The Remarkable True Story of One Frenchman’s Quest That Brought Him to Wise County
In a remote corner of Southwest Virginia, Pierre Francois du Tubeuf staked his claim to build St. Marie on the Clinch River — a new French colony far from the threats of the French Revolution.
With letters of introduction from Lafayette and dreams of creating his coal empire in Virginia, du Tubeuf was forced to leave his wife behind in France. He survived a deadly sea voyage only to have his servants abandon him upon arrival in Virginia.
Then he faced greater nightmares when he reached Russell County, where nothing was as he had been promised.
