BUSTER'S BURIED GOLD
THE LONGEST LIST OF THE LONGEST
STUFF AT THE LONGEST DOMAIN NAME AT LONG LAST
Where is Busterís buried gold?
Back in the 1850ís, around Mokelumne Hill, California a
black prospector was very lucky when it came to finding gold. He later moved to
the San Antone Camp, which was located on San Antone Creek. San Antone Creek was
a branch of the Calaveras River. With him, he brought the 136 pounds of gold
that he had found at Mokelumne Hill. He brought his gold into the Cuneoís
general store where he had it weighed and then went on his way to around ľ of a
mile up San Antone Creek where he settled. He built a cabin and began working
his claim in a ravine, which became known as Busterís Gulch. The only money he
ever used was to purchase supplies the rest he buried in a Dutch oven. A Dutch
oven is a large iron pot similar to a skillet that was used to bake items over a
fire or in an oven. Buster passed away in 1872, many people searched his home
and the land surrounding his cabin in search of the buried Dutch oven. No one
ever found either of them.
However, there are two very different tales
concerning Busterís death. One is that Charlie Vickers cared for Buster during
his last days and he may have found Busterís gold, by following Busterís dog to
its whereabouts. A few years after Busterís death, Vickers who spent most of his
time gambling and losing, began to show signs of wealth.
The other tale of Busterís demise is one of evil
intentions. A man by the name of Smokey Hill had talked of his plan of killing
Buster and taking all of his gold. The townspeople really loved Buster and his
unusual ways and when they heard about this plan, rushed out to save Buster, but
they arrived too late to save Buster from this evil man. Smokey Hill was
captured and lynched for his hideous crime. Once again, the tale explains how
the entire area was searched and no one found a Dutch oven full of gold.
To this day, Busterís buried gold is still hidden
away in the safe place where Buster placed it.
