Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure Maps Part 4

Sunday, February 21st, 2010 1:28pm

Knights of the Golden Circle treasure maps must be considered in the light of what is unusual on them. Look to see if any letters or words are out of what the context would indicate. For instance, suppose the Knights of the Golden Circle treasure map were written in Spanish. If the entire documentation were recorded in Spanish and signed by one Sven Johnson something is out of place! You must examine closely the name that is out of place. Perhaps begin by assigning a numerical value to each letter within the name. This was a common practice within many cultures. So let’s examine that Swedish-American name in the light of what we have just said.

A=1 B=2 C=3 D=4 E=5 F=6 G=7 H=8 I=9 J=10 K=11 L=12 M=13 N=14
O=15 P=16 Q=17 R=18 S=19 T=20 U=21 V=22 W=23 X=24 Y=25 Z=26

Sven Johnson
S=19 v=22 e=5 n=14 for a total of 60
J=10 o=15 h=8 n=14 s=19 o=15 n=14 for a total of 95

Now what do we do with this information? This is where trial and error comes in. We may have a distance or a compass degree bearing. This is where the context must be discovered. We may have to add the two sums for 145. We may have to subtract the smaller sum from the larger for a total of 35. We may have a combination of an angle and a distance. Check every possible combination.

This example has been fabricated as an illustration. The point is you must examine that which does not fit the context. I can not drive home enough the importance of the context.

Another example would be a Knights of the Golden Circle treasure map with a short statement on it. Look carefully! You may see a single letter repeated several times but sometimes it is written forward and other times that same letter may be reversed. This can be a reversal, this could be a deletion or what have you according to context.

The Knights of the Golden Circle treasure map is usually written in stone or carved in a tree, literally with no traditional map ever made at all. It is important to NOT move any stones or trees untill the Knights of the Golden Circle treasure map has been decoded. If you suspect that the signs or symbols you have found are Knights of the Golden Circle treasure map signs or symbols, call or write Dr. Melancon immediately for suggestions on how to proceed.

Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure Map Signs 5

Wednesday, March 03rd, 2010 10:53am

Knights of the Golden Circle treasure map signs have been guarded carefully over the years. The purpose the treasures were hidden and guarded was for the resurgence of the Golden Crescent. Jesse James, often connected with the Knights of the Golden Circle treasure map signs, was indeed raising capital for the resurgence of the South. Several years ago I was privileged to work with a group of treasure hunters that had discovered a contractual agreement between the leaders of the Knights of the Golden Circle, “KGC”, and Jesse James. Jesse was not an outlaw in the traditional sense of the word. He was working for a little under $250.00 per month to rob the Union (‘the bad guys’) and using the money to restore the new world (territories in Mexico, Central America, and the Caribbean to be included in the United States as slave states) of the Golden Crescent (‘the good guys’).

If you look at it in that respect, you will begin to think more like the KGC people and understand why they did what they did. Then you can understand why the treasures were hidden with a large cache that was protected by the Sentinel and why there were at least 2 small caches for the Sentinel to get paid from if conventional pay wasn’t forthcoming for some reason. This is why there are death traps with the large caches and there are no death traps with the small caches. If you do not understand the death traps of the large caches, I would strongly advise you not to tamper with them. A small cache or two would allow you to live modestly for some time. A large cache may not allow you to live at all. We will discuss death traps in a later article.

One of the reasons that Spanish signs have been altered is due to the theft of over 30 written treasure maps about 1910. These treasure maps were recovered later but in the meantime the on-site signs and symbols from these locations were altered and there are many deceptive signs at the location. Within these deceptions were secret codes to explain the changes to anyone that understood the Knights of the Golden Circle signs and symbols. So when you interpret on-site signs and symbols, you must be advised to look for any drawing, unusual tree formation, rock or picture that is out of sync with the rest of the map figures. This may be the one figure that changes the entire map.

Knights of the Golden Circle, Treasure Map Signs 6

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010 1:25pm

Knights of the Golden Circle, Treasure Map Signs 6 duplicated much of the Spanish work in signs and symbols of treasure hunting, but not exactly. This means the length of a line could give the distance or depth of the treasure or distance to the next sign or symbol. You must be very accurate in this measurement and it’s interpretation or it will be of no value for you. Also, if the line is on a horizontal surface, take your compass reading to discover the degrees the line is pointing, and then adjust according to the magnetic declination of the year the treasure was hidden. Since magnetic declination varies from year to year, use the directional based upon the year the treasure site was established. (Magnetic declination for years from the 1500’s on are available from Dr. John Melancon).

Another favorite of the Spanish and the Knights of the Golden Circle, Treasure Map Signs was the drill holes. Drill holes can establish the actual site location, the distance and the compass direction if read properly. We will not discuss this process within this article as these drill holes vary according to site. The parameters of how to read these elusive drill holes signs will vary according to area and those that hid the treasure. However, one clue that is general applying to all drill holes is to carefully clean any drill hole out using a small stick, compressed air (cans of compressed air for cleaning computers are the best). In most cases remember that a drill hole was made with a star drill. It is generally slightly larger that a ½” piece of emt conduit. Carry a piece of this conduit with you (about 18” is excellent) if you are encountering drill holes and after cleaning the hole, insert the emt into the hole. From this you may get better ideas of direction (although this depends on which type of hole it is) but you can make a mark on the emt with a felt pen and measure the depth of the hole when you withdraw the conduit. This may also be an indication of measurement related to the treasure. This is only one tip for Knights of the Golden Circle, Treasure Map Signs, there are many!

Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure Maps #15

Wednesday, August 04th, 2010 3:31pm

Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure Maps of the KGC and the on-sight signs include many objects other than animals. If it is an object, consider what the object does. What is the item used for? Is it the item a tool? What does that tool do? This could give you a clue for what they are saying but you must consider the context. Always take a series of photographs of each item and place in the picture an indicator for direction and an indicator for size. That way you can sit next to the fire on a cold winter night and examine the object and understand the direction it points and the size it is. Many times there is much information in the measurements of each part of the object. When I have someone send me a photograph of an item, I first consider if it is horizontal or vertical in nature. If it is horizontal I have them take a 12” ruler and lay it so the ‘0’ end at magnetic north and the ‘12’ at the southern position. This gives me the directional and a way of measuring the different parts of the item off of the length of the ruler. If the item is vertical in nature I have a hole in the ‘0’ end of the ruler, tie a string to the ruler and suspend the ruler so the increments are visible in the photo.

Now examine the item (non-animal) for its use. It if were say a knife, look to see where it is pointing but watch carefully for any reversal signs. The hilt might even divide the treasure and the point show the direction. The lengths may indicate how far to the two treasures. You see, a knife is designed to cut or divide. And although that may not be the use of your knife, it could be. You must read it all within the context.

Spanish signs were usually incorporated into a KGC site. Many times the signs were merged to confuse a Spanish sign interpreter. Dr. John Melancon has had extensive experience and success reading these signs to facilitate a successful “find”. If you need assistance at your location contact Dr. Melancon below or phone, 480 463 7464.

Knights of the Golden Circle treasure Maps 14

Saturday, July 17th, 2010 4:30pm

Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure maps of the KGC and signs should be read within their own right and not from a standard Treasure Hunters Manual of signs. The emails and phone calls are generally of the nature “I have a stone carved into the shape of an . . . . . . , what does it mean”. With KGC it depends on the area and the persons that did the deposit. I would love to be able to help, but I can not without seeing the context of the signs. I would like to get you thinking more like the KGC and make it easier for you to find.

Begin by looking at the individual sign. If it is an animal, consider the attributes of the animal. Say it were a cheetah. The cheetah is best known for its ability to run. Is it indicating such within the context? Consider the turtle of the Spanish and the KGC. Does it the have legs? Then it is walking. If it has no legs, it is going to be right there, it is going no where. If it has one leg, watch carefully it may be a pointer. One of the more significant features is the eye. There are three positions to consider for the eye. First, is one eye not carved where it should be? Then the other eye is looking at something and gives a directional for another sign, an entryway, a deposit, etc. If an eye is carved but closed, then consider this: the eye is present but it is ‘lights out’ time. Watch for a death trap. Or it may be that it just indicates there is nothing there. If both eyes are open, carefully study for differences, particularly letters or numbers near the eye and watch the lines around the eye carefully for a pattern or a map. The lines may indicate a topo map drawn for the cache or next sign. Compare these lines carefully to the surrounding topography. There are many other signs from the eyes, so sit down and consider what it may be telling you. So you have three things to consider about each eye: is it missing, is it closed or is it open. Then you must apply how it is being used and the context of that information. Then compare the information from the two eyes and proceed from there.

Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure maps, Spanish and KGC signs and symbols art complex and many per site. Take many pictures, do not disturb anything that MAY be a sign, DO NOT REMOVE any of the signs or symbols. If you need help with the interpretation of these treasure map indicators, call Dr. John Melancon or email for further help 480 463 7464. Click here for the next Article 15.

Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure maps 13

Monday, June 14th, 2010 4:18pm

Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure maps and the signs to get to KGC cache sights is the current topic we are reviewing. The last article encouraged you to begin to watch landmarks, both currently known and those that are now forgotten due to changes in our lifestyles. I collect old maps and many times the landmarks that are now forgotten are on there. The old topographical maps from the 60’s even have archaeological sites on them that are no longer placed on the maps to keep people from knowing where they are. Please, do not disturb any archeological site, but notice the landmarks that are no longer shown. Perhaps you should start your search there.

We then moved on to hoot owl trees. Hoot owl trees are an invaluable source of information, generally directional information and even divisional information. I have never seen one that gave everything I needed to locate a treasure.

Turtle treasure signThe next thing you should look for is rocks that are carved into shapes. In the areas of the large repository I have many times found huge stones carved into animals. The Spanish did the same thing (i.e. the poodle, the Santa Fe horse, etc.). Perhaps those of you working on the Peralta stones should reconsider the significance of the sight. Perhaps it is Spanish and perhaps it is Spanish that is reworked by the KGC.

To help you understand the importance of these stones, I have included a photo of one of the most common animals carved by the Spanish. Lo and behold, it is a Spanish turtle that stands about 12’ tall. This has been altered by the KGC with a map carved on it. The KGC signs, no matter what they are, must always be considered under with their thought patterns. Look carefully as to whether the turtle has legs, tail, etc. If it has no tail, of course it is the head that does the pointing. If it has no legs, it can’t walk anywhere so look close. Are the eyes open or shut? This particular turtle is massive and the photo has been cropped to not show location and certain sign to. Watch for every detail. These animals give tremendous information concerning the treasure. Further sign will be discussed in the next article, Click here for Article 14.

The Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure maps symbols and signs mentioned in this article may be difficult to interpret due to time, erosion, and an untrained eye. Dr. Melancon is a foremost authority on Spanish and KGC treasure maps, symbols and signs. Email or call for help on your Spanish or Knights of the Golden Circle project. 480-463 7464

Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure Maps 12

Monday, June 07th, 2010 3:05pm

Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure maps of the are most generally misunderstood because the treasure hunter relies upon one sign to interpret the entire treasure location. One such story that comes to mind is the hunter that had been using a jack-o-lantern sign to interpret an entire treasure sight! If you want to understand the hiding of the valuables, you must consider more than a single sign. The jack-o-lantern is not a hiding sign, it is an informational sign about the hiding of the deposit. Yet this person found a hill, thought it was the shape of the drawing if you looked at it from above (although it did not look like that on topos or aerial photos) and therefore the location the treasure was deposited and commenced looking for the rest of the face; two rocks for eyes, a mark or object for a nose and a mouth. Now some of you would have obliged this young man and put a smiley face on the hill and it would have been a cute moment in a futile hunt.

Treasure signs of TurkeyYou must always get the large overview. I have stressed from the beginning the importance of the context of every sign. While recently in Turkey, a series of holes was discovered in the tops of large stones. They have proven to guide me to significant locations important to the ancients of 400 BC and previous! No single hole told me anything, but when considered in whole, they even began to give me the date the artifacts were placed en situ! These artifacts will be excavated archaeologically. Watch for the entire story at this web site.

Let me help you understand better the jack-o-lantern better. The jack-o-lantern is informational. He tells you very little in some cases. Sometimes he is just saying good-bye. You must find the rest of the signs and the jack-o-lantern will then tell you more. First, within the context, look where he is looking. If it is done as an outside type signor on a map, look where he is looking. Then look at the eyes – if they are closed, don’t go where he is looking within the context of the sign. When you find the entry from the rest of the sign, you are going to find a death trap. If you have a closed set of eyes, get contacted with Dr. John Melancon before you attempt any further actions!. He has worked extensively diffusing death traps. In fact, Dr. John Melancon is writing a book concerning the death traps that will be available this winter. Keep watching this sight as it will be available only through this web site! Underground Discovery! What is a Knights of the Golden Circle site worth? Your life if you open it up wrong.

Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure Maps 11

Saturday, May 22nd, 2010 3:07pm

KGC tree borerKnights of the Golden Circle treasure maps (the KGC) must be dealt with on an individual basis and a simulation of what they were doing must be considered. You have the written maps, the maps cut in stone and in shaped stones. Then you have the signs that stand individually or collectively, which we will deal with in this article.

First, watch carefully for knot holes. They may not be genuine, but they were actually formed by drilling a hole with a bung boring tool.

Chemicals were then inserted in the hole to cause the tree to scar over the area making it appear to be a knot hole. Watch carefully for placement, multiples etc. as these are very important directives to find the next sign or the placement of the treasure.

KGC hoot owl treeAnother treasure marker of the KGC is the ‘hoot owl tree’. The trees are shaped by breaking, bending and tying, weighting with rocks and even grafting. The KGC had many well trained in topiary and apothecary and could easily take nature and shape it to tell their story and most people do not pay any attention to what they see in the wilderness. At most they may make a comment concerning something unusual but seldom view these things as a treasure sign. For example, here is a hoot owl tree that was even divided and very unnatural. This photograph is only about one week old by the way! This tree was formed right after the Civil War. Directions to treasure, waypoints, signs and division of the treasure has been found in these trees.

So the next time you see a tree that looks unusual, perhaps you should stop and examine this. Watch also for items that are imbedded in the tree and have grown around them. Multiple shaped rocks, metal objects, pointers and the like are all common for them to use as signs and as pointers. Don’t forget to run that metal detector over the tree as some items are completely grown over and can not be seen.

Knights of the Golden Circle treasure maps were fashioned and distributed throughout the United States, if you think you have KGC, signs and symbols or treasure maps, even though they may seem to be Spanish in origin, and need professional help deciphering them, contact Dr. John Melancon, 480 463 6579 or email using the form below.

Knights of the Golden Circle treasure maps 10

Thursday, May 06th, 2010 10:35am

Knights of the Golden Circle treasure maps often included many formats for signs and symbols. Some of the basics of these signs and symbols have been reviewed in other publications.

Although we will return to treasure signs in the near future, I must pause here for a stern warning. The Knights of the Golden Circle were very familiar with the building of death traps. They understood well the Spanish death traps and added a few of their own twists to them. For example, I have personally seen and dealt with the water traps of the KGC. Once you are inside the entryway of the largest of the KGC repositories, you may think you have found the entrance to that repository. In your excitement you will want to remove the stone you are sure forms the entry to that repository. Removal of that stone may very well cause an immediate and violent flooding of the entire chamber from a lake above the repository. It was not the entry to the repository; it was the entryway for the water that will drown you. Other traps I have seen include mechanical rock falls, sand falls and bottled chemicals where a falling rock or a rock you stepped on will breaks the glass and the chemical will kill you. The death traps are very well designed and I would not recommend you attempt to diffuse them without help from someone that knows them quite well. I have had some excellent training from when I was younger and even now the sweat breaks beads on my forehead as I cautiously proceed!

Remember, for example, that the southern sympathizers in New York (KGC) used Greek Fire to try to burn the city down and were very close to succeeding. Greek Fire, when exposed to the air is combustible and phosphorus based. These Knights played for keeps and they knew their Chemistry 101. Be cautious; be careful!

Knights of the Golden Circle treasure maps, signs, symbols and interpretations take years of study. If you have KGC or Spanish treasure maps, signs or symbols that you would like Dr. Melancon to assist you with, use the email form below or call 480 463 7464

Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure Maps 9

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010 8:05am

Knights of the Golden Circle Treasure Maps varied greatly in the methodology of hiding. In the last KGC article (#8) I included a photograph of one of the location items from an actual KGC site.

As you view this sign, it is clear that it is a pointer. Upon finding such an item, most treasure hunters would go the direction of the upper point of triangle, believing that the point between the keys would be the directional indicator. While this is true, you will have a most difficult time retrieving the treasure. Whenever the KGC sends me directly to a location I become very wary. I have had enough experience with death traps to proceed cautiously. Going directly to a large cache will get people killed. In this case, the keys unlock the secrets. The thinking of the Knights of the Golden Circle while constructing their treasure maps was pretty straightforward but they were still deceptive. The pointer takes you immediately to the treasure complete with death awaiting you. The distance was not the length of the bar as explained in article 8, the length of the bar gave the distance to the locations the keys were pointing! The locations that the keys pointed to gave away the interpretation of distance and gave more ‘keys’ to opening the ‘vault’. So the thinking was straightforward as I said. Keys unlock things. They did here too. But they were deceptive, knowing the average person would ignore the keys and go straight to the location. This would ultimately protect their treasure through death traps and get rid of the person attempting to take it without their permission. I have seen this type of indicator used primarily in the Southwest U.S. and as of yet not elsewhere.

Of special interest, I was just given a photograph copy of a Knights of the Golden Circle treasure map template and I have been asked to resolve what was carved into stone. It is very unusual to see such a template carved on stone and left in a place that is easily discovered. This KGC treasure map is in the Southwest once again and has two crossed arrows with a pointer immediately between the arrows. Similar to the photo of the sign we just discussed. One of the arrows does not have a tip, but rather a short dialogue in place of the arrowhead. Stay tuned, hunters, I am thinking of working this treasure map template through and explaining parts of this as we resolve this one. This Knights of the Golden Circle treasure map template “in stone” is just a few miles from a major repository that has already been discovered.

The Knights of the Golden Circle and their treasure maps were prevalent throughout the southern United States. Dr. John Melancon is one of the foremost authorities on Knights of the Golden Circle treasure maps, history, signs, symbols, death traps and templates.
