    Re: Jim bowie's treasure

    IMHO - Bowie learned of the location of "a cave of silver" - that was secreted away in Texas in 1639 by Indians who had revolted in silver mines - where they were enslaved in northern Mexico.... after he married Maria Ursula de Veramendi.... the daughter of the Viceroy of Mexico.

    Bowie never found the treasure, but looked quite a lot in the Llano / Menard area of Texas.

    There is at least one person here in this forum, that has spent MANY years looking for it - and may have actually found it.

    I would not give much credence to anyone who claims to have made such a discovery WHILE asking for funding. (this or any other discovery)

    Just my 2 8)

    Re: Jim bowie's treasure

    Harley, the tale of the mummy is part of my research at this point in time, so I don't want to disclose to much on that subject. My area of interest is El Camino Royal and the area encompassing "No Mans Land". Jim Bowie and Jean Lafitte were connected with some of their dealings, so that opens the door to big money on the dealings with slaves and contraband. It is my opinion that Jim Bowie, held Central Louisiana as his home, till his death. There are all kinds of stories that link him to Texas but Texas stories seem to get blown out of kilter and made bigger than they really were.

    Hey Marc, didn't you have info on it or something but couldn't get permission from the land owner so you could check it out or something like that? I don't remember if it was that one, but I remember reading something of that nature.

    Would be cool to find, but also suck if the state or feds came in and took it all after it was found!
    If I was President; I would take away welfare! I wouldn't make any bargains with foreign countries! I wouldn't take #@*& from any country! I would close the borders! I would get rid of taxes! I would make EVERYONE own at least 5 guns! I would ENFORCE Finders Keepers Law !!!!!!!!

    Re: Jim bowie's treasure

    It is not all about money, the state of Texas will be called in to take charge of all things found, however the state have not looked for Jim's treasure, have not invested one thin dime , have oneone looking for it, this treasure is not on state or goverment. Land, this treasure will go to court according to my attorney and the law school a SMU, states that in their judgement, on judge or jury will give all of this treasure to the state because the state has no one looking for this and has never looked for this treasure. This treasure is historical famous, it need to be recovered, when I pass it will never be found, if you want a part of history contact me, the state of Texas will give me a finders fee of $ 10,000 that's my next step, if no one will help me. There is many other ways to recover all funds from our find, good morring American interviews , book rights andovie rights , dig tours , hell someone could sell hotdogs. Thank you for any help, you won't be sorry. I want to answer all questions anyone has, someone said this treasurehunter posited back in years past about another treasure, I did it was a treasure about lights of the golden circle , this treasure is located , contracts are befor the city of sunneyvale Texas, the city tell me they need a new mayor that the mayor will not approve anything the city concel wants to do , so I will wait on this to happen ,this treasure is valued over 2 billon dollars most in gold it took 28 years to locate. Another question was what in jim's treasure , 500 Jack loads of gold and silver taken from the spanards contact me at txtreasurehunter@aol God bless

    You may want to contact Floyd Mann. I haven't heard from him in a while but try his e-mail: losttreasureusa1@aol.com
    If that doesn't work try: frmpink@aol.com
    He has resources and experience. You probably have heard of him, if not just google his name.

    Also you might contact the History Channel, they may want to film the whole expedition.

    In that case you may want to re establish contact due to the town having a new mayor, David Byrd.... actually he is the towns 4th mayor since 2004

    Hey guys you all have a great point about needing funding. If I was this person I would let the owners come up with the fuding for this treasure maybe even the state cuz they will get it anyways unless you can claim the mineral rights the treasure hunter or home has no rights as to the minerals in the ground. I guess if I could sell my swamp land down on key largo I could have the funds LMAO sorry man just ribbin you is all HH and God Bless you on your quest for this treasure....

    Good morning does anyone have any idea just what the physical size of $ 2,000,000,000 of pure gold is - present value, let alone then?
