    Scaley Back Mountain Oklahoma

    Chronicles of Oklahoma
    Volume 4, No. 1
    March, 1926

    Somewhere near 1873, an Indian by the name of Lindsay, lived 16 miles southeast of Claremore, on a mountain known among the Indians as the Scaley Back Mountain.

    Lindsay owned a great number of cattle which he herded over the prairies east and south of the mountain. Some Indian tribes living on Claremore Mound, some six or seven

    miles northwest of Claremore would come down to this mountain and hold a pow-wow, drive off a great number of his cattle, and eat them during the feast.

    Lindsay finally decided that at some time they would probably kill him and all of his herd would be lost, so he drove them out in the night, and after some scheming, he got them to Denison, Texas, where he sold them to some large ranch owners there, the sum has been unknown for certain but according to tradition, Lindsay must have realized somewhat over twenty thousand dollars, a large part of which was paid in gold.

    He made his way back home, and buried the treasure in a ravine overlooking the present prairie where Choteau stands. The next morning he was found by an uncle from Kansas who came to see him. Lindsay was dead. He was buried on the mountain, but his treasure was never found.
