Researcher skeptical about claim on Geronimo
Tuesday, May 9, 2006

A researcher who uncovered a 1918 letter about Geronimo is skeptical that Yale University's secretive Skull and Bones society actually has the remains of the Apache leader.

Marc Wortman said the society may have looted the wrong grave at Fort Sill in Oklahoma, where Geronimo is buried. The Fort Sill historian also says the grave was not disturbed.

But some descendants of Geronimo and other Apaches want the issue settled. They aren't getting help from Yale or Skull and Bones, so they are seeking other ways to determine whether their ancestor's grave was desecrated.

Geronimo letter stirs passions about famed leader
Thursday, May 11, 2006

Not everyone believes a secretive Yale University society unearthed the remains of famed Apache leader Geronimo.
Historian Marc Wortman recently discovered a 1918 letter in which members of the Skull and Bones society claimed they had Geronimo's remains. But he said it's possible that the group made up the story.
Fort Sill Apache historian Michael Darrow also has doubts. He said the group is probably lying about the claim on Geronimo.
Geronimo died February 17, 1909, and was buried in Fort Sill in Oklahoma. Initially, his grave was unmarked but a monument now marks his burial site.
