Jesse James definitely died at Bob Ford's hand. My great great great great uncle was an undertaker's apprentice at the funeral home mortuary place where Jesse's body was taken. Part of his job was to build the coffin and wash the body. They made him do all the sweaty work because he was an apprentice. If it wasn't Jesse, he would have known it. Western Missouri is like one big small town. People would have known if it was a fake Jesse. And my undertaker uncle stole the necktie Jesse was wearing when his body arrived for washing. It was in our family until WWII.

I was really hoping you'd have "Holland's arm" (a la Bentham's head) at the very end of the video. XD

While I don't believe taxidermy and candles are dangerous, I think many people would also be... nervous... to clean your home.

Ok stupid question. When they find mummies or bodies or historical anything how do they know its how things were done and not just "ahh and here we see prehistoric Susan's home made pottery." or " oh and here we see crazy Joe's mummies he made of his victims" how do they know something represents that entire culture at the time and not just a person of that time?

You forgot the part where his body fell out the bottom of the rotten wooden casket and back into the grave. Years later, they redug his exhumation grave and found his jaw bone. 💀

Here in San Jose, CA we have a mining cemetery that supposedly has a grave for the arm of a miner, Bert Barrett. It's near a former quicksilver mine (now a state park with oodles of miles of hiking trails). The cemetery is nestled in the area of Old Almaden . Just a wee bit o' limb lore for ya! :-)

I was barely paying attention to the video while playing on my phone and then all of the sudden I was caught so off guard by you mentioning my hometown. Granbury is kinda small so I don’t hear it come up much especially in one of my favorite creators videos!

You have to pick someone who died 70 years before you. You'll have to research right before you shuffle off the ol' mortal coil. Or, we could just all be the love child of Betty White and Jesse James.

So I know this comment probably wont be seen but I wonder if you have seen the movie Swiss Army Man. It is a very wierd movie that I think as a mortician you'd have a different appreciation for. Would be an interesting video for you to review the movie.

Have you considered doing a video on unmarked graves in established graveyards? My family owns a graveyard and has seen it happen many times but most people think the only explanation is 'hiding a murder body's, a lot of people aren't aware of people who do this because they cant afford funerals or burials.

It’s as if history is being rewritten . Let’s remove and ban any symbols of the old south . And how about instead of Christopher Columbus being a hero we will now see him as a criminal. In fact let’s just rewrite history altogether until none of us can be offended by it . Thank you social justice warriors. But do keep in mind that cleansing history we are dooming ourselves to repeat it

So I just spent the last week binging every single episode on your channel! I loooooove you and what you do! I've learnt so much from you, and have been able to help my boyfriend a bit with his fear of death. I live in Sweden, so a lot of the things concerning rights and laws about burials don't really apply, I still feel much more informed of so much of the things surrounding death. My dad passed away very suddenly and unexpected 2 years ago, something I've still havent completely recovered from, now its just me and my mom. After watching you I have so many good questions to ask her, to fully get to the bottom of what she wants for her funeral and burial. With dad, we didn't really know at all. We didn't know what questions to ask or anything. I feel much more prepared now and I look forward to more of your videos to keep learning.
Thank you for being you, and doing what you do!

My great great grandfather saved Jesse's life, along with that of his brother, Frank. He was a notorious bushwhacker and we're very proud of him. I usually like your humor, but I find this one offensive. Sorry.

He'd better still be here in Kearney because there are a lot of tourist traps with his name on them around here, including the family farm and the first bank he robbed. People are never willing to accept that their heroes (i.e. psychopaths) are actually dead. See John Dillinger, Jesse James, The Alcatraz escapees, H.H. Holmes etc.

In from the central coast of California, in a small town just south of Paso Robles where Frank James settled down. Way back when it was still the old west a family friend's grandparents owned a small ice cream shop. None other than Jesse would come in for ice cream. Many of Frank James descendants are still in the area. Many of them don't buy the official narrative of Jesse's death. Supposedly he settled down and lived with his brother Frank. I don't know how true that is but it might be fun when all the COVID19 stuff settles down to take a trip out there and talk to some of Frank's defendants. See if they have any old stories passed down from the generations about Jesse and Frank.

Removing something from someones gravesite who has no relation to you is very rude and disrespectful, Id expect nothing less from a snowflake but I would expect more from a "Professional" Mortician and caretaker of the deceased. That flag is what that person fought and died for and quite possibly could have been a black Confederate's gravesite and you disrespected it, LEAVE IT TF ALONE. Its a f**kin cemetery for God sake. Pure ignorance but expected

Hello Caitlin! Just popped in to tell you and the crew that we've been binge watching all your episodes on our internet tv (thus, commenting becomes rather difficult). LOVE the channel, every new video (and old, let's face it, even your 8 year old videos are great) is so packed with excellent references, history, death rites and... well, you're awesome comic timing and gallows humor. Big thanks from us :-)

I love your channel and watch every episode. But I have a question. Did I hear correctly? Are you advocating for the vandalism of veterans graves by removing the flag they fought and died under? Yes they were wrong; However they are veterans and it is private property. No different than any other flag that one is buried under or flies. What if it was a rainbow flag on a grave? Not hating just saying a different point of view. I don't believe we should destroy anyone graves regardless of how we feel right or wrong. Please let me know how you feel about this. By the way love your show and i will continue to advocate for it. Keep up the good work. Thanks.
