Hay thanks Rick I was talking to some people & they asked me If I had heard about the linching and I said I heard something long ago Some of my Baker ancestors was in the civil war and ended up with some silver their sons later made counterfit coins out of it but before they could spend any their mom dumped it in a creek in place called Fate hole on Bold camp they also lost some gold at bottom of pound mtn.on va side and about 3 cannons and a load of guns and about 4 wagons because their party was killed at the top of pound mtn. their homes was at elkhorn creek on mountain they went home and gave up the war . they came back 18 years later and couldn't find it they searched several times they said they wasn't sure after the length of time where for sure it was. this is what we were talking about when that linching came up. Maby we are distant cousins thanks for the info.
