After the duel with James Beverly Risque in Fincastle, Va., Thomas Beale, SENIOR skedaddled on down to New Orleans, LA. He had a tavern in the French Quarter, and became CAPTAIN of Beales Rifles, during the Battle of New Orleans. OTHER notables in that battle were Paschal Buford, CAPTAIN of US ARMY Artillery; Maj. James Beverly Risque, on staff of Gen. Andrew Jackson; the Lafitte Brothers (Pirates/Privateers/Spies); who else "connected" to the Beale "story"...? Did THEY conspired to steal GOLD & bury it in LA, then Virginia...? Hmmm... :dontknow: Reckon "Big Scoop" can share the Lafittes "workings"...

Nah... US Mint in NO was 1838; it became the CSA MINT during the Confederate War... BUT! TV show years ago had a guy from NSA saying the Beale Treasure was under water in NO (THE MINT)... dunno.

Well, for those who subscribed ,the evolution of power followed gold physical stocks. ( Note who subscribed to Vattel's law and how they operated, for how long.)
" Who" had what is traceable at many points in a nations role during war time. Eliminating those who did not have stock specie/ tangible gold ,must also note those who suddenly had what they lacked previously. Sources often clouded.

Andrew Jackson's Florida Campaign, with Major James Beverly Risqué as his Aide de Camp, has also been cited as a "connexion" because it brought about the Adams-Onis Treaty, whose signing and ratification dates match those of the alleged Beale treasure deposits.
Coincidence, purposeful deception, or chosen to created a plausible possible connection for the reader?

I think it was one of many things "borrowed" from the Risqué extended family bloodline that are alluded in the Beale Papers.

My bad. George has been turning up repeatedly since posting the vid. elsewhere. ( Some one started a thread with 1. )
Not sure why ,but it is related to adding a link. And the carbon based problem between the chair and the keys.

The Galveston Island theory host several extremely strong & curious circumstances when we consider a possible connection to the Beale narration. However, like everything else in this mystery it still lacks that directly connecting fact. And that's really where it has to be left, on the shelf unless an unlikely event occurs to turn it into something else.

I still like the Galveston Island theory bigscoop. Don't put "truth" on a shelf, your research is a "truth" that you did not have before. It may be just a part of something.

There's quite a bit more that I've not put out here simply because there still isn't that vital direct connection. But yes, that Galveston Island theory is quite strong "if" in fact the narration is anything other then a simple dime novel. I can put a couple of locals in that region during the period in question, but I can't actually put them on that island or make any direction connection with the interested parties on that island. And I may also have a "little bit more" information on the TJB of Richmond and his family ties but still trying to sort that mess out? So, stays on the shelf for now......
