im actually finding two different stories:

Mifflin County, Pennsylvania: Fort Granville about 4 miles WSW Lewistown, founded in 1755, the French and Indians destroyed the fort in 1756. A cache of currency, known as the Fracker Treasure, is reportedly buried in the vicinity of Lewistown. Further details of this treasure are unavailable.

and this...

Joe Fracker Lewistown Mifflin PAMid-Atlantic250000 10 Coins that says he was a bandit.

??? ??? ???

i know for a fact read about it being near jacks creek several times. This doesn't add up because Jacks Creek drains into the Juniata River at the Stone Arch Bridge about 10 miles away.


im still confused

That story and a bunch of others about Lewistown loot are listed in THE UNITED STATES TREASURE ATLAS by: THOMAS P. TERRY. It is a 10 volume set.Pa. is in volume 8. Check the library. I don't think there is a digital version.
