Recommended Posts

One of the three anti-Castro Cubans arrested, along with Oswald, for disturbing the peace in the 700 block of Canal Street on August 9, 1963, was 47 year-old Celso Macario Hernandez.

The 99 year-old Celso M. Hernandez listed here http://publicrecords.directory/profiles/celso-hernandez.8860319.html not only has the "right" name (although there's always the possibility that the middle initial "M" stands for different middle names), but lives in the "right" state and is of the "correct" age. Would any Spanish-speaking "researcher" like to call that phone number to see if he's still alive? And, if so, if he was arrested with Oswald in August of 1963? And, regardless, was he arrested with "Oswald" by the lake in New Orleans in the fall of 1961 (as alleged by John Armstrong)?

A good, "non-threatening" lead-up question to that last one is whether or not he worked as a TV electrician in New Orleans, because when "Oswald" and a "Celso Hernandez" were allegedly arrested in New Orleans in October of 1961, they were, according to Richard Gilbride, sitting in a a pickup truck with the words "TV Electronics parts and Service" on the side.

Note: The International Trade Mart was at the corner of Camp Street and Commons Street, and was only about two blocks from where Hernandez, Bringuier, Cruz, and Oswald were arrested in the 700 block of Canal Street on August 9, 1963.

Good sleuthing. A letter is more polite, though I really have no experience at this whatsoever. I hope someone here takes you up on it.
