COLE'S GOLD (Eldred, McKean County)

Cyrus Cole lived in a shack by the swamps near Eldred, trapping small game and foraging for his supper. Yet he was strangely never short of cash. The Secret Service was investigating a surge of counterfeit gold and silver coins in the area, and the trail led to Cole as its' mastermind. Armed with a search warrant, they went sloshing through his swamp looking for any signs of his hand being involved in the crime but came up empty. Legend has it that Cole outfoxed them by burying his fake loot and the very real profits he made in the high ground around Eldred. None of it has ever been recovered.
