    No civil war activity in Lorain County Ohio, but soldiers returned home and many may have brought bullets home with them as well as their uniforms so buttons, belt buckles and bullets may be in the ground. If you are thinking of hunting fields, the ones that produce the most are the ones where a house once stood. Back in the day farms were smaller since they were plowed with horses. Today's farms are bigger since they incorporated many smaller farms from the past.

    When the colonials were in circulation this part of NY (and western PA) was the "Wild Frontier" and west of the Fort Stanwix Line. Off limits by King George because of treaties with the "friendlies".

    America was founded by tough hell-raisers. Rugged citizens who evaded taxes, spoke strongly against tyranny, grew tobacco, brewed beer, distilled spirits, and smuggled weapons. And it will be saved by those same types of citizens.

    It's a pretty tough for coins around seems like more arrowheads and clay pipes than anything.
    Here's some 1873 maps of the county with tons of places around: Mercer County 1873 Pennsylvania Historical Atlas
    I hope this helps out.
