I would love to know what happened to Harry. He had an interesting life as a vaudeville performer under the name "Harry Atkinson - the Australian Orpheus" performing in the US, UK, Australia and NZ. His specialty was mimicing musical instruments. He was born in Melbourne about 1865, the son of John Fitts and Millicent Blackham and for a short time he was married to my GG Aunt Jessie Thomson. I have traced him as far as 1914 when he was performing in Birkenhead, England but I cannot find any record of him after that. He seems to have lost touch with his family in Australia. Any help would be much appreciated.
