    You need to keep on keeping on. The flared lip octagonal one in the middle looks like it ought to be pontiled. If digging one footing turned up that much, there's not telling what else is under there.

    House was built in 1870 according to town records but this may have been a trash pit from an older dwelling.

    If the house was built over a trash pit, the house may have protected a lot of metal relics, as well. I'd keep digging.
