Elvis bought Graceland when he was 22

In 1957, Elvis Presley  shelled out $102,500 for Graceland, the Memphis mansion that served as his home base for two decades. Situated on nearly 14 acres, it was built in 1939 by Dr. Thomas Moore and his wife Ruth on land that once was part of a 500-acre farm dubbed Graceland in honor of the original owner’s daughter, Grace, who was Ruth Moore’s great-aunt. The Moores’ white-columned home also came to be known as Graceland, and when Elvis purchased the place he kept the name. Source: graceland.elvis.com.au

    It can be argued that your sister had established a &#y2;02tenanc8”. You might argue that she moved out, but, because local police are usually hesitant to get involved in what they consider a “civil matter”, her previous tenancy seems to have backed them off. Likely, if the police won’t find her a trespasser, you will probably have to evict her. I don’t know all your facts, so this is not legal advice.

    Elvis had an Army Military Drivers License. With it came the right to drive anything Army. ie., cars, jeeps, trucks and his Tank. The fact that it doesn’t note this in the above may have been an oversight or a lacd of knowledge but in either case it is ridiculous that the writer who is supposed to know so much about Elvis didn’t know this fact.

    That President Nixon was never given the gun is an out and out LIE! It was inspected by White House Security and given to him later after Elvis’ visit.
