I can only assume that people on this discussion topic are familiar with Will. If not, please have a read of my article 'Oak Island Treasure Tales' here: http://www.andrewgough.co.uk/oakisland.html.

So, I reached out to Will on the 30th of December, 2009, and asked:

"William, hi. How are you? Are you ok?

Best,

Andrew"



He responded on the 7th of February to say:


"Found it..

Head of J Baptist

Saw it with own eyes. Absol no doubt its him."


I proceeded to ask further questions, as you might expect, to which he changed the subject somewhat and replied that he was in a Mid-Northern US state and city (which I have withheld) and provided a map of the town and a view as to the cross roads where an artefact was hidden, a specific depth in the ground.

I've asked for more detail be he has not responded. I've waited to share this in hopes of receiving permission to share the map and US town name as it is quite interesting, but I am not able to do that without his permission.

So the saga continues.

Sorry this is a bit annoying lol. I know how many of you feel about this story...

Best,

Andrew

Chicago. (my guess)


You know if this is true, they are gonna have a hard time explaining what it is doing in the US and NOT in some crusty ole cathedral in Europe.

Edit to add: I LOVE the crusty ole cathedral's of Europe...peace, out.

Hee hee. Nope - not Chicago. But warm (ish).....

And it was not clear if the the head was in the US or not. It appears to be a different artefact lol

Best,

Andrew

aahhhh...the plot thickens.

I could spend all day guessing, so I'll quit doing that and just try to be patient until you get permission to give us more info...

Dang...it's like watching a strip-tease or something...

Hi Andrew,

Well, just when I thought Will had dropped off the face of the Earth, we get another update. He probably didn't elaborate on this, but he didn't happen to tell you how he was able to ascertain that it was in fact the head of John the Baptist did he? Or why this is in fact significant to his quest (aside from it being the head of John the Baptist and all)?

Cheers,

Indy

Hi Indiana. Hi Crimson. I hope you are well.

Funny about Farve as I am actually a Viking fan for my sins lol

And you are getting VERY warm with the state!

Indiana, regarding the head - that is all Will said. he switeched the subject as soon as I started to ask some questions...

Best,

Andrew

I was looking at a list earlier, of places around the world associated with relics of John the Baptist, and there were quite a few as you might imagine; places as far flung as Egypt and Bengal. One of the more surprising was the town of Halifax, which made me think of Nova Scotia, but it is in fact the town of that name in Yorkshire in England.

From Wiki:
Quote:
The name Halifax is said to be a corruption of the Old English words for Holy and Face, part of the local legend that the head of John the Baptist was buried here after his execution. The legend is almost certainly medieval rather than ancient, though the town's coat of arms still carries an image of the saint. (The oldest written mentions of the town have the spelling Haliflax, apparently meaning "holy flax (field)", the second "l" having been subsequently lost by dissimilation. ..... Halifax Minster, parts of which go back to the 12th century, has always been dedicated to St John the Baptist. The Minster's first organist, in 1766, was William Herschel, who went on to discover the planet Uranus.


This is the town coat of arms referred to above.
Image

Given the fate of John the Baptist, something else this town is known for seems gruesomely apposite.
Quote:
Halifax was also notorious for the 'Halifax Gibbet', an early form of the guillotine used to execute criminals by decapitation, it was last used in 1650.

One wonders how he can say such a thing. How would he, or anyone, have any idea what he looked like?

But an intriguing story, obviously. Hope to learn more in due course.

Will seems to have travelled some way from Oak Island.

Oh come on........it's an interesting read if nothing else.

Will, we need an update.
Please, in my best southern voice. :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink: :wink:


Oh my G_d! I finally solved the mystery! No, not that one...not that one either...your post resurrecting this thread caused me to look at the original post from Andrew and as soon as I did I realized that "Will" is Lyndale Quesenberry, as in "SecretofNine", as in "Water". Remember he wanted to be paid to dig up the Spear of Longinus at a crossroads in the Midwest?

Well spotted Caelum, I missed that link. Oh well, at least we know for definite that it's all BS ( not that anyone thought otherwise ). "Will" should take up a new profession because the Dan Beige readers out there would love this tale.

Caelum, I might be mistaken but Lyndale believed the spear was in Ohio. Will was pushing for Minnesota. Who knows you might be right, as far fetched as Will`s story is it seems way more reasonable than anything old Lyndale had to share.
