Where is the lost treasure of the Silver Mine in Sugar Hill?



Legend around Sugar Hill, Georgia talks of a silver mine and a large cache of coins.

No one knows who told the story of the silver diggings on his deathbed, today, but they do know the stories were told to a Baptist minister. The minister that lived nearby Carnesville told the story to a John Lumpkin. Mr. Lumpkin told the tale to Moses Lott who informed his friend Mr. Pendley.

This is the story that the preacher told and the directions that were given to Moses Lott and Pendley. The man that was on his deathbed related this story.

He and a few other South Carolinians were prospecting for silver and gold. They crossed the Oconee River at Hurricane Shoals and then followed a trail to the Chattahoochee River. They hiked downstream to the mouth of a large creek and then headed upstream. Somehow, the man telling the story and one other was separated from the group and was captured by Spaniards. The Spaniards took them around 4 to 5 miles south of the mouth of the creek. Here they put the two South Carolinians to work in a silver mine along with some Indian slaves.

After they mined, the ore was taken south about 5 miles to an island full of grass, oak trees and swamp brush. In the middle of the island, the Spaniards were hard at work concentrating the ore into coins and bullion.

The Spaniard began to worry that the Indians new of their work and caved in the mine. They also buried a wagonload of silver coins in the middle of the floor along and set it ablaze.

Here are the directions used by Pendley and Lott, however, they never found the silver mine or any of coins, the log cabin, or any remains.

Go two miles north of Suwanne Creek in Gwinnett County, there you will find an island in Beaver Run Creek, the silver mine is five miles south.
