My Great Uncle John Lee "Jack" Forcum and his wife Mildred Robinson Forcum, were actors/actress on many boats plying the inland waterways. In early 1919, "Jack" and Mildred toured with a stage play through southern Indiana towns. Mildred's stage-name was "Jeanne Alix". Then they performed and directed stage productions for 26 weeks on the "America", an Ohio River showboat. The "America" was a floater and was pushed by a tugboat. I have been trying to find more info on the America, but with no luck.
