Sanger Circus Family History

Surnames: Sanger, Bartlett, Lewis
I have some information that my maternal great grandmother is a granddaughter of the Sangers of the Sanger Circus. She does not appear on any records that I have searched so I am really hoping someone can help me. Her name was Myrtle Phyliss Pink Bartlett and she was born in about 1891. I don't know if Bartlett was her maiden name or if she was married before she married my great grandfather (Charles Lewis). The story goes that she did not like the name Pink so used Phyliss instead. I do know that she was one of 11 children (possibly all girls) and that they were all named after flowers. She had a sister called Daisy. I would very much like to know if she was a desendent of the Sangers and if so who her parents were.

Wow thank you! That certainly does seem to be a very good match. Not sure about the Sanger circus connection but all those girls named after flowers seems to be the right Barletts. Thanks again.
It would be great if anyone knows anything about the familys connection to the Sangers.

I have found out that Ellen Bartlett s maiden name was Baker. I can't find any connection to the Sanger Circus. Does anyone know of any Bakers connected to the Sangers?
