Joseph Smith and Buried Treasure in Salem MA

More than Holy Revelations…

Nathaniel Henry Felt was a friend of Brigham Young and bordered Young’s daughter. It was from Felt’s house now on Charter Street did they both hear of Joseph Smith’s assassination on his campaign trail for president in Illinois. Though before his death, Smith took a trip to Salem to look for hidden treasure…

Here from the Christian Advocate:
“As Linn describes the facts a Mormon named Burgess had gone to Kirtland with a story about a large amount of money that was buried in the cellar of a house of Salem which had belonged to a widow. He alone knowing the location Smith credited the report and on July 25 1836 he started with his brother Hyrum Sidney Rigdon and Oliver Cowdery for Salem and there he hired a house and occupied the same throughout the month teaching the people from house to house. When they got there Burgess said that time had so changed the appearance of the houses that he could not be sure which was the widow’s and he left Salem in disgrace. The house that Smith hired he thought might be the right one and it was when his associates were becoming discouraged that he delivered this revelation it is published in the book of Doctrine and Covenants without giving the name of the place where it was received but Ebenezer Robinson who believed in the Prophet’s divine calling…”

Could the treasure still be in a tunnel attached to the old widow’s cellar?
