    Re: GA gold "Waterhouse treasure" possibly on "Rocky Face" mountain.

    Amigos, This thread is starting to get awful contentious. Can we go back to the original question of gold on Rocky Face? I(grizzly bare) am a believer in the Waterhose treasure for a couple of reasons. The most important is that I personally tracked down two descendants of the folks who actually walked in the cavern and saw the gold. (Okay, they didn't actually see the gold. What they saw was a stack of copper bars. They took 8 of the smallest bars out of the cavern. That evening they struck one of the bars with a knife and 'skinned' the copper off and revealed the gold underneath. True, no one tried this on the 4200lb. bars in the cavern:they could all be solid copper)
    Each family had old journals/letters detailing the find. Yet the two journals differed GREATLY in how to get the last 1/2 mile to the cave entrance. In letters Walter Mullins wrote to his younger brother many years after the find, he talked about an argument the 7 men had when they went back to Rocky Face the second day. One group wanted to go one direction, the rest wanted to go an oposite direction. The party divided and neither group could re-find the cavern. Bill Waterhouse spent 20 years and most of his family's money searching for the treasure. It seems odd to me that a man would lose his family, his own money, and his mom and dad's money if he had not seen something. I can't speak about the other five men, but Waterhouse and Mullins BELIEVED that they had found, and lost, a great treasure.

    Re: GA gold "Waterhouse treasure" possibly on "Rocky Face" mountain.

    2nd point of congruity in two journals was the tale of finding cave. While on a hunt the dogs followed something into a hole. The men started to try to dig out what they thought was a raccoon. After 10 minutes they had opened a hole into a cave. They made torches out of pine knots and branches and went into the cave. The two journals disagree about who found the meandering tunnel out of the cave but agree that Waterhouse had two of the men go outside and gather either "an armful" or "enough to last all day and night" of torches. The men followed the inside tunnel for approximately 45 minutes before they found the main cavern with the stacks of bars. 9inches by 9inches by 6 feet. for the most part. others were half as long and a few were either shorter or smaller in size. 8 of the smallest were picked up by the 7 men and carried out of the cave as proof that they had found something. Hours later one of the men (journals differ) remembered a legend of gold in the mountains. Mullins pulled his 'copper' bar from his haversack and used his hunting knife to stroke or slice the sheath off and exposed the gold underneath. Strange tale to put in a journal if it isn't true.

    Re: GA gold "Waterhouse treasure" possibly on "Rocky Face" mountain.

    Soldiers digging a pit for a powder magazine in 1833 at Lompock Rancho, California, hacked their way through a layer of cemented gravel and discovered to their amazement the skeleton of a giant man about twelve feet in length.

    Along with the skeleton were found carved shells, large stone axes, and blocks of porphyry covered with unknown symbols.

    The skull of the skeleton also had a double row of teeth, both upper and lower.

    Authorities ordered the find to be reburied with all the artifacts found with it, and the whole excavation was lost and never studied.

    Interestingly enough, this skeleton bore a remarkable resembalance to another which was discovered on Santa Rosa Island, just off of the California coast. Complete with a double row of teeth both upper and lower.

    Re: GA gold "Waterhouse treasure" possibly on "Rocky Face" mountain.

    In his book, The Natural and Aboriginal History of Tennessee, author John Haywood describes "very large" bones in stone graves found in Williamson County, Tennessee, in 1821. In White County, Tennessee, an "ancient fortification" contained skeletons of gigantic stature averaging at least 7 feet in length.

    Giant skeletons were found in the mid-1800s near Rutland and Rodman, New York. J.N. DeHart, M.D. found vertebrae "larger than those of the present type" in Wisconsin mounds in 1876. W.H.R. Lykins uncovered skull bones "of great size and thickness" in mounds of Kansas City area in 1877.

    George W. Hill, M.D., dug out a skeleton "of unusual size" in a mound of Ashland County, Ohio. In 1879, a nine-foot, eight-inch skeleton was excavated from a mound near Brewersville, Indiana(Indianapolis News, Nov 10, 1975)

    A six foot, six inch skeleton was found in a Utah mound. This was at least a foot taller than the average Indian height in the area, and these natives- what few there were of them -were not mound builders.

    "A skeleton which is reported to have been of enormous dimensions" was found in a clay coffin, with a sandstone slab containing hieroglyphics, during mound explorations by a Dr everhart near Zanesville, Ohio.(American Antiquarian, v3, 1880, pg61)

    Ten skeletons "of both sexes and of gigantic size" were taken from a mound at Warren, Minnesota, 1883. (St. Paul Pioneer Press, May 23, 1883)

    A skeleton 7 feet 6 inches long was found in a massive stone structure that was likened to a temple chamber within a mound in Kanawha County, West Virginia, in 1884. (American Antiquarian, v6, 1884 133f. Cyrus Thomas, Report on Mound Explorations of the Bureau of Ethnology, 12th Annual Report, Smithsonian Bureau of Ethnology, 1890-91)

    A large mound near Gasterville, Pennsylvania, contained a vault in which was found a skeleton measuring 7 feet 2 inches. Inscriptions were carved on the vault. (American Antiquarian, v7, 1885, 52f) click here for full article

    In 1885, miners discovered the mummified remains of woman measuring 6 feet 8 inches tall holding an infant. The mummies were found in a cave behind a wall of rock in the Yosemite Valley. click here for full article

    In Minnesota, 1888, were discovered remains of seven skeletons 7 to 8 feet tall. (St. Paul Pioneer Press, June 29, 1888)

    A mound near Toledo, Ohio, held 20 skeletons, seated and facing east with jaws and teeth "twice as large as those of present day people," and besides each was a large bowl with "curiously wrought hieroglyphic figures." (Chicago Record, Oct. 24, 1895; cited by Ron G. Dobbins, NEARA Journal, v13, fall 1978)

    The skeleton of a huge man was uncovered at the Beckley farm, Lake Koronis, Minnesota; while at Moose Island and Pine City, bones of other giants came to light. (St. Paul Globe, Aug. 12, 1896)

    In 1911, several red-haired mummies ranging from 6 and a half feet to 8 feet tall were discovered in a cave in Lovelock, Nevada. click here for the full article

    In February and June of 1931, large skeletons were found in the Humboldt lake bed near Lovelock, Nevada. The first of these two skeletons found measured 8 1/2 feet tall and appeared to have been wrapped in a gum-covered fabric similiar to the Egyptian manner. The second skeleton was almost 10 feet long.(Review - Miner, June 19, 1931)

    A 7 foot 7 inch skeleton was reported to have been found on the Friedman ranch, near Lovelock, Nevada, in 1939.(Review - Miner, Sept. 29, 1939)

    In 1965, a skeleton measuring 8 feet 9 inches was found buried under a rock ledge along the Holly Creek in east-central Kentucky. click here for the full article

    A Pygmie Graveyard in Tennessee
    Anthropological Institute, Journal, 6:100, 1876.

    An ancient graveyard of vast proportions has been found in Coffee county. It is similiar to those found in White county and other places in middle Tennessee, but is vastly more extensive, and shows that the race of pygmies who once inhabited this country were very numerous. The same peculiarities of position Observed in the White county graves are found in these. The writer of the letter says: "Some considerable excitement and curiousity took place a few days since, near Hillsboro, Coffee county, on James Brown's farm. A man was ploughing in a field which had been cultivated many years, and ploughed up a man's skull and other bones. After making further examination they found that there were about six acres in the graveyard. They were buried in a sitting or standing position. The bones show that they were a dwarf tribe of people, about three feet high. It is estimated that there were about 75,000 to 100,000 buried there. This shows that this country was inhabited hundreds of years ago."

    Re: GA gold "Waterhouse treasure" possibly on "Rocky Face" mountain.

    There are some interesting links, and definitely some things that are hard to explain. Most of the "giants" seem to have been found in the 1800's/early 1900's, which was prime time for traveling shows to show faked oddities. It'd be interesting to see some of these things, unfortunately, pretty much all of them are missing for one reason or another.

    Thanks for posting them. I'm going to go through them as I have time.

    another reason these findings might have ended so long ago, is that it was probably not against the law to dig into graves, or mounds then.....now it will earn you prison time.......not too many museums then either, so most all probably were reburied and forgotten with time.......................gldhntr

    ok so i read the tread... just to play devils advokate... no-one belived the celipcamp fish was still alive or real until one was found about 50 years ago not to mention that about 40% of all species have only been found in the last 50 years. so tons more are out there to be discovered. plus just crack open the gueniss book of records to see humans that are super sized as well as mini.

    no where is this place cause im into paranormal and ghost hunting stuff. I think it would be kinda fun to fast for a week and go find a few elves and bring back evidence. they dont seem to hurt anyne just trick them so as long as you dont get lost your ok.

    message me GLD we can set up a trek.
    scouring the central NY area for treasure always happy to get leads and buddies to dig with and learn with!

    Re: GA gold "Waterhouse treasure" possibly on "Rocky Face" mountain.


    I live very near the Keith Community where Mr. Waterhouse lived and Rocky Face Mountain. I have heard of this story for years and many people have searched for it.

    I have heard of another lost mine story all my life. A man who lived in my community by the last name of Thompson, was a friend of the Indians and they showed him the entrance to a silver mine, yep I said silver not gold, but it is said that he marked the entrance with a hatchet so he would to be able to locate it later. I have no ideal the time period only that his grandson would be in his 80's if he is still living. Arrowheads and some other Indian relics are found in the area. It is one of those stories that people talk about some, but I have never been able to find out much more than what I told you. I always thought it was interesting, but as time goes on, stories have a tendency to change when told by different people so who knows?
    And the story is the same as the Waterhouse, he was never able to find it again.
    And as for the mooneyed people (don't want to get into an argument, just letting you know that it is a local Indian legend) but on Fort Mountain near Chatsworth GA, there is a rock wall that the Indians said that the Mooneyed people built.

    Georgia Girl,
    I haven't done enough research on this treasure because I just got too scared back in the day. I am originally from Oklahoma and still have relatives there. I visited some of them and got an elder to start telling old stories. He pointed me in the right direction and gave me some family names to check on. My people swear by these legends. Do I believe that my family is a bunch of liars? Hell Yes! But this seems true because I SAW.
    Thanks for the interesting bit of history. I hope to be down that way later, I'll see if I can find that wall and leave : corn meal, a feather, a small stack of oak leaves, and a bowl of water. Maybe the old one's will know that they are still remembered.

    Thanks

    the wall is easy to find, you can go on the web and search for Fort Mountain, there are several websites and some have some interesting stories regarding the history.

    I know this topic hasn't been open for quite some time now, but I must say this... Just because you are not there to witness any of these things doesn't mean you have to be such a buzz kill to someone else who is just merely stating their story and experiences. I can sit here and tell you many things I have seen/witnessed in my life time and really could care less if you believe me or not. Keep your opinions to yourself. Perhaps you should research these happenings and have an open mind about things.

    This is supposedly in my neck of the woods. I may look into it further, as I would love to see some real life trolls (not just the internet message board kind).

    Evening grizz, georgia gal, and the others. I have posted in TN inthe past of the last giant near here, Chinapas, Chich. being killed in the late 1800's or early 1900's. He was about 10+ ft tall. Yes, red hair, double row of teeth.

    I also posted on swimming in the Fuerte river and seeing a giant eel like serpernt in the river also. It was estimated to be about 30 meters, dark green with striated light green stripes, also a miniature viper of light brown color, 'Pichiquate', considered highly venomous, of about 10 " long, and inspected a group of ruins on top of the Mesa on the southern side of the arroyo Gloria Pan that are scaled to people of around one meter high..

    Up at Tayopa, my mine, a Mexican found a sealed cave. Upon opening it , expecting to find a treasure, he found two of the giant skeletons wrapped in a matate. He was so mad that he threw them down the cliff.. I told him that he had indeed found a treasure and that I would pay him well for them. He is looking .

    About 1 days mule ride to the north east from Los Camotes, Sonora, is a hill shaped like a bell. It is appropriately called 'La Campana'. It has many caves which the giants used for burial. There are many skeletons there. The skull that I saw was about twice mine in size.

    I have a close association with the Yaqui Indians, I was shown artifacts of people of about one meter tall, the original Yaqui. They said that interbreeding with strangers has gradually increased the tribal size to normal now. Interesting story about the Yo' obwa.

    The Coral snake here is over one meter long, again the Herpetologists that I notified have failed to respond, so I no longer try.

    In another nearby burial cave I found the skull of a young woman of about 22 that had had two childern, Her skull was no higher than her eyebrows, it had been almost flattened. There is no known flat head culture any where near here.

    I have sent various letters to different Universities regarding these things, only to be flatly ignored, since they KNOW that these things just 'do not' exist, snicker.

    Isn't science grand?
