    Stage coach robbery north of Little Falls?

    I was wondering if anyone here is familiar with a stage coach robbery that happened around the turn of the century? From what I've heard, it happened somewhere between Browerville and Cushing. The story goes that a group of outlaws robbed a stage coach that was loaded with gold bars, but it was too heavy for them to carry (even with horses), so they supposedly buried it somewhere between Browerville and Cushing or threw it in a lake. Apparently sometime in the 1960's or 70's people went fanatic and tore up all of the land in that area looking for the gold bars, but no one has ever found anything. Anybody else here familiar with this old legend?

    Ive never heard of that one. Might have to take a trip to the Historical society to learn more about it. Im suprised that some farmer hasn't hooked into that pile of gold with a plow.

    I don't know much about that one but i do know about one in SE Minnesota that was never found cause the ones who burried it were killed in the shootout.

    Sorry never heard of the story. But it's worth some investigating. I'm researching the Dan Patch railroad days right now looking for more history on the Lakevile area.

    Good luck.
