    MAY HAVE BURIED HIS WEALTH..........Daughter is investigating story of Treasure found on Farm..............When Michael VOISIN who owned a farm near Troy died many years ago he was not known to have been especially well fixed and the farm on which he had lived for years in the course of time passed into the hand of a man named Jacob PRESS. But a daught of Michael VOISIN, by the name of Mrs. William SCHROEDER, living at 908 Lami street in St. Louis was in the city this week and was conducting a quiet investigation into a rumor that she had heard to the effect that in taking down an old smoke house which was a landmark on the old homestead where she lived as a girl, PRESS had come across a considerable buried treasure and Mrs. SCHROEDER is convinced if this is found true that the money is wealth buried by her father during a certain period when he was trying to conceal his assets to prevent them from falling into the hands of his first wife, from whom he was separated.

    Mrs. SCHROEDER states that Michael VOISIN and his first wife became estranged and after much bickering the woman left him. At this time VOISIN was known to have a considerable amount of money, thought by Mrs. SCHROEDER to be in the amount of $23,000-$30,000. After the separation, Mrs. VOISIN made a number of efforts to receive what she thought was her share of the wealth of her husband but all efforts proved unavailing as no assets could be found. VOISIN had converted everything he could dispose of into cash and no trace of the cash could be found, and it was always supposed that VOISIN had buried the money some place. Afterwards VOISIN secured a divorce and married again, and at the time of his death was not reputed to be wealthy and no trace of the wealth reported to be concealed ever was found as far as is known. But Mrs. SCHROEDER has heard the rumor and was confident that if she is able to get proof that such a treasure was found she will be able to legally recover a share of the money. Mrs. SAM WRIGLEY of Collinsville is anothe daughter of the Michael VOISIN mentioned and it was at the WRIGLEY home that Mrs. SCHROEDER was staying while in the city and the ladies would be much obligated to parties knowing of any evidence, communicating the same to them.
