The information here is a good start for your treasure hunting search. But you may want to research the stories further. Using the Internet, and visiting the local historical societies of the areas the stories revolve around is a great way to research. I use these methods all the time.
Having a metal detector is also a good idea. If you do not own a metal detector, but your thinking of purchasing one, don’t spend a lot of money. The detectors that cost between $350 to $450 is all you need. The higher end models with all of the bells and whistles are for the more advanced treasure hunter. Believe me, you can find hidden treasure with a less expensive model. I’ve been treasure hunting for thirty-five years and the detector I use now, I purchased new a few years ago for $425.
