    This one's on my to-do list. I've been contemplating it for some time.

    Re: LOST FRENCH GOLD

    Jeff, thanks for posting this article. I have been doing research all winter on this buried gold, by trying to locate this mysterious "rock" in the Borie area. According to the Curator of the Potter County Historical Museum in Coudersport, that large rock was destroyed by dynamite...this info comes from an old lady who used to live in the area many years ago. The lady died some years ago, but when the current Curator was young and teaching in schools way back in the 50's and 60's, he said that she told him where that rock was and that it had been destroyed way back when the State Highway Dept. was working on the road from Coudersport to Austin. This is the info that the Curator told to me just a couple of weeks ago. Yet, I have found someone in the Clearfield area who says he "knows where that rock is and it is very large and has a cross carved on it and has some other strange writing on it" and he says "he will take me to it this summer"...such is life in the "treasure hunting detective" work. One doesn't know exactly what to believe. I am still pursuing the issue. I am now trying to find someone who used to work for the state back then who might be able to tell me exactly where it was on the road to Austin that they used dynamite to blow up a large rock. Anyway, I'm still doing research and detective work on this matter. Any help you could offer regarding this story, please let me know...potter poker

    Re: LOST FRENCH GOLD

    Hey Potter,
    I have noticed that sometimes, A person claims they have found a certain treasure or object. Often they have never even been to the area. When in reality they have found it at there kitchen table using some form of dowsing instrument. Maybe a needle or a weight on a string over a map of the area. I cannot say if this works or not. But just something to be aware of. I don't like to rule out anything until I can actually see proof of it.
    Good luck in your hunting

    Re: LOST FRENCH GOLD

    "Remote Viewing" was government subsidised and proven to work several years ago. I know it's a bit of a stretch, but then the find would certainly make it worthwhile! Just my 2 cents.

    Rubicon...in what sense do you mean "Government subsidized"...(hummm...maybe the Gov. would pay me to a "remote viewing expert??")

    Re: LOST FRENCH GOLD

    Operation "Stargate" was a government program to delve into the possibility of remotely "seeing" places in the human mind. Once trained, viewers were asked to describe specific details about a distant location or describe where a person or object was located. X-Files stuff, but true!

    Re: LOST FRENCH GOLD

    i am new to this site and new to MD'ing .Thought i'd put in my 2 cents on this one.I have been interested in this legend for sometime , and i do not think it is in the valley that is now known as Borie, it is to far from the headwaters of the Allegany, and i doubt they would have hauled the kegs that far overland .


    Just my 2 cents anyway

    Re: LOST FRENCH GOLD

    Hey God's Country Girl, I agree with you on the "Borie" gold. During the time the Frenchmen were through there, the area was not listed as "Borie", however, it was "near the headwaters of the Allegheny"...relatively speaking.... The focal point of a search should be that rock with a "cross" marked on it. I have been doing research on this subject for a few months now out of the Potter County Historical Society and Museum. Currently I believe that rock was located some 2 or 3 miles West of the Borie area, near what is now the road between Coudersport and Austin. However, further research tells me that that rock was destroyed in the 1920's when road work was being done. If you have further interest in this subject, send me an e-mail message...potter poker

    Re: LOST FRENCH GOLD

    this is a good one. the area is supposed to be in borie vally, in the late 1600's. they were supposed to take that creek right before warren. why did they travel 50 miles or so east? and to top it off,borie is past coudersport maybe 10 miles or so by river route. according to my book, route 44 runs right alongside the southern stream to borie. you should be able to see that rock, unless this is the road they really mean where the rock was destroyed. i was headed that way today via back roads, got lost and ended up in austin. so we went to roulette to check out halfway hollow, which is now hanson hollow, and it is all posted and i do mean all. but there are some old foundations there. but to get back on track a person needs to find out where these authors get there info from.

    Re: LOST FRENCH GOLD

    As i said in a previous post , i don't think it is in Borie valley.I am thinking it is closer to coudersport.I grew up in between Austin and Coudy ( southwoods ) and i do not remember any rocks that large out that way.Or any that could have been that large.

    Re: LOST FRENCH GOLD

    let's say cornplanter wouldn't let them go up the conawango, so they went further north up the allageny. still being harassed by cornplanter, they went south down the allegheny.here north of port allegany is a marshland maze. at the head of that is rock run, at sartwell on 155. near the head of the allegany, due to narrowing of the river where arrows can easily reach the rafts.

    Re: LOST FRENCH GOLD

    Hey Double Barrel, your post of May 19 states that Halfway Hollow is now called Hanson Hollow. Could you tell me where that info stems from? I have always thought the name "Halfway Hollow" was lost over time, as it does not appear on any map (new or old) that I have seen. My research so far with the PC historical society has revealed to me the location of a small hollow where Dabole Hare used to live, and it seems at this point in time that it was not where Hanson Hollow is today. Can you shed any further light on this matter Thanks, potter poker
