So I found an older map that has shown a few areas of promise that I didn’t know about. Again, it’s all about the research. One of the areas had “Sch” on it. I presumed that “Sch” stood for school and research played that out. The placement was odd, as it is a wooded area and I didn’t understand why it would be there. Not a ton around there. A school was placed near the location later, and I have hunted there before. Not much going in the past – but I need to rehunt with the Deus.
So, I went around where I thought the school may be and found a button that I knew was period, 1820s-1840s. But I couldn’t find anything else definitive. So I moved around a bunch to different hillsides. I was having no luck, but went back to the original location. Then I started hitting the buttons. Then I started seeing bits of brick. I got excited. I had to scoot, but I will be back. The spot is very stingy, so I’m wondering if it wasn’t used long. Time will tell. Would love to get a super old coin from that location.
