Viola E. Myers (6 June 1854 to 24 April 1931) was born in Elk County, Wilcox, Pennsylvania and in the 1870s and 1880s was one of the most prominent bearded woman in the business. She was married to a sideshow ticket taker, Amos Myers. She appears to have worked the sideshow circuit off and on for many years, often doing astrology readings (her profession on US census reports and her death certificate is given as "planet reader").
