I think if you added a pirate section it would enhance the website. There are many many pirate legends and myths as well as lots of lost treasures. Everyone loves pirates and it really needs it's own section.

I think Treasuenet already has a category for each state. Scrool down and see it.

It is a fact that if you don't write down on the exam what the teachers have told you is history then you won't pass their exams. Think about that for a minute before you order this book and open your eyes to the truth. It is not a legend and there are a lot of things that are not deciphered yet. There is plenty on the internet to look at if you don't want to buy the book, but the history and evidence is in the book if you are looking for proof. The Ones That Got Away.jpg

In south dallas, there is a damn lock on the trinity river 2 miles north of where the I20 west overpass and the trinity river intersect ...directly behind the Lincoln memorial cemetery on the triniy river

My grandparents owned Elam sand and gravel next door. Every year an old man came by in the dry season and asked to go metal detecting for treasure from a civil war ship wreck.

Does this general area match any known wreck? I will ask my mom, 83 years old. She should know the details!

How about that lost military payroll at Prarie Du Chein, Zack Taylor was post commander. It is always a topic in this area. Claimed never been found, But old Zack ended up with the funds to run for president.

This is funny, The Pete was my first user ID and this many years later I am doing research and books on treasure legends.

Hmm interesting. I am a scuba diver. What lake is it? I don't think i would be able to move it without a permit, since it is on state land. But i could probably verify whether it is there or not. Is this a midwest lake?

Just curious which lake you're speaking of. I also know the approximate location of a cache that's most likey under a lake.

Howdy, new here; has anyone suggested the Lost Blue Bucket Mine from the Meeks wagon Train in Oregon in 1845 or thereabouts? I am doing some research on it now, as I grew up hearing that story, and used to hunt deer not too far from where the route of the wagon train passed.

Available verifiable evidence points to one location. Confluence of Canyon Creek with John Day River. Both were unnamed in every journal I have read from members of that expedition. Based on those journals and known locations they are confirmed to have passed through, it is the only possible location.

Time for more coffee.
