    I am going to Orestes, IN this week to investigate the location of the cabin. I believe I know where it was located, and there hasn't been much development in the area. His father was one of the first settlers in the township and played a critical role in the development of Alexandria, IN, I have located his farm as well. Interesting side fact, his grandfather in legend was supposed to have been kidnapped from London and brought to America as an indentured servant. The reason I bring up the family, is because of the wealth the family as a whole. The family from what I have researched did very well in government real estate, and natural gas wells.

    This is what I ask myself when deciding to pursue, why would the money still be there? His kin were well off, and maybe not in the want or need to dig up their eccentric family members land. Coming from a very hard working, money saving lineage it is plausible he saved almost every penny.

    He called his cabin "Three 80's", does this mean anything to anybody?

    I wonder if this story has slipped through the cracks...
    Perhaps an old ... "Remained overlooked" by THrs till even now...
    OR because of "rural" etc....
    OR no electronics have made a sweep yet due to beings somewhere where "no one really does it OR hasn't there" situation...

    Jeff this article may be the "light" on a forgotten spot.

    This could be a...
    "virgin permission in waiting".

    PS> It would be interesting to talk with a few local elders around town...
    See if any of them "ever heard of the man and his story"...
    Hear what they have to say if anything about "whatever".

    I will be doing talking to some of the locals tomorrow when I head, I will have an update this weekend. Three 80's is 240 acres that his father gave him, I did some research and it is a pioneer saying. Also have found out that he was an expert gunsmith, and everyone wanted to use one of his guns during shooting contests. Even if there is no good, it would be interesting to find a gun.
