    Love these off beat stories as I think some of them have more potential than more famous treasure legends.

    Well done Jeff

    Well done Jeff
    I agree because they are allot less Known & In many cases Virgin Sites.

    Not putting it down But The Confederate Treasure has been Followed since The Civil War..
    With & Without Metal Detectors.

    My Guess this one was , Most likely Completely forgotten about by the turn of the Century.
    They obviously figured If it wasn't Inside his Fortified House, someone in The family appropriated it.
    My Guess after The Robbery, If the rubbers didn't wipe him out Financially , He may have Decided to
    Bury it where no one would look.
    Outside.

    & Now we have Detectors

    Even So, Even if I'm way off in my Theory. It's a Site to Detect with Permission
    That may have been ignored. While everyone tries the farms around Gettysburg one more time
