    Never got to Brownsville or the Keys, that was just our jurisdiction. We were out of New Orleans, but we had great radios.Click image for larger version.

    Ace, sorry I just wrote a long story about my wife and I's law enforcement history and deleted it my mistake. Maybe someday I will just write a book about it.

    Short story: We were commissioned by Customs operating out of New Orleans. Wife was one of the first women in enforcement, St Louis, Louisiana State, and eventually federal. I was local assigned to Customs and DEA and ran UC Opps. I got POed at the politics and went private, and traveled the country.

    Question: I received a phone call from a prospecting club member who heard this from another member. There is a rumored cache of gold along the Yellowstone River between Billings and Laurel. We do local lost treasure books and so far haven't come across anything on it. We did find with each book never before published lost treasure stories. The above would be within Yellowstone County if it happened, any more info on it?

    Almost forgot the state, Montana! Jeff the moderator knows me from years ago. Lost treasure stories have a good market with the tourist industry. If you fly into Billings stop in the gift shop they carry mine there. Don't have to hunt them to collect!

    Tiredman, welcome to the club. Sounds like the"Lost Horse-Thief Cache." I collect stores and maps. Grandfather was a riverboat captain and I grew up hearing pirate stories, and looking for treasure. By the time I was six, my cousin and I had dug more treasure then we knew. No metal detectors, just luck, but we did not know it was valuable until it was too late. We were looking for gold and silver, not really old war junk.

    P.S. Try "Buried Treasure In The U.S." Thomas Penfield 1954

    Not horse thief cache, this one I got called about I never heard of before. I would hate to think I missed one less than 12 miles away. Between Terry and Penfield they had over 100 known. So far with 4 released books for the state, I believe I am over 750 pages.

    I might get that one or dig here for extra research stuff. From these briefs we hit the old newspaper files. Lots of good reading in them.

    My book was almost 300 pages, it was about Treasure in Louisiana, (go figure) and I did a history term paper on the San Saba, got an A+, the teacher was from Texas. I knew a lot about that treasure and another close by.

    At my work I have to pick up and take folks to the airport. I tell them about a fellow who stole from the railroad and turned himself in. But he was $994 short, I figure it was the silver. But on the way I say we are about 100 yards of where it is at. Then which book of mine the story is in and they carry them at the airport. I get some tips most of the time, either for the story or to shut up, haven't been able to tell yet.

    The older the city, the more likely it has it's real buried treasures.
