(1)  My name is Barbara Dugger

(2)  My address is:  XXXXXXXXXX

(3)  I am employed by: XXXXXXXXXXXX

(4)  My grandmother was Inez Wilcox, and my grandfather was George Wilcox, who was the Sheriff in Chaves County, New Mexico, in 1947.  I lived with my grandmother while I was teaching at the New Mexico Military Institute.  I was 24 years old at the time.

(5)  One evening, while we were watching a TV program about space, my grandmother told me that in the 1940s, there was a spacecraft--a flying saucer--that crashed outside Roswell.  She told me not to tell anybody, because when the event occurred, "the military police came to the jailhouse and told George and I that if we ever told anything about the incident, not only would we be killed, but our entire family would be killed."  I said, "Did you believe them?"  She said, "What do you think?  They meant it, Barbara--they were not kidding."  She didn't remember the names of those involved, however, she said it was Air Force personnel who threatened them.  She never told anyone else in the family about the event, even my mother, Elizabeth Tulk.

(6)  She said someone had come to Roswell and told him about this incident.  My grandfather went out there to the site; it was in the evening.  There was a big burned area, and he saw debris.  He also saw four "space beings."  One of the little men was alive.  Their heads were large.  They wore suits like silk."

(7)  After he returned to his office, my grandfather got phone calls from all over the world--including England.  MPs came to the jail.  A lot of people came in and out of the jail at the time.

(8)  She said the event shocked him.  He never wanted to be sheriff again after that.  Grandmother ran for sheriff and was defeated.  She wrote an article about the event right after it happened to see if anyone else knew anything about it.

(9)  My grandmother was a very loyal citizen of the United States, and she thought it was in the best interest of the country not to talk about the event.  However, if she said it happened, it happened.  Her state of mind was excellent at the time of this conversation.  She was working in real estate.  Grandfather had passed away by this time from hardening of the arteries.  Grandmother passed away at age of 93.

(9) I have not been paid or given anything of value to make this statement, which is the truth to the best of my recollection.
