    "... Solomon moved to the waters of Holly Creek, about two miles northeast of Clintwood, where he lived for several years. He owned several slaves, mostly women, who worked in the fields and hunted in the woods. He was known as "Moneymaking Sol" because he made counterfeit money for several years under a cliff near Holly Creek known as "Sol's Cliffs", in the laurel bottoms near Low Gap at the mouth of a branch below where Isaac Mullins later lived. Solomon's nephews Isaac and John Mullins helped him "strike" the money. In 1837, Solomon and sons Peter and Spencer were charged by the Russell County, Virginia court for making counterfeit twenty-five cent pieces, half dollars, and dollars. ..."
