I may have the information you are looking for. I believe the Trapeze Artist you are talking about is my great-great uncle. I was looking through some old files of my and remember my mom talking about one of my relatives being a trapeze artist (though I don't know if he wife was). His name was John E. Ernst born 1886. His wife's name was Norine M. Loretta. I also have a Radcliff (maybe one of my cousins is Carol Radcliff) Another intresting thing about this part of my family is that one John and Norine's daughter (they had two daughters and one son I believe) married Burt Lancaster, the actor. I hope this is the information your looking for. Good luck on your search.
