He's my Great Great Grandfather. He ran Carnivals and toured them around the south. His daughter Theo married my great-grandmother Pearl. They had my grandfather Gene and he, in turn, had my father, Ted.
The carnival lasted until the mid 1990's. I used to go on the road with it as a little girl.
As a coincidence, my family, on my mother's side, is buried in Mount Olivet not far from WH Bill Hames.
