Sport Diver.. Thanks for the info.. There must be two schools of thought out there! I am not familiar with the people you mention. I will try to get what they have written. I have read numerous different accounts of the DeSoto expedition and none of their maps put it as far north as Michigan. With regard to gold, those on the expedition state that they did not find gold. Yes they did run into a few Indians that had as you say crude gold jewelry but DeSoto never found out where it came from. Thanks again. Lou
