    I don't know how long the one I saw was but his body was about 4" in dia. He was coiled up but he didn't strike so I let him live rather than blasting him with a .45 cal snake load.

    Thats the funniest thing I've read in a LONG time. There has never been a rattle snake that big! It would be VERY hard to find something in the python family reach that size.

    Look at it this way, I was 4' away from him and you are probably hundreds of miles. Who has the best view.
    The East coast "Timber Rattler" is much heavier than those I have seen out west.

    I don't care what you imagined it to be. It may have been a huge rattler. I deal with 4 inch hose all the time. There is no way there has EVER been a rattlesnake that large.

    We grow some pretty big timber rattlers around here. It may have just swallowed somebody with a colorfull shirt.

    I killed a western diamondback in AZ in 1973 that was 5in diameter, he sorta ended up in three pieces (somehow) and was still over five feet long, I still have the rattles. Killed another that was over six ft long but not nearly as old, 13 vs 20 rattles

    Sorry Not gonna Give TOO many Details here. I'm not Giving up on this one yet.
    Sorry but I must be a little thick also? How about where did these sources get their information? I have everything from the libraries up that way and they have absolutely nothing before 1973. I have searched Chronicling America newspapers======Nothing. I have looked through the Pinkerton Records at the National Archives--------Nothing again. Where could I find one of the source information? I know you have a question mark out from them, so I guess you do not know the source of the information either?

It is just a pain to pack in. A interesting note / in the mid 1980's 2 of the bars were found just laying on top of the ground near the ambush site. There are several lost treasure sites in this general area. Robber Lewis was captured and shot near Driftwood. I found a eyewitness account of that capture that gives a detailed account of exactly where they were when shot. Think he may have stashed some loot from the last stage robbery? You can only hunt the area with a detector in the spring and fall. Weeds, bugs and snakes.
    What is the latest news? Are you still looking for it? Did the FBI ever found the gold? Good hunting and good luck.

    Remember, snakes are good eating and free food.

    Not my Question Marks.

    Some sort of Glitch Caused all The Question Marks on Old Posts.
    I was never Told why in Words I Understood.

    All My source Material,
    Mainly from Centennial history Books, When Libraries Were Popular Throughout the N.E.. Magazines, Etc
    Has been Lost to Bad filing Practices that Only I Knew when I Had a Better Memory
    and other events beyond my control.
    like age.

    and health for a long period.

    I Suppose if I Ever find another Place to Live & Start
    removing Boxes of Papers Etc, & Searching Them, I'll probably Find them
    Somewhere. But right now

    So much effort to disprove this treasure legend but no effort expended to prove it isn't real. The United States Treasure Atlas listing - open the book and look at the copy right date. What did you find? Go to the first volume and read how long it took to compile the series. Of course time was needed to compile the listings. I do believe we are well before the 1973 date mentioned.
