Will you do a search for Koo Koo…Minnie Woolsey ? Am working on it myself but I’m new to this & Minnie Woolsey would seem to be a fairly typical late 19th ccentury name. I would think that being mentally disabled details of her life & death would be documented but such does not seem to be the case. Thanks !
Thanks so much for all your great research on sword swallower Mimi Garneau!
My name is Dan Meyer and I’m the historical researcher who has been researching Mimi Garneau for the Sword Swallower’s Association Intl since 2001. I also happen to be a sword swallower and own most of those photos of Mimi and one of Mimi’s swords here in Tampa.
However, I have not been able to locate Mimi’s grave here in Tampa,
or her companion Woody Woodrow F. Dutton (d. 1985 in Tampa).
Would love any help you might have to put the final details on her bio!
Here’s Mimi’s updated bio:
Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!
All the best,
President, Historical Researcher

Hi! My sisters and I are related to Mimi through the Adam’s branch. https://sadiesprattwaynemooresenior.wordpress.com/2014/06/18/mary-adams-alverna-spratts-mother/
Have you learned anything else about the Adams? Thank you for this blog piece!!!

Great to hear from more family! Sorry, but I didn’t spend a ton of time on the Adams side. I had gotten as far as Alverna’s daughter Sarah but stopped there. With all my blog research I can’t spend a ton of time on any one tree, and most of the time, it’s not really that pertinent to the story. That’s why I ended up researching Mimi’s family a little more after family contacted me. I am waiting for the day though when one blog’s research ends up tying into another.
For now, my research is on hiatus. We are moving to Colorado this summer and are busy prepping our house for sale. I sure miss the research though.
I know you’re quest was Mimi’s family, but thought I’d ask. I reached deadends – no clue who my great grandfather really was 🙂 Enjoy Colorado and thank you for your reply!
Email me your direct line and I’ll see what i can find. I’ve enjoyed working this tree.
