Looking For Information On Joe Wilton/Joseph Whelpton

I am doing an article for the next issue of the Delmar Historical and Arts Society newsletter on Joe Wilton/ Joseph Whelpton. Joe Whelpton lived in Delmar around 1950. He wrote an a weekly article in the Bi-State Weekly in that time period under the name of Joe Wilton which was also his stage name. Born around 1885, in the 1920's and thru 1940 he was in vaudeville crisscrossing America doing comedy acts and producing his own shows. He had a wife named Lulu and three children a daughter Jean, son Peter and son Joe. I am looking for information on what he did when he was in Delmar. Where did he go and why did he go.
