Can anyone point me to sources of information on John Barton King?
He was a bowler for the Philadelphia Cricket Club.

On the 1908(?) tour of the Philly CC to England, he topped the First
Class bowling averages, ahead of luminaries such as Wilf Rhodes etc.

I don't know much about him other than the fact that he was America's
"demon" bowler, real FAST by all accounts.
