More About Jesse James and Lost Treasures of the Knights of the Golden Circle by Dr Roy William Roush Ph. D.
This book includes some startling information that has been brought to light recently that has led to investigating some of the old theories that have been taken for granted. For example: Were Jesse James and his gang members of the KGC? There is now good evidence that they were. Did they also bury some of their stolen loot to add to the KGC treasures that were being buried around the country to finance another Civil War? Again, there is good evidence that they did, especially since Jesse and his gang were devout Southerners. They were still angry over the outcome of the Civil War and were doing all they could to benefit the Confederacy. Did Bob Ford really shoot Jesse James? There is revealing new evidence in this book that he didn't Maybe history should be rewritten And what's the story on the old man who came to Lawton, Oklahoma in 1949. He said that he was the real outlaw, "Jesse James"--and had been living peaceably in Texas for many years under the alias of "J. Frank Dalton." He said that Bob Ford did not kill him, and that the whole thing had been a hoax so that he could escape from the law and Bob could claim the reward; although it was another person that was killed and buried in the grave in Missouri instead of him. The story does seem to fit with the circumstances. And interestingly enough, what does the name "J. Frank Dalton" reveal? It was noted that his body bore many signs that he had indeed lived a very rugged and dangerous life, including 32 scars from bullet wounds, scars around his neck from an attempted hanging, and burn marks around his feet caused by Union Soldiers when they tried to make him reveal where his older brother, Frank, was hiding, but Jesse never told them. Many people who had once known Jesse came to see and talk to the old man, and they all agreed that he really was Jesse James because they said that he knew information and could answer questions that only the real Jesse could have known. This book also shows numerous photos of the old man in Lawton. One chapter gives information about how a treasure hunter found one of the treasures that Jesse and his gang had buried near Lawton, Oklahoma. He found it by using several old maps. His interesting story is told, including photos of two of his maps. Another chapter gives important information on where to look for and how to recognize some KGC treasure signs. The Author can be seen on the recent History Channel's, two-hour special documentary: "Jesse James' Lost Treasure." He was also a consultant for the program.
