Henry Zedock Chappell's Death Certificate


California Death Index
Name: Henry Zedock Chappell
Birth: 11 Mar 1869, Arkansas
Death: 29 Mar 1946, Los Angeles Co.

Every year Henry would go down south near Los Angelos looking for the lost Dutchman mine. He was on his way back home to Le Grand Ca and when he was at the bus station he died Mysteriously.

He didn't carry ID with him so(for safety reasons the legend tells of evil men murdering people who searched for the mine) So the authorities had no idea who he was was until broadcast it on the radio and someone knew him and called in and confirmed his identity.

This was told to me by my uncle Jerry Charlton who was told this by his father Bob Charlton.
