The Cove

Every now and then just when I think I have seen everything in the general area... a friend pops up and asks, have you seen this site? With the deer in the headlight look you respond with as much composure as possible... uh... no...

Well a friend asked me if I had seen this one... WOW! I thought...
Just to give you an idea as to how large the pictographs are at this site, thats me in the pic below, I am 6 foot and 245 lbs... I know... what a tub butt...

You can enlarge the Images by ... You guess it... By CLICKING THE IMAGES.

Photographs By My Sweet Amy



Although the site is heavily riddled with graffiti likely from the locals as it is not a well known site, it still remains to be one of the best I have seen in near 30 years!


This site has some of the largest and well preserved Pictographs I have seen, yet in other places at the site there is extreme fading as in the next few images...




In the remaining photos look closely and you will see that this site is heavily covered with petroglyphs as well.

If you are wondering what the author of the panels at this place intended? Well lets just say it has nothing to do with , Head hunters, beheading, blood letting rituals, of animals or people in fact it has nothing to do with any animal at all... It does have to do with a spiritual Journey and is... should I say it? A Tomb site. There is indication of "hesitationresistance or an unwillingness to enter this journey of eternity, I do not know why the resistance, but I intend to return to the site soon for additional studies to gain further understanding of this unique and spiritual site....

Ain’t no such thing as A One Sided Coin

The following is an exposition of various parts of the book Written by Del Schrader in 1975, Jesse James was One of His Names. Some time ago I was sent a copy of this book, at the time I was somewhat familiar with the claims made in the book and really had no opinion. It wasn’t until a friend of mine found some very implicating carvings in Central Utah of all places, of which we have no doubt was left by Jesse James himself. What was Jesse James doing in Utah? I had heard much about the Confederate underground often referred to as KGC, but a majority of my research focus was pertaining to the indigenous of this land and their origins. However knowing I am a sucker for a mystery to solve, a friend sent me the book written by Del Schrader to review. As I began reading the book my skepticism was in high gear, the claims being made in the book wasn’t helping matters, until I decided to take each as I went through the book, and try to prove or disprove, I had no idea what was to follow, all I can say at this point is that in 1975, without internet capabilities, there is no way this man Del Schrader could have been so accurate, or lucky if you will, on so many points, unless… the things in the book are for at least the most part  true…

No matter how hard I have looked over the many years, regardless of the countless coins that have been minted and passed through my hands, there is a principle liken unto the principles of the very tales of history, and that is, never have I found a coin with only one side.

Some say, that every story has two sides, like this is some great wisdom, but then it is followed up with, the truth lies somewhere in the middle, and this in and of itself may be somewhat true, but likened to two children facing dad to answer for some wrong deed, and are made to fess up to the question of, “What Happened” whose truth will prevail?

When it comes to History one only need consider, who wrote the history and was there a motive at the time, and was it for future purpose? Who was the Victor in this war? Who do you think is going to tell THEIR truth? When it comes to history… I am leery, and often looking at the other side of the coin, it might be blank, badly worn or not well pronounced, but it is a side. If only there was a way to present cutting the baby in half to expose the truth, but if one looks closely, they will see that there is a way… whenever a lie is confronted with truth, the lie will always lash out at the truth.

I wonder what this photo was doing in New Mexico?

With that said, Jesse James, his brother Frank and those of Quantrill’s Raiders, and the purpose and motive of the southern states in the Civil War is grossly misunderstood, misrepresented and perhaps one of the biggest cover-ups this nation has ever seen and yet still…  a blind eye is kept towards… MANY outrages took place on both sides of the coin, atrocities against the African Slaves by some in the south, but heaven forbid, let’s not talk about those done in the north, and especially those done by the black slave owners… Let’s not talk about the methods by which the African people were kidnapped by their own, and sold on their own shores to the Europeans.

It is taught… no dictated… that the Confederacy represented slavery… It is dictated that the north were anti slavery… and in the nicest way I can’t muster… Bull Shit! Keep in mind, my only motive for making such statements is to show those who have an open mind, and feel in their gut, that something just isn’t right, that they may more clearly understand who Jesse was, and what he, his men and the south were up against. Lincoln himself who a majority hail as the greatest president, stuck his foot in his mouth several times over, he was the first president to commit treason against the FREE Republic.

The other side of the coin, the North, following without thought or question the orthodox belief, had no idea and still do not, that they were helping the very foreign powers that  we booted out of here in 1776, Bankers of England, providing them aid to infiltrate our money system, and implement the building blocks of instituting the worst kind of slavery, one without shackles and chains, but with Bondage and Captivity, being brought once again in servitude to the King, or should I say, the puppet of the Bankers. Isn't that what the Revolutionary War was about? Let’s make this easy, take the word Federal which the people have come to accept as if it were almost of holy decent… and replace it with the word Foreign in all that you know and say, and this will just about sum it up.

Jesse, Quantrill and his Raiders and Jesse’s gang of men have gone down in history as a ruthless murderous enemy of the state, YET his BEST and most trustworthy friend, John Trammell, body guard and companion through all of it until they actually died, was a former slave who ran away as a result of being beaten by his master, an act Jesse would have killed the master for, had he witnessed it. John Trammell formerly Sam Skates, born in a primitive cabin on the Porter Plantation in Oglethorpe County, Georgia, between Atlanta and Augusta was in every way as an incredible man as Jesse himself. Jesse’s most faithful followers and supporters were the Native American Indians, Mexican and  the blacks in which he encountered.

DOES IT MAKE SENSE that the southerners were willing to watch their plantations burned to the ground, their women and children violated and burned alive boarded in their churches or houses, all because they refused to give up their slaves? This is propaganda and  ridiculous.

I will quit here as a majority really doesn’t want to know as they are comfortable in what they were taught as the orthodox way. But those of you who do know and really want the truth, will investigate further the implications I have made, however my purpose for the forgoing is to help the reader consider and hopefully understand what Jesse, Frank, Quantrill’s Raiders and the noble men of the south who fought to keep America FREE of financial oppression, were really up against, unfortunately the south lost their cause, and today we are nothing but chattel in bondage and captivity, as a result of the war between the states, the Free Republic established by the founding Fathers, was “utterly overthrown and wasted

My paramount object in this struggle is to save the Union, and is not either to save or to destroy slavery. If I could save the Union without freeing any slave I would do it, and if I could save it by freeing all the slaves I would do it; and if I could save it by freeing some and leaving others alone I would also do that. What I do about slavery, and the colored race, I do because I believe it helps to save the Union; and what I forbear, I forbear because I do not believe it would help to save the Union. I shall do less whenever I shall believe what I am doing hurts the cause, and I shall do more whenever I shall believe doing more will help the cause." (Abraham Lincoln)
"In Saving the Union, I have destroyed the Republic, before me have I the Confederacy which I loathe, but behind me have I the bankers which I fear" (Abraham Lincoln) (Denied by Academics)
"The high office of the President has been used to foment a plot to destroy the freedoms of America and before I leave office, I must inform the Citizen of his plight." -- John F. Kennedy (D) speaking at Columbia University, 10 days before his assassination. (Strongly Denied by Academics) (Lash away, and tell it to those who were there)

FOURTEEN MONROE (LA.) NEWS-STAR NOVEMBER 25, 1954 Ex-Slave, 117, Once Fighter And Gangster DENVER, Colo., Nov. 23 (Special)—John Trammell, 117-year-old ex-slave from Guthrie, Okla., is now undergoing examination at Spears Chiropractic Sanitarium and Hospital here, in connection with the longevity research study being conducted by the Institution. Spears researchers are especially interested in Trammell His has been a life of violence, hardship and poverty — a combination usually associated with brief life spans Trammell, however, survived the Impact of a speeding automobile in 194?, suffering only a broken leg, which healed. This shock, say experts, was sufficient to have killed an average man 50 years Trammell's junior. Prior to the Civil War, Trammel was a bare-knuckle pugilist who fought other slaves at command of his master. Training for these events, he developed a magnificent physique. When freed in 1863 at the age of 25 he joined the Jesse James outlaws and was wounded several times. Since 1882, when the James outfit dissolved, he worked as a laborer and did individual farming. He now raises turkeys and chickens near Guthrie, Though Trammell Is the oldest of four subjects thus far examined, Spears researchers believe there are many older persons to be found in the U. S. and abroad.

Harrison Trow

One of the most mysterious characters in the Jesse saga was the very man whom was credited as positively identifying to dead body of Jesse on April 5th of 1882 in St. Joseph Missouri, Harrison Trow. As history tells it, Captain Harrison Trow was assigned by Governor of Missouri Thomas Theodore Crittenden. According to other history he road with Quantrill’s Raiders, Even Dalton’s book (by Del Schrader) tells a tale of Harrison Trow, which also identify him as the man who stepped in almost as if he just happened to be in the area and said he was sent by the Governor, none of the history writers have ever explained how he just happened to be in the area, and got there so quickly. But what Dalton's book says is that after Jesse shot Charlie Bigelow, that Jesse then changed his appearance and returned to the crime scene as Captain Harrison Trow. IF this were true, it would be the one thing that turns the coin over, gives it definition, throw your loop away, the final nail is firmly set in Charlies Coffin.


Captain Harrison Trow at a Quantrill reunion pre 1900
But wait… This man looks strangely familiar…

I decided to investigate this Captain Harrison Trow just a little closer, like many of the other alias’s Jesse used, I find that some of them were created out of thin air, I say this because you find no record of a birth, no census reports prior to the date in question, nothing showing parents, siblings etc… all the information that is found seems to come from nowhere appearing at the time of the very claim. Surely there would be photos of a man who served Governor Crittenden, the man who went down in history as the man who positively identified the body of the notorious and legendary Jesse James?

Digging a little deeper I find a young energetic female who lived in Blue Springs Missouri, not far from where Jesse not only lived but where he was supposedly killed.

Ana Lee Stacy of Blue Springs Missouri

Let me introduce you to Anna Lee Stacey (Dillenbeck) (Day), a very talented little girl as she love to draw and for the most part was a self-accomplished and a well recognized artist of the day. Born in Glasgow Mo. In the year 1864. 18 years later she is living in Blue Springs about 16 miles east of Kansas City.



Anna Lee (Dillenbeck) Stacey (Artist)

There is some obscurity and mystery as to who she was exactly. Anna Lee seemed to have a fascination of doing portraits of those who served under William Clarke Quantrill (Actual Name, Col. Elbert DeWitt Travis), including Quantrill himself, a Confederate leader of what was known as “Quantrill’s Raider’s” best known for their Guerrilla warfare tactics. I just can’t find how she fits in, possibly one of the many involved sisters, or perhaps wife to one of the many she did charcoal drawing of… Anna Lee has done portraits of Jim, Bob, and Thomas Coleman (Cole) Younger, she has done several of Frank and Jesse, and several other Confederate soldiers, even Charlie Bigelow death photo labeled as Jesse and she has done one portrait of Harrison Trow which we will come back to, who is the man who identified the body of Jesse James who worked under Governor Thomas Crittenden of Missouri said to be Jesse’s school mate and accomplish in staging his own death in 1882. Regardless of who Anna Lee was her fascination or connections has preserved some very interesting implications.

Below are some of the charcoal drawing Anna Lee had done sometime after Jesse’s so called killing, a couple of them are by Elmer Stewart, it is believed she/they reproduced the images from actual photos, such a photo is compared to the charcoal drawing below of William Clarke Quantrill, whose actual name is Elbert DeWitt Travis.

Alexander FRANK James, let it sink in people… this is NOT Jesse



Jesse Woodsen James, NOT Robert, NOT “Dingus

Now lets look at a charcoal drawing done by Anna Lee, of Harrison Trow at the time or very near the time he identified the body of Jesse, unfortunately we do not have the actual photo in which it was done from, it is possible it was done live. Below is a comparison of the only known photo of Harrison Trow with the much younger Trow, done by Anna Lee Stacey with Charcoal.



Do you see it yet? Now I’m not a forensic photo specialist but I feel I have a pretty good eye. And I would have no doubt the two men in the above photo are without a doubt the same man but obviously years apart. Now in Dalton’s book he explains how Jesse after shooting Charlie Bigelow, changed his appearance and arrived on the scene not long after and took control of the situation presenting himself AS, Captain Harrison Trow, now take a good look at the following photo comparisons.


Harrison Trow on the left,
J. Frank Dalton on the right, the man who claimed to be Jesse Woodsen James

However the photo which about knocked my socks off and made me realize, the Book written by Del Schrader, Jesse James was one of his Names, DEFINITELY deserves a much closer look…


Wow…

Jesse James on the left with Charcoal sketch of Harrison Trow on the right


Now earlier I asked what was Jesse doing in the area of Bottomless Lake in New Mexico? Well according to Dalton’s book, it is said that Jesse had considerable property in New Mexico not to mention Dalton’s purported Grandson Orvis Lee Howk is quoted saying that Jesse said He owned a dozen ranches scattered from Texas north through Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Utah, Nevada and Oregon.

Howk says the treasure symbols appear to be everywhere. "I've observed them in Missouri, Illinois, Ohio, Iowa, Minnesota, the Dakotas, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, California, Oregon, Idaho, Washington and even Florida." It is also stated in the book that Jesse kept the Pigeon Ranch at Glorietta pass New Mexico in the early 1900s and it eventually ended up in the hands of the Greer family. I have found the later part to be true but the name in which the Greer’s got the property from is highly suspect of another alias of Jess’s. Walter M. Taber, or William B. Taber, suspect of being the James Brothers. None to my surprise, like the Clarke Brothers of Montana which we will talk about later, they were the proprietors of the Glorieta Mercantile and Livestock Co. Also no big surprise, I cannot find the parents of William B. Taber or Walter M. Taber.


Just over the boarder and a bit south from Glorietta, is Hereford Texas in Deaf Smith county where at the same time and a little over 150 Miles S/W from where the photo above with Jesse, Frank and Mollie was found, Harrison Trow is on record as to owning some 8000 plus acres. And having died in Hereford Texas, no big secret but… what are the astronomical chances that Harrison and Jesse look near identical, almost as if they were the same person…



According to Dalton’s book, Jesse killed off his other primary alias just 6 days after Harrison Trow’s purported death, William A. Clark.


Left to right: Young Jesse, Older Jesse, William A. Clark, Harrison Trow, J. Frank Dalton

It is possible the above image of William A. Clark is one of his doubles, but due to the almost uncontrollable hair wave or cowlick Jesse had in his hair just above the forehead, it is believed it is Jesse.

Who wants to be a treasure finder?



As early as 1529 Spanish mining expeditions were transporting the spoils of mining throughout the west to the many ports in the south. As early as the 1600's many of the Indigenous had organized preparing for a time where in the people of the west and those of the south would rise up against their oppressor, and vanquish them from their county, it would be another 300 years before this would happen however the oppressor just changed their uniform.

Many of the indigenous had organized throughout the west, both north and south the object was to lay assault whenever possible to the many mule trains, this to cut off support of funding hoping to rid their country of these intruders once and for all. The average mule train which passed through the mountains was 50 to 100 mules, one of the largest having been 480 mules loaded, with 400 mules carrying silver and 80 mules carrying gold. This assault took place in the early 1800’s and was quickly cached at their nearby designated depository. Assaults such as these had been taking place for near 300 years, some of the chache locations being natural caverns of which they vowed to fill with gold and other with silver not realizing that one day it would actually happen.

One such depository and stronghold of over 100 years, acquiring much wealth as a result of the robberies of many mule trains which passed by on the way to the port, sets high in the mountains and had all but become a forgotten myth until a “noted historian” in 1912 happened to be in the right place at the right time. While doing some local research he was approached by an individual who had a very old document written by one of the many captains of the organized bands of patriots by the name of Juan Lauriano who with his brother Antonio and their merry band, conducted many assaults on the Spanish shipments contributing to their depository.



One of the primary maps of a stronghold and depository drawn 1814
(pertinent details removed)

The document was discovered near one of the busiest ports of the day, in the day which it was written. The document was discovered by an old Mexican woman digging in her garden, the document was sealed inside a wooden iron bound chest. As per the document it was written the 13th day of May 1818 and hidden in the ground, and would be discovered less than 100 years later. The document speaks of a trail of treasures each with explicit instructions as to how to find, giving a starting location which was not easy to find. The trail of treasure was leading to the stronghold and depository used for so many years.

In 1805 a feeble attempt to find the stronghold with its booty was conducted by Viceroy Don Jose de lturrigaray, confident he knew the location of the Bandits stronghold, he set out for the mountains with 200 mules and an undetermined number of men, and searched for months to no avail. Ironically he and his men camped at the stronghold for 2 or 3 days using it as an outpost and never knowing it was the bandit’s stronghold and location of the depository.



José de Iturrigaray, Viceroy of New Spain (1803-08)

The last attempt by the Spanish army to find the stronghold, the depository and the assailants, was given to General Miguel Jose de Azanza just prior to being named Vicroy of New Spain. After capturing the Lauriano brothers and execution carried out, attempts to find the lost booty as a result of 100 years of assaults came to an end.



In 1918 a woman from Spain showed up in Mexico carrying documents pertaining to the strong hold, she took the information to President Carranza, Carranza impressed with the documents dispatch investigators to the area to gather all possible information pertain to the site, however no sooner than they had arrived they were forced to leave as a result of Obregon’s revolution in 1919, Carranza was killed not long after and the whole thing came to an end, Until, the noted historian was in the area and the redoterro discovered by the old woman, fell into his hands.

                   
Carranza                                                      Obregon

The noted historian suddenly turned treasure hunter, spent near 6 month looking for the treasure at the end of the trail of treasures. In his notes he mentions some of the smaller caches had been found, but not the stronghold, he does not say whether it was he or another who had found the smaller caches, After months of searching, never knowing just how close he was, he aborted his first expedition when the area was invaded by the army of Emiliano Zapata. Bogged down by his livelihood taking assignment after assignment and years later tried to put together funding to make a second trip, but it just didn’t happen.


The army of Emiliano Zapata 

To my knowledge no other has gone looking for the depository, other than an occasional independent who always left without success according to the land owner. Now the information concerning this site rests in my hands and my colleague and friend in Mexico.

Wanted: Financial and Working partner in the search and documentation of Antiquities, Exploration, and Resolution of ancient sites.

Most of the projects we have investigated in over the years and discovered the locations are waiting for technology, the forgoing story is one of 5 projects where in we have exact instructions and location. Funding is all we await. I don’t care how the funding comes or who wishes to participate as long as true integrity is a personal quality, whether one individual or several, I can’t promise success but I can promise should one site not find success, we simply move to the next viable project and there are many (76 Last count) from Northern Utah to Central America, from great prominence to nothing more than first hand story or a location identified by the signs found at the site. In the case of the previous featured synopsis story, I only seek 10% and the land owner by local law is entitled to 50%, the estimated total haul is over 1 billion, this does not include possible Aztec artifacts that are suspect of being among the hoard, of which WILL be preserved and left in the care of my colleague to see that it is placed in a museum for display.

If It Quacks Like a Roman...



Roman Scale Armor from Texas

Having already written about the discovery of Roman artifacts discovered near Tucson Arizona, and written upon the artifacts is a very interesting story in old Latin telling of Roman expeditions arriving here in about 700 A.D. until about 1000 A.D. when they were overthrown by the Toltec, I am left wondering again the reasons why the academic world is so adamant about suppressing the facts. I find it quite comical yet frustrating as I read the various reports which always follow the incredible finds of the past that might upset the academic world current fictitious and orthodox views of the history of this continent.



I have made no secret of the many Spanish exploration documents of the past which I have in my collection which today is no big feat and they are available to anyone who has enough desire to seek them out. I have read these documents over and over and one thing that seemed to slip past me for years but I began to take notice of, was that in reading the words of those who wrote them, it became very clear by the statements made, these people were looking for evidence of previous occupation of past Castilian expeditions in the areas of “the” New Mexico, which included Colorado, Utah, Arizona and a majority of parts of California and Texas. They made notations along the way in these documents, whenever they encountered Castilian Grapes, Flax and Walnuts just to name a few it was noted, how could there be Castilian Walnuts if Castilians were not there prior? and this can be noted in Coronado’s first expedition.

From Coronado’s first expedition into old New Mexico, Alvar Nunez, Marco de Niza and all the way to Antonio de Espejo, it is clear they were looking for evidences of past explorations prior to Columbus’s voyage. To give even more credibility to the many references the academic world seems to never give any heed to the many early maps of the New World, the very names mentioned upon them found also upon the Tucson artifacts, Calicuas (Calalus) and Septimania? Why are some written in Latin and not the old Spanish? Why would the reference of Septimania be on the maps of a culture who existed between 500 AD and 1000 AD? It was a cool name? Did the Cartographer just arbitrarily place the cities and the missing lake whever he wanted to? At the end of the times of old Septimania is the beginning recognition of the Castilian.


How is it that certain cartographers of Spain were able to make such accurate renditions of the illusive lake Copala if they had never seen it? Someone clearly had seen this long before, and even the French Moll map in the rendition of the Lake he never made it to? Lucky I guess.


Lake Uinta Compared

And so it was of no surprise to me, that portions of Scale Armor, which was for the most part discontinued in its usage especially by the Roman Empire by the 13th century, was found in the very regions in which the Tucson artifacts evidences speak of, Western Texas and Northern New Mexico.

It is humorous to read the excuses the academics come up with regarding the reasons they were found here, One individual… excusist? Shall we call them, stated that of the Roman armor scale found in Aztec New Mexico, that is was likely a family air loom brought to the Americas by Coronado or one of his men and lost. What? Of which of you is going to join a Spanish expedition into the savage unknown as a soldier and drag a family air loom along over 3000 miles of sea, and then another 2000 miles north into the savage regions of the Indigenous?


Scales from Aztec New Mexico

Another individual made the statement that it was likely left over armor from the past and used by Spanish soldiers, as it was known that those Spanish soldier had to provide their own armor? Yet of course no references was given to this ridiculous conclusion. I challenge any of the academics to provide written documents stating that the Spanish soldiers who enlisted to join these PAID expeditions with a high expectation of death, were not PROVIDED with all that they needed and required to bring their own armor?

HOWEVER…. I am NOT saying that these two discoveries ARE as result of Roman occupation of the Americas, I AM suggesting that the possibility is there, the likely hood of Armor of any kind surviving the eliments of time, since the Roman colonies came here in 700 A.D. and expelled as late as 1000 A.D. is next to slim, however there is one possible means…

In two primary articles concerning these artifacts, one of them apparently saw the possibility, as reading through it, it would seem the objective was not only to blame their existence on the Spanish, but to completely rule out the possibility of being of Roman origins and this I believe is because they were well aware of the discovery of the controversial Tucson Lead artifacts found in 1927.


Now for a little fun…

Here is one of the Reports, which I find is written in seeming desperation to keep a possible cat in the bag, it was from 1999 HUGH C. ROGERS AND DONALD J. LAROCCA.
The article reads: (Pay attention to the careful but incriminating words chosen by Rogers and Larocca in this intended diversion article)

Six Armor Scales from New Mexico
Probably Spanish, 15th to 16th Century Iron and wool (Dimensions given)… [Probably? This means they might not be, but of course they do not go there… can you say speculation? how about diversion? If not Spanish origin, then who? If the history is correct and the academics know it, why use the word probably?]
These six scales come from a group of approximately three to four hundred recovered from a region of New Mexico that the Spanish explored and later colonized in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. [Of course they had to open with this to get you focused on Spanish which of course is a possibility]
Originally the scales would have been riveted in an overlapping pattern, like shingles, to the outside of a leather or textile jacket (traces of fiber, apparently wool, remain under some of rivet heads).
They are important as the only examples of scale armor to have been found in the new world. [I wonder why that is? I mean if the Spanish were using them, why haven’t others been found? It is unknown whether Rogers and Larocca knew of the Texas find at the time of this article, but make no mistake, they most certainly knew of the Tucson Lead crosses discovered in 1927] They are also interesting because they represent a form of armor that appears to have stopped being used in Europe well before the colonization of the American southwest[about 300 years prior]
Scale armor is an extremely ancient form of defense, with surviving fragments from the Middle East dating as early as about 1700 B.C. In Europe variation of scale armor were used from the Roman period through the end of the Middle Ages. [1300 AD] Full-torso armor of scale went out of fashion after the mid fourteenth century A. D. [None of the other soldiers were wearing them so to get the girls they had to wear the new in style solid armor… Fashion? Really?] But some scaled armor continued to be made and worn in certain circumstances as late as the seventeenth century. [Of course notice there is no reference or evidence to back up this statement, I for one would like to see it]
The coat of scales from which the museums examples must have come was probably [there’s that word again] owned by two or three generations where it was brought to New Mexico presumably [I should say so] on a Spanish expedition of the late sixteenth or seventeenth century. [Those poor soldier being made to go to school in out of style armor, the other soldiers no doubt made fun of them, kidding set aside, this is a possible solution to the presents of this type of armor being found on this continent] The armor was most likely worn by a soldier of modest means who could not afford more up-to date equipment, as was the case with many soldiers who came to the new world to seek their fortune. [in all that I have read regarding the Spanish explorations, I have never seen any suggesting of this, however possible, show me the facts]
You can always tell by the use of words, what the intended purpose of an article is… Why not just call them forgeries? Wouldn’t it have been easier? 


Scale Armor Found in Texas in 1870

Now this other possibility I spoke of early is this…
ONLY two of this type of artifacts have been found, contrary to popular academic belief, hundreds if not thousands of Spaniards have traveled these regions and killed I might add, it just seems to me that if there were SOME Spanish soldiers using this type of armor which even the academics knew had been discontinued in about 1300 A.D. it would seem that MUCH more than two discoveries of it would exist. But it is possible…

One discovery was in North West Texas in 1870, and the other in Aztec New Mexico in 1920. The Texas find was quite well preserved with cloth and leather still intact holding the Armor scale together but the New Mexico discovery was what you would expect to find, with solid but rusted scales with very little evidence of cloth remaining, if it were in fact of the early Spanish occupation.


There is one hypothesis that is no more ridiculous than the excuses offered by the academic write up, in fact I find it to be much more plausible. The indigenous each have their legends of an ancient enemy long before the Spanish, an enemy who were clad in Iron and whose weapons were so terrible their braves would fall to the earth long before their arrows could reach the enemy, many legends of a pale skin enemy of the past exist among them.

If in fact Romans came to this place of which is told by the Tucson artifacts, and the many other corroborating evidences ignored, it is HIGHLY likely that several of these “costa de malla” would have been strewn all over after a battle and if no one ever disturbed them leaving them where they fell, there is NO WAY any of them could have survived the elements of time from 1000 A.D. and today or even 100 years ago there would be nothing left of them. HOWEVER…. Do you think after a battle the indigenous in wonder might have examined the very thing which they noticed protected their enemy? Do you think that several of these were taken and incorporated into their own usage in war? To say no, would be like the United States military finding advanced weaponry of their enemy, and leaving it lie… Do we have evidence of this? Yes we do… and if the Indigenous gathered up these advantages in war, they would most likely have stored them in places where they could have easily survived these elements of time, and used them for themselves.

This is what I think is the source of the Aztec New Mexico find, and likely the Texas find is the result of finding the remains of  an Indigenous warrior who fell in battle either against the Spanish or even a rivaling tribe.

Recently I saw on History channel a report of the Aztec New Mexico discovery, each of the archaeologist when making reference to the scales kept repeating back and forth “Scale Mail” mail meaning scales or small plates, I did not understand this at first, but in all the expedition documents I have ever read and the many histories of the Spanish conquest, not common to the public the WORDS USED is “cotas de malla” this is also what you find in the archaeologist reports of the same, are these people really that lazy?

Cotas de malla is the words used in the old documents, the translating of this phrase is Coats of MESH, it DOES NOT translate to Coats of Scale or their new indoctrinated nick name of Scale Mail. Why is this so important? It would seem the effort is to convince you that all the references to Cotas de Malla in the old documents is referring to these Scale Armors that have been found and convincing you that it was common among the Spanish in the 1500’s and 1600’s of which it was NOT. MESH Armor however was, because Scale armor had not been used nor even manufactured since the 1300’s, WIKI at least got it partially right.


Have you heard of Iron Shirt or Chief Iron Jacket? 1790-1858. Iron Jacket was a War Chief of the Comanche and if history has portrayed him correctly, he was known for his arrogance and his ability to blow bullets aside with his breath, this because of his habit of wearing his “Coat of Mail” again misusing the term, had it been a coat of Mail, Mail being the mistranslation of Malla which should be MESH, then Iron Jacket would have been wearing MESH Armor, which he was not, of the many descriptions given, it is clear he was wearing SCALE armor NOT MESH. Where did he get this scale armor? This is an excellent example of the hypothesis of the Indigenous using ancient Armor of the past and now it seems an effort is made to convince you that the ONLY possible scenario is they exist as a result of the Spanish arrival to this continent.

Roman Colonies were HERE long before Columbus! Academics refer to them as Pueblo people… And there were many others who came prior to them. Why is this possibility seemingly such a threat to them or the system of control whom they adhere, Smithsonian.


"Cotas de Malla" Coat of MESH, NOT Scales

Map Rock of Northern Arizona, Aztec (Digital Reconstruction)

This might be another of those "great visual resource but, after browsing a few of [my] other posts and [My] "about me" section, I worry about sharing this gentleman's website based on his apparent animosity towards academic archaeology." 
(Comment left by someone of the academic world on a previous post) 

Simply Asinine... Be careful where you share this, we wouldn't want anyone venturing beyond the academic curriculum and thinking for themselves now....

Map Rock of Northern Arizona

There are literally thousands of ancient petroglyph and Pictograph panels out there in danger of being destroyed forever, what is considered as "Art" by many, and all I can say about that is... To each his own. It is a message from the past, intended for future generations... I am only one man, but I will stop at nothing to continue documenting and putting forth the effort to preserve and restore whenever, wherever, and however possible and with whatever method needed, Gasp!... I do not care whose feathers it may ruffle as long as it does not include an unlawful practice. I cannot tell you how bad I have needed help in the past, but as it would seem some just feel it is more important to put up signs near glyph sites warning us of "Delicate Dirt"... Really?... , and I hope to soon have a resolution  for this problem of many years... My apologies to those who don't understand my attitude which is largely based on past experience, or the amount of coffee I have consumed before I commence writing... ;-)

The following is with out any doubt one of the most difficult digital restoration projects I have ever undertaken. I don't think there is anything more I can do, except keep studying it. Unfortunately and obviously it is not a physical restoration, If Only...  My first objective was to restore to the point making possible the study of the panel in its entirety, the second is to share... I hope you enjoy...


Many years ago a friend told me as we drove down the road near Kanab about a map rock that a Native American had told him about that was in the area and supposedly showed details of the 3 lakes site and other things in the area documented/inscribed by the Aztec, I had my doubts but... who knows? Although the details he was told did not quite match to the following, I could not help but wonder if it is not one and the same that he was told of but to my knowledge the one he spoke of was never located, or has it been?

Some years later a Navajo friend from the area took me to show me a petroglyph site near Kanab, it did not dawn on me until after I documented the entire panel trying to learn what it was and discovering that it is more than likely the very map rock that my friend was told of.

After being taken to this site, and trying to solicit rock art organizations for help with no success, we decided to take upon ourselves the project... consulting with an BLM archaeologist,  My friend Glen, his wife JoDee and I set out to the site to undertake what we felt might be impossible due to the massive amounts of graffiti at the site which made it very difficult to document, this was near 15 years ago. Many days had passed documenting this site meticulously using a mirror to cast light under the overhanging ledge where it was always shaded except in winter months capturing even the finest details and being very careful to distinguish between graffiti and Native American glyphs.

When we finished I knew we could not get all of the entire site into one picture and so we took photos starting from left to right and moving from top to bottom. It would be 11 years before Randy Bradford put enough pressure on me to finish the project which I could not in previous years due to the lack of capable software. The painstaking process of putting the pieces or individual photos together began in about 2006, My only critics have been, the very people whom I sought help from, but received no response. Quite to my surprise, I posted this one year ago, and apparently there are some who just do not understand, this is not "Art" it is an ancient message from the past... a message intended for future generations... and whatever it takes to preserve that message, I WILL do... I don't care what the critics have to say...

Some say I obviously have animosity towards the academics, Ya think?...  my response is two fold, I have absolutely no problem with the academics IF... they discontinue the practice of throwing out the evidence for the sake of the theory... and second, yer damned rights I do! and have you EVER thought to ask why? their time would best be spent creating delicate dirt signs.... I have many friends of the academic world, these are those who took the time to ask and to understand...

I wish I could tell you the half of what you are looking at and what it took to recreate this image... but this photo is the results of all the work that Glen, JoDee and I put into it, not to mention 11 years later meticulously converting the photos to black and white and then matching them side by side etc... to get the end result you see here..



This map as I call it, shows not only the 3 lakes site north of Kanab but also things pertaining to the presumed underground cities of the Aztec, one presumed to be found in the grand canyon, and things some would think has to do with the legends of Moctezuma and other things I am certain you would not believe should I tell. Why is this panel so important? Because it is a Historic event and validates some things found in the Aztec Record.



This panel talks of "the People" fleeing before an enemy and showing details of their tactics to evade them but was this the Spanish invaders, or some other unknown culture? It also shows the location of the cave in which the Aztec came from anciently and was their home for near 300 years after they had been expelled from their homeland of Aztlan. Most anyone can see the implications of the 3 Lakes site of which you can find North of Kanab and you will notice the hieroglyph activity at the 3rd lake or south lake, including two hieroglyphs showing broad movement or enter at the 3rd lake and "fleeing" from it.


There are so many things that this panel ties to, including an incredible story given to me by a friend many years ago having to do with a cave of the Indigenous, and of enormous dimensions containing amounts unknown to any man. Fortunately, as the people fled the enemy, they did not go to this ancient place likely because the enemy was not far behind them, and the enemy never knew of its existence. This panel also shows a navigation hieroglyph (nick named the key glyph) in which was used to travel back and forth between Mexico and their home of ancient times, it even shows in part how it is used in navigation, it is believed to be the very signs and symbols used and mentioned in the Aztec Record of Diego Duran 1581, which is in and of itself one of the many projects of documentation I am tied up with.

However... Take it all with a grain of salt, I'm sure the experts are right, it is likely just hunting magic, cowboy scribbling, just plain doodling.... or just rock art.... and should you go to visit this site, although the signs are not yet there... please stay on the trail so anyone and everyone else can find it, and please... be aware of the delicate dirt.... I can see I need more coffee....

Anyone who has a serious interest in the study of the Native American Glyphs may inquire about receiving a much larger image for study. email tuscoro@gmail.com
