Since this blog isn’t really about the KGC I will keep this short, but I wanted to bring your attention to a few things.
For those of you that believe in the alleged KGC template for finding treasure, and I know you are out there, you should really research the Spider Rock treasure that was mentioned earlier on this blog. There are some very good photos in Steve Wilson’s book that show what could be considered a template for the alleged KGC template. One of the carvings is almost a duplicate of the alleged KGC template. Now at this point I’m sure there are those that will say this proves the Spider Rock Treasure was KGC but I’m sorry, it doesn’t. There is overwhelming evidence that the Spider Rock Treasure was Spanish.
In my opinion, what you should be considering is the fact that J. Frank Dalton and his cohort, Orvus Lee Houk, spent a lot of time in Texas. The Spider Rock Treasure was a pretty big deal back then and it was before the time that J. Frank Dalton came out as Jesse James. It would be my theory that Orvus Houk, A.K.A Jesse Lee James III, was aware of the carvings on the Spider Rocks and manipulated the designs to use as his own to bolster his claims. Granted, I have no proof of this but since it has been proven the Spider Rock Treasure was in the ground well before the KGC existed then it would be a fair assumption that the alleged KGC template could have been manufactured using a composite of the different carvings of the Spider Rocks as a “template” itself. All you need to do is look at the different Spider Rocks and the variations of the carvings and you can see the real similarities.
