Re: Pioneers of Jazz: The Story of the Creole Band

Hi Ron,
Once again thank you.Ihad already known about Jimmy Palao.He would have been my grand mother's first cousin.I heard about this book but i never read it.Now thanks to you, Iam going to either buy it or get it from the library.So far some ofthe stuff I read about Jimmy Palao in this book is accurate, but some of the names are sort of different.For instance Inever knew his mom first name was Clotil.In all census records she is always labeled as Rebecca or Rebecca Spriggs.I also did not know that Rebecca died in 1884 which is almost a year after her own dad James Spriggs died. Also according to Jimmy Palao's dad's birth certificate, Felix Palao's mom maiden name was Delarossa not Perrault.However,the stuff it says about Clara Spriggs(Mary Louise) Jimmy's grand mother is basically accurate.
With all of these different and unique findings,this makes my research even more interesting and challenging.

Take Care,

AC Johnson
