Grave of Jesse James, Kearney, Missouri
After 20 years in the grave outside his mother’s farmhouse (yesterday’s postcard), Jesse James’s body was exhumed in 1902 and reburied in the family plot in Mt. Olivet Cemetery.
His mother Zerelda died in 1911 and was buried nearby.
The back of the photo reads, “Here is the pictures of Hiram on Jesse James grave. My picture was no good so I did not get any of these. But this is a good resemblance of old Hi. And the old Tomb Stone also.”
That tombstone has since been replaced by a government-issued military headstone. Grave of Jesse James, Kearney, Missouri
