McAskill was also part of Barnum’s Circus, along with Tom Thumb. A photo of the two from EBay:

The article from Adventure has some interesting stories. Not sure how believable they are, but fun to read. Especially the one about the sailors who stole rocks from MacAskill’s field, and the giant’s response. Download it here.
PS: I wonder if the author is the Harold Preece who was Robert E. Howard’s friend? If anyone knows, leave a note in the comments section.
