Cast & Crew
When the Long brothers try to jump the gold claim owned by "Kentuck" Windfield Gordon and John Silverwood, Kentuck is killed while defending his property and Silverwood sends Kentuck's orphaned daughter Nannie back to her Uncle Henry in Kentucky. When she arrives, Uncle Henry is away on business, leaving Nannie at the mercy of Henry's second wife, who mistreats the girl as a poor relation and resents the competition she presents to her own daughter, Rachel. Aunt Chlorindy, the mammy who helped raise Nannie, protects her, and when the girl is driven out of the house by Mrs. Gordon, Aunt Chlorindy finds her refuge with Mrs. Morgan, a wealthy widow living nearby. There Nannie meets Tom Boling, a rich young bachelor who falls in love with her. Justice is served when Tom marries Nannie rather than Rachel as Mrs. Gordon had planned, and Silverwood returns for the ceremony, rich from striking gold, and falls in love with Mrs. Morgan.
