My grandparents were with the Coleman brothers show for years. I have been doing research for years and finally found a number for the show in Middletown Conn. I spoke with the owners son, he said his father was still alive and he was supposed to get back to me. I never did hear from them, however you might want to try and get the number and call them. I am looking for information on Bay and Sally Tracey. Bay was a sword swallower and boxer. He was a dwarf. Sally was the electrified girl and she was also a contortionist after she became pregnant with my mother. I am looking for any information that I can find, not only on my family connections to the show but for any information on the show as well.
