Kellyco Buried Treasures of Texas
A Collection of 31 Stories of Lost Fortunes from the People of Texas. Written by W.C. Jameson
As ransom for the great ruler Atahualpa, the Spanish explorer Pizarro stole a $60 million Incan hoard-forty mule-loads of gold, silver, jewelry, emeralds, gem-encrusted gold icons, and one of the first Bibles to arrive in the Western hemisphere. It is allegedly buried near the Salt Fork of the Brazos River in Stonewall County.
In 1877, the outlaw Sam Bass stole three thousand freshly minted gold pieces in a train robbery and buried them in Denton County. A portion of the gold coins was recovered by a farmer near Cove Hollow at the turn of the century, but the balance have never appeared in circulation.
The thirty-one stories in this book are gathered from the most geographically and culturally diverse state in the Union. Telling of the lost fortunes of native Americans, Spanish explorers, and Mexican, German, and Scotch-Irish settlers, these tales are products of the people of Texas: their experiences, adventures, and explorations; their lust for wealth, and their lust for the good story. The stories themselves are treasures.
