Here is just a few of the tales I was told about growing up. Southeast of town about 3 miles is supposedly buried a Civil War Payroll it?s out in the middle of a field under a big flat rock I was shown the location once when I was younger but never checked it out. Not far from this site my step-dad while coon hunting stumbled onto several old graves or mounds of rocks he said there was about 8 or 10. About 5 miles east of town there is supposedly a Golden Statue the size of a calf hidden inside an old cave. Back in the 70?s someone in business like suits came looking for something in the same area but as far as I know they didn?t find anything. South of Town along the county line is suppose to be buried I was told 8 donkey loads of Gold the Spanish had buried. I searched for the one in Springfield Mo. Back in the 80?s found allot of digging sites but with the growth of Springfield the signs are probably all gone. To the North of town a man my family knew was suppose to have buried fruit jars of old coins in the corner of an old barn the barn no longer stands I was there once in the early 70?s with a cheap metal detector all I found was the spade end of a shovel and an old Iron. Another story was of two twin brothers who had never been married there family was one of the early settlers in the 1830?s and friends of ours. When they died they were getting back then what they called old age pension. They had over $2,000.00 on each one of them the State came in an put a paddle lock on there house door with a no trespassing sign. Don?t know if State found anything or not.
