August is my grandmothers uncle. I believe he was 7'3" and a 50 cent piece could fit through his ring :) he toured with a circus and lived in California. he eventually moved to Oregon and lived with his brother prince where he passed away. He was indeed the tallest sheriff in the US at that time. His overalls, ring, and hat are in the Wessington Springs museum. Let me know if there's anything you want to know, I can try and find out!
