Three years at CWM made me a real traditionalist, and I keep remembering Bob Parkinson saying, "I want the people to see what the circus used to be, not what it is today. That's what this site is about!

Her mother went by the name of Jackie Toliver and did a single trapeze act. She was commonly known as Big Jackie and her daughter as Little Jackie. Her mother would later marry Bandmaster Ellis "Skinny" Goe and she would then go by the name of Jackie Goe. I am not familiar with the name Oliver. Maybe someone could enlighten me. A very nice person to be sure.
