Dick Hilburn (1918-1971). billed in the sideshow world as “the Quarter Man”. The name sprang from the fact that he had but one fully developed limb (his right arm). With this appendage, he would get around by pushing himself on a skateboard. Originally from Bladenboro, North Carolina, he exhibited himself in his own sideshow, which also employed Carl Norwood, “The Frog Boy”. Hilburn was also a midway tattoo artist and sign painter.
A popular dime museum attraction from 1891 to 1895 was Bella (or Belle) Carter from Blue Bank, Kentucky, called "The Mare Woman". Born normal, Bella was five years old when a mole in the center of her back began to sprout hair. Carefully cultivated, this hair grew to more than a foot in length and was as silky and shiny as the hair on Bella's head.
