Seek Steam Calliope Builder Jonathan King
By Mike West

-- forwarded message, please reply to sender and MMD --

Jody, I've been looking for a man that made wonderful calliopes from
scratch.  He used to live in my town, Livonia, New York.

His name was Jonathan King and his last known address was Centerville,
Maryland.  He did his own casting of the whistle bases and fired it
with a boiler that supplied steam for a 40-horsepower engine. Any help
would be appreciated.
