Stuart Thayer, A History of the Traveling Menagerie

In 1838 Benjamin Brown traveled to the Great Kalahari Desert in Africa with Stebbins June, to purchase giraffes. June left a written account of traveling with the animals and his illness resulting from being bitten by a lion. Brown also wrote of his various illnesses contracted while traveling in the desert. Copies of his correspondence are in the Somers collection. Brown & June returned to America with five giraffes, which were exhibited in New York in the summer of 1840.

1851: In 1851 P. T. Barnum and Seth B. Howes imported (9-11??) elephants from Ceylon, It was the largest Group imported to that time. All of them were placed on Barnums Asiatic Caravan, Museum and Menagerie/P. T. Barnums Grand Colossal Museum and Menagerie from 1851 through 1854, although it would appear that one of them died in 1851 This large import was realized in Ceylon by Stebbins June and Goerge Nutter, the latter was elephant keeper at Menagerie Raymond & Waring, where he took care of the two Asian elephant bulls Virginius and Pizarro, who died in 1847.
