I am looking for any information concerning my great-great uncle Gus Wagner (b. June 1872 d. June 1941), his wife Maude Stevens (b Feb 1877 d. 30 Jan 1961) and their daughter Lotteva Wagner Davis. Gus and Maude were carnival performers; both had their bodies completely tattooed. Gus was also a prolific woodcarver (he carved totem poles and wooden scenes) and a painter. I believe they may have lived in or near Lawton, OK off and on from about the 1930s.They had one daughter, Lotteva who married Russell "Tarzan" Davis who may have been from the Lawton area.Lotteva and Russell were also carnival performers and they may have owned a sign painting business near Lawton.I believe Lotteva may have painted a mural of a western scene in a hospital in Lawton in the late 1950s or early 1960s.
I would love to hear from anyone who may know about them! Thanks, Chris Wagner
