Burying Sundance

Today we Placed Great Grandpa William Henry Long AKA The Sundance kid back in his resting place in Duchesne Utah.
We had a custom made Pine box created just for him. The original pine Box was destroyed over the years due to the flooding of the cemetery.

The attending family members pulled Sundance in this Beautiful Vintage Hearse.   

So many feelings as Family gathered once again at the cemetery. 

first.. to dig up a descendant with a questionable past. Searching for answers... Was Great Grandpa an Outlaw?  With the technology and forensic science we have today the hope was to find those answers. Once again reunited the family placed his bones back into the ground as the final resting place of The Sundance Kid. 
Many descendants came out to honor this great man as the husband, father, uncle, brother, Grandfather, friend and "Outlaw" that he was.  

Each taking a moment to pound a nail to close the casket for good.

Pondering on the new information that Bill Long didn't take his own life all those years ago, He was murdered. Jerry Nickle has much new information for a book he is writing. "The Sundance Kid, My Great Grandfather to be released about May of 2013. For Info on the book go to our Facebook page

Mary Kaye is a local favorite!  Singer/songwriter who shares the stories of the West in music and song. She now resides on a 100 year old pioneer homestead in Central Utah with her husband, Brad Knaphus, and their ten children.
She honored The Sundance Kid through song today and entertained us all with her Musical Gifts and Talents. 

Jerry has lots of plans in his future. A book, documentary and maybe even a Movie. We will keep you posted.
