Not sure how well this link will work, but this court document, on page 413, tells of found cash at some place and of a guy that burried his money in a cave, near or in a cesspool, the garden and among iron. He was well to do, owned a tavern and never trusted banks.

I wonder how much of his burried loot was actually found.

Maybe if someone wants to trace the fellows name back to 1889, the name of the tavern, the owner...maybe they can find some of his unfound loot...if there is any left.


Good luck,
