A CREEK INDIAN FORTUNE HIDDEN
Near present day Kellyville a Creek Indian man received his land allotment. He set about farming and raising a family. Over time and through good business and luck and perseverance he accumulated approximately $60,000 in gold coins. He kept the fortune buried a short distance from his house. On occasion he would dig it up to add a portion and rebury it at a different spot on his property. Often he was accompanied by his young daughter.
One night he was abducted by thieves who sought to rob him, for they had heard he was very wealthy. They tortured him until they grew weary from the task, but he would not reveal the hiding place of his wealth. Frustrated, they killed him and fled away.
In the mid 1950s a middle aged woman, (I was told it was his granddaughter), returned to the area to seek the fortune. She searched, (as I was also told), for a standing rock as tall as a man, and for other rocks of certain shapes along the base of a small hill at an area on the property where her grandfather had often cut trees for firewood. Every version of this story that I have seen in print does not contain the information about the rocks. Every version does state that she searched for many days and left the area empty handed.
If you live in the Kellyville area and you can discover the name of the Creek Indian man, then you can go to the county courthouse and search in the land records and find the location of the property and the name and contact information for the current landowner. Like many other treasure stories this one has great potential.
