In 1950, Ringling Brothers set up there Circus was there in the summer. I know because I was too young to go. In 1951, they were in the field across St. Bernard Hwy. from the Chalmette Monument. I do not think either has been checked with a M/D.
    I'm gonna go check it out and don't you worry about leads that don't work out its part of the hunt. I appreciate everything you do for me and that's the truth.

    Truth, when I was younger Virtue Street was just tomato fields on both sides of Paris Road. Later there was a junk yard on the east side of Paris Rd. There was an old legend that a brass cannon was dumped into the swamp on the north side of the levee west of Paris Rd. about fifty to one hundred yards off the Old Paris Rd. My thought was if they knew it was there why didn't they get it. I did find a yellow Jag XKE, in the canal but when we went back with a wrecker it was gone. There ware a lot of old vehicles in the swamp, I remember an old bus that looked like someone was living in it and a Ford Model T. If the cannon story was true there should have been military there. The person who told me was a close friend who in now dead, and his Great-Great-Grandfather was the person who warned the Americans that the British were cumming. At the Marina there was a plaque that had that information on it. I don't know if the British had brass cannons or not.

    The first picture is the spot where the circus was. I hope you find some more silver to add to your collection. Across the street is the first school I attended C. F. Rowley

    I am not going to wish you luck, I do not want to jinx you, so I will just say have a good day.

    Johnny, his G G G-father would have been one of several that warned everyone. One, of course, would have been Paul Revere (at least history says so) and another was a woman. Also, if you say the British were cumming.... I'll take your word for it (ha ha!). ╦╦«

    Terry, I am sorry I should have stated "The Battle of New Orleans, 1814" not to be confused with the second Battle of New Orleans, 1862. Thanks for keeping me straight.

    OOPS! I will also clarify. I was thinking of Boston (one if by land, two if by sea). Sorry. ╦╦«

    Truth: There is a couple of places we have over looked. If you want doubloons, the area near St. Bernard Hwy. The parades pass there, so you should not search there unless you like digging. Along the area near the railroad tracks, between the hwy. and the government property. Writing this I am thinking, "I hope he is not in jail."

    Not yet! lol I get enough doubloons I got 2 today at the local park. I have left far from the house, a permission fell through they had a change of heart. Ugggh. I'm telling you Johnny I have a obsession for that old silver. A gold ring doesn't even do it for me like old coins do.

    I just checked on my grand daughter and she still has all of the Coins I gave her. Maybe when she gets older she will start treasure hunting. Her older sister is a "Gold-Digger" She is not looking for Mr. Right, unless he is Mr, Rich. Catch you later.
