    The story of the Dents Run Lost Gold is under way. We will be showing clips of our treasure hunt and explain what we think happen to the lost gold. Clips will be on Face Book and U Tube soon. DVD's will be sold in the Dents Run area and on our web site. We cannot tell everything we know because there is a movie company and a TV network looking at what we have but what we plan to show will answer most of your questions. It took us 8 years of work to get this story out and I hope we can get to the truth by June 15th. Thank You

    Update / Check this out . Our TV show will be on March 15th on H2, History Channel 2 at 10:00pm

    America Unearthed: Hunt for the Holy Grail The Holy Grail is one of the most sought after treasures of all time, and one treasure hunter thinks he knows exactly where it is. He invites Scott Wolter along on his quest to find it, and the result is a North American treasure hunt of epic proportions. Legends, a treasure map and the results of ground penetrating technology all point to the Grail being in a single location--a holy well on the property of a rumored Templar Prince. What Scott finds in and around the well will shock even the skeptics in this edge-of-your-seat season finale.

    I don't get it. What does the Civil War gold have to do with the Holy Grail?

    I don't know but Friday night 10PM is America Unearthed: Hunt for the Holy Grail

    I personally Believe in the Dent's run treasure.

    I Don't believe in a Holy Grail, unless it's a cup that the holes rotted through it,
    from it being very old.

    or it's a story, that's got so many holes in it, it is unbelievable.

    But Just My opinion

    no I think Oak Island, Which is a waste also.
    My belief the only holes ever dug on
    Oak Island were dug by Treasure Hunters.
    re filled , and redug by more treasure hunters


    nobody digs holes that deep, with that many traps,
    to bury a treasure.

    the water is natural the layers were where each digger over the years
    gave up, Re filled (or caved in) & moved on.

    this is a personal opinion: I can't prove the grail is part of a fairy tale.
    and they can't prove it ain't

    Well, that is Dennis in the video preview, so I guess there may be a side story on his search for the Civil War treasure.

    Any of you guys seen America Unearthed before? It falls somewhere between Indiana Jones and hunting Bigfoot on the credibility-meter.

    I was enjoying America Unearthed, until everything he looked at convinced him of
    the Templers. then it started getting boring.
    & when he switched from just the Templers
    to the Holy grail, I started thinking fantasy show.

    he even looked at an Exxon sign and called his buddy quick.
    I think he was suggesting it was the Knights Templers carved the Exxon sign

    Agreed. I saw two episodes. The first one he started talking about alleged Viking runestones in the mid-west, (which have already been proven hoaxes). Second one was a spring-house in north-west PA, which he thought was a ceremonial washing pool built by the Knights Templar. Anyone from PA could tell from looking at it what it really was. But someone paid to fly him to Ireland to talk to "experts" on ancient stone structures? I don't know if the host really believes what he is selling or just laughing all the way to the bank.

    I fear that being on this show would do damage to one's credibility. Just my opinion.

    I just watched the unearthed grail show. Kind of a waste of time. I applaud the effort by finderskeepers, but two things really irritated me - that Sinclair "descendent" said he was "probably a distant ....". WTF, probably? No certainty of genetic lineage? The word "could" was way overused. In the end, anything could be anywhere(including the Bradford Forrest).
    There was another thing also. The d__kbag forensic geologist host was cussing to add drama. He should have just worn a skirt and a wig.

    Like to keep this string going, but move off the America Unearthed discussion. Would like to suggest anyone with historic documentation on this legend post it here. It would be great to see some information sharing on this. The oldest written account I have seen is from the article in Treasure magazine from the 1970s. But there is a much more detailed account from the Cameron County History published in the 1990s. That account, written by Mary Skinner, seems to be based on an earlier written account which I have not found yet. But there seem to be direct quotes by Connors in it, possibly from the military investigation.

    Has anyone come across earlier written accounts, or actual Army records or such, they would be willing to post photos of here?

    According to Conner's testimony, he changed his story. When on the interrogation 'hot seat' he said that they buried Lt. Castleton and then a fierce battle ensued, but then he later recanted and said he did not remember? But he apparently previously had told the people in Lock Haven that bushwhackers had wagon jacked them and killed all the men?

    Assuming that what he blurted out during the interrogation was the truth means that the men fought against each other over the gold and somehow they all shot and either killed or wounded each other and Conner was the only one left to see them all die from their gunshot wounds? Who knows, he may have put some of them out of their misery? Or some may have helped him bury the gold before they died?

    The story goes that while he was drunk he had blurted out that he knew where the gold was. If that's the blurted truth again then most of the bars are probably buried at Dents Run less maybe a few he carried out on a mule?

    Some accounts have Connors making it out to Lock Haven, others have him only making it to a farm owned by a Mrs. Walker, who sent her son to Lock Haven to tell the Army about Connors. Apparently, Connors collapsed after he arrived at her house, and she found the journal Castleton had given him and a written order requesting help. Some believe Connors spent considerable time with Mrs. Walker. Hard to know what the truth is about all this.

    I'd love to see records of those military inquiries. Supposedly, one was held at Clearfield, which makes sense as there was a Povost Marshall's office there for this region. Later inquiries were likely held at Carlisle. Unfortunately, all the records from that era that were kept at Carlisle burned in a fire.

    Great stuff! I'd like to see that diary/journal.

    In this scenario, Conner's is a 'hero'. I think if Conner's was a 'straight shooter' and a hero, he guides the investigation to the 'crime scene' and the actual truth is revealed, with the Gold? But his 'hero testimony' (of all the men dead) is questioned by the Army? unless we believe he is telling the truth that he did not remember what actually happened?

    I think Conner's testimony, although important, is not as important, in my opinion, than the eye witness accounts like Mrs Walker, and any corroborating first hand knowledge and actual facts that can be obtained from the 'crime scene': the dead bodies and their locations, the purported items found by the locals, the wagons and their location? and the purported bars found? I think all these small facts could be put together to recreate what actually happened?

    Another account has Lt. Castleton on his deathbed and some of the men (maybe 3 or 4?) sent to Driftwood for help (Doctor?). This would most likely have stopped the mission altogether if Castleton was unable to continue the trip in his present condition? So they probably would have set up camp and wait for the detachment to return with help while they waited and tried to nurse the Lt.? It would seem to me in this scenario that Conner's being a guide would have led this group to Driftwood?, unless he thought they could easily make it on their own? (I think Driftwood was only about 20 miles from Dent's Run? --1/2 day by horse?).

    In either scenario I think the mission was soon to be scrubbed with the looming death of Castleton and a repository for the bulk of Gold had to be made in the ground. In this case though, if all the men died as Conner's purported, then the detachment had to return but unknowingly are followed back to camp by Rebel Bushwhackers.

    How Conner's escapes is probably because he was dressed in plain clothes, a civilian guide??

    Perhaps the gold was stashed in the Lt's grave which is located not far from the ambush site. The grave is well hidden and I gave my word I would not disclose the location. The Lt can rest in piece
    After watching the HC2 show I now understand why so many empty holes are being found by a certain group. Flawed equipment. The look on their faces was priceless when the drill turned up nothing. This type show can set you up and not show you in the best light. My friend Freddie from Gold Show Alaska is a good example.
    Hmmmm I wonder if I pointed those coat hangers at the Superstitions I would find the LDM. See you later guys. I can see the mountain from my pool. I was thinking of making a big dowsing rod. I can get on my float in the pool holding the rod and see where it points on the mountain.
    Sorry I could not help myself. I have a lot of friends out here in Arizona digging empty holes too. Come to think of it I dug one at Ted G's buried painting site. Was fun.
