[Kim Rupert: My maternal family through genealogical research, determined we were distantly related to Jesse Jame's uncle, Sam Hill. He was a man who was so infamous for his obscenities and vulgarities, his name became a curse word. Mel Hulse, knowing of this distant family relationship, shared the rose collected from Sam Hill's grave with me.]
