Henry Thomas was a miner in 1874 around French Creek. The story states that he buried his gold around 5 miles southeast of Gordon’s Stockade on the bank of French Creek. He died before he recovered the gold.

Edward Sanchz was the owner of an inn, tavern, and roadhouse on the old stage line. He was quite the miser and had a very large fortune. It is believed that he placed his money in fruit jars and then once a month he would leave the tavern. He would head northeast along the Dirty Woman Creek. He would be gone for about an hour before returning. It is believed that he buried the fruit jars filled to the brim with money he had collected over the month. Edward Sanchz was killed in 1902 and the location of the buried fruit jars was never found.
