Where is the French Voyageurs Gold Treasure?
Sometime during the late 1690’s when the French had
enemies on all sides, a small French Canadian voyageur group left New Orleans by
raft on a trip back up the Mississippi and other rivers and creeks to Montreal.
Aboard the raft were a few French runners, two Jesuit priests, and some Indian
scouts. Along with their provisions, they carried small kegs of gold coins
covered with small layer o gunpowder.
The gold was suppose to be delivered to His Most
Gracious Majesty’s Royal Governor, however, the fear of being scalped and the
gold stolen became too much for them and they decided to bury the kegs. It is
believed, by the map that was made, the kegs filled with gold coins was buried
somewhere close to what is known now as Coudersport. The gold is buried near a
huge rock, which the Jesuits marked with a cross. They chiseled the cross into
the side of the rock so it would easily be found on their return.
Many people throughout history have talked of this
huge rock with the religious marking, but no one has searched for the gold coins
