Hi --
Great site. I read the link to the article in Artvoice and thought I'd add one correction about a comment in that publication for you and anyone else who might read it/do research.
At the end of the article is a comment about how the information on the death certificate differs from other sources such as the Social Security application. The most likely reason for the difference is that presumably Pete Hill (or someone in his immediate presence) completed the information on the latter. In contrast, the death certificate information was gained from a co-worker, friend, or relative, not (obviously) from Hill. Do you know the birthdates, birthplaces, and names of the parents for all your friends and co-workers? Having done genealogical research for years, I know that even within families some pay more attention and give more importance to those details than others. Having not seen Hill's death certificate, I don't know who provided the information, but I suspect that the reason the content differs is tied to the informant's own knowledge (or lack thereof) and shouldn't "muddy the waters" of what we've learned via Pete Hill himself.
