    Would this be the book titled, "History of the Counties of McKean, Elk, Cameron, Potter, Pennsylvania"? If so, it was published in 1886. I don't know if it mentions the gold in it.

    I saw a copy of the same book and I was going to purchase it but it was copyrighted in 1923. Still a long time before 1970. But like you I did not know if the story was in the book or not?

    The two spots on Bell Draft are camping places. You can go there and camp with your horses for free. BUT everything you take in you have to take out EVEN THE HORSE MANURE !! I have been there many times but not camping just riding my horses. There are MANY marked horse trails there. It is on Thunder Mountain Trails.

    I just came back from the library and after going through the Elk and Cameron County section, I saw no mention of gold in Dents Run. Or any mention of Pinkerton detectives being there. I had the date wrong. It was published 1890, not '86.

Strange though the book was published in 1890 and no pages are missing according to what is written but the pages are missing 99 and 100. The librarians could not explain this so where did you find copies of pages 99 and 100. I checked at the Elk County Library in St. Mary's and the Sewickley Library, Sewickley said they have had their copy for over 100 years. So how did two important pages go missing yet the text still matches up? There is only one other explanation and that is you must have gotten it from another book or you found the original copy before it was published in 1890. Can you explain please.

    The 2 page printed text in Sarge's post aren't photos of the original 1890's text because the typeface is modern It appears a similar font to "Comic Sans" which was invented in the early 1990's. If you look at old books they use a typeface similar to "Times" or "Roman".

    If they are from the 1890 or 1923 history book, then they've been reproduced on a word processor or PC.

    Apparently the missing pages were reproduced on word processor and that's what Sarge has (a hand-typed copy of the 1890's history).
    The only trouble is those pages are not in the original 1890 copy. I had two different copies checked plus the newer revision copies and those pages are not in any of the books. Where did he find those two pages if they are not included in the 1890 copies.

    The text mentions Route 120 - which according to PAHighways.com and wikipedia , wasn't "named" until 1926.

    So there was no Dent's Run Gold story before 1926?

    There is a large collection of county histories in the Carnegie library. Some county's have several. I came across this story in one. I had a interest in the story and copied it for my own use. I do recall being surprised fining it It was in a book on another county. That was over ten years ago. I looked at so many I can't recall which book. It was for my use only so I did not keep track. I had the story. I thought you guys would have a interest. So I shared it. I'm in Arizona and have moved. on. I have other things but after the reception I received on this thread those items will not be shared. I can assure you I did not pull that story out of my ass.

    That's odd Franklin. Were the pages cut out or just not in the book. I suggest a trip to the Carnegie in Pgh. To look through their copies. It's a bit screwed up there. I found a account of Robber Lewiis capture in a separate file from the county history but the heading was Cameron Co History. I made copies of that also.

    On page 100 the beginning sentence for the last paragraph on the left hand column states, "More than 100 years have passed, and nothing further is known of the lost gold or the men." That makes the story on those pages contemporaneous with that 1970's article someone mentioned a couple pages back. Must have been some modern stuff intermingled with the county histories in that book.

    You have a good point. I found a few differences in that story that helped me in my search.

    No you need to read the story closer at the bottom of the second page left side. It says that "more than one hundred years has passed" This would place this story as after 1963. Still not much older than "Treasure Magazine 1975. I do not believe this gold shipment ever happened. It was made up from a story of the "Buckhannon, W.Va. payroll that went missing in June, 1863.
