My Grandmother’s father dipped town when my grandma was young (1912?). The circus (Barnum & Bailey) happened to be in town then. The family always thought he ran away with the circus. Is there any way to verify this? (Info I have: Keokuk, IA, last name Ainsworth, played trumpet. I think it was around 1912, but could have been later up to 1914?)
