tuberculosis at age 61, with Christine following hours later.  They remain one of the oldest-lived set of conjoined twins.

Centralia PA burned town garbage in a pit. In 1962, the garbage burning got out of control and a massive underground coal fire began.
