Subject: RE: Leadbelly's birthday (20 January 1889)
Are you really sure about Leadbelly's date of birth? Obviously, there seems to be no consensus in respect to other sources like...
Blues : 21.1.1885
Wikipedia (statistics on 1889): 29.1.1889
Wikipedia (article): 23.1.1888
"The Leadbelly Web": 29.1.1885
The Handbook of Texas online: 21.1.1888

Who is right?

Leadbelly (but this is co-incidence, sorry)
