At one time he owned nearly 400 acres. Before his death he was of unsound mind and lived the life of a recluse in a log cabin one mile north of Orestes. He kept two ferocious dogs and carried knives for protection for he believed someone was trying to poison him. He is survived by five children. Mrs. Louisa Doan and W.E.

    I live in Alexandria, let me know if I can help . There could have been a log cabin in a lot of fields but we might be able to narrow it down

    That's a great story/lead.

    It seems odd that a story would print like that, while the man was alive.

    It could have sent all manner of bad people his way.

    Anyone ever come up with an address for this property ?
    It might be advantageous to contact current owners and bid out a split...
    This has very good potential.
    Surprised this thread has not received any new info as well.
    Some due research from hard core local or a somewhat local could perhaps shed some light on the current "status" of said "hoard".

    Which undoubtedly is there if no later story of it being found.

    Just by the article ... this is a 10 on a 10 scale of "potential".
