Swift, on the other hand, claims through his journal, to have ceased his mining and counterfeiting operations in 1769 and departed the wilderness. He did attempt to find the mines in later years but he was old and blind for his time in prison. Swift died it is believed in 1800.
In my book Swift, Boone and Swift do encounter each other and the results are quite different than the historical records reveal.
