    I misspoke, I meant "preservation" of course. Do you a very fine job. I'd love to speak to you sometime about technique. Again, very nice finds.

    Hi Noah, thanks for your post.
    The items that you're asking about are a mystery to me as well.
    They're made of lead, they have a letter stamped into the body and have a square nail hole punched into them as well.

    I can only assume that there are others yet to be found at this site... but what was their use for?

    Best of luck to you in Ohio,
    Dave

    Thank you Trezurehunter.
    It's always fun to find an old site that even the farmer had know idea was there.

    Good morning Eric,
    Thank you for your compliment, I'd be happy to talk to you about my preservation techniques.

    I've posted a lot of my restored finds, along with the methods that I use here... Restoration Projects

    I'll PM you my cell number, feel free to text or email me with any questions Eric.

    Thank you for your post and words of support smallfoot.
    There's another house close by identified on the old map here as well, I just haven't found it yet.

    It's always been one of my personal rules not to detect after the field's been planted. The farmers in my area have been very generous with their permissions to detect their fields and there's more then enough sites for me to investigate until the crops are harvested. I'm just waiting for two large sites to be disked for next years planting now that the wheat grass has been sprayed. These sites produced well after the winter wheat came off, but I just know there's more to be found.
    Hope you're having a great year,
    Dave




    That was my personal rule until a few years or so ago. Until one of the farmers asked me why am I wasting my time walking on a plowed field when I could wait for him to level it during the seeding season. I refused to do it for a few years until he finally convinced me. Couldn't believe the difference! Don't forget, they go on it with their huge tractors long after the crops are seeded. And as I have mentioned, I never did any damage to the crops and if I noticed an even tiniest difference I would stop doing it right away. I think for us not being farmers it is hard to comprehend how tough those crops are (I'm talking about soy, corn and wheat).
    Good luck with your other fields, hopefully this fall will be long and sunny. Last year wasn't that great over here with lots of rain, but so far so good.

    Thanks for your post Anton, I apologize for the late follow up response.

    For some reason, it just doesn't feel right in my gut when I detect a field that's been planted. That having been said, I have detected in farm fields that were planted with corn.
    The corn was a foot tall and I was swinging in between the rows, being careful not to dig up any of the young stalks.

    If I ever did receive permission directly from the farmer that it was OK as long as I was careful, I'd probably give it a shot.
    I've always wondered what I'm missing when I'm swinging over the ridges & furrows.

    Hope you have a productive fall too buddy,
    Dave

    Best of luck when you're able to get back in the fields, beans are done here, just waiting for the corn to come off.

    Congratulations on a great group of finds.

    You know this site better than anyone and may already know the answer, but do you think the original "horizontal" road in the old map could have been in a different location than where it is now?

    The only reason I ask is because of the slight "bend/stream" that appears in the upper left of the map seems to be evident in the satellite image as well. If they are the same then it looks like the modern road is situated too close to the "bend/stream?

    I've included your two images with arrows that hopefully will show what I'm talking about. (Hope it is ok to mark up your images with arrows.)
    This might help narrow down your search areas for other home sites on this permission. (This is another one of those times I wish I knew how to do overlays.)

    This is an interesting theory Pete, I never thought of that before?
    I did hunt the site in the top right-hand corner of the map just below where you indicated the red 'X'.

    This structure turned out only to be a barn, so I'm fairly certain the road wasn't located further south.
    As I'm sure you know, streams change their courses pretty regularly, at least they do in my area.

    I'll post a pic of the upper right corner of the map below, along with a pic of the site where I found the finds in this post when I first investigated it last winter.

    I just don't think I've found the site I've indicated in red yet, I think I need to look on higher ground and a little further north.
    Thanks again for your help, that's very considerate of you.

    Thanks for your post Mark.
    In all honesty, being able to prove my research by actually finding the site is a real rush.

    Take care,
