They also had a brother Clayton Snow who appeared with Elvira after Jenny Lee died. Born in Georgia, they were sometimes managed by their brother, Cliff Snow. Elvira's birthdate was March 2, 1901, and Jenny Lee was said to be 12 years younger, but this is still open to further research.
Both performed throughout the 1920s and 30s at The World Circus Sideshow in Coney Island. Jenny Lee passed away in 1934 at just 20 years old, and Elvira died in 1976 at age 75.
