    Oklahoma metal detector sites

    It's been said that there aren't any good sites in OK. I will start it off with one . Wonder if there are many on here from OK.
    Roger Mills County: In the late 1850's, a group of mexican miners transporting gold dust and nuggets from the Colorado gold fields was attacked by a band of Indians as they neared the Antelope Hills just NW of Crawford. Before the attack, they hid the gold in a cave on the slope of one of the hills and hastily made a fortress in the rocks. Only two escaped and the gold was never recovered. A Mexican ancestor appeared in the area in 1905 and dug in the Antelope hills for several months without success. Over the years erosion had completely consealed the treasure cave.
    Ghost townes in the area: Clifford,on SE slope of Antelope Hills, 3 mi.NW of Crawford.
    Hamburg, on the Washita River, 5mi S of Durham.
    Redmoon, On the Washita River, 12mi NW of Cheyenne.
    Downey, 3ni NE of Roll.

    Looks like there are at least 13 Okies, but it looks like they are the silent type. Frank

    Re: Oklahoma metal detector sites

    Slim, What county are you in?

    Cold Springs: about 7 Mi W of upper Cimarron Springs
    Well used campsite & battleground
    Many relics and artifacts in the area
    some researchers think caches are awaiting here as well

    Any one hit this site yet? Feedback helps us all. Let's work together.

    When the price of diesel drops I might get in my MH and give OK a try maybe some of us can work together. Frank

    stoop, well I tried but they didn't like the activation key they sent me. So I gave up.
    I'm not much for all this coding stuff.

    Re: Oklahoma metal detector sites

    Hay Slim here's one. Cleveland County: A party of Mexicans were on there way from Mexico to St Louis with a cargo of gold bullion worth $500,000 when Indians Massacred all but 2 of the party.The gold was dumped into a spring and never recovered. Later in 1895, searchers armed with a map believed the hoard was located on the (then) farm of John Savage, 10 mi E of Norman. There were no reports of success.
    The thing here is to go thru 1895 land records to find the farm and then google the location to see where a spring might have been or still is. Any one looked for this one? Frank

    Re: Oklahoma metal detector sites

    OK Adrian, here you go. Garfield Co. Only ghost townes listed, but they can be the source of many relics.
    Harperville,NE of Billings, 1894-1900
    Cropper,on RR,3mi E of Breckinridge
    White,5mi SW Garber, 1894-1903
    Bloomer,5mi SE Garber, 1893-1901
    Barr,5mi S Drummond, 1899-1906
    Let me know if you find anything, Hay how about a ghost town video. I use to shoot videos. Here's a tip. When you scan from point to point do it slowly. take about 10 seconds. It holds the attention. Good luck. Frank
