Beneath a superhighway bridge on Grand Island, New York, may be the site of a buried treasure of substantial proportions. It takes real digging to unearth the story, which is revealed in bits and parts from varied sources. But when the parts are assembled, not only one but possibly two treasure stories dating back to early Colonial days emerge.

To start with the beginning, Grand Island, in the Niagara River, is part of Erie County, New York. A small island called Buckhorn Island, which is separated from the much, forms its northern tip larger Grand Island by Burnt Ship Creek. Burnt Ship Creek, known in the old days as Burnt Ship Bay, connects the Niagaras east and west branches.
