Houston I 4/39

From Ruby T. Lomax's field notes: "John B. Jones of 1912 Kipling St., Houston, and of Hollywood, California was a student of John A. Lomax at the Texas Agricultural and Mechanical College. He became interested in folk songs and was very helpful in bringing in folk materials. This interest he has kept. At his home in Houston on April 10 Mr. Lomax recorded old tunes with words, some texts incomplete, of songs that Mr. Jones had learned from various sources. His mother, Mrs. Kate W. Jones, who had come to Texas from Mississippi in 1868, also knew and recorded several fragments, mostly children's songs."
