So what does the Notorious Outlaw Jesse James have to do with hidden treasure, Freemasonry, the Knights Templar,  Founding Fathers, and Jewish mysticism? We will find out on this episode of the Wyrd Ink Sessions!

Join Author Hadley Thorne as she meets with the brother/sister writing and research team of  Teresa and Dan Dukes, the Great-Great Grandchildren of Jesse James.

Daniel Duke, the great-great grandson of Jesse James, grew up surrounded by stories of lost outlaw treasures. For more than two decades he has researched the mysteries involving his family, Freemasonry, and the Knights Templar. He lives in Texas.

Teresa F. Duke has spent more than 20 years investigating the truth about Jesse James, her great-great-grandfather, including handwriting analysis, genealogical history, and assisting her mother to compile materials for three books on Jesse James. She lives in Texas

Teresa also rediscovered a photo that shows Jesse attending his own funeral.  So who was buried in 1882?  We will be covering the numerous bank and train robberies across a wide expanse of the country.  Of course, we will try to ascertain where the treasures were hidden. ..

You will want to listen as they methodically unravel the legend surrounding the death of Jesse James, with evidence vetted by qualified experts and civic authorities. They share the journal of their great-great-grandfather, kept from 1871 to 1876 and verified to be written in James’s handwriting. They reveal forensically confirmed photographs of James before and after his supposed killing, including one of James attending his own funeral. Examining James’s life both before and after his faked death, they provide an account of where he lived and who he associated with, including his interactions with secret societies. They compare the contradictory newspaper reports of James’s death with accounts by his family and associates, which support that the man buried as James was actually his cousin, and reveal how James tricked authorities into believing he had been killed.

Further supporting their claim, the authors debunk the DNA test results of the exhumation of James’s body in 1995. The Dukes detail the ways in which the test was fraudulent, an assertion supported by the deputy counselor for Clay County at the time of the testing. Backed by a wealth of evidence, the descendants of Jesse James conclusively prove what really happened to America’s Robin Hood.
