    Re: Lost treasures in Indiana

    The tale of Morgan's buried treasure in Knox county is un-true. General Morgan was never near Vincennes. He landed at Maukport after crosing the Ohio River in southern Indiana. Vincennes is roughly 135 miles NorthWest of Maukport. Morgan headed North to Corydon and then went East towards Ohio. He never went West at all. Here is a exert from a historical account by the county treasurer in Versailles, Indiana.

    At Versailles Col. Morgan Demanded the funds from the safe of the county treasurer. The treasury was in charge of deputy, B. F. Spencer, who had safely buried the county funds hours before Morgan arrived. He opened the safe and gave the rebel leader the cash, $5000. A number of purses also lay in the safe. "What are those?" inquired the raider.

    "They are purses of money placed here by several widowed ladies for safe-keeping," the gallant Spencer, of Kentucky blood, himself answered the Confederate leader.

    "Keep them safe. I never robbed a widow yet", was Morgan's farewell word as he ordered his men to remount and to ride . . .
