Anmerkungen Discovered by P. T. Barnum at age 4, and stage-named after a fairy tale hero, this midget was a natural performer and comedian. Thumb quickly learned how to dance, sing, and act, and enjoyed delighting a crowd with his antics. He was highly successful and became very wealthy. In 1863, he married Lavinia Warren Bump, another of Barnum's midget performers. SFPALM
