p_elliottgh.jpgAccording to the Internet source given below, George Henry Elliott was an English music hall singer and dancer known as the "Chocolate Coloured Coon" born in Rochdale, Lancashire.
His theatrical family moved to the United States when he was four where he played juvenile parts on stage. He first blacked-up as a member of the Primrose West Minstrels at the age of nine. On returning to Britain in 1901 he performed in music halls debuting in London's Sadler's Wells Theatre in 1902. Influenced by Eugene Stratton, he sang many of Stratton's songs, particularly Lily of Laguna (1898) written and composed by Leslie Stuart. In 1934 he acted in Music Hall which was his only film appearance. In later years he appeared in television variety shows and was the subject of This Is Your Life in 1957.
He died in Rottingdean, near Brighton in Sussex.
