Notes for John Henry Holbrook, Jr.:
Janice LeMasters read on the internet that John was killed while tending a whiskey still....don't know who did that research, or if someone just thought it sounded like a sign of the times, when bootlegging was common. Michael Flynn confirms this information in his file: "John was killed by the explosion of a still."
