    how many haunted stories are related to treasure stories?

    I know alot of stories about ghost are related to them guarding treasure. do you think it has something to do with the family trying to protect it? what stories have you heard in NY that are ghost and treasure connected?
    scouring the central NY area for treasure always happy to get leads and buddies to dig with and learn with!

    Re: how many haunted stories are related to treasure stories?

    there is a legend in the catskills that a tory fleeing the rev war killed a slave to bury with some silver plate
    to protect the treasure.my thoughts that these tales are conjured up by seekers because you don.t want anybody around while you shove an iron rod in the ground,dig holes,flip rocks etc...
    mostly a pirate tradition,do not be surprised to find a skull with that great find because I am sure it has happened.as for ghosts themselves leading you to treasure is a different story.I heard of a story from
    hyde park ny that a worker renovating an old house was led one night by a young women to a wall that held
    old land deeds with king george,s seal.even if you do not beleive in ghosts don,t you feel like you are being watched once in a while @ those far away old places .

    You know it's a good day when you not only have surface finds of Pulltabs, but pull two out of the same hole.

    The Catskill legend you speak of is "The legend of money hill". It supposedly occurred on the outskirts of Downsville and is still searched for to this day. After some quick research I came up with this one and a couple others I will post in the near future.

    downsville is about a highwaymen called paul reubens and his hideout locals call money point.I am refering about
    a tale near woodstock.

    I am sure there may have been cases that two people went to dig a treasure hole and one of the people
    did not want to share and there is already a hole to hide the body.
    You know it's a good day when you not only have surface finds of Pulltabs, but pull two out of the same hole.
