Have any circus relatives? Barnum & Bailey employees sailing from UK to NYC, 1903 #unitedkingdom

While looking for WOLFSHAUT variants in the EIDB via Steve Morse's
tools, I found and checked into Jennie and Rachel WOOLFSKIN, sisters
from Russia who arrived at Ellis Island on March 1, 1903 on the S.S.
Campania (Cunard Line) >from Liverpool. In looking at the manifest
pages, I was amused to find that they and many other people on the ship
were being sent >from Liverpool to NYC as employees of Barnum & Bailey
(circus, presumably). The rest of the passengers seem well-to-do.

So - if you have any relatives who were in the circus around 1900, check
these manifests... I have no info beyond what's here, and no personal
research interest now that I've ruled Jennie and Rachel out as
WOLFSHAUTs. Hope this helps someone.
