I am looking for John Miller who married Harriet Agnes Taylor (parents David Burrows Taylor/Tayleur and Ada Alexandra Knight of Hutchinson and Tayleure circus etc.) in 1915   Would you mind checking for me before and after that time until the end of 1918. Thanks.

Hi there,
I am looking for any information on F.W Oscar Vetter, his wife Rosa and their children. I know that the family were circus artistes and later Music Hall Artistes. F. W Oscar Vetter was born in Berlin, Germany in about 1851. I am not sure when he joined the circus but I know that he married a lady called Rosa Steinbecker and had, according to the 1911 census, seven children.  I only know of  three children. F W was known as Oscar and he has an entry in Turners' Circus guide. I know that in 1911. Oscar was living in London and was about 59 years old. I have found a death certificate for Oscar in German records for 1918 although not the cause of death, but I cannot find any records for Rosa's death in German or in U.K records. Did they emigrate to another country perhaps?  Are there any other circus trapeze artists that I may be related to.  I would also like to try and find out the name of their circus act and possibly which circus they belonged to. If anyone has information about this family, I would love to hear from you.
Thank you.  KarolynM.
