    I never believed that Jesse or frank james ever had much loot left over to stash. No matter what gang of outlaws you look at weather it was the james gang, the daltons or the dillinger gang. The gangs were generly made of of approx 5 to 7 members at any one time and to do any one job weather it be as bank or a train. If they did get away the first thing they had to do was to cover expenses, we don't usully think about it but they did have business expenses especially the james gang or they would not have lasted as long as they did. They had people to pay of, informants, silent helpers, people who would hide them. Then they had to split the money up, all these gang members who have just risk their lives wanted their share and then they also had expenses. They often had extended family members and friends they supported and they each had people that needed to be paid off and of course their was always the general gambleing and drinking, god forbid they wanted to get an honest job. I will agree that some money may have been stashed but not the massive treasures that we might like to believe, I think most of these guys lives from one robbery to the next.

    In today's dollars, based on the price of gold, this would be $16 million - about $175,000/year each for 15 years. I'd settle for those wages.
    ​Adios, amigos - it's been interesting.

    Ya so much of this type of conversation will always be guess work. When some treasure hunter finds a jar of gold coins he claims is from the old frank james farm, it's just a guess. Unless frank left a note in the jar saying it belonged to him there is no telling who buried it. I believe most of the outlaw gangs continued to rob because they needed to, they were running out of money and they needed more, robbing a bank or train was risky business. Look at all the famous outlaw gangs, James, Daltons, Dillinger, The Wild bunch even the greatest bank robbers of all time the Newton Boys, nobody robbed more banks than these guys and they never had enough and when they were caught they had nothing. On the other hand when a gang did make a good haul, often they did have a home and family to go back to or a place to hide out and rather than carry their money around they would bury it in their own "post hole bank" and I am sure there are many of these are still undiscovered and that thought is what keeps me going.

    Hello everyone, new member here, I was wondering if anyone has any more information on the legend that JJ hid some of his loot near Dawson, AL? I have only seen the reference that he may have stashed some of his plunder there, but have been unsuccsessful in locating any more information. I have searched the forums and internet and have not been able to find any connection other than the vague reference, the reason I am asking for help is that I live just a few minutes from Dawson and one of my sons recalled seeing "JJ" carved in a rock where he used to Hike, we are planning to go hiking in the area again to see if he can remember where he seen it at. The hunt is on!

    We just inherited a coin that, according to my wife's family's oral tradition, was tossed to her great great grandfather by Jesse James after the Ocobock Brothers' Bank robbery in Corydon, Iowa.
