John Hough lived in settled in Hillsboro, Va and to my knowledge was a owner of several mills. My fathers family was also from Hillsboro and I have some pure silver spoons that the silver came from the mines that were somewhere in the general area. I have 4 spoons with the name John Hough on them and 3 with his initials. I was always told that were some sort of decendents of his which would explain why our family had these spoons. There are also a few more of these spoons in which my half sister has. My family surnames were Cummins/Bell/&Ogden. If you have any information on these families it would be appreciated.
