    What is the source of those assertions of the story ? What book is this ? Read again closely and ask yourself "says who?"

    Tom I would like a answer to that question also. Where did that story originate. It was well before the others. All the counties in Pa had a large county history published. 4 to 10" thick. They are the official history of each county. The Carnegie Library in Pgh has a copy of each in their reference section. Some of the books are so old they are falling apart. So if it's in the county history someone thought it was part of their history and important enough to include it. I admit I was surprised to find the story included. I would browse through the histories looking for leads. Find something of interest I'd make a copy and move on. Needless to say I found a ton of info. Rather than concentrate on treasure books or mags I found the histories more accurate.
    I'm no longer in Pa so I'm passing some stuff I copied on.

    We have county history around here and most of it is dated 2015. So sure if they saw a story posted by Francis Sculley they would presume the story to be correct and add it into their county history to attract tourism and the money tourist can spend. What is the copyright date on that history book is it before 1975?

    sgtfda: And your pages in post # 286 are from nothing of the sort. They are not from history or period-contemporary sources. The whole tone is of the "once upon a time" type writing style. It's from much later .

    The next day my right knee started clicking and hurt like hell. I've been resting it up. This thread caught my attention. Though I'd post some things that could help those still searching. My knee is feeling better and I'm off again. Upon reflection I prefer the trolls on the Lost Dutchman thread. Though I did make a few new friends on this thread.

    The choice is yours: A) Answer the contrary view (which was to question the origin & dates of this legend) or B) Name call . (Which does nothing to lend to the logical pro/con discussion.)

    Re: dents run treasure

    Dennis, When you mentioned possible Spanish Treasure it set of a bell in my mind. I have a very old news article about a Turtle Carving in rock not to far away from Dent's Run. I haven't gone to the site yet. I often wondered if it could be Spanish or Native Indians. There were Indian tribes in that area, but I also think that the Spanish came exploring up the river.
    Interesting, Clayton


    I've seen this

    Unfortunately, it is just some really cool rock graffiti. I know the property owners and they said that it wasn't there when they purchased the property.

    I would also like to know if they split up and divided the gold, how on Earth did they cut the gold bars in half for the Pinkertons to find two and one half bars of the missing gold?

    That county history that sgtfda is referring to was written about 1886, give or take a few years.
