    Ivan – Besides Bill Morris, you could also contact Dot Kelly in Peru, Indiana, wife of Paul Kelly, the other half of the Kelley – Morris Show. Or their son, Eddie Kelley. Dot and Eddie both still live on the old Cole Bros winter quarters in Peru.

    Hi Mr. Henry. I had an Uncle Bill Morris who was part of the Morris Troupe, an acrobatic act, in the mid to late thirties. He also owned a circus in the 50s but I was too young to remember the name of the circus. I am curious about the background of Bill Morris in the Kelly-Morris partnership. Thanks

    My Family owned Kelly Morris Circus. Roy Morris is a first cousin. It was a small show that used telephone promotions. We had Blanche, Troby and Jewel as the main elephants. We also had Dinah that was leased out to the Hoxie show and she died there. Our show had two Liberty acts and my Dad played the organ music for the Acts. Those were the Days.
