“Last week seven full blooded Indians were in the Concord neighborhood and gave out that they were hunting roots and herbs, but the general opinion is that they were hunting a buried treasure and are the parties who have been digging for treasure in this section for the past year.  Their method of traveling was remarked for its peculiarity, going in single file and avoiding the roads and cutting across fields to any point they desire to travel.”  from the Warsaw Independent, June 16, 1906
