    Re: red bone cave

    This cave is supposed to be in this area (Lauderdale-Colbert County area) of northwest Alabama. It is supposed to be filled with treasure from Spanish explorers that passed through the area and were killed by the local Indians. In fact, I once knew an old man, now deceased, who lived on the now flooded bottom land of the Tennessee River near Waterloo, AL. He told me that one day when he was about 10 years old an Indian came to his house and asked him if he knew where Bone Cave was. He said he did and the Indian told him if he would show him that there was enough gold and silver in it to last both of them the rest of their lives and that he would share it with him. He was afraid to go with him because this was in the early 1900's and the memory of Indians killing whites was still fresh in people's minds and the Indian left and was never seen again. This old man said Bone Cave had two entrances with one being above the other and that it is now flooded by Pickwick Lake. I don't know if this is the same cave but the name is close and it was supposed to hold treasure. I know of a cave that is called Manbone Cave but it is not too close to the Tennessee River and Red Bone Cave is supposed to be.
    You can't scare me. I've been married. Twice!

    Re: red bone cave

    The info I have found out says the Indians Chief put all their gold in there because the white people back then were coming and they didn't want them to take it.The Indian chief new they would loose their land and gold if it was found.So they hid it in a cave 'guarded' by two dead braves skeletons(that's how it became know as the red bone cave)
    Long story short(I cant type long...LOL)Along came a young white trapper, asked the chief if he could trap on their land because he wasn't having any luck elsewhere, chief says yes.He ended up liking the trapper and blindfolded him and brought him to the cave.Told him if he married the chiefs daughter, he could have all the gold.He told the chief he would think about it.Later they were heading back to the village, the young trapper killed the chief and went back to find the gold for himself,but never could find it....
    That's what I know so far.......
    EDIT::::: a little bit of both what dnewbury says and what I have found out...

    Yea its a god possiblity its under water but a guy came thru a little while back he is suppose to be some kind of big shot explore with some type equipment that picks up precious metals under ground and he claims to have found two places at mcfarland park by the Tenn. river and that one of them appears to be a cave or tunnel that has alot of gold in it? claims it underneath a road that he will not name and is trying to make a deal with the florence city councel to allow him to dig beneath this road that he wont tell them about anyway rumor is that its savanna highway which is by the park and river? if this is so surely there is a cave or something in this area also there is not any bluffs alone the north bank of the river where this gold is suppose to be but there is bluffs on the other side of the river for as far as you can see? any ideas?
