George (1890's-1971) and Willie(1893-2001) Muse
Eko and Iko the Ambassadors from Mars
George and Willie Muse were black albino brothers. They were actually kidnapped by a sideshow promoter and told their mother was dead. They were billed as cannibals, sheep headed men, and ambassadors from Mars. After many years of unpaid sideshow work they were finally tracked down by their mother and they sued for the wages that they were never paid. Although they never got their money, they decided to once again exhibit themselves, and were eventually able to buy their mother a house. George died in 1971, and Willie lived to see his 108th birthday and passed away in 2001.
