The John Winters Treasure - a large treasure of gold coins, and silver plate was buried by John Winters, on his farm, located approximately two miles north of Erin on route 13.

The John Murrell Treasure - John Murrell was an outlaw. It has been reported that he buried approximately one million dollars in gold near his home. The stone house was approximately three miles south of Dancyville.

The Cefe Wenton Treasure - Cefe Wenton was a miser and a farmer. Supposedly, in the 1860ís, he buried a large treasure in gold coins on his farm. Wenton and his wife were tortured during a robbery attempt, and both died without revealing where the treasure was located. In 1923 a small keg of coins was found on his farm. However, it was believed to be just a small portion of the treasure. The farm was located near Hillsboro, on route 41.

Joseph Thompson Hare was an outlaw who terrorized and robbed travelers on the Natchez Trace. Supposedly, he buried much of his stolen loot on the banks of Wolfe Creek, not far from Rossville on route 57.

Union troops buried a large amount of Civil War valuables and money after they attacked Atlanta. Apparently, they hid the treasure in a cave on Monteagle Mountain near Monteagle.

Cherokee Indian raiders supposedly buried half a million dollars in gold bullion in a Indian Mound near Log Mountain, approximately six miles northeast of Luttrell.

Thanks, Karl!  That is an interesting list of treasures in Tennessee.   Maybe I should send the list to my brother who lives there!

Tennessee is full of treasure. This is a new one on me. When I lived in Memphis back in the 1970s and 1980s, I loved the old school grounds. Lots of silver probably still there. The shade trees were so dense it was almost flashlight territory at high noon.

It's all about that moment when metal that hasn't seen the light of day for generations frees itself from the soil and presents itself to me.

My family has lived in the area for over 100 years and I have lived in Hillsboro for almost 30 years now. Tonite was the 1st time I heard about this.  Supposedly, this treasure is just a few miles from me.
