Fighting over Jim Thorpe

Ok so I see that everybody is fighting over where Jim Thorpes remains should be

What is your opinion on this?

Once I'm gone, it won't matter to me: I doubt it matters to him.

He was 1/2 white, married three times and died in California. Where, exactly, would his "family cemetery" be?

Remember: his remains are not in Oklahoma because the state refused to memorialize him and his legal wife chose Pennsylvania.

That's good enough for me.

Thorpe was raised Sauk & Fox, but at death his widow had first say on the disposition of his mortal remains.

Maybe the children could have petitioned the Medical Examiner upon Jim's death.

Thorpe certainly put Carlisle, PA on the map during his football years. Maybe he felt close to the old coach Pop Warner and his wife knew this?

I guess with no family cemetery, Pennsylvania is the only place.

I visited Jim Thorpe, Pa and his gravesite. At the time i didn't think he was getting proper respect at a town he never visited and had no connection with.
i would like to think the Oklahoma reservation would show him more respect... hopefully without turning it into a tourist trap.

1. Most of his exploits occurred in PA.
2. It's where his wife wanted him to be.
3. OK had already disrespected him.

I don't see the issue with where he is.
