    Tp, Not my worry, The Alzheimer is kind of fun, no one expects a birthday present from me. I write notes to my self and can't remember what I did with it. I have had a non aggressive cancer for a very long time and now I think I have to decide what to do with, but will I remember that when I see the Doctor? I like remembering things I forgot about. I have started book of my favorite memories, I know I did, but where is it. It is fun remembering them.

    Good night.

    Tp, like I said, if you give the name of the tribe I can tell you where they were. I think they started keeping track of them as soon as the ship hit the rock. Plymouth, that is.

    Ace, thank you for asking, is there anything particular you had in mind? Gold, silver, Civil War? I know one person who wants to find old rusted metal stuff. Are coin shooting? I checked out your area and it looks like there should be a lot of spots. I haven't look into any of my book, but I know I can keep you busy checking out leads. I use to work work with some guys from that area and would love a trip down memory lane. Among many of my problems is the onset of Alzheimer. I can remember sixty years ago like it was last week, but can't remember if I ate breakfast. So give me your best shot and I will give you mine.

    I know I replied, but in my rush to get out of the house I must not have hit the post button.
    Civil War: All along the old railroad tracks, especially at water crossings. During the CW, the armies moved along the rail lines, and usually made camp near fresh water. The one most used in your area was running east to west along the old Southern Mississippi Railroad.
    Outlaws: Adams, Calhoun, Claiborne, Greene, Hancock, Harrison, Sunflower, and Warren Counties.
    Indians: I live on an Indian Mound, High in the center with a ring mound running around it, like a bulls eye, but don't dry to dig here, my wife will shoot you. She has a nice collection. My brothers mound is shaped like a horses head, I say a dear head, as seen from the sky. Indians needed several things, height to stay dry, water to drink and usually travel. Just about every high ground was used by the Indians. Also rivers and streams for fishing and travel.

    Ace, I had an atlas of civil was sites that showed the locations on a current street map. I lost it and a lot of other stuff in Katrina. I have been trying to find one ever since. It was from a group trying to preserve Civil War sites. I will try again to find it but check what I have. "I shall return" Douglas MacArthur

    Ace I posted the CW maps I have of Jackson. Did I tell you to check in the "Club & Hunt" section? The last time I looked there were a lot of people trying to form clubs in your area and looking for hunting partners. Your best shot of finding CW relics are along the old railroad tracks at water crossings. Both sides in the CW posted sentries at all water crossings to keep anyone from destroying the bridges. The crossings were not where they are today but were very close. Today's RR's tend to have less curves to improve the speed and reduce derailing the train. Most troops moved along or near the old roads for speed, only a few rode the train. To find the old roads you need to walk into the woods and find the ruts made by people, animals and wagons. I have hunted along some of these old roads and you should know it when you find one. People would make camp just off the road and usually bury their valuables away from the camp because of the highwaymen who roamed the roads at night. Good Luck

    Way to go Ace. Is it gold plated? Some of the V nickles were gold plated and passed a New $5.00, gold peaces, known as Counter-fitters Nickles.

    I good news: Today 9/18/17, I read an articular that stated the Trump administration is trying to role back the land grabs of the Democrap administrations and restore our uses of our land to us. There may be a future for Treasure Hunters yet.
