Untitled comments[edit]

Dick Spottswood hosts a weekly radio show in the Washington DC area known as the "obsolete music hour", and among his listener's favorites is is "Christ Was Born on Christmas Morn", by Frankie half pint Jaxson and the Cotton Top Mountain Sanctified Singers. Spottswood claims that he receives more e-mail about this song than any other. Persons interested in Frankie Jaxson should make a point of hearing the song at least once. -- Hadrian Swall (talk) 20:55, 27 November 2007 (UTC) Hadrian Swall

Name and date of birth[edit]

This source states - on the basis of "the author’s recent research" - that he was born on March 3, 1897, with the name Frank Devera Jackson - as shown on an application for a military headstone in 1953. That may be plausible, but I'm not convinced that is necessarily the same person. Most previous sources - like this and this - give the date of birth of this article's subject as February 3 (different month), 1895 (different year), and his name as Jaxon not Jackson. What has convinced Brian Berger that his research - which seems to be based on one military card - is more reliable than previous research? At least, I think our article should be less certain about the possibilities, and give credence to different sources rather than simply assuming that Berger's research findings are correct.

Eagle and LeBlanc give similar information, I see, so I'll tweak the text a little. Ghmyrtle (talk) 13:04, 25 September 2016 (UTC)
