I come from Hugo.OK and Wanda Moore's post caught my eye. My family were all circus performers they were called the Gallagher Troupe. Hugo is winter quarters for the circus, they call us Circus City USA, would like to see more pics if you have some. My moms name is Mugsy and one of my Aunts was Gala Shawn ( Tiny) we know the Rawls


From Buckles
I remember the Gallaghers well from my early days in Hugo, especially Mugsy, Bonnie and Tiny.
Is your father Corky Clark? I remember when they were with Herb Walters in 1952. Lots of memories.

The "Gallagher" troop.
Also toured with the Gil Gray show. My dad spoke of them often when I was a kid. I used to ride my bike from the fair grounds in Hugo down to Mugs's joint and get a soda also stopped by and BSed with Bonnie and her daughter when they ran a game joint at the state fair of TX while we worked the Gil Gray Dr Pepper Circus. Also worked with and was quite acquainted with Miss Gala Shawn AKA Tiny,I recall Tiny's Kids Mark and Louie,then came Della,Vicky and Isabella.
