Bobby Jones

Hunter lives in California.

At the age of three, Hunter said that he had once been the top golfer Bobby Jones.

When Hunter saw Jones on TV, Hunter told his parents that, when he had been 'big', he had been Bobby Jones .

Hunter decided he wanted to be called Bobby.

Hunter's father showed Hunter six pictures of golfers from the 1930s and asked which one was Jones.

Hunter picked out Bobby Jones and said: 'This me.'

New book reveals the children who believe they have been here before.

Hunter's father showed Hunter pictures of several different houses.

Hunter picked out Jones's childhood house and called it 'home'.

Hunter started playing golf at the age of three.

Hunter is now seven and he is a golfing prodigy.

Friends of Hunter's father have said, unprompted, that Hunter's swing is similar to that of Bobby Jones.

Seven-year-old Hunter has won 41 out of the 50 junior tournaments that he has entered.


Jim B. Tucker has written a new book called 'Return to Life', which is about children who believe that they have had previous lives.

Tucker is Associate Professor of Psychiatry and Neurobehavioral Sciences at the University of Virginia School of Medicine.[1]

Professor Tucker

Professor Tucker is the author of Life Before Life: A Scientific Investigation of Children’s Memories of Previous Lives, which covers 40 years of reincarnation research.[3]

Tucker worked on this research with Ian Stevenson before taking over upon Stevenson’s retirement in 2002.[4][5][6]

Though raised as a Southern Baptist, Tucker does not subscribe to any particular religion, and claims to be skeptical about reincarnation,[7] but sees it as providing the best explanation for phenomena associated with the strongest cases investigated to date.[8]

Tucker reports that in about 70% of the cases of children claiming to remember past lives, the deceased died from an unnatural cause.

This suggests that traumatic death may be linked to the hypothesized survival of personality.

He further indicates that the time between death and apparent rebirth is, on average, 16 months.

He says that unusual birthmarks might match fatal wounds suffered by the deceased.[22]

Jim BTucker - Wikipedia

Tucker has developed the Strength Of Case Scale, which evaluates what Tucker sees as four aspects of potential cases of reincarnation;[23][24]

(1) Whether or not it involves birthmarks/defects that correspond to the supposed previous life.

(2) The strength of the statements about the previous life.

(3) The relevant behaviours as they relate to the previous life.

(4) An evaluation of the possibility of a connection between the child reporting a previous life and the supposed previous life. [25]

Tucker suggests that Quantum Physics may explain how memories and emotions could carry over from one life to another.[8][9]

He argues that consciousness may be a separate non-physical entity in the universe and that it survives death.

Cameron Macaulay

In 2006, Tucker investigated the case of Cameron Macaulay.

Tucker interviewed the six-year-old and his mother Norma about Cameron’s reported recollections of life on the isle of Barra in the Outer Hebrides, around 200 miles from the family’s home in Glasgow.

Tucker then accompanied the family as they traveled to Barra in an attempt to verify Cameron’s statements about life on the island. Cameron's descriptions of his previous family home were wholly accurate; while the family name of "Robertson" also rang true.[16]

Tucker studied the case of Gus Taylor from the American Midwest, who reportedly claimed from around the age of 18-months to be his own grandfather returned to the family.

Tucker finds that children reveal their past life at an extremely young age - at usually two or three.


One of the people studied by professor Tucker is five-year-old Ryan is from Oklahoma.

Ryan remembers being Marty Martin, a top Hollywood agent who died in 1964.

Ryan saw a picture in one of his mother's library books.

The picture showed George Raft and a group of men.

Ryan said: 'Hey Mama, that's George. We did a picture together."

Ryan looked at the man next to George Raft and said: "Mama, that guy's me. I found me.'

The man in the photo was in an uncredited cameo role.

An archival footage consultant eventually discovered that the man in the photo was Hollywood agent Marty Martin.

Marty Martin

Ryan was taken to meet 'his daughter', Marty Martin's daughter..

Ryan said: "She got old. Why didn't she wait for me?"

Marty Martin's daughter confirmed that over fifty of Ryan's stories about her father were accurate.

These included Ryans accounts of her father's wealth, love of dancing, sunbathing and friendship with the top people of Hollywood.

New book reveals the children who believe they have been here before.

James Leininger and his parents

Professor Tucker has studies the case of James Leininger.

James Leininger was very young when he became interested in fighter aircraft.

James told his parents that he was a pilot during World War II, he  flew off a carrier called the USS Natoma Bay, his name was James and he died when the Japanese shot down his plane.

'Mama, before I was born, I was a pilot, and my airplane got shot in the engine and it crashed in the water and that's how I died.'

When James was two-and-a-half he came across a book on the 1945 Battle for Iwo Jima.

Looking at a picture of Mount Suribachi, James said, 'That's where my plane was shot down. My airplane got shot down there daddy.'

During a nightmare James shouted, 'Airplane crash on fire! Little man can't get out!'

James Huston

Little James's father attended a reunion for USS Natoma Bay veterans and discovered that the only pilot killed during the Iwo Jima operation was a 21-year-old from Pennsylvania called James Huston.

Little James's father was told by James that his past-life father was an alcoholic.

James Huston's sister Anne confirmed that when when James Huston was 13, his drunken father was put in hospital for six weeks.

Little James attended a USS Natoma Bay reunion.

There he was stopped in the hallway of the hotel by Bob Greenwalt, a Natoma Bay veteran.

Bob asked 'do you know who I am?'

Little James replied, 'You are Bob Greenwalt.'

Little James told his parents that before he was born he had seen them eating dinner in Hawaii on Waikiki Beach.

He said he then knew that they were the right parents for him.

Little James's parents do not know how how Little james knew about Hawaii trip.

New book reveals the children who believe they have been here before.

Sidney Coe Howard

Professor Tucker studied three-year-old Lee, who believed that he was Sidney Coe Howard, the screenwriter of Gone With The Wind.

Lee, from a small Midwestern town, told his parents that he had worked on movies.

When Gone With The Wind was mentioned, Lee said: 'Yes, that was my movie. I wrote that movie'.

Lee would speak about his home in Hollywood and about tractors.

Sidney Coe Howard died in a tractor accident.

What I am about to say is not a facetious comment, nor is it designed to generate controversy. I am not on drugs, not addicted to anything, nor delusional or mentally ill. I am not seeking fame, fortune or notoriety. I am a person with two Bachelors, a Masters and an honorary doctorate (which I usually do not announce as it is not earned). I am, I am sure, after years of pensive deliberation, and professional consultation, a reincarnation of Adolf Hitler. Now, what exactly do I do about that..... here in Germany. All I can say is that you have me all wrong. The previous, and the current incarnation. What these children are telling you is true. I can vouch for that, for whatever that is worth.

Professor Tucker says that he is skeptical about reincarnation; but, surely he has read about Elias and Elijah, Jesus and John the Baptist respectively from his Bible studies? Isn't this confirmation of reincarnation?

Is this a good time to consider the multitude of anecdotal accounts concerning organ recipients taking on aspects of the donor personality? Seems to bear some kind of conceptual similarity.

As a kid, I use to have unbeleivably vivid (and often horrific) recounts of losing a great medieval battle... The most vivid recollections where the sounds of swords and men screaming in absolute horror and pain... Truly horrific! I use to have a dreaded feeling of guilt for letting my men down. Considering i was three/four, it was pretty strange! Do I beleive in reincarnation? Mmm? I think i may have to look into the Quantum theory before i take it any further...
