Frederika Floto married John Reuben King in Steubenville, Ohio about 1900. I know it was after 1904. I have a St Louis Fair coin stamped Ricka Floto Steubenville O. It was one of her most prized posessions. Her memories of the fair were the highlight of her life. My grandfather and Uncle Rube were Engineer and Fireman on the railroad that ran from Pittsburg to St Louis. Uncle Rube got her and the Floto Family free passes to go to the fair.
I have very little other info. and am searching the web for more. The family story was that Ricka run away from the circus and joined our family. She played some instrument and she painted. We have her bamboo easel and I have her worlds fair coin. I am sure we have some of her sketches and artwork in the family home in Ohio.
