Re: Homer H. Hobson in Indiana
I got the following information from Mr. Hodgini of Ringling Brother Circus.Homer and his family had a bareback riding act with Ringling Brothers Circus.Homer waas said to havd had a bar in Chicagocalled either Hobson's Bar or the Circus BAr from about 1965-1972,He was then then susposed to have moved to the Los Angeles, CA area, Englewood, CA in 1973.The Christopher Dyson Hobson side of the family settled in Arkansas and became railrod men and circus performers.This Homer Hobson is my a 3rd. cousin of a relative of mine Francuis Fuller Hobson.
Christopher Dyson Hobson was born around 1774-1778 in Wold Newton, LIncoln, England.He died in Cly County, Ill. He was married to a Stain ( don't know first name).
I hope some of this helps.I have the letter written to me by Mr. Hodgini.
