Hello Money Hunters. Yep, it has been awhile since anything has been added to this website. For that we apologize. Many of you are aware of the reasons for our absence.
Now I bring you something of great concern to us. Around the 10th of September my, Bob Brewer’s, video camcorder came up missing. It’s believed to have been stolen from my mini-van parked at a Gander Mountain store in Texarkana, Texas. The camera loss is of minor importance. It’s the two 16 GB HCSD cards that were in the camera that are valuable. It’s quite possible some of the data on these cards are documents regarding clues found and deciphered and even map work from several treasure sites that John and I have in the works.
We feel that someone having access to those documents and maps may decide to post them online and even claim them as their own work. While there is no real worry about anyone using the data to go dig up some of the treasure described therein, it’s possible some of the major lines and locations of clues will become internet chatter.
The reason for this disclosure is to get the jump on someone who might use our data to con someone into believing they know where the treasure is buried/ hidden. There are no “X marks the spot” to a treasure cache on any computer, SD card or even external hard disk drive. That highly classified information resides only in our heads. Unless someone could really read the treasure maps and decipher how all the clues fit things together all is well.
So let me disclose the treasure sites for which the map work might be posted.
- The treasure map so called “The Wolf Map” which has made the rounds on treasure forums for years. John and I solved that map years ago. This treasure depository contains/contained several caches. One of those is well covered in my book, Shadow of the Sentinel, Simon & Schuster 2002. This large cache, a stage safe containing as much as $200,000 (face value) in new 1869 gold coins, was recovered in 1995 by a rogue partner while I (Bob) was at home caring for my aged father suffering with Alzheimer’s disease. That gold was the Army payroll robbery loot from the paymaster traveling from Fort Gibson to Fort Arbuckle , (Oklahoma) in 1869. The heist occurred near the town of Mill Creek and was perpetrated by a “Band of Missourians.” At the time of this murderous robbery, the name “Jesse James” was little known outside of Missouri, but it was a Jesse’s gang deed. The loot was taken up Wild Horse Creek, to near its head then south to Mud (Stinking Creek in 1870s) Creek and buried not far from where the Chisholm Trail passes Monument Hill. That cache was about 2.5 miles east of Addington , OK.
The Wolf Map depository contains/contained several more caches of gold. Another major stash of gold was in the back of a tunnel under the new Chisholm Trail Monument (circa 1930s) constructed on a large hill north of the original Monument Hill of cattle drive days. The newer Monument Hill, where the monument is now, has a tunnel dug into its north face about 40 steps from the Monument. In the early 1900s a house stood on the little flat above the county road and in front of the tunnel. Access to that cache was gained by removing a slab of the concrete walkway on the south side of the Monument. That slab was replaced around 1999 and the tunnel resealed with new concrete. Reportedly, the contents of that tunnel cache was gold coins and jewelry in three containers. Two were one gallon syrup buckets full of small denomination gold coins. The third treasure vessel, a medium size tea kettle containing gold coins, Morgan silver dollars dated 1878-1890s and expensive women’s jewelry with one broach set with a large diamond.
This depository is very large and other caches are northwest and east of Duncan, OK and there are others. Amazingly the Wolf Map depository is only one of three in the region, all of which adjoin each other. When our work is finished in that region we will shock you with facts about how these depositories were designed. We will provide maps to each and the location of several cache sites.
- Danville, VA depository, often wrongly referred to as the Lost Confederate Treasury or 40 kegs of Mexican silver dollars. John and I worked this site under the eye of the History Channel’s cameras. We solved the puzzle found in the Green Hill cemetery in just two and a half days. The director of the History program tried to get us to reveal the location of this treasure. We did not and haven’t been able to return to finish that work due to family illnesses. Some on the treasure net forum have belittled John and me saying we had no idea of what we were doing. Well the time is near when the solution to that puzzle will be shown to the public. At that time those on the forum will be shown to be (nicely put) non thinkers!
The Danville layout was the easiest site we ever worked. Everything needed to solve this puzzle is in plain sight. Only thing is you must be able to recognize what the puzzle makers are telling you.
- The Find Gun Barrel near Creek map. This one also can be found on the internet. I worked on for this puzzle for several years but was always hampered by the land owners following me around. It wasn’t that I was trying to steal their treasure. Instead I was just protecting my knowledge to prevent them or anyone else to beating me to the loot.
I think its common knowledge by now that I found the first cache of treasure on that site after only being on the land only 20 minutes. I had never been there before when a young man took me there to check it out. I observed some carvings high up on a pecan tree and asked the kid if he ever found a treasure there. He told me no, so I said let’s go dig one up. It was only a small clue cache but was marked with an 1858 Remington Army cap and ball revolver. Next trip there I followed a line to near where another cache was indicated. At that time we were confronted by the ranch foreman and told we were trespassing and that the Sheriff had been called. The guy had lied to me saying he had permission to be on the property. I thought it was true, since an old man unlocked the gate for us to enter. Turned out he just had the land leased for cattle pasture. A week later the guy and his father snuck onto the property and detected around the area I had pointed out. They found another gun, a Colt Thunder revolver which pointed to the burial of ceramic spittoon containing 60 Morgan’s and 40 dollars in gold eagles and half eagles.
Later the landowners invited me to work with them and a contract was drawn up. After a few attempts to make headway with them dogging my every move, I gave it up. Later they had a group of novices comb the property for clues. They found little or nothing and made no friends with the landowners.
After the land changed hands I got access through the new owners and finished up on that property. It had many signs and clues but the treasure was not on the property but some distance away. The location of three large caches has been proven by other maps dug up in the region. Only one of those caches has been recovered. The other two are still there due to family health problems.
The original treasure map to this site is authentic and complete enough to find other buried maps and clues. We intend to reveal the solution to this ingenious treasure depository in the coming months, maybe a year or so.
So friends this is some of the information you might see appearing online coming from the SD cards in the camera. I hope there was nothing important on the cards but I am afraid some of my writing will be found. I am working on a true life movie script about my Mother’s family in Oklahoma during the depression era. Also, there likely are some family photos on the cards and maybe some photos of treasure clues. We’ll have to wait and see what turns up.
If anyone should hear about someone having a Cannon Pro Video camera with treasure information inside I would be ecstatic to hear about it.
