Pirate Charles Wilson
Wilson’s hideout was at Woody Knoll in Worchester County, Maryland. The directions were in the form of a letter Wilson wrote to his brother, George, in 1750: “There are three creeks lying 100 paces or more north of the second inlet about Chincoteague Island, which is at the southward end of the peninsula. At the head of the third creek to the northward is a bluff facing the Atlantic Ocean with three cedar trees growing on it, each about 1 and 1/3 yards apart. Between the trees, I buried ten ironbound chests, bars of silver, gold, diamonds and jewels to the sum of 200,000 pounds sterling. Go to Woody Knoll secretly and remove the treasure. As far as is known, the treasure is still there.
