    I found this map at one time, I will have to find it, if I remember right it does not add up to the layout of the area including the river.

    Re: Barrels of english coins buried in Cross City area

    I just quickly read through the posts, and I haven't done the research, but there has always been a rumor that Baird found pirate money on fowlers bluff...but it could have been this money....Im sure he wouldnt be perticular...

    this is one of the accounts that I found...

    GAINESVILLE, FL There is a tall tale, deep in the swamplands of Florida, along the banks of the Suwannee River near a place called Fowler's Bluff in Chiefland. There, it is said, pirate Jean Lafitte sailed up the river and deposited millions of dollars of his "earnings," burying three chests in the quicksands of the bank. It was this treasure that was reputed to have been found years later in 1897, when sawmill owner Emmet J. Baird whose business was going through some rough times tried his luck at finding one of the boxes.
    Following a treasure map and instructions given to him by a fever-ridden old man on his deathbed, Baird gathered a small group of men and spent the next three months trying to raise the dead pirate's booty from the sunken ground. Whether or not he ever found what he was looking for has remained a mystery, a secret locked within Baird and his descendants, yet the rumors all point to his success:
    Baird's sudden disappearance, slipping away in the night
    A broken lock, found at the dig site by a former workman
    Baird's reappearance in Gainesville, where he opened the Standard Crate Company and
    purchased what is now know as the Baird Mansion, a 5,400 square-foot, three-story Second French Empire-styled home built in 1886
    The sporadic appearance of old coins in the hands of the Baird family members
    throughout the years.

    Fact or fiction, the intriguing story found its way into a "Saturday Evening Post" article in 1945

    There are no ancient secrets to decoding the past, there is only great research and applied logic.

    All these stories of treasure buried 13' - 20' deep in Florida. The water table were I live is 2' and most of Fl is 3' - 6'. No one buried treasure deeper than that believe me... It would be impossible without modern pumps.
    Looking for a hunting buddy in or around Deltona Fl.

    FORT DUVAL AND THE SUWANNEE RIVER
    Location:23465 SE 349 Hwy
    County: Dixie
    City: Old Town
    Description: Captain Francis Langhorne Dade, U.S. Army and his 120-man Companies A,B,D,H and N, built Fort Duval in November 1826 at the mouth of the Suwannee River. The structure was 140 by 130 feet and six feet high with portholes for firing. The fort was named for territorial governor William Pope Duval. Fort Duval was built to guard the mouth of the Suwannee River. Indians used the river for many years, traveling to Cuba, the Bahama Islands and other places to trade and purchase goods. William Bartram witnessed this in his travels in 1774 while visiting the Indians up river from its mouth. In April 1818, General Andrew Jackson used the river to transport his wounded back to St. Marks after his Battle for Billy Bowleg’s Old Town, located on the Suwannee River. Fort Duval was destroyed by May 15, 1841. At that time, Capt. Cambell Graham wrote of Lt. Palmer’s survey of the mouth of the Suwannee River in search of the remains of Fort Duval. Time and tide have destroyed all traces of Fort Duval. The Suwannee River now carries fishing enthusiasts and sportsmen.

    I used to live on the Suwanee, spent much time on the river. There were guys I would see out there by where it meets the Santa Fe river diving all the way down the Suwanee on any giving day.They worked that river for years no fear of gators or gars. I can only imagine what they pulled out of that river.
