    Rufus, the Dreaming Creek Troll knows the location as it is his wooded home...
    ...and Rufus will tell you that Hunters Hill Plantation has nothing to do with the "authentic origin" of the Beale story.

    I am surprised with all your Lynchburg research that you never encountered a mention of Rufus,
    but as always, here is the requested "provenance":
    "Little-Known" Attractions of Lynchburg and Central Virginia
    The Dreaming Creek Troll is the 8th story down.
    I am sure Rebel-KGC has heard and is familiar with Rufus the Dreaming Creek Troll story.

    PS: If you scroll about halfway down, there is a photo of Thomas Jefferson's CHESTNUT GROVE simple frame house at 4714 Polk Street, Lynchburg.

    I have read some of those stories but not that one. Could be a Troll guarding the Confederate Gold?

    Was there any mention of the Beale Party, Thomas J Beale, the perilous adventure, the treasure before the 1884 copyright and 1885 publication?
    Anything that could collaborate anything portion of the story, excluding the names employed in the narrative text unless a pre-1884 statement can be produced and verified as legitimate, and also excluding the maybe, could be that are unrelated to Ward's copyrighted story.

    If it was a secret among RM' & Family someone in the family should have had the sense to write it down in a diary or journal. Need to contact all descendants see what they have?
