Members of the Jesse James Gang - the last picture of the gang... the Jesse James gang was cornered in a 3 story rock house, located on Stone House Rd, in Nelson County. They eluded their captors, by climbing down through a tunnel next to the chimney, moving through the underground tunnel, and emerging 1 mile away in a cave. (Note: My Uncle and Aunt rented this house for awhile, and showed us the cave and the tunnel opening in the attic. Web Chatelaine)
