    1. [Crouse] Hannah Crouse Battersby Reputed to be PT Barnum's Fat Lady by The History of the Crouse Family
    2. This is a Message Board Post that is gatewayed to this mailing list. Author: jimcinda2 Surnames: Crouse, Battersby Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.crouse/720/mb.ashx Message Board Post: Page 61-62 in the "History of the Crouse Family of Pennsylvania and Ohio" States that Hannah Crouse was married to John Battersby and was PT Barnum's most outstanding fat lady. I have two obituaries that state that Hannah Battersby's (PT Barnum's Fat Lady) maiden name was Perkins. So I am not so sure about this Crouse Battersby union. https://travsd.wordpress.com/2013/02/14/john-and-hannah-battersby-a-side-show-love-story/ Any one have any clues?
