THUMB, Tom [1838-1883] -- American showman, a dwarf, "General"
A dwarf of less than 40 inches stature,
he was discovered as a boy by the showman ¤P. T. Barnum
and hired as one of his principal attractions.
They toured all over the world and
was presented to the crowned heads of Europe.
Stratton and Barnum, who became life-long friends, were both cousins of mine
-- and cousins of each other! (see
