  • Notes 
    • At the age of 12 he was shot by a school mate that his mother had ordered off the property. Later, he ran away from home to join the circus, running out the kitchen door, taking only a salt cellar as a family momento. As an adult he became a manufacturer's agent for foundry supplies. He died of a heart attack at the age of 60.
