  • Notes 
    • July 11, 1994:

      Interview with his daughter, Dee, who now lives in Seattle, WA.

      JTH left Lawton,OK without any good-byes and traveled all over the West, ended up in California.

      Story has it that by accident his brother Quillen ran into him in San Francisco and after recognizing him, he asked BJH if he were his brother and BJH responded by asking his name and when Quillen told him he said,

      "Guess you are my brother". [1]
