    Texarkana Bank Robbery 1894

    Hey folks, I thought I'd share this tid bit that as a kid, I actualy heard from the last surviving "horses mouth" so to speak.
    My gr grandfather was a teenager and fell in with a couple of older brothers and their Cousins in N. Cent. Texas on a spree of livestock theft.
    They would travel to Oklahoma (Indian Territory) sell the stolen Texas stock, steal in Oklahoma, going across to Arkansas, then head back south through the Ouachitas. They were broke when the got to Texarkana, and decided to rob the First Nat. Bank there. They were caught on the banks of Big Cypress Creek just south of Mt. Vernon Texas, but they had buried the "loot" on the banks of that creek. Now the site where they tried to cross in under a lake.
    Of course, no body has found the money,and I do feel like it was paper bills and had disintigrated prolly before the robbers even got out of prison.
    Beer beer beer said the corporal, its hardly fair but none compares to the U.S. Cavalry!!

    wow...super old post, but has striking similarities to the bowie TX bank robbery of 1894.
    you still around johnnyreb?

    would love to know more, as we all know that authors of some of these seem to twist details
    sounds like you have a pretty darn good source!

    spent a lot of time in that area last year, between the two lakes, so i guess i was real close to whatever may have been left of a 100+ year old pile of cash!
