Possible treasure from Chicago fire buried at Cathead Point and guarded by a spirit: My name is Dan Green,I am 57 years old, and I grew up in Traverse City, Mi. For years, our family had an American Indian friend named Angus Sears who was from Ontario, Canada. Angus would at times come down and live in the Traverse City area, cutting pulp wood and would visit us and possibly relatives or friends who lived in the Indian community of Peshawbestown, as well as the town of Omena. Quite often, Angus would use his metal detector at Cathead Point, looking for the treasure, possibly gold bars, from the Chicago fire, that had been buried in that area. I do recall that he found out about it thru some of the locals. I always knew Angus to be a hard working honest Christian man, who was very kind and not known to ever be a story teller. Angus looked for this treasure for years. One day, he came to our home, white as a sheet, and totally freaked out scared. When asked what was wrong, he said that he had found the treasure, and that a spirit or ghost had appeared and scared him off. He never went back to Cathead Point. this may sound like a tall tale or a legend but from what my family knows about Angus and his honesty, and the fact that there was treasure taken during looting from the great Chicago fire, there is more truth to this than what people may think. depending upon drifting dunes,water levels and geographical change, the treasure could be high and dry or under water and should be left there because most of the land and shore is now privately owned. This is also a beautiful natural area. The only people who could possibly look for it could be private land owners on the point. I have hiked the dunes and shoreline from Frankfort to Glen Haven ever since I was a little boy on my dad's shoulders and remember the fresh smell of Lake Michigan, the dune grasses and the sand blowing, and collecting petoskey stones and old aluminum floats from the fishing nets that had washed ashore. These memories are where the real treasure lies. I would like to hear any comments you may have.
