    Silver mine in Russell County, Virginia

    Silver mine in Russell County, Virginia.
    Just returned from a boots on the ground trip and was going through some of my Swift files and found this article. I though some of you might find it interesting. If any of you have ever read James A. Dougherty’s Geographical approach to the Swift Legend
    (http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~vahsswv/historicalsketches/legend-swifts.html)
    this article would fall into the “Clinch version”. As to what happened to this mining venture I have no idea, but it does prove silver is in these mountains somewhere.
