Don't forget Frank Stokes. The style on some if his pieces is the closest to MJH of any of the others.

Also Blind Lemon Jefferson is a great picker. His records remain is scratchy form and his voice is a bit grating--but not as much as Rev Garry Davis. If you listen to the guitar part in some of his stuff (like "See That My Grave is Kept Clean") you can see where Son House's style comes from.
