A Headstone for Elvis' twin brother Jesse Garon

On January 8, 1935 Gladys Presley gave birth to two twins. Jesse Garon, and Elvis Aron in a shotgun shack in Tupelo Mississippi.

Jesse Garon was stillborn and announced dead at birth. Elvis Aron lived, and was happy and healthy.

Eye witness’s state in Elaine Dundy’s book “Elvis & Gladys” that Jesse was placed in a box on a table while Gladys gave birth to Elvis. Neighbors who came by to pay their respects, are unable to describe the deceased infant. It is unknown if Jesse and Elvis were identical twins or not.

He was then prepared for burial in the cemetery and laid to rest. There is a historical discrepancy in print regarding his grave site. It is listed in many books that there is ‘no’ marker, and other books state there is a marker which is ‘un-marked’

Elvis suffered greatly throughout his life being a twin-less twin. The condition is heartbreaking and more or less, untreatable. Twins have a bond inside the womb that is irreplaceable when one twin dies, thus adding difficulty to the childhood of the surviving twin. This is likely to have contributed to a number or Elvis’s personality traits, strengths, weaknesses etc.

Jesse Garon’s remains were never moved to Memphis. To this day, he is still buried in an unmarked grave in Tupelo. A headstone in his honor sits at Graceland. The memorial headstone is not placed next to his father, mother, brother, and grandmother.

    It seems that Elvis Aron Presley is Jewish by parentage according to a book by Elaine Dundy. In fact, the King’s middle name “Aron” is a misspelling of Aaron, the brother of Moses in the Bible.

    The book by Dundy claims that Elvis Presley has Jewish Heritage through direct descent from the Jewess Martha Tacket.

    Elvis’s mother, Gladys Love Smith’s mother was named Octavia “Doll” Marsell by her mother who was a Jewess named Martha Tacket who lived from 1852-1887.

    Under Jewish law, a person is of Jewish descent if his mother is Jewish. All Jews come through the lineage of their mothers.

    All mothers in Elvis Presley’s birth line run uninterrupted from the Jewish grandmother, Ms. Tacket, and then through all of his descending mothers and grandmothers. Therefore, Elvis himself is legally Jewish under the Jewish law of succession through mothers.

    This information is found in the book entitled Elvis and Gladys by historian and biographer named Elaine Dundy.

    Wow I just found out that Elvis and myself share Grandfathers a few generation back. We connect at Dunnan Presley. It’s funny because I thought Elvis was my father when I was a little girl. My father looked alot like Elvis when he was younger. Thanks to ancestry.com and pages like this,I have found so much info and pictures of my family. Thank you very much. Terrie Anderson (Moreland)

    My grandfather showed us a picture of him standing with Gladys and Elvis. Grandpa is holding Elvis in the picture. They are deceased now. I have asked for copies of the picture but no one seems to know where it went. Grandma and grandpa lived and died in Memphis , Tennessee which is where my deceased father was from.

    It is fun to find out so many interesting facts. Elvis always caught my attention .A few years ago I met this guy he said he was related to Elvis. His mother he said was related to him by way of her grandmother and Elvis . The were sisters or something. They lived someplace in the western part of Va. near Roanoke . Don’t know alot of the details but all I know is on the dads side the name is Krebs. The guy I knew looked alot like E Presley .
