Siamese twins born June 24, 1889

In doing research in the 1889 annual report of the Indiana State Board of Health, I came across photographs of conjoined twins--both girls--born on June 24, 1889, to Mr. and Mrs. James H. Jones of Tipton, Hamilton County, Indiana. The Joneses were Quakers; Mrs. Jones was 19 at the time of the babies' births, and they also had a two-year-old child. The babies were joined at the pelvises, each havings its own vital organs, and lived through at least the earliest months of life. The article dated August 1889 accompanying the photographs said they were on exhibit. I'm dying to know if anyone knows what became of these babies. I can't get them out of my mind. If anyone knows, please relieve me of my obsession!
