Looking Back

Looking back over the years with Mom, watching her research and write three books proving that Jesse James faked his death and lived the remainder of his life on a farm in Texas.  Here’s some photos from an interview several years ago with Mom (Betty Dorsett Duke) and former Texas Attorney General Waggoner Carr done by TV producer, news anchor and investigative reporter, Bill Kurtis regarding the outlaw Jesse James. This was at the Mustang Cafe in Dallas, TX about a year or two before Waggoner Carr passed away.

In Memory of Betty Dorsett Duke

Betty Dorsett Duke

My mother, my hero and best friend, Betty Gail Dorsett Duke passed away at the age of 68 on August 29, 2015, in Temple, Bell County, Texas.

Betty was the author of three historical non-fiction books proving that the outlaw Jesse James was her great-grandfather and that he didn’t die as history reported. She was also an amazing wife, mother, and grandmother.

Her work will be continued through her son Daniel and her daughter Teresa.
