Records about Joe Secastin from William "Buckles" Woodcocks Blog at http://www.bucklesw.blogspot.com/
I know an old elephant man named Joe Secastin a contemporary of Conklin, Abby Bates, Bill Emery, Harry Mooney, old Jumbo Scotty and George Denman. He was with the Barnum Show from the time it returned from Europe until the Ringling-Barnum combine.
Several years ago I called to his attention one of your articles in which you mention the "Myraphone". He remembered this musical oddity just as you described it.
The last I heard of Joe, both he and Bill Emery were with three small elephants called Ward's Baby Elephants. I don't keep up with zoos very well but it seems I have heard that these three bulls are now in Breckenridge Park but maybe I am wrong.
