This elephant may eventually be the same as Wilhelmina in 1902 worked by Samuel Lockhart:

"Wilhelmina" (Willy) was among the surplus elephants that wound up at Goebel's Lion Farm after the Hagenbeck-Wallace Show folded in 1938.
She was said to have been the last of the Lockhart elephants.
Willams Buckles Woodcock

"In December, the show's elephant Wilhelmina, who was 75 years old and valued at $5,000 died in winterquarters. Her death was attributed to a stroke which was brought about by her old age. She had once been with Ringling. Her body was sent to a Little Rock rendering company."
