A copper strongbox containing $30,000 in gold coins was being transported by the Pennsylvania RR paymaster via canoe through
the flood-ravaged Deleware Water Gap around 1915 when the paymaster became ill. He rowed ashore and buried the chest
near a cliff, “somewhere on the left bank of the river downstream of the bridge, near the far end of the gap”. This is what he
passed on to those at the railroad camp before he died.Today Hwy. I-80 goes through the Deleware Water Gap in the Pocono
Mountains and the search area is along the base of a 500-foot slope at the lower end of the gap.
