YEAH!
ME!
If you're talking about a large cavern that has two (2) entrances to it
One at ground level, the other from way up on the top!
(The top of the cavern/canyon)
If you had mentioned this, when we were last in The Bradshaw Mnts
AND!
I would have related the story to you! :icon_sunny:
But!
Here is a "brief" description about it
It was Used, for sure by The Apaches and Maybe by The Spanish
There appears to be "chests", boxes, weapons, stacks of bars & etc inside
Put there by ? Spanish ? Apache ?

This was seen by a friend of John Ballinger, who found The Upper entrance
But!
Never got into the cavern
I know that's not much information
But!
I don't want to reveal too much here on "The Net" !
Does this sound like want you interested in?

Last night I was looking at some of the photos I took when we in the canyon
Taken, Right, there at the No/So Branch Junction
I don't know how I missed this :tongue3:
But!
There is a series of large & long, deep vertical lines, "V" shaped, :icon_scratch:
On the right and left of an area that looks like,
It has been covered over, right at the base of a small cliff
Does this, Mean, anything to YOU!
On top of this, indented/covered area, a cave entrance?, is a protuding animal's face
It's looking right down at you! :o
It's pretty good size, too!
'bout 1 1/2 foot high, and several feet long

No none of that rings a bell with me, that was the area the treasure was supposedto be the and it was where Mike said he found the dug up area in a small cave.

It has been brought to my attention that the cave/hole found in Negro ed canyon treasure site does not mean that anything was actually found..
Also Negro ed could have moved some gold closer to his cabin down in the main canyon., just a thought.

because one hole was dug does not mean that all the gold was recovered. i think my aunt used the term mule trains.

Any of you gentlemen still around? Blackfoot? Cptbild? Very intrigued by Negro Ed. Just explored both North and South branches of the canyon fairly extensively. Searched the caves indicated in prior photos (South Branch, the massive waterfall side) and found nothing. Searched in the same areas, and up and down some of the lower ledges for the length of the canyon. North Branch was slightly harder to access being more narrow. Found a couple of circular caves on opposing sides of the canyon, nothing in there. Did see a big round cave on a north rim above an area where cattle seem to graze. Didn't get to it. Saw modern repelling anchors at the mouth of that canyon, odd given we didn't see an entire trace of human activity otherwise aside from a horseshoe found down in the south branch. Nobody would go through the trouble to get to the point to repel for recreation I'd assume. Didn't see any drawings. I'm well-equipped to make multi-day trips to remote areas that are fairly close to this location; any clues or leads would be greatly appreciated and findings will be distributed appropriately.

Well, good for you for getting out and exploring the canyon. My family came to the Tularosa Basin from Buffalo Gap, Texas, in 1884, about the same time Oliver Lee's family got here from the same place. They knew each other, and my great-great Uncle Jim was on the coronor's jury that investigated the death of Frenchy Rochas in late 1894 at the mouth of the canyon. Frenchy is buried in La Luz. To me, there's certifiable treasure in the history of this landscape.
