Peg Leg Sam

Peg Leg Sam Lost John Live 1965 - YouTubeArthur Jackson, known as Peg Leg Sam (December 28, 1911 – October 27, 1977) was an American country blues harmonicist, singer and comedian. He recorded “Fox Chase” and “John Henry” and worked in medicine shows. He gained his nickname following an accident whilst hoboing in 1930. Arthur Jackson was born in Jonesville, South Carolina, the fourth of six children of David Jackson, a farmer and native of Virginia, and Emma Jackson. His paternal great-grandmother, Racheal Williams, was born 1810 in Virginia and was commonly referred to as a mulatto. She may have had a white mother or father (more likely a white father, as would have been more typical of the period). See for more.
