Potter/Walker/Duckett Families

I would like to thank all those who have given me information so I can continue my research. I now would like to know if highclereridley who gave me information on the death of William Potter had any information on his son William George Potter, otherwise William Peters Potter. We were told that he was a contortionist and was married to an American woman named Effie, she was a "wing walker" and died performing her act. We believe he brought shows from America to Melbourne and my older sister remembers being taken to an "after party" when she was 6yrs old that would have been in abt 1940. I have tried to find information about him and these shows but have not had success.
