Geocache Description:

The current home of Seth B. Howes.

Seth Benedict Howes was born 1815 in Brewster, Putnam, New York, USA, son to Daniel Howes (decendant of John de Huse in UK) and Ruhamah Reed. Seth B. Howes performed as teenager in Circuses, together with his brother Nathan Howes, who funded a circus in 1811. Later, in association with P. T. Barnum, he managed Barnums first europan tour 1850-1853. Seth B. Howes retired in 1870, and died 1901 in Southeast, Putnam, New York, USA.

1852: Imported 10 or 11 elephants with Barnum. Seth B. Howes, on his own account, imported eleven elephants and set to work organizing the largest show as yet seen here for the season of 1852. Howes induced P. T. Barnum to join in the venture, although he then had his hands full in managing Jennie Lind. Barnum at first demurred against the alliance for monetary reasons, having $100,000 tied up as security for his contract with the "Swedish Nightingale." Howes, who was not looking for capital, wanted Barnum, his popularity, his pen and his name and P. T. was aamitted to the firm without putting up a cent.The Circus in the Days of Old, by Charles H.
