Hardluck, do you have any stories of treasures buried around the Great Lakes?  I live in Windsor, Ontario on the Detroit River.  I know that there was a lot of fighting in the area during the War of 1812.  I've seen many buttons and badges dug up from the war.  I would imagine that there must be caches and hoards buried in the area.  Also, could there be buried treasure from the Knights of the Golden Circle as Canada was a colony of Britian during the U.S. Civil War and was sympathetic towards the Confederates.

Hello Sarge5020

This is a little off topic. But here is Canadian treasure story but not from the great lakes area.

Here is an alleged treasure from the seven years war between the French And English in 1758.The source of this story was from a newspaper article  from 1919.

There is a legend of an immense  amount of hidden wealth that lies near the historic city of Quebec. This story of treasure buried there during the struggle between French General Montcalm and the British general Wolf in the early days of the seven Years War.

 It is a matter of historic fact the war, and there is alleged documents bearing on the alleged treasures existence. Towards the autumn of 1758 in the citadel of Quebec. the impregnable stronghold of Louis Fifteenth and the French in Canada. a vast amount of Louis d'ors. gold doubloons from the Spanish Main, family jewels from the grand Monsignors exiled in Canada. And other valuables and heirlooms brought from chateaus in France from the nobles had been gathered for safe keeping from the enemy.

 When an attack on the fort was considered to be certain, General Governor Montcalm gave orders for the treasure to be sewn up in pigskin bags and placed in brass hinged boxes. And  taken in boats up the River Saint Charles. near Quebec. until it could be recovered in more peaceful times. This was accordingly done.

Quebec was captured. most of the few high officers concerned in the affair were killed, and the survivors dispersed, and the Indians who had manned the boats' crew retired into the interior.

In the spring of 1909 a French Canadian living in an old estate. belonging to his forefathers near Quebec. took it into his head to rebuild the great old fashioned fire place in the main living room. Accordingly he set to work one morning and while taking away one of the great slabs at the back of the fireplace he came across a small oblong,silver bound book or lamented with a fantastic design, and a tarnished silver key still in its lock.

The French Canadian who took his priest as guide in all things. came the thought to leave it alone till the priest was sent for, and accordingly the treasure trove was left lying in its cavity. On the arrival of the cure the box was opened. Inside it lay a small parchment. yellow with age, and very brittle with the heat of more than hundred years' of fires. The writing on it was in clearly 18th century hand. and in French.

Reading to the effect that. "At the little bay on the River St. Charles, ten feet up the east bank, and five feet deep in the earth, you shall find buried in plaster, burnt wood. plate and ingot of silver, and the skull of a sheep. Beneath is the secret of a great treasure. The cure. worthy man, advised his parishioner to keep the document a secret until they had proved the truth of it.

The two of them went secretly to work, and after some trouble in getting the correct measurements and agreeing on the likely spot. they dug a hole, and in due time they found the plaster mound containing the burnt wood. plate and ingot of silver, and skull of a sheep. At the bottom of it all was a small. rusty iron box. which they broke open. It contained a rough chart. written in 18th century French.

It read "Across River Saint Charles to the wood near the small bay and peninsula. In Twenty feet N.N.W. by N. towards the clump of firs. Fifty feet as the sun sets. Five feet deep and set in plaster the great treasure from the citadel. God save us all." The pair gathered up the silver .plate and ingot, the skull and the box. filled in the cavity, and returned to the chateau.

Finally. one morning they crossed the River of Saint Charles. and prospected for the likely spot. Then at night--for the ground is now the property of the Catholic Church, they began to dig. But that night, and many other nights the two treasure seekers dug in vain. For though the peninsula remains,together with the small bay.

The wood has now disappeared, and the "clump of firs." is not there now. While. again, there is no exact clue as to the date of that evening sun, the setting of which saw Montcalm's men bury the treasure. and the sun sets in a different bearing every night.

Sp perhaps the treasure still lies there still? somewhere on that little peninsula of the Saint Charles. within a limited area lies buried in gold, ingots and sufficient wealth to make men of today millionaires.

Is there some truth to this story or is it another colorful legend?

Another legend to be researched

Hello Sarge5020

Your welcome.

Here is another treasure story for the astute treasure researcher. If your interested look in legendary treasures there is a treasure  dating back to WW2 relating to an imminence treasure that was stolen in Canada.
