    Indian Council treasure

    Posted in Thom Penfield's Directory of Buried or Sunken Treasures and Lost Mines of the United States. Said to contain gold ore and gold nuggets; buried near Merlin in Josephine County, Oregon. Penfield says value is $400,000.

    Have no references to this alleged treasure.

    Indians had an uprising along the Rogue River in 1855. Modoc Indians War of 1872-73 in Northern California and extreme southern Oregon.

    McArthur's Oregon Geographic Names states "Merlin, Josephine County. David Loring, of Portland, for many years engaged in civil engineering in Oregon, and at one time in the employ of the railroad company building from Roseburg to Grants Pass, informed the compiler in August, 1927, that he named the community of Merlin for the merlins that he saw in the neighborhood about 1882. These birds were probably what are locally known as pigeon hawks. John G. Lanterman was the first postmaster."

    According to Wikipedia, a merlin is Falco columbarius, also known as a pigeon hawk.

    I *think* Merlin is a small community along the Rogue River, in an area noted for alluvial gold.
