It's hard to believe three years have gone by since I last posted a story. After the passing of three of my treasure hunting partners I decided to step back from the world of treasure hunting and pursue a few other areas of interest.
The time away has allowed me to reexamine the way I hunt and start with a fresh perspective on projects I had shelved. I've found that the break has allowed me to see details I had overlooked in the past.
I have spent a considerable amount of time researching to find out who J Frank Dalton really was and I'm 95% sure I have solved the mystery. Only DNA testing can prove 100% if I'm correct, but through countless hours of genealogical research and searching census records I've been able to get a fairly good idea of his life.
I plan on posting new stories and information as time permits. As the weather cools you might even find me out in the field searching for those hidden caches of gold and silver. Don't look for me to be on tv much as I've decided that's not my gig.
Good luck and good hunting
