    What do you think about Roy Roush?

    I have read Roy's books on the subject of the KGC and wanted to know your opinions about his books. Is he a "leading" authority on this subject? Or should I read some other authors books?

    Actually Dr Roush's books helped me to realize that I was at A KGC site....For years I had been walking past many clues that were hidden in plain sight....The numerous pictures in his books helped me to confirm the type of trail that I was on.

    Dont take one mans word as gospel...read all you can on a subject and keep an open mind. Reading any book will not bring about a quick and easy recovery....this happens only after many, many hours and countless disappointments in the field.....Steve

    Keep looking!

    Roy is a nice guy and truly believes what he puts in his books but the majority of the information is just a re-hash of all the other books out there about the KGC treasures. He hits the highlights and tells some good stories but in my opinion, that's just about it.

    I wouldn't consider anyone who believes in the the KGC mega depositories a "leading authority" on the KGC. No big surprise there I guess.

    Big Hoss (KGC), long time no hear.

    I do think the KGC put down some small money caches just like most groups of the time and some "supply" caches likes guns and ammo and other supplies, actually I'm positive of it , but I don't think any of the money caches would be too big, probably nothing over $5,000 face and more than likely it's going to be more like $1,000 face or less, just my opinion based on my research.

    Alec:

    Can you elaborate on the munitions/supplies you are "positive" the KGC
    put in the ground? Seems to me that would be a big deal to any KGC searcher.

    I have talked with Roy on a number of occassions and he is a nice guy. I would have to question anyone who thinks J. Frank Dalton was Jesse James though.

    I know of a small weapons cache (all rifles) that was recovered in the 1970's that belonged to the KGC.

    Drinking iced tea... HOT! DANG hot! Anyway... I have the three books on KGC by Dr. Roy, and wiil get get the one he wrote on Jesse James. I LOVE 'em, in that he has OLD info, pics, etc which "future" research COULD elaborate on. I also have Bob Brewer's book(s), and read HIS web-site" occasionally (blog). In terms of a "leading authority", have found NONE... just do R & I (Research & Investigation) and put the "pieces" together. I think it is "state-specific", in that KGC "purposes" COULD have been "different" for each state, with a GENERAL purpose of REBUILDING the SOUTH, after the Civil War, since the "slave trade" etc. was OUT! Gotta go with the AMERICAN KNIGHTS, after the Civil War. I think Texas Jay does FINE work on his TEXAS "sites", and I think TEXAS was a HOT-BED for KGC activities... which COULD have looked like OUTLAW
    "activities". SO! Get Dr. Roy's books, get Bob Brewer's books, etc. Do yer own R & I.

    Re: What do you think about Roy Roush?

    Pertaining to Roy Roush:

    I believe he is an educated man. He has had a lot of different experiences. He has written several books. I enjoyed reading them. (the ones pertaining to treasure hunting are the only ones I have read. 3 ) I also found them to be somewhat repetitive. ( I have bought a lot of books in the last 30 yrs. or so just wishing to find that one new clue that I needed to solve a puzzle. Even though they may not have helped me solve anything...they may have helped someone else solve theirs?) Some of the rock pics in Roy's books I have seen in the field....that I found helpful....to know they are found in other areas too.

    Re: What do you think about Roy Roush?

    I know Roy well, he is a great guy and a long term treasure hunter. He has done
    tons of research on many different treasures and has a huge stack of research
    material. Some material of course will be found in different books, it all has to
    be put together to make sense. I would of course read everything I could if I
    was interested in a particular subject. One thing about him is that he won't
    intentionally give false directions or info as some authors have done in the past.
    Another book worth reading is "Open Fire", Roy's book on his experience in the
    South Pacific in World War Two. He was in the assaults on Guadacanal, Saipan
    and Tinian as a Marine. He has certainly paid his dues.

    Re: What do you think about Roy Roush?

    I don't have Roy's books but the few I have tell some things and leave some things out.....on purpose?...maybe ....so they can
    write another book.....

    You have to be able to read between the lines and put 2 and 2 together and study everything on your maps! Everything means something and if you look hard enough and put your thinking cap on, you will figure it out.....What I have found is.....creeks on maps are not always creeks, same for trails....trails may be creeks....Dates will be more than dates......say for example the
    date 1844.......it may mean the "1" is on a survey grid line of plat map, the 844 may mean 844 chains, varas, feet, etc.to a plat map grid line or marker in field or it may mean 1+8+4+4=17=1+7=8 , 8 may mean a "H" or "Foot print"
    Got to love puzzles and have a knack for making things work in the puzzle. I have even take a magnifing glass to stare at marks on a map to finally see that that mark made a number that could barely be seen....and that number will be the biggest clue and the smallest mark....

    If you have solved your map correctly, then all the indicators, Dates, lines, words, numbers etc, will all make sense TOGETHER and put you in the right area. Man made it and man can decipher it.

    Re: What do you think about Roy Roush?

    For KGC mega-millions, read Orvis Lee Houck, or Howk, or Hawk, or Jesse James III, whatever name. Read everything on him, then draw your own conclusions. He pretty much started all that. Also J. Frank Dalton. I do not believe he was the real Jesse James, but he could play to a public fascinated with old time outlaws.
    Just like Texas in 1880.
