I believe I may be related to you also. My grandmother used to tell me stories about her father Pedro Escalante who was a tight rope catcher in the Escalante Circus. Pedro Escalante married May Leonard and had 4 children: Peter, Marcus, Arthur (who died as a child) and Henrietta (who was also called Anita b. 1926-- my grandmother). She used to tell me stories about her cousin Nick who was a base player (I believe) in Desi's band on "I Love Lucy" and also of another cousin Henry "Blackie" who had a small part in "The Creature From The Black Lagoon". I don't know much about this side of my family other than what my grandmother told me. I do know that Marcus is the only one of her siblings still living. They all grew up in the Los Angeles area.
