    Why Does "Curse" Never Mention George Greene's 1955 Efforts?

    Doug Crowell wrote about Greene's boreholes starting at the Shaft 2 (Chappell):

    "These test holes were arranged in a straight line, at distances of two, six, ten, and fourteen feet out from the North wall of the Chappell Shaft (Shaft # 21). It is remarkable to note that, in the first three holes, Greene discovered Oak timbers every ten feet in his core samples, all the way down to the 100 foot level, which parallels the Money Pitís Discovery Story. Did this cigar smoking Texan successfully relocate the fabled Money Pit? His fourth hole, at a depth of 100 feet, encountered Oak timber eight inches thick, a void of ten feet, and eight more inches of oak timber, under which was a massive void of forty-five feet in depth. Greene tried filling the void with 100,000 gallons of water, but it all ran away somewhere.

    Perhaps these logs at 10' intervals were destroyed by Dunfield's money pit dig. And why wasn't there water in this void?

    You know what they say when it sounds to good to be true, right? This is a lot like the alleged Duc D' Anville rendez-vous journal that apparently confirms every detail of the earlier mystery. It doesn't exist when you actually go looking for it. It only appears that it could have existed if you have a shallow look at it.

    There's no reason to believe there were ever well spaced platforms, a stone at 90 feet with hieroglyphs on it and an inner vault there, and yet people happen to report exactly that and not anything else. If we knew that this had ever existed and that it had been confirmed that would still be suspicious, but this is piling on to a detail that we know belongs to a myth (that of Enoch's shaft/vault). If that actually existed on OI then start asking yourself why it is that someone is interested in staging that myth a that place. You eliminate a lot of candidates if you do that. IMHO, anything that is echoing the details of the earliest myths in the form of a literal find is highly suspect. I'm fine with there being a suggestion of a mystery there, but thinking there is a literal equivalent to the stories to be found is not advisable That's not how allegories work.

    When we hear the story it sound like the logs fill the entire hole... and that makes no sense. Perhaps small platforms for ladders makes sense... and some pulley at the top to extract soil.

    here are some original docs about him

    George Greene | Oak Island Treasure

    You see the final one has him claiming to have photographed Noahs Ark.

    Maybe not much is said about his reports as people may of questioned the reports of what he was claiming to have found.

    One page 3 of this article it was interesting to read that it was his uncle that financed the 1904 search.

    My guess would be the logs he found were previous searchers leftovers as the location of the actual pit was unknown in 1955. Layers of wood and strange cavities would seem to indicate other peoples previous shafts.

    But you are right no one ever talks about his search efforts.

    It is also interesting that in this 1950s article the report of the Oak tree also has just marks on it that they guessed were from a block and tackle the same story told by the descendants of the original finders. Not an actual block and tackle.

    They did talk about Greene around the time of the C1 can going down, and finding the same large void in the same area as Greene and Dunfield.
