How did Treasure Mountain get its name?
More recently, a local area family, who claims to be direct descendants of Le Blanc, professes to be in possession of an authentic map written in French.

After years of search, the family members claim to have located seven of the eight landmarks that are mentioned on the map. Legends of America
