  1. Texas Spider Rocks - Newspaper Files

    I always liked this story, going to post a few things as I work on them. From a research standpoint, it'll be impossible to do a better job than Steve Wilson and Bill Townsley have done on the topic. Lots of solid research out there but I find what you can dredge up online pretty interesting...
  2. KGX in Utah?

    I could swear at one point in "Jesse James Was One of His Names" there is a reference to a KGC Hoard hidden in Utah, Salt Lake CIty perhaps, that's supposed to be buried near the giant "U" on the side of the mountain. Can't find this reference in the book any more and it's riving me crazy...
  3. Lost Dutchman Books - Which ones rare / valuable?

    Recently bought a rather large library of books, including many on the Lost Dutchman. Was curious which books are considered desirable, rare, sought after by collectors. I'm talking about more than simply well-known books, but things like self-published, brochures, obscure stuff. What are the...
  4. OKC Treasure Show 1974 - Prominent figures

    I was born in 1974, and while that year specifically isn’t noteworthy where treasure hunting is concerned, the era it occurs in certainly is. I’ve often thought that treasure hunting has changed a lot since what seems like a high point in the late 1960s and the early 1970s. I’ve recorded...

  7. Jesse James III KGC Maps

    Was just curious if anyone knows how many KGC maps out there are specifically attributed to Jesse James II, a many maps appear to have his signature on them. I was just trying to scrape together some examples and background on what's been presented out there (particularly on Tnet and other...

  9. Western Treasures 1.2: A different kind of "treasure legend"

    One of the interesting consequences of research is a tendency to feel nostalgic...even more unusual is to be nostalgic for a time period you were never part of. Some of the days research (thanks to the holiday) led me to the Winter 1963 issue of Western Treasures (Volume 1, Number 2)...

    Does anyone have a printed/hardcopy of Jerry Nokes’ book “New Map Dowsing Technology/Map Dowsing Is Obsolete” with its companion “Cranial Pendulum Secrets”? It seems that when Jerry’s website hosting service changed platforms, it lost the material from his course. I have a friend who would...
