Melissa Bryan was Abrana Garcia Bonney, the wife of Billy the Kid, in her previous life. Her evidence is compelling and detailed. Is this yet another case of the same face the same memories? You be the judge...
Note the close resemblance especially the eyes and the spacing of the mouth and chin.http://www.ravenecho.com/static/34/d0efcf3d4dc633ac12b37947a775bc08.jpg
I have the Marriage Document, backed up with a Family Story to Prove it.

Melissa and her husband re-enact memories from the Wildhttp://www.ravenecho.com/static/34/e35c6cc5bf81ca949c7c27bfaab05f2f.jpg
Melissa's shrine to Billy including his personal side arm
So many memories and things I still need to elaborate on. Oh well all in good time...
Melissa lives in New Mexico and travels often in and around her old home grounds from that time. Her information is copious and detailed. It throws much light on the personal and human side of one of the Wild West's greatest legends. Reader's of this article might also like to download and read my book Discovering Billy the Kid; the case of David Baxter reincarnated. I shall be posting episodes of her memories as we go along.
