Sideshow Addition (if you choose) Find A Grave Memorial# 71356943 is Andrew John Stuertz. Some records indicate June 4, 1892 birth, while others list June 4, 1893. I will base his age on the 1893 date since that is what his gravestone reads as well as census records.
1907 worked as Tattooed Boy for T.E. Caffrey's Imperial Dog and Vaudeville Show. (age 13 to 14)
1908 worked as Youngest Tattooed Person with the Gollmer Brothers Sideshow. (age 14 to 15)
1909-1912 worked as Tattooed Boy with the Hagenbeck-Wallace Shows. (age 15 to 19)
1913-1917 worked as Tattooed Man with the Barnum & Bailey Circus. (age 19 to 24)
Andrew then left the sideshow life to become a tattoo artist. He died on May 15, 1962 at age 68.
Here is a link to a picture off the internet of Andrew Stuertz about age 13 being tattooed by Charlie Wagner. I am not sure who would hold the copyright on this. Thank you for your consideration of this addition to your sideshow virtual cemetery.
