Jack Clemons buried a large quantity of silver coins in a metal bucket on his property in the early 1900s and died without revealing the exact place of the cache. His property was located on Big Branch Creek, about 3 miles southeast of Quicksand. The old house is still standing on the right hand side of the creek, about 1 mile above its mouth.
