I'm a little confused.  It seems you are saying that the identity of the performer on Columbia 294 is not known but is definitely no Vess Ossman and that it was recorded ca. 1901-02.  However, the label mentions Grand Prize St. Louis 1904, so I was assuming that the recording dated from around that period.  Does the recording date from as early as 1901-02?

Ruby Brooks on Climax 294, unknown on Columbia and Manhattan 294. Not Vess 
Ossman, per the Columbia books. This is from that period when dates are only 
being guessed at..likely 1901-2.
