RED JACK GANG'S
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
Where is Red Jack Gang’s Stagecoach Loot?
Jack Averill better known as Red Jack Almer led many
stagecoach robberies throughout Arizona. The Red Jack Gang played havoc on
stagecoaches during the early 1880’s mostly along the San Pedro River.
Close by Riverside, Arizona on August 10, 1883 the
Red Jack Gang held up a stagecoach. This stagecoach happened to be a Wells Fargo
stage! The guard tried to persuade the gang into believing that there was no
gold aboard the stagecoach, when a female passenger on the coach jumped off the
stage and called the guard a liar.
Unknown to the guard at the time, the woman was
really Red Jack dressed up like a woman. In disguise, Red Jack watched as the
guard loaded the gold and placed it under a seat and this is when Red Jack gave
the signal for his men to move. Of course, men, Red Jack and the guard pulled
out their weapons and the guard was killed. The Red Jack Gang rode off with
$3,000 in gold and currency.
After the area had their fill of stagecoach
robberies, Sheriff Bob Paul gathered a posse and tracked down the Red Jack Gang,
killing them one by one when found. Red Jack was killed by the posse when he was
found hiding near Wilcox, Arizona on October 4, 1883.
It is believed that the Red Jack Gang buried their
entire ill-gotten gain close by their Wilcox hideout. This hideout is close to
Prescott, Arizona and the person lucky enough to find will find a treasure worth
$8,000 in gold coin.
