Frank Gilman and son Harry were with the Johnny Jones Circus. In 1919 Harry had an illusion act. Is this type info available? Also, the wife of Harry, Thelma, was a diver into a tank of water. Is there a roster with the names of this diving team?

Thanks, June Gilman

I do have a copy of the Bob Goldsack Book on the circus and it is a good overall history of the circus but is not much help for those of us who are searching for individuals. It referred to Wild Animal shows but no names for handlers or keepers. I looked for the name Cpt Jim Moore but did not find it.

I noticed your September 2003 question on the Circus History message board regarding the Johnny Jones Circus. Did you happen to get a copy of the Bob Goldsack book that was recommended? I have been looking for information regarding the Johnny Jones Circus. My husband’s father was orphaned at birth on the circus train in 1912 and was raised by a man known as Captain Jim Moore who ran the wild west show in the Johnny Jones Circus. If you have the book, please let me know. Thanks!!!

Johnny J. Jones operated a traveling railroad carnival. At one time it had a back end wild animal show or circus. The best coverage of the show is Bob Goldsack’s book.
