Hank Williams was born Hiram Hank Williams near Georgiana, Ala., 17 Oct. 1923. After being taught by a local African-American Rufus Payne and in the Baptist Church to play the guitar and sing, Hank began performing at the age of fourteen.

Although Williams and his music were a national phenomena, his personal life was marred by marriage troubles and alcoholism. Hank died of a heart attack at age 29. His grave, and that of his former wife Audrey, are located in Oakwood Cemetery, Montgomery, Ala.

From the description of Hank Williams collection, 1948-1955. (Unknown). WorldCat record id: 122641016
