This collection of tidbits of history and stories list many participants in the search. In 1947 the new names were Milo Merrill of Seattle, Harvey Tuttle of Tacoma and two helpers Paul and Cy, all from Washington. Charlie Pike from Tillamook County. They also dug on the spit for the beeswax. Lynn Wood and father, Charles Wood from Portland, lost their lives when their shaft, dug in the sand, caved in summer of 1931. Wilma Hogue and her father also went for the treasure. She was told by her grandmother, who was the last Clatsop tribe Princess, and Wilma's mother was the last princess of the Nehalem Indians. They also came to Clarence Doughney to hear his version. Another name comes up, "Old Man Adams" who was the last of the line of the Adams Tribe.Ed Jarvey, a Satin Indian, told almost the same story.. Otto Shearer of Rockaway has the same story, handed down by Howard and Crane who lived in Garibaldi as Frank Astmann of Michigan. He claims there were two Negros and one escaped and made it all the way to Michigan, telling his story.
