Where is the lost James Gang loot in Kentucky?



Jesse James, Frank James, Cole Younger, and four other men made up the Gang known as the James Gang. They robbed banks and trains throughout Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Kentucky, and probably more.

On March 20, 1868, The James Gang held up a bank in Russellville, Kentucky. The entire amount they got away with was $17,000 with $5,000 of the loot being bank notes and the rest in gold coins. The banker, Nimrod Long was beaten and shot; however, he did not let the James Gang get ahead too quickly before he sounded the alarm.

Shortly after the James Gang rode out of town, a 50-man posse was on their tail. The tracked the gang to Allen county where the James Gang had gone in different directions to aid in their escape. Since the posse was hot on their trail, they did not have a chance to divide the stolen bank money.

The posse noted that some of the tracks led toward Red River County; however, the tracks vanished before the posse could catch up with the bandits. Unbeknown to the posse at the time, those tracks belonged to Frank and Jesse James that were making their way back to Adairville only 15 miles from where they had robbed the Russellville Bank.

George T. Hite, the James brother’s cousin, had a house in Adairville. George was a grocer and a close friend and confident to Jesse. George would often allow the James Gang to hide away in his home in order to escape the law. Many believe somewhere on the Hite property is much of the loot stolen by the James Gang as this was the only hideout in all of Kentucky for these outlaws.
