Bloodsworth Island in the Chesapeake has produced a large amount of French and Dutch coins from the mid 1700’s. The coins have been found along the beaches of the northwest corner of the island.
Holland Island is located approximately 5 miles south of Bloodsworth Island in northern Chesapeake. Stories are told of Dutch gold and silver coins from the 1700’s being found on the western end of the Island. There may have been an early Dutch settlement on the island, or perhaps a Dutch ship wrecked close to the island.
The Poor House Treasure supposedly consists of gold coins worth $30,000. They were buried in the ghost town of of Plaindealing, which was located approximately 2 miles east of Hurtock.
The Harold Smith farm may hold a treasure worth $100,000 in gold coins. Apparently, a murderous, slave trader by the name of Patty Cannon, buried several caches on the farm. Before committing suicide, Patty confessed in her will that she had buried the treasures.
Patty Cannon also owned a tavern on the Nanticoke River near Riverton. Rumors are that Patty buried treasures near the tavern also.
