Useing GPR to find a grave
Tue Apr 10, 2018 5:48pm

A few years ago on the subject of finding Billy the Kids grave, I talked to an archeologist that told me he had done that at night and had found evidence of a grave outside of the fence, supposedly a "consecrated" graveyard that had refused any search like that. My question is: other than the cost of such a search, is there any prohibition by the local people of SV to such an undertaking?

            Dan As an adder - A priest can concentrate the ground of a burial. A grave yard can also have two sections within its walls for consecrated ( pre blessed) or unconsecrated grounds. IE: - One section... more

              Mark, Yes, all of those are possibilities. We have two accounts, both second-hand. A.G. Francis said he had heard the two bandits were buried in unconsecrated grounds. Victor J. Hampton said that... more

                So it appears to me to be just a matter of money, time and some organization to mount a search for los gringos, aliens or whoever is planted there. On the tv every week is some reality show like the... more
