Wish I could take credit for the Orton info, sorry wasn't me. I would like also to get more info on Orton Circus as well. I will be going to my Aunt's home { Miles Orton's Great Granddaughter,Sylvia's Orton's Daughter, my Aunt :)} to get Orton Family photos and history in the near future. Probably a couple months, they are away to Arizona for the winter. I will share what photos and dates I can gather with you all! Sylvia Orton Harsh passsed away at age 90 November 8,2006.

Just a side note.... I didn't know that the Orton's had a connection with the Cole Bros. Circus ( Mary Ann Cole and Miles Orton) and here I had a baby boy 3 years ago I names Cole!
