    There are no ancient secrets to decoding the past, there is only great research and applied logic.

    Ok. In my research I found a story about a retired Scottish pirate. He bought a farm somewhere around Warrenton and new Baltimore. Snow hill farm 400 acres in 1760. He buried 6 casks containing $10,000 worth of whatever. The farmers name is William Kirk, whom died in 1779( I found in courthouse documents his will was filed in Faquier county May 3rd 1779) he left the farm and $60,000 in currency to his wife. Some years later a poor farmer working the land found a cask, quite and bought his own farm and equipment to the tune of roughly $10,000. The rest was never found. Now I also found a book titled Virginia Ghosts (jenny lee and marguerite du pointlee) which tells a story about Snow Hill farm being haunted a couple locals Aleck Smith, and George Grey found the farm but were chased away by the ghost of William Kirk.

    The farm was sold to a col. William Edmonds. Don't know the year.

    Now the poor farmer that found the first cask, don't know his name just that somewhere around 1870 this tenant farmer found the cask giving a small amount to Edmonds grandson whom still owned the farm keeping the majority of the find (Spanish silver and gold) for himself.

    I can't find where the farm was, and have incomplete information at best.

    I know this is a little old but sparked my interest since I live just around the corner and my fiances parents live in New Baltimore. I'm curious if you found any more data saying where the farm is? I know of a neighborhood with a similar name but that is it. I need to do a little searching.

    I have pirate William Kirk's Will and I don't think there is very much treasure is there to find. At least that is according to his Will. There may be some small caches from others but William Kirk's assets are accounted for and was sent back to his home country and relatives.

    That is the trouble with a lot of these stories. Research will rule out most of them. I tossed this one to the side a long time ago. The treasure buried by John Singleton Mosby is another treasure that you can seek but you won't find. Yet these treasure movies and magazines will keep hashing them over and over.

    Col. Mosby (CSA) returned the ppl's jewelry back to them; Gold was "used up", & Silver is still not found, according to my R & I.

    What silver? The money hidden after the capture of General Stoughton did not happen. Mosby died a pauper. If there were any treasures he knew of that was buried by his Partisan Rangers during the Civil War, he, Mosby would have had it dug up and used it.
