VoxFox Help: need Blind Oscar Moore info (9) BLIND OSCAR MOORE. 23 Jan 02

This past summer I picked up this little booklet at a yardsale entitled "Blind Oscar, A Living Phonograph. Oscar Moore'sManual of Useful Information, together with his Songs and Recitations. The most Wonderful Phenomena of this Century. The Mental Wonder of the World." It says that he was born in Waco, Texas,August 19, 1885. My question is; Who is he and can anyone tell me about him or lead me to a site with info? There are some songs in this book that I can't find in the DT and some I did find but with slight variations. I'll post if anyone is interested. The titles are: "Teddie", "Fifty Cents","Love's Old Sweet Song"," The Message" (not the one in DT), "The Picture That Is Turned Toward The Wall", "The Little Old House On The Rhine", "Bid Me Goodbye(Ah! Dimmi Addio)", "Old, And Only In The Way", "Grandfather's Clock", "Can You Tell Me The Reason Why?", "Old Folks At Home", "Annie Laurie", "Rosa Lee; or "Don't Be Foolish, Joe" and "Home, Sweet Home".Thanks for looking.
