    Colbert treasure found!...maybe?

    Was browsing treasure legends between Alabama and Tennessee and had come across the Colbert ferry treasure legend in Alabama...

    "A considerable amount of gold and silver coins is to be buried in the woods East of Levi Colbert's house. In the early 1800s, Levi lived in a house
    near the ferry he operated on the Tennessee River which became known as "Buzzard Roost." It is located just off the Natchez Trace Parkway, 2nd exit after
    crossing the Tennessee River heading south"

    Then reading a post from jeff of pa about the Natchez trace treasures, saw a small point in an article he posted and it said...

    "In 1903 a paducah, KY., tobacco merchant, Morton Ravenal, descendant of the Ed Ravenal slain on the trace almost a century before, took note of the occasional discovery of coins along the trace brushed up on family history and set forth along the Notchey in search of buried treasure. In the vicinity of Colbert's Ferry, since replaced by a bridge across the Tennessee river, he dug up a hoard of approximately $30,000."

    So what do you think? Can we say case closed on the Colbert treasure or should we suspect there to be more?
