Records about Patrick Meager from William "Buckles" Woodcocks Blog at
M.J. Meagher, best known as Patsy Forepaugh, was killed at the Columbus, Ohio, winterquarters ("Sellsville"), on Dec 20, 1899, per several newspaper accounts, and not in MSG. One account describes how Sid "hurled the trainer to the ground with his Trunk. The elephant then fell on his victim, pierced Meaghers body with one of his Tusks, on which was a brass ball six inches in diameter." That ball can be seen in this photo.
