    Confederate Leader Bob Lee's Treasure

    Some of the gold was found in the 1960s but much still remains lost. Click on the link to read the whole article.

    "
    We took on the challenge searching for the gold. Driving down dirt roads we found the Lee cemetery and where Lee lived. A creek 300 yards from the cemetery was where some of the gold was actually found by a resident, Hoot Gibson, in the 1950's.
    "He got off and got it and it was a crock jar and wrapped in burlap and sealed. He said he thought it was awful heavy and when he opened it and it was full of 5, and 2.5 and 5 dollar gold pieces," said Grimes.
    Some of that gold was sold to Grimes' friend who lives in Bonham, but there's thousands of dollars of gold still buried somewhere which provides an adventure for people like 21 year old Steven Baker..."

    I don't think so, cw. It looks like the famous Hoot Gibson lived most of his life in other parts of the country.
