My great uncle swore that it was "Martians" that crashed at Roswell and not a weather balloon.
Do you think your great uncle used to term martian as a generic word for extraterrestrial/aliens, or martians as in from Mars?

Well this is the information I have regarding the Roswell incident and my connection to the Roswell UFO crash.
My great grandfather was Sheriff Pat Garret, the man who shot and killed Billy The Kid. I know you are probably wondering what Pat Garrett and Billy The Kid have to do with UFO's, but this is pertinent to my knowledge. After Pat retired from being a lawman he retired to his ranch in Lincoln County New Mexico to ranch and raise cattle. Eventually he leased some land to a man named Jesse Wayne Brazel under the agreement that Brazel would be grazing cattle on the land, but it turned out that Brazel was grazing goats which Pat hated. Because of this Pat tried to evict Brazel and Brazel eventually shot and killed Pat outside of Las Cruces NM.
Now Brazel was friends with W.W. Cox, the creditor that held the deed to Pat's ranch and since Pat was dead Brazel worked out a deal to acquire Pats ranch from Cox. Jesse Wayne Brazel was either the father or grandfather (I can't remember which) of W.W. (Mac) Brazel whom owned the ranch when the UFO crashed and had Pat not been shot and killed in 1908 the ranch would have went to my grandfather, Pat Jr.
As it turns out, my great aunt ended up marrying a man whom owned the ranch next to the Brazel ranch (formerly the Garrett ranch), and he witnessed the wreckage when Mac Brazel found it and brought a piece of the "memory metal" to his ranch for him to see, He also witnessed the crash site
Now my great uncle was a former Army Air Force pilot in WWII and he said on numerous occasions that that the "memory metal" as well as the craft and its crew were not of this earth. I remember my great uncle as well as my aunt talking about the craft and the crash site occasionally at family get togethers as well as talking to my father and my uncle whom was an Air Force pilot and flew Air Force One under Reagan. My great uncle swore that it was "Martians" that crashed at Roswell and not a weather balloon.
I know my great uncle and the integrity he had and know that he would not lie about this, nor did he have any reason to. I honestly believe that it was a UFO that crashed and the government did all they could to cover it up from the American People.edit on 13-8-2012 by Nucleardiver because: (no reason given)
