Hello... Check over the bio of President Buchanan on find-a-grave. I believe you have the "former" and "latter" reversed.

Mr. Butters, Thank you for the bio for Mr. Segar. I live in his hometown of Chester, IL. Several of his cartoon characters were based on local residents. Popeye, Olive Oyl and Wimpy for certain. All three are buried here. Here is a link to Frank Fiegel (Popeye) http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GSln=fiegel&GSfn=frank&GSbyrel=in&GSdyrel=in&GSob=n&GRid=31875462&df=all&
Each year there is a new statue erected in town to honor another character. here is a link; http://www.chesterill.com/index.php?id=71

Hi! Thank you for your wonderful Marx Bros bios. You seem to be one of a few that know of brother Manfred. That and other details prove you've done your homework. I grew up on the Marx Bros. and appreciate seeing such wonderful detail. Thank you so much.
