Do you have any good info on Spanish activity in the plains? It'd be nice to know if there is any validity to the Spanish one.
I found these little blubs on a couple of different websites. We are heading to KC the 1st weekend in May for a Family reunion, I am taking the detector.. Getting the plat map from the county historical society. Also may head to Seneca KS to check out another lead about 50,000 in nugget buried near the found on the Nemaha River. more then likely I am like the hundred millionth person to look at both of these but I figure it'd get me away from the hotel for a day while the kids are swimming.
Spanish Treasure in Cass County

On October 24, 1879 an article in the Cass County Times-Courier described the location of a hidden Spanish treasure near Harrisonville, Missouri.? The text read:
"Before being massacred by attacking Indians in 1772, several hundred Spaniards buried 15 loads of gold averaging 130 pounds each and 1,000 bars of silver weighing an average of 20 pounds to the bar... in the area four or five miles west and one or one and one-half miles north of Harrisonville. The silver was buried within one-fourth of a mile of where the present day Rodman School is standing; the gold is three fourths of a mile farther northwest.?
More than fifty years later, a construction crew was building a bridge in 1930.? The location was several miles southeast of the old Rodman School.? During the excavation, the crew found evidence of a battle between the Spanish and the Indians, locating old weapons, skeletons, and part of old armor.
Harrisonville has dramatically grown in the last several years, so locating the exact location of the old Rodman School will, no doubt, require some sleuthing skills.
