Family legend has always stated that my gfather was an elephant trainer with the circus. He use to tell stories about a trainwreck where the elephants had him pinned and would not let help get to him. In looking at pics of circus train wrecks I believe I have located him with the Wallace Circus that had a train wreck in Durand Michigan 7 Aug. 1903. Does anyone have any idea of where I could get a handle on employees of this circus in this timeframe, or any other info. All ideas would be most appreciated.
Thank you all in advance.
