THE REAL ROSWELL:
New evidence suggests there was more than one UFO crash near Roswell.
On July 8, 1947 at 5:26 EDT, an Associated Press news wire announced that soldiers from Roswell Army Air Field in New Mexico recovered a "flying disk" from a nearby rancher's property. The tiny town of Roswell has never been the same. Now, 61 years later, new theories, new witnesses, and new evidence have emerged. The most shocking lead is that there may have been a second crash, and if it can be found, it may finally reveal what really happened at Roswell.

UFO CRASH AT SAN AUGUSTIN is a comprehensive book written by Art Campbell on the artifacts and testimony of a UFO crash on the Plains of San Augustin, New Mexico. For more information: www.ufocrashbook.com. Art has given me permission to quote from his book. I was intrigued by one story (or probably many stories) that I wanted to tell you. You will see why!
The following material, we believe, has some relevance to the south side of the Plains of San Augustin and The Plains Area. Some locals who were around in those days recall a lot of planes flying around behind Shaw Mt. in the Coyote Peak area. This unusual amount of aerial activity went on for some months, well into the fall of 1947. This may account for the USAAFL-3 spotter plane crash at Horse Springs. In 2004 the author became aware of the SERPO information. We did not give this material a great deal of time or energy and did not think it was relevant to Barnett's discovery of the downed flying saucer and bodies. It turns out that this aerial activity may in fact have been a search for another UFO, that was learned about from Air Force intelligence services in 2004-05.
THE GREEN'S GAP, GRAY
We were just beginning to check this story out when this book and the CD went on the market. It would not be used here except it is somewhat plausible and fits into the general timeline of the Barnett crash discovery and the new information on the Pelona Mt. Crash. We have learned from a reliable source that this story was told in a military intelligence briefing in the mid 70's. The initial data probably came through the Catron County Sheriff's Office. The sheriff's daily activities in the late 1940s was still quite informal, and few records exist today of what the sheriff's office was doing.
It seems that in the summer of 1947, a retired rancher from the Plains area was driving on old route NM 12 about 20 miles south of Datil, when he noticed what he took to be a child walking in a pasture near the highway. This was a remote area where unattended children are never seen. He decided to stop and see if he could help. He parked his truck, opened a barb wire gate and went towards the "child." As he got closer, he noticed it was unlike any human child he had ever seen and it was not wearing children's clothing, but a one piece gray outfit. He encouraged it towards the gate and his pickup truck parked on the shoulder. It was apparently dazed but cooperative. When he got to the truck he picked up the child and put it in the front seat of his pickup.
He said at this point it was very scared. He noticed four long fingers, but no thumbs, no ears, fairly large eyes.
Traveling a few miles down the road, the rancher reached a little town of Horse Springs. There he turned north towards Green's Gap where he lived. Green's Gap was not a town, but the designation of a valley between hillsides. There was once a store here and a cluster of building which the locals called Green's Gap. It is 12 miles north of Horse Springs, NM between NM Highway 12 and US Highway 60.
When he reached home, he brought the "child" into his house. His wife offered it food and water, but it would not take any. It did calm down some and they were able to get it into a chair. They contacted the Catron Country Sheriff's office; a deputy was due out the next morning. When the couple went to bed they left it sitting in the chair. When they got up the next morning, it was gone. Local lore has it that two years later in August of 1949, a crashed UFO was found with alien bodies, we believe it may have been on the south side of Pelona Mt. In the summer of 1947, Barney Barnett made his discovery of a crashed disk about a mile from NM Highway 12, within several miles of where the rancher allegedly found the strange child.
Barnet said that three or four alien bodies were at the crash site. We assume the beings that Barney saw looked like the child and were on the ground outside of the craft. None appeared to be alive. Barnett said the craft had been split open on the edge. Did they crawl out after the crash and then die, or could one of the crew who was still alive, have helped them out? If this was the case, it would seem that the only signs of help would have been visible on the highway mentioned by Barnett a mile or so away. Indications are the craft Barnett discovered came down at night and occasional car lights would have been very visible from the crash site for some seven-hundred feet, in the slightly hilly terrain.
A crash at Pelona Mt., or any of the surrounding remote peaks in the vicinity, would present a different set of conditions for an alien making its way from, on or around the area peaks and rugged terrain in between. Pelona Mt. is the highest peak n the immediate area at 9,220 feet. The mountain is about 15 miles south of Horse Springs (where the rancher turned north with his passenger). Many of the mountains including Pelona Mt., is steeper on the north side where it overlooks the Plains, than on the south side where the terrain is less steep and suitable for livestock grazing.
Below the mountain peaks, there are numerous smaller hills and rough rocky draws. Continuing down in the rough country for several miles, there is an eighty to one-hundred foot cliff. Below the long cliff, is the old south shoreline of what geologists called the extinct lake of San Augustin. It is in these wave cut cliffs, where we find Bat Cave, which was also eroded out by wave action over some 4,000 years by the lake weather, wind and waves. Bat Cave is also where the Herbert Dick party of archaeologists were camped on the night of July 1, 1947. This is not to say that there are not rock draws here and there that could be negotiated up or down through the bluff with the right dress and outdoor equipment. It would stretch the imagination for a creature like a gray, probably in shock, to work its way through this harsh terrain in the dark of early morning hours, some ten miles through several fences to the highway where it was found.
The only plausible explanation to this writer is that (if the rancher's story was true) the gray survived the Barnett crash, helped his companions out of the craft and in the morning walked to the nearby road where it was found by the rancher.
This event may or may not be true, but the author and others are continuing to investigate it. Initial research indicated the sheriff of Catron County from 1947 - 1950 was Frank Balke. He made his residence in Reserve (the county seat) some sixty miles southeast of Datil. The main highway from Datil, NM 12, runs through Horse Springs, and Aragon to Reserve. We are seeking Sheriff's department records, name of deputies and other information that might give us more leads. As yet, no important new information has substantiated the strange story of the Green's Gap Gray.
