The 1900 census has a Hossie Woods living with his parents Robert and Mollie near Memphis, listed as born in January 1887. Tennessee death records have a Hosea J. Woods, identified as a musician, listed as born January 12, 1889 and the son of a Robert and Mollie -- whose maiden name was Estes.

BTW, if so, the possibility that Hosea was older than Gus Cannon remains, since Gus was listed as 41 in the 1930 census.

Sorry, Jan. 19! The WWI draft card and the death record both say Jan. 19.
