I so very
much enjoyed watching Ward Hall on American Pickers.
What a story he has to offer. I know that Ward knew
most of the sideshow performers and I purchased his book
a few years ago,
I have two
questions that I believe Ward is the only person of the
face of the earth that can answer.
him for me, if you will:
Broadbent had an illegitimate child. What happened to
McDaniels, the Mule-faced woman: Where is she buried and
where is her son buried?
Thank you in
advance for your help in this and know it is very much
appreciated, and please pass my admiration and gratitude
on to Mr. Hall.
Thank you for
writing. We were the last show Betty Broadbent was with
prior to her retirement.
I am unaware
that Betty ever had child.
Also I have no
information as to where Grace McDaniel or her son Elmer
are buried. It would be helpful to know where they were at
the time of their deaths?
It is possible they are interred at the Greater Tampa
Showman's Assn. Cemetery. Here's a link to
I hope the
information is helpful.
