Mysterious Missing Gold of the French Military

Mysterious Missing Gold of the French Military

The French Military buried treasure somewhere in Ohio during the French and Indian war. The treasure remains missing to this day. During the French and Indian war, in order to hide a French Payroll from attacking British forces, buried the payroll and marked the area with clues to find the missing treasure. Decades later a young man shows up with a list of clues to find the missing treasure.

    I live close to Minerva and my uncle studied about this treasure when he was younger. He was intrigued and read everything about it he could. Rumor has it that (idk the exact year or date of this) there used to be this old hermit. nobody really knew him or saw him much. but supposedly he would come to town every 6 months and get essentials and would always pay with gold coins (the same exact kind as the missing payroll). and nobody knew where this hermit lived. don’t know if it’s true but still makes you wonder ๐Ÿค” but if it is where did he get it?

    I just honestly agree like alot of other people have probably said that someone found the treasure many many years ago and never spoke of it bc they didn’t want anyone to know they found it. Finders keepers losers weepers.

    There was a large cache of arms found near where I live itโ€™s attributed to the French and Indian wars the cache of arms was a fact the stories of buried treasure were probably thought up afterwards
