Interesting read in the link below about John Hunt Morgan escaping capture and taking up the alias John Hunt Cole and living out his days in Oklahoma.
Tim Kent's Civil War tales: Thunderbolt: The Mystery of John Hunt Morgan

Was John Hunt Morgan a member of the KGC? If so this means a KGC member at the end of the war stole a lot of gold, faked his death, changed his name, and moved to Oklahoma.
Could John Hunt Morgan been involved in hiding the confederate gold along with Jesse James?

Not to mention, John Hunt Morgan's right hand man during the war was the Basil Wilson Duke. And we all know, after the war Duke was given the task by Jefferson Davis to guard the Confederate gold. COINcidence? :coins:
