John T. Greenwood (1830-?) played in Philadelphia in 1855 and traveled throughout the South for ten years. Then for fifty years he toured the North and West as a magician and ventriloquist.


Greenwood was with John Wyman in Philadelphia and received a collection of magical apparatus and marionette figures from Wyman on his death.

He retired to Beloit, Wisconsin and owned about twenty cottages which he rented out.[1]
