stan and I were re-wiring an old theatre in downtown baca springs texas and needed to get behind some wall panels of the theatre backstage.after getting permission to remove the panels we found several old $100 bills pated to the walls on the interior of the speaker housing wall-$3,000 dollars to be exact. the writting next to the money stated"whomever finds this luxury of gold notes must use it for christian endevours only!!signed, Brigette fontenot the II-stage performer from 1934...strange is the fact that the depression was on and why paste the bills on a stage interior wall? i would have lived on it for the next 5 years in her time!!! i come to find out tht brigette fontenot died in a fatal train accident in 1935. a circus -performer train and 25 people in all died . including a bear, a girrafee and two monkies from africa. the current owner simply said to take half of the notes and give him the other half..which we did and finished our wiring of the theatre for next weeks kid performance of Tom sawyer. but it goes to show that treasure's are everywhere and that if you seek out new areas ..you will find God knows what!!! i suggest you research maps and old towns and old acreage farms and even front lawns of old homes-of course get permission first!!be safe-darrel deville-ft.worth,texas. 76021
