 William Henry (Hooks) Murtishaw

It has been said that Hooks was a bit of a scandral.  He left Lavona and their baby James Butler, for a black madam, we think her name was Lucy.  He supposedly had a child with the black madam, he was listed on the child's death certificate as the father.  James Butler never knew his father, Hooks.

Hooks raised fighting cocks that were famously known as Murtleshaw Blues and Reds.  Hooks was also married to a Maggie??.  Not sure if they were actually married or not, still looking for records.
