Hi jeff of pa,

Thanks for sharing that article! I've been looking into the history of Capt. Glanton and his notorious ferry. Was wondering:

1) If you know where the ferry was? I've narrowed it down to a few places, including the center of modern day Yuma, and also further up the Colorado River.

2) I've seen mention that the CA government issued a treasure search party after Glanton died but never found the treasure. Do you know anything about the government search back in the 1850/60s?

Thanks!
