On January 8, 1935 Gladys Presley gave birth to a twin. Jesse Garon, and Elvis Aaron in a shotgun shack in Tupelo Mississippi. Jesse Garon was stillborn and announced dead at birth.
Jesse Garon Presley was buried in a shoe box in an unmarked grave in the Princeville Cemetery in East Tupelo.

Elvis Aaron lived, and was happy and healthy. Neighbors who came by to pay their respects, are unable to describe the deceased infant. It is unknown if Jesse and Elvis were identical twins or not.
He was then prepared for burial in the cemetery and laid to rest. There is a historical discrepancy in print regarding his grave site.
It is listed in many books that there is ‘no’ marker, and other books state there is a marker which is
unmarked. Elvis suffered greatly throughout his life being a twin-less twin. The condition is heartbreaking and more or less, untreatable.

Twins have a bond inside the womb that is irreplaceable when one twin dies, thus adding difficulty to the childhood of the surviving twin.
This is likely to have contributed to a number or Elvis’s personality traits, strengths, weaknesses etc.
Jesse Garon’s remains were never moved to Memphis. To this day, he is still buried in an unmarked grave in Tupelo.
A headstone in his honor sits at Graceland. The memorial headstone is not placed next to his father, mother, brother, and grandmother.
