    I just found this post. I live in Vernon County and I will check with the historical society on my next day off and post what they say later.

    Here is what I found out. The cannons could still be in place.

    I contacted the Vernon County Historical Society and he had never heard the story about the cannons or seen the article from the Rich Hill Tribune. He told me that General Price crossed further West on the Marmaton River. The Marmaton River is a 102-mile-long tributary of the Little Osage River in southeastern Kansas and western Missouri.

    I e-mailed him the link and a copy of the article from the Mexico Weekly Ledger. He stated he will do more research on this and let me know. I have also asked to be a part of any recovery effort and detect the surrounding area for more historical artifacts.

    After Christmas I will try to go by the county courthouse and see who owns that land now. Two problems with locating the cannons. One is that the course of the Osage river could have changed and the second is that there is now a 1,500 acre Missouri state wetland/conservation area to the East of Schell City.

    Will update when I find out more.

    The site of the old Kiltz mill is actually on private property. PM me if you want a map, I'm happy to share. I live in Mid-Missouri, so the chances of me 1) going there and 2) getting permission are not likely

    I was there in 1978 with a canoe strapped on top of a B210 Datsun with a detector coil with a 25' cable. The water was no where that deep. The owner at the time said he didn't care if we looked. He had lived there for a long time and never saw them. Lots of people before us looked for them with no luck. We didn't find them either ,must still be there.
