    Wagon load of gold in Wisconsin

    Polk County:

    Lost Treasure
    A wagonload of gold, worth $200,000, was buried in a swampy area
    south of Balsam Lake. It was buried seven miles northeast of St. Croix
    Falls by miners returning from Montana. Unfortunately they were unable
    to retrieve their gold as the treasure sank in quicksand like soil due to
    heavy rains.


    I am Looking for any further information on the Time period in which this story occurs. Additionally Im interested in the miners identity and any information on the location.

    Keep researching and I believe you will find several places all using the same basic info.

    That's a better suggestion than "keep looking"!

My father was a voyageur; he died while on a voyage. I will also die while en route, and another Chicot will take my place. Such is our course of life."

    Good hunting and good luck. If you locate the gold, you have to think about how to retrieve it out of the quicksand.
