The Absurd Individual
Clownin' for a Livin'
with Ringling Bros/ Shows
Raleigh Wilson, clown with Ringling Bros. last year and re-engaged this season, is putting in his spare time running a printing office in Fairbury, Neb.
The Mizano Troupe of Japanses are concluding their vaudeville time, and will open with Campbell Brothers' shows on April 25, making their eighth consecutive season with this organization.
Raleigh Wilson has about one of the poorest single acts in the business, and he has not met with any success at all. He can not get return dates, and has only two weeks booked between April fools' day and Christmas. Mr. Wilson says so himself. The press and public have been unanimous in roasting him. Wilson has signed with Campbell Brothers as principal clown - his third year with them.
She must be the Alta M. Cobb in 1930 Sidney - a society editor for a newspaper. divorced - widowed sister Ethel Hedlund is living with her.
Kreader, Alta M. married in Box Butte County, Nebraska Cobb, Gilbert A. in 1914.
This might be the same Gilbert A. Cobb, brother of Frank S. Cobb,
sons of Moffitt McKinney and Carrie B. Cobb. Moffit was son of
Amman Cobb, and was treasurer of Lancaster County Nebraska.
And 1900 Cheyenne County John Coleman Kreader is sheriff - with a bunch of kids, including Ethel G - December 1887 and Atta M January 1890 - both born in Nebraska
So the 1910 census in Lincoln Nebraska with Gilbert A. Cobb 29 and Lytly Cobb 19 is a good possibility. Lytty said she had had one child, still living - but none are in the census. The 1911 Lincoln directory saiys "Cobb Gilbert A. (Lytle), moved to Steamboat Springs, Col."
Carol Reay Cobb, born September 9, 1920 in Miami, died March 1924 in Lake Worth, Palm Beach County, Florida. Father Gilbert A. Cobb born in Lincoln, and Alta Kreader, born in Hopkins, Nebraska
Gilbert A. Cobb, born October 12, 1881 in Lincoln, Nebraska, divorced, brick mason, died January 5, 1931 in Mathis, San Patricio County, Texas. The records says he was buried January 18 in Denton , Nebraska
