Evidence of KGC Signs and Symbols
A number of contemporary treasure hunters and researchers believe there's a strong possibility that Jesse James (and Frank James and members of the James Gang) made numerous trips into southeastern Oklahoma. Why did they do this? Probably to cache robbery booty or Knights of the Golden Circle (KGC) treasure.
Many types of potential treasure signs and symbols have been found within the "triangle's" boundaries. These include tree blazes, rock carvings and etchings with the initials "JJ," KGC hearts, directional turkey or bird tracks, as well as buried treasure markers such as old weapons (rifles and pistols).
But the single most important proof that Oklahoma's "treasure triangle" is a likely area containing KGC treasure repositories has been the recovery of a number of small-to-medium sized caches and troves within the "triangle" itself. One of these caches was composed of a large stash of Morgan silver dollars and another was filled with U.S. gold type coins that probably had a value well into the hundreds of thousands of dollars.
An Ideal Region
I believe that many smaller KGC or Jesse James robbery caches have been recovered in Oklahoma's "treasure triangle" as well. Why? Well, it's common knowledge that many larger KGC troves are often indicated (and could be found) by interpreting the presence of smaller, "payroll" type caches that lead to, or surround, a larger KGC repository.
(Gold "double eagles" like these Liberty Heads have been recovered from at least one KGC cache in Southeastern Oklahoma.)
This area of Oklahoma is still sparsely populated and in Jesse James' lifetime the "triangle" probably presented an ideal area to carry on the KGC's work of hiding treasure for future use in re-establishing the Confederacy. In fact, in Jesse's day Oklahoma was still known as The Indian Territory and was widely considered a remote and and lawless region.
Your Starting Point
Those of you living in Oklahoma or interested in the possibility of pursuing KGC or Jesse James treasure leads in the "triangle" should use this post as your starting point for further, more detailed research. Treasure has been found in this area, that much is certain...patient and thorough research will give the smart treasure hunter the edge in finding more.
