    3 hours at a defunct church grove

    While searching for new sites, I decided to
    go over the Department of transportation maps from 1946 again
    and today I decided on this former Grove

    so I ran over and started looking for the property owner.
    seemed everywhere I drove I saw this woman mowing grass.
    first at the cemetery, then at the driveway to the owner of the properties house So I
    introduced myself & She gave me permission.
    saying there was rumor this was a church grove for this 1831 Church

    Needless to say, this place did not have any Gas rebate.
    the grove was gone by the late 60's

    went back over showed her my finds, told her I Couldn't believe
    I didn't find any silver, but would be back between
    late fall & early Spring to try again.
    Have to wait for the poison to die off.

    Not sure IF I Got any sap on me or not.
    but was sweating & Rubbing my eyes allot
    which worried me enough to quit early

    Awesome finds Jeff! I love that milk bottle!
    Is that the grove we drove by last summer on the way to another grove? Near where we saw the skunk in the middle of the day.

    I checked Terapeak and a one-pint Maurer's Wayside Dairy milk bottle sold last June on eBay for $61. That's a great price for an old piece of glass!

    Now that is research!

    Man, I can't believe you didn't find any old silvers. If you had not found that walking halve last week I would think your detector needs to go in for repair.
    Incredible!
    NICE TRIBE!!!!
