his father was hanged in the early 1950's and his mother died during 1960.
Percy hit the road to avoid being placed in a home and he eventually found his
way to Minnesota.  He became known for his fancy outfits and his baritone voice.
He toured the U. S. and also was welcomed in Europe.  He recorded in 1992,
Highway is My Home in 1995, A Good Woman is Hard to Find
in 1996, and It's My Time in 1997.
