Digging a Hole: The Legend of Dungeon Rock

The year is 1658. The place, The Saugus River in Massachusetts. The scene: four men rowing hellbent for leather upriver as far as possible, then disembarking from the boat, possibly with a chest. A chest full of pirate booty!

Well, the chest part may be embellished, but there were many who claimed to be a witness to the four men rowing upriver. Four pirates creating a legend that almost two hundred years later would drive another man to dig a hole until the day he died.
