      I worked with the Brasfield family when they were putting on "Toby" comedies in 1934-35 and have wondered what happened to all their family members. I cannot remember his wife's name, but their daughter was Bonnie. I have seen the page on his brother Rod, but never met him although I can remember him talking about Rod. Boob had a photo album and he would show us pictures of the billboards in NY where he had been appearing with some notable actors. Sincerely, TLM

      Mr. Morgan -

      Thank you very much for writing and for sending the picture of Bonnie. I think that "Boob" was also known as "Uncle Cyp" and was married to Neva Greevi (or Green). I don't have any other information on his family. Do you know anything else about Bonnie?

      Michael: No not really. That is why I contacted your site in hopes it would have something on them. I was stage manager in the theatre they played in during the middle 30's I vaguely recalled his wife being Neva, but was not sure. Thayer Roberts was with them and I saw Thayer in New Orleans after WW-II but did not get a chance to talk to him. He was with Sigmond Rhomberg in a musicale " The Desert Song" in N.O. About the only comment I remember him saying was "Too bad what happened to Bonnie" If you do run across any more info please give me a copy. Sincerely. TLM
