Cherokees Return to their Silver Mines

Chief McIntosh
About 1914 a wagon trail of Indians appeared in several of the North Georgia Counties. They were there to collect hidden silver from old silver mines. This would be the children and grandchildren of those who were driven west to Oklahoma about 1833. The mines were scattered throughout Forsyth, Paulding, Lumpkin and White Counties. Another place where Cherokees buried silver was in creek beds and surrounding ditches.
