    Dents Run questions

    Several threads scattered around on this topic, but I'll start a fresh one:

    The earliest written account of the Dents Run treasure I've seen is an article in the July 1974 issue of Treasure magazine, written by "Sandra Gardner." As is typical of treasure mag articles, there are no references to any prior publications. There is also a comic book version of the story in Treasure Search, June 1980. I also see the story repeated, with significant embellishments, in Lost Gold & Buried Treasure by Kevin Randle (1995).

    Questions...

    Is there a published account of this story prior to 1974?

    Are there other significant versions of the story published after 1974? Particularly including details in the Randle account.

    I have read that research has determined that (a) the particular Union soldiers mentioned by name in the story appear nowhere in the military records of the time and that (b) Pinkerton has no records that they were ever involved in the subsequent search. Can anyone positively verify or refute these claims?
    I believe it, therefore it is true.

    I have traced a Wyoming treasure lead back to a comic book story (1970's). There was nothing prior on it.

    We need to relax on this subject until we see the pics of the guys getting custody of the gold or a court order showing how much was found, and who will get it.

    Not another Thread ?

    Just remember the Original Tale can be Debated on it's Merits Etc.

    If it becomes a TV Show.
    Like Oak island, All Bets are off, and opinions can be wide open,
    Because Producers make demands for Drama.

    However, What a Respected Member says on TNet about His/her find
    is to be considered Gospel unless the Mods have 100% Proof of an impropriety,
    on our Desks in front of us, in Living Color !.

    Anyone who has a Problem with these Rules, Can Ignore threads to avoid Banning.
