Grace McDaniels (1888 - August 1958), AKA the "Mule Faced Woman," was born in Numa, Iowa. She was called the Mule faced Woman because, obviously, her face resembled that of a mule's. The reasoning behind this ugly exterior is that she had had lip cancer which caused her lip to swell. After about thirty years, her lip was so swollen that she was able to join a freak show. She was married and had a child. She later retired and moved to Tampa, Florida. She then died of lip cancer in 1958.

I thought you should have a look anyway. if you zoom in on the right of the girl you can see the girls face. It would be interesting to find out more.”
