Name[edit]

The page says he was born Thomas James Tune, but his father's last name is Pridemore. Considering the place and time that he was born, an explanation would be in order. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.118.131.30 (talk) 16:32, 16 January 2010 (UTC)

Really good catch! According to this book, p. 252([1] ), his last name was "a shortened form of Tunesmith, the original name of his paternal ancestors who emigrated from England brfore the Revolutionary War. On his mother's side he derived from English and Indian (Shawnee) stock... Jim Tune owned the L&H Machine Works...Tune describes his father.." (from "Broadway, the golden years", (2003), Author Robert Emmet Long, Continuum International Publishing Group, ISBN 0826414621.
I think the reference in the article regarding his father's last name [added later] as "Pridemore" is incorrect and if no one else changes it, I will do so later today.JeanColumbia (talk) 16:48, 16 January 2010 (UTC)
Changed as promised.JeanColumbia (talk) 12:33, 17 January 2010 (UTC)
