    Ok Folks, I sneak around treasurenet from time to time and I long forgot my log in so I made a new one cause this one interests me. I have some relations up in the catskill region and have spent time up there fishing and such. So i did some casual internet research and figured I would share. Who know if this was a publicity stunt or not. Otto Hillig had a castle in the Liberty Ny area. Info about him here Otto Hillig | Sullivan County Historical Society
    Castle

    Below I will go point by point with things I found of interest.

    William Ayers mourned Liberty's first death.

    History of LIBERTY Sullivan County New York

    In 1797, a child of William Ayers, who had become a resident, was so badly scalded that it soon died a painful death. This was the first death in the neighborhood, and it became necessary for the community to select a burial-place. A spot was accordingly chosen near Nathan Stanton's, on the Blue mountain, and there in the virgin soil, among relics of the wilderness, themselves fit emblems of mortality, the body of the dead was laid at rest, while its spirit, undefiled by wilful sin, ascended to the bosom of the Friend and Saviour of little children. Its grave was not long the only one in this "God's acre."

    The fish won't bite at the Western part but begin the hunt, its OK to start.

    Could this be the Here?

    Blue Mountain Cemetery looks over Otto's treasure.

    Blue Mountain Settlement Cemetery | Sullivan County Historical Society

    Blue Mountain, also Blue Mountain Settlement Revonah Mountain Child identifies this as the initial settlement in the Town of Liberty.

    Broadhead Points to.

    https://www.google.com/maps/place/Re...9!4d-74.768086


    Brodhead Pond; also Broad Head Pond Revonah Lake The Broad Head Pond designation appears on the map enclosed in Child's Gazetteer (1872). "Brodhead" or "Broadhead" is a family name applied to the pond in question. There's no historic basis for the "Broad Head" (two separate words) designation. The "Revonah" designation was in place by the time of the Liberty Centennial (1907) as shown by use of the term in the Centennial booklet. William Cogswell tells us that the pond was owned by one A.J.D. Wedemeyer, a wealthy German who lived in the United States. In the 1880s he re-named Brodhead Pond to Revonah Lake, in honor of his birthplace, Hanover, Germany. (See also the notes on Wedemeyer Place below).


    Dr. Blake Wales knew it as two log houses.

    History of LIBERTY Sullivan County New York


    In 1799, Doctor Blake Wales came from Windham, Connecticut, and commenced the practice of medicine in Neversink, and spent the remainder of his life in that town and Liberty. He visited the Blue mountain settlement during the first year of his residence. He recollected distinctly in his old age that the village of Liberty in 1799 had but two buildings, and they were made of logs. One of these stood where the dwelling of Timothy F. Bush now stands, and was occupied by John Russell; the other near the site of the Midland Hotel, and was owned by Jason Fish. Among the principal men of the town of that day was, according to Doctor Wales, a man named Champlin (the grandfather of Elias Champlin) who lived on the Amos Shaw place, and was quite intelligent, but very convivial in his habits. He afterwards died while sitting in a chair at the tavern of Luther Buckley. The Doctor's reminiscences of old times generally corresponded with what we have written, with the addition that every building in Liberty township, when he first visited it, was of logs, and generally with but one room.


    Lucky me, I'm in the Queen's back yard. If you can't find me, you haven't looked hard.

    Could this reference a queen anne style house?


    The Lennon Building holds a clue.

    Grady's horse kicked the spot.


    No idea


    The coin is in the open.

    Seems clear

    Liberty Public Service was there in my time.



    From the inside of Manion's Store the Mongaup will roar.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Manion%27s_General_Store

    note the mongaup creek/stream is near this on map



    Mr. Manion's home plate.

    No idea other than above

    Ugly Acer rubrum on the rade, then 30 paces and you will have in made. Turn to the right if going at, turn to the left if walking back.

    Acer Rubrum refers to a Red maple...according to search

    The municipal corner is basically nutty.

    is this a nut tree reference?

    What once was Hortonville, now is not.

    Sullivan County NY placenames that have changed

    Liberty Falls Ferndale Changed circa 1900 at the behest of the O&W Railroad due to confusion in mail addresses.
    Hortonville Liberty Falls, then Ferndale (see above) Hortonville was an early name for Liberty Falls, in honor of an early settler named Horton, according to Child
    .

    You are very close at number one, the plague is a spot which you should plot, go in and eat, and count the feet, from there to here, let's have a beer.



    The lens of my camera has revealed the spot.



    Now in its place is a restaurant which has food that is fine. Descramble the words on the bar and you will be one step closer to being the star.



    As you pass by behold and see in a restaurant across from the old 'Big G.' My works live on and hold a clue to find the coin now known to you. Enjoy the food and have a ball, examine all the pictures on the wall.

    O Tsuga Canadensis, protect me!

    This according to google is a Eastern Hemlock tree.

    This is it, you have all the clues. If you do find me call the news. Fred will know what to do, he the treasure to give to you.

    Ok thats all i got. I am guessing if it exists it must be somewhere between the old grossinger resort and manions in ferndale ny. But that is a large area....can someone boil it down more. I have driving through liberty and ferndale and by the Big G countless times... if nothing else this is a nice trip down memory lane.

    Ok I found the above report of a gentlemans field trip around sullivan county. Towards the end of it he references the Lennon hotel with O and W rail stop across from it. The 2014 picture seemed familiar. So i poked around google maps of Liberty and I think this is it

    https://www.google.com/maps/place/Al...!4d-74.7473489


    You can see it a bit from the street view of the nearby street. Not sure how that fits but its another part
