    Re: lost adams ?

    I found this area with the roads at maps.live.com.
    From Redrock (Not Red Rock) take HWY 464 East (Connor Rd) Tun Northwest on Game Dept Road at fork go West Brown ranch road, curves to the North, continue north about five miles and you find an area that might match.
    WIsh I lived down there I would go for a look.

    It's Apache Box - N32deg56', W108deg59'. People have pushed this location as the Lost Adams Diggings for years. Trouble is, there's no placer gold there.
    ​Adios, amigos - it's been interesting.

    Re: lost adams ?

    from wpa

    The first time I saw Mr. Brock I was riding behind my father to camp. Father said "Son, here comes some one with a large gun." It was in the winter, and was very cold. Father asked Mr. Brock to return to camp with us, which he did. He had been to our camp, but left as we didn't return to camp early. Mr. Brock said: "I killed a deer up here and you can have it if you will go get it as it is too far for me to carry to my camp. "The next morning we went with Mr. Brock to where the deer was, and a wildcat had been there. Mr. Brock remarked that he just as well have his skin as anyone else, and left. That afternoon father and I were cleaning out a slue when one of us happened to look up and saw Mr. Brock standing on one of the highest peaks with the skin tied around his waist. Mr. Brock come off the side of that cliff as fleet as a deer.

    Mr. Brock was raised around the Indians, and to many is very queer. One never knew when to expect him at their elbow laughing, because he scared them. At dawn he might be at your camp some five or ten miles from his camp, and at dusk thirty miles away, and he was always a foot.

    He has a gun that is marked T. S. V. which is generally believed to belong to the Adams party. The Gold Gulch country must be where the Adams Diggings are located for Mr. Brock found the gun in a cave in the Gulch. The land markings suit the Adams discription. The mountain that resembles a womans breast can be seen. I have found several 45-70 Rim Fire shells in the Gulch, and several cradles that were made with pegs for nails. Mr. Brock used to come in with some nice nuggets and told us that he thought the Gulch was where the Adams Diggings were. He later showed us the gun that he had found with the initials carved on it.

    There is a hole in the Gulch formed by water falling from a cliff in rainy weather. In this hole one can see a heart with an arrow through it and turkey tracks in the rocks. How the Indians got in the hole to carve signs is a miracle to me. The sides of the hole are slick and curve slightly. There are many cliff dwellings around the Gulch, and Pit dwellings are found all along the range of mountain

    Re: lost adams ?

    Brock ranched about halfway between Silver City and Lordsburg. Gold Gulch was (is) a source of placer gold, but nothing like described in the LAD legend. The placer deposits 20 miles north in Pinos Altos were well-known and better producers in the LAD era (allegedly the mid-1860's).

    Re: lost adams ?

    Does anyone know about a gentleman whose last name is "French"
    He wrote a very detailed book about Adam's Lost Diggings
    He (Mr French) and his wife got details on The Diggings
    and then
    Traveled to Arizona, where "Adams" began his trip (Stanton)
    and then
    Following, the information/leads, that they had gathered...

    Went,
    step by step, foot by foot,
    and this is all written & described in the book
    They went from Stanton Arizona thru the "White Mnts" over & into New Mexico
    Following, what "Adams" said/described
    To where they actually found the "Twin Buttes"
    AND!!!!!!

    Re: lost adams ?

    I haven't done much research on the Lost Adams other than what I have read on these forums, and of course, a few books, but actually looking for it no. I live in the general area where a lot of the searching has occurred for the Lost Adams. But like most Th'er curious about most Lts and legends.

    Re: lost adams ?

    You know ?
    I have reread the book several times and even traced out the route(s) myself
    Mr French has done a lot of good research
    He has come up with a lot of factual info
    Plus,
    He and his wife, have actually followed all of this out, by going out into the field
    He!
    Plus!
    How many others have searched for the "LADs"
    Including "Adams" himself !
    Only to return, empty handed!
    Question !!
    Is there something missing in all of the search info?
    It could be a very simple omission, a missing direction, etc. etc
    Quien sabe!!!
    But!
    There is something.....
    I have lived & Prospected in both Az & NM
    And!
    I have noticed ONE! thing that kind of asks/suggests a question ?
    Anyone else see this?
    Hint:
    Check out the route "they" (The Adams Party) took from Arizona to The "Diggings"!
