Cochise Buried Gold – In 1899 a Southern Pacific express railroad  train was robbed of $60,000 in gold coins and bullion by lawmen who turned outlaws, Burt Alvord and Billy Stiles near Cochise.  

Along the old trail between Wilcox and Cochise, the pair hid away in a cabin about 1/2 mile outside Cochise. Rumor has it they buried the gold near the cabin, and agreed they would recover it once the law went away.

Before they had a chance, the Wells Fargo law men jailed Alvord and Stiles was killed. The Wells Fargo agents made a thorough search of the area, but never found the stolen cache.
