Lost Cities of the Bible thread identifies Hebron as being at/or by the Valley of the kings.

With father Saul and 3 brothers dead at Gilboa; Ishbaal (now King) more than likely would have been located in Thebes making it very easy to bury head and body together.

It was the death of Ishbaal that finally made David a king.

Jonathan, son of Saul, had a son named "Meribbaal" with crippled feet. He was five years old when the news about Saul and Jonathan came from Jezreel, and his nurse took him up and fled. But in their hasty flight, he fell and became lame.)

Deformed foot of Siptah also named Mer-en-ptah; compare him to Mer-ib-baal the grandson of Saul.

I think the real point here is to compare the royal mummies found at Deir el-Bahari to the House of Saul & David.

David does make a good Thutmose I and you can mix and match the other mummys as you please.
