In the book "Sunday Nights At Seven" on page 17 it says that after the Armistice Jack went back to vauderville performing alone and eventually going on the Western Vauderville Circuit.It seems he did this into the twenties. Since being on the vauderville circuit meant going from city to city he may not have had a permanent residence in those years.
