JOIIN STUMPS BUPS'I) (ILD.
The Tenant of as Old Marylaud4 .an.
sion Suddenly Becomes Bloh
When old John Stump di, 1 in thb
early part of the present century at
h's home at Stafford, ten miles north
of this place, writes a Havre de Grace
Md., correspondent of the New York
World, his heirs were surprised that
they did not find pil s of glittedrpg
gold stowed away in the little irop
safe in which it wes .thought that ie
had been heaping thorsi ids for yeps
Instead they found bundt J of mortl
gagn. , deads, promissoly not. and
other pI,eti whleh certified h's for
tune to be $700,000. Sititfied with
this snug inheritance, they soon fore
got their disappointment in not dis.
covering the bags of gold. When,
twenty-five years ago, the horse capie
into the pc craslon of Mr. Stump's
grand daughter. Mrs. Smith.son, of
Cecil county, the story of the buried
tre..su~ existed in the neighborhood
merely ~s a tradition.
A few years ago Mrs. Smithson han
ded the old homestead over to the
care of a tenant named Wil'son. IIe
was told by hbs neighbors of the tra
dition abumt the buricd gold. lie wrs
too pratical to give credenea to the
stork ', but they had a different effect
upon Mr. Willson's brotther A'ex'ender
who spent 1is time peLsutpg the old
books and papers which he for' d
stored away in the garrel. Two or
three weeks ago, while Mr. W'son
was looking through a pondt ot ; old
book he found a slip of paper which
indicated the lucatiou of the I lden I
Two days later a big hole wer : ,n
by a neighbor in the garden (,f the
old Stump farm. At the bottom of t'Ie
excavation was a cavity f-oa wl, ch
a box about eighteen incht 3 square as
removed. There were no bits of wob I
in the hole, ahd from this fact it is i.
lieved that the box most have been a
metallic one. Farmer Wi'son's wife,
to whom the discovery of the gold had
been related, had bcome so overbor
denel with the secret that she had to
get another woman to help her keepl
0 It. And the lucky disooveyy *rblb
the Wilson faally Intended should be
kept a secrt S now becomepaobilc
property, Thse feWgmd that the beal
of Mr. Stumpa wold blama mte oamey
and that they might be deprived of
their suddenly acquired wealth. Mr.
Wilson said that the amount dug up
was $150,000 in gold, but it i general.
ly believed by those who have made
estimates of the eeaggeIt .of 4le beg.
that about $50,000 wa. found, and ear.
tainly not more than $7,O000. At any

contemplated a attalC alteto hi house
to rob him of his wreUlh. TI.gsae
b's money he brietit. The lteamed
attack was never mtde, and it h asip,
posed that Mr. Stump was satisfied to
have his ':enasure ramli where he
had conc.raled it, and that, he died be
fore he concluded to resurrect it. .
is also thought that he feared a sp4ddp
death, and to leave some kOpwledge
behind him of the buried motey he
placed the slip of paper itt the book.
Mr. Stump made his money from
the flour m!lls which he built along
Deer Creek, a narrow but swift r~.n
ning stream which emptied into the
Susquehanna. The farmers of Herford
and Cecil counties, th's State, and of
the southern counties of Pennsylvania
brought their grain to the Stump mills
to be ground. He wf also a slave..
holder and a farmer on an extensive
scale. During the war of the Revolue
tiou and of 1812 his flour sold as high
as $100 a barrel. Hie was the wealth

Some of Mr. Stump's descendants
have occupied the most prominent
positions :n the State. his grandson,
Hcenry W. Archer of Bel Air, is one
of its best ki:own lawers and could
have been elected Governor had he
wished to relinquish his lucrative law
practice. Another grandson is Steven
son Archer, ex-member of Congress
and now State Treasurer. Another
desctnilant is the late A. A. Sttump,
President of a Baltimore bank, while
two others have sat on the Judicial
benches of the State. M:ss Stump,
formerly a Har:ford county belle, is
the wife cf Admiral Le Roy, of New,
York, andl another member of the
family is the wife ot Mr. Murray of
the same city.
Mr. Stump's surviving heirs will
make no effort to recover the money
