    Jennings, Oklahoma $11,000 in gold

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


    Just west of the town of Jennings, Oklahoma, are a couple of low, rock strewn hills which bear a marked resemblance to each other. Around these centers a legend of buried treasure.

    With a cavalry escort a government paymaster on his way to Fort Sill camped for the night between these Twin Hills. Rumors of Indian troubles which had caused the escort to be sent along were confirmed when the camp was suddenly attacked that night by a band of Indians. A defense was hurriedly formed in the rocks on the hills and the party prepared to hold out until a messenger could break through and bring help. All efforts to slip by the Indians were unsuccessful and the diminishing party was forced to the decision that the only chance for anyone lay in a bold dash through the approaching circle of savages.

    The money, $11,000 in gold, was hastily buried where it could be found by those who should escape, and then the dash for freedom was made. Only five of the entire party succeeded in breaking through the net drawn about the camp, but when they returned with the party which came in pursuit of the Indians, they were unable to find a mark which revealed the location of the buried money. Appearances indicated that the money had not been discovered by the Indians, and it is said that it has never been found

    wonder if the "3 men" banded together and returned tears later to "find" the "lost" money as a group---as payment for the "blood shed"---- Ivan

    I have never been here during daylight, but was here 3 times in 1990. The area between the two small hills was graded off, loaded, and hauled away years ago by the govt. thus removing all skeletons, graves, and possibly the loot as well. It would have at the time of our search taken an act of congress to access the land, because the landowner knew the story and was mad as heck at the snakeroot diggers he was continually chasing away. He put it this way: "I don't want any more damned holes up there."
