Gold - valued at $50,000 in 1862 (just consider what that would be worth on today's market!) - was buried near Fairport, Ohio, and has never been recovered.

In that year, three robbers held up a bank in Canada and escaped across Lake Erie with their loot. Arriving on the American side of the lake, the three fought among them-selves over division of the loot. Two were killed. The third robber died six months later in a Chicago hospital from a pulmonary disease.

A few minutes before he died, the man confessed his part in the crime. He told his nurse and doctor the story of the hidden gold.

Details did not leak out until a year later, after a Chicago group had searched in vain for the gold and left Fairport to return to Chicago by steamboat.
