Gary, I was just looking at my messages. I could not believe you reply to my email. Trying to get information on the Escalante Family is very hard. I have started a family tree page and I have trace McPherson family back to Scotland. Chris McPherson my husband Uncle was married to Louise Escalante. You might know Christalee, her daughter. I am hoping to add the Escalante family to the McPherson Family Tree. Please if you could mail direct and help me work on the family tree (Escalante). Christalee has emailed me few pictures, I you could help me with names and pictures it would be wonderful.
Thank you Erlene
I am an author writing an historical fiction aimed at younger, (tweens) readers. I have an idea that involves a traveling Mexican circus. Though this is not the main focus of the story, I would like to research traveling Mexican Circuses, especially those that crossed back and forth between the US and Mexico, to help nail down authentic details. Any help or redirection or naming of source material, or actual books would be most appreciated.
The Circo Escalante Hnos. was out in 1930 playing Oakland, Calif. Aug 1 to 4. The Ecalanate Bros. Mexican Circus of 1931 played Oakland, Calif. Aug 15 to 17. These two dates are from a list of circuses that played in the San Francisco Area. In 1945 The Circo Escalante played May 15 & 16 at Pomona, Calif; May 17 & 18 at Los Angeles, Calif.; July 24 to 26 at Oxnard, Calif; July 29 to 31 at Santa Barbara, Calif; Aug 1 & 2 at Taft, Calif, Aug 3 & 4 at Bakersfield, Calif, and Aug. 5 & 6 at Delano, Calif. All of these dates are from Billboard references. In 1946 Circo Escalante played Aug 6 & 7 at Hayward, Calif; Aug 8 at Fruitvale, Calif; Aug 9 at Vallejo, Calif; Aug 10 & 11 Richmond, Calif; Aug 12 at Vacaville, Calif, and Aug 13 & 14 at Sacramento, Calif. These notes come from the Charlie Campbell route sheets that were issued.
