The bulk of your post was more of the same....nonsense, flawed logic, blind belief in unsubstantiated family folklore, and an absence of anything that actually resembles real records of the people in question. Your statements about recordkeepers and historians is false. Courts routinely accept expert witnesesses, even regarding historical events. Basically, it comes down to a case of records versus family folklore. Family folklore will lose, of course. Even Ferd stated he didn't have the records. "Hearing" about them doesn't validate his statements. That is called Hearsay evidence. Won't stand up against the mound of legal documents which prove them wrong.

As to cost of exhumation and testing....cost is not an object to me, since you will be the one paying for it.
