    Blackbeard's treasure

    As a highly influenced young man of the potentials of buried treasures, esp. tales of buried treasures of pirates, anywhere within reach of the country of my upbringings, I was highly inquisitive and interested in for sure during the days of my youth and have never outgrown those days.
    In my years of schooling I would search our local schools liibrary for any information of lost
    treasures, treasure laden ships, buried treasures, tales, or anything related to hidden and forgotten treasures, haunted houses, ect where supposedily hidden treasures were supposedly hidden.
    I was always mesmerized in such tales, and have never outgrown those desires today.
    I believe maybe we all have those same desires and hopes, and that some of those tales may actually be true and there is still hidden treasures out there that have not been found today. One such so called hidden treasure I have always desired to know or question and has always been in the back of my mind is..........
    The several chests of treasure supposidly buried by the pirate Blackbeard, Quote:

    At Guzarat I met with a Portuguese named Anthoney de Sylvestre; he came with two other Portuguese and two Dutchmen to take on in the Moor's service, as many Europeans do,
    This Anthony told me he had been among the pirates, and that he belonged to one of the sloops in Virginia when Blackbeard was taken. He informed me that if it should ever be my lot ever to go to York River or Maryland, near an Island called Mulberry Island, provided I went on shore at the watering place, where the shipping used most commonly to ride, that there the pirates had buried considerable sums of money in great chests well clamped with iron plates. As to my part, I never was that way, nor was much acquainted with any that ever used those parts; but have made inquiry,and am informed that there is such a place as Mulberry Island. If any person who uses those parts should think it worthwhile to dig at the upper end of a small grove where it is convient to land, he would find if the information was well grounded, Fronting the landing place are five trees among which he said the money was hidden. If anyone should ever go there and benifeit by this account, if it please God that they ever come to England, tis hoped they will rememebr whence they had this information.

    Does anyone know if this so called buried treasure has ever been searched for, recovered, or have any clues to where it's probabilities or possibilities may be ?
    From the research I have done the only Mulberry Island I can find is on the James River in Virginia, and that Island today is U.S. Gov. property, a military base. The York River has a big *****ula dividing it from the James river and no such named Island is on the York.
    Thanks. SS

    They say the treasure ye seek is cursed! By the guardian souls place there by the pirate captain himself.

    Sure we all have heard of so called such curses of treasure from time immoral, even Blackbeard himself
    said only the devil and himself knew where he buried his treasure before his death, that may be true, but does that deter one from searching for it, do you believe this curse to be true ?
    If everyone believed such about most hidden wealth, does that deter most from searching for them then there would be very, very, few treasures found, or recovered if everyone believed such and for fear did not search.
    Some of Blackbeard's treasure has been recovered, Silver bars on Smuttynose Island, is one example, How can one account that as being unrecoverable because of a so called curse or guardian souls
    These are simple and normal questions that ask for simple and normal answers. I am not trying to be smart or pretentious, just straight and simple questions.
    Thanks for your input.

    I've read one was dug up. Some say he never buried near as much as he is credited with. They claim he spent it on save haven, drink and wild women. Which is what i'd spend it on if i was him.

    Stick,
    Don't let naysayers keep you from your dream!
    There are several places where Blackbeard's treasures could be hidden. maybe Mulberry Island is off limits, but SmuttyNose is definitely a place to search. Remember though, Blackbeard had lots of manpowere at his disposal so his troves will be DEEP! Don't go looking with a regular detector, it will never get deep enough. By the way, he had about 15 wives so lots of his money/treasure went to them.

    Who is saying it can not be found? I believe treasure can be found. There is so much hidden wealth in this country that it would boggle the mind. I only posted several of the accepted views on this topic.

    Two dtect, I probably if I was in his position at the time, might have spent a lot on safe have and women too,
    but I think he may not have been as scatter brained as most might believe.
    His safe haven was obtained by the dry goods, Tobacco, Rum, Brandy, food, silk, cotton, wool, and other staples brought into the home of the Governor of N.C. that paid for his safe haven, the value of those staples were split between the crew, of course the ruling powers got the largest share, but you can bet your
    a$$ that very few pieces of 8 and hard currency went to the powers that be, and that was the main reason
    he was in the occupation of Piracy, like Donald Trump, Money, Money, Money
    Does that make sense
    Thanks

    Re: Blackbeard's treasure

    In the movie Blackbeard's Ghost, it's all a lie.? Blackbeard was a failed pirate who squandered all his loot. But watching the movie, you start to think it may not be an accurate portrayal... ? funny movie though!

    Uhhh.....it's funny. It was made in 1968, so you can imagine the special effects are OUTSTANDING!!!
    Good to rent, probably wouldn't buy it.
