From Buckles

This is the back side of the picture I sent you last Friday.
It appears my father was having trouble spelling your grandfather's last name. Mr. Thompson was always called "Red Cap" would the nick name "Cactus" apply to Mr. LeFleur?

I have been trying to get some information on Bob Yerkes. He worked in the circus and was with The Flying Arton's and has done lots of stunts for the movies. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for posting my pics. I've been out sick the past few days and I don't have a computer at home. Sad isn't it?
I don't recall hearing that nickname as a child...I wonder how he would've gotten it??
The spelling of his name is acutally, LaFleur, with an a. I forget sometimes the correct way to place the e and the u.
