He died 15 Feb 1951 in Fresno County, Calif. at 82 or 86yrs.
He supposedly moved to Arkansas when very young - his mother died -
his father remarried, then his father died when John was 12yrs, and
he left home at that time.This would have been about 1881.
He showed up in Chicota, Lamar County, Texas in 1895 where he married
Delilah Ann Stanford 18 Dec 1895.Where he was between 1881 and 1895
(26 yrs) no one knows.
A few days before he died he told his sons that his real name was
not John Henry Brown, but was really Joe Hooker.
