If you can lay hands on them, there are articles about him in Blues Unlimited Magazine (UK, now defunct, but libraries may have) issues # 90 and 96.

Not the usual melody for "Peace in the Valley". This one appears to have been taken from the old country music weeper "Born to Lose" recorded in 1942 by Ted Daffan another steel guitar man.
