Source Notes

Robert Jansky quotes him given at psychic fair for September 16, 1906 at 11:47 AM in New Delhi, India. However, in August 2006 this record was downgraded from an "A" Rodden Rating to a "DD" rating based on correspondence from Jim Gorham to PT. Gorham investigated public records, death certificate and Internet sources like IMDB and found that this data is unlikely to be true. It is more likely that he was born in 1921 in Missouri! According to Jim Gorham: IMDB's detailed bios on him ... Show he was born John Roland Redd in St. Louis, Missouri, a musical prodigy at age 2 and one of 7 kids born to Ernest G. Redd and Doshia Johnson. .... Then I checked the 1930 census to see if there was such a family in Missouri at that time. There was indeed a match with the parent's names and with 7 children listed. The 6th youngest was a John R. Redd showing an estimated year of birth as 1922. The family lived in Hannibal, Missouri in 1930 (not St. Louis)." PT notes that social security death index says he was born Sept 16 1921 and died Oct 2 1998
