Carol -- I believe that Mary Kate was born there. No she never mentioned Henry Holland to me. I wish she had. Yes she did work for a funeral home there. I will say it again, when we hit the metal vault, I went to them and told them that we had a problem. I saod that Jesse was burried in a wooden box. I was told that when Dewitt Travis gave Estes the Masonic handshake that estes probably went all out on the funeral. Thus the Metal vault. I did not believe this, but they paid no attention . When they put the vault into the small van, I had to push a man from the funeral home out of the way and jump into the van, or else I would not have known where they were taking the body. I was not allowed into the room where the body was until late the next day. My lawyer let people film the proceedings, but when they were through he gathered all the film. I now believe that he had made a deal with someone for the exclusive rights on opening the vault. He told me later on that he had an offer of six thousand dollars for the exclusive rights to the next exhumation. I believe that he had that deal for the first one, but since it was Hollands body it was of no use to them. I recently gave Pete Galik my word that I would not go back for a second exhumation. I will stick to my word. To bad we missed because we would know one way or the other now........... BUD
