I was helping a friend to trace the above Chas Wertz; my friend is now seriously ill in hospital so I'm rushing to find all I can.
Chas was born 17th September 1867 in Fairfield, Jefferson County, Iowa, USA the son of Henry and Sophia Wertz. Charles grew up in Fairfield with older brothers Harry and Fred, and a younger sister Lau. Charles being very gymnastic and as soon as he was old enough he had left Fairfield for Chicago to pursue a career as a gymnast. Soon he was performing as an acrobat for the Barnum and Bailey Circus. On 30th October 1897 Charles left the United States with the Barnum and Bailey Circus to Europe and toured with them across Europe until 1902. In 1899 the circus was in Sunderland where he met Isabella Allen. They married on 1st March 1900 at St. Saviour, London. By 1910 Isabella and Charles were living in Lincoln, Nebraska with Charles' widowed mother.
Isabella met Robert Percival Barron on the liner that arrived in New York on 7 July 1921 and married soon after.
What I am trying to trace is the date and place of death of Chas Wertz, I hope someone can help me, thank you in.
