    Honest to god I think it's a grave marker. From the camera angle & weed height I'd guess about 3' or 4' high maybe.
    I know it's here, just need a bigger coil!

    I think I know what my last words will be....

    boogeyman, you may be right, sure not much to work with, some of my thoughts could be that when this country was settled this may have been a Platt Map, solid lines generally indicate property lines, or roads, several things that could indicate distance including height what you expect to find, perhaps the square boxes that's connected maybe square leagues and with a hash mark 1/2 league. There two things that a person must have to follow a map Distance and Direction. Is this in Tenn or Ky. There's several clues that could help, upside down V with dot. what does the sides and backside look like

    Would a couple glasses of stout and mild help any, just kidding, It sure looks to be something connected with surveyor and Church property, my thoughts are you are looking at a map of Church / Government property, I would start with the 4 directions and Google Earth, If the boxes are property indicator's each one could = 2.5 miles. I would start by going East first then North / South Looks like may be 25 miles wide ( kinda interesting that its similar to the Township method that they may have used in the U.S. ) It seems that there no information on the back side and looking Toward the East then to the Left and to the Right seems to be Three directions followed, Looks to be the 1800,s which It may belong to the Church, the marker you show may be on the South property line, it looks to the East then the two directions left would be North and South, All of the corners that I have found seem to be in the South East corner that had Information on them.

    He may be doing the maps of the area, locating sources and such for the area and its summer time there also, 4 /6 months will make a lot of difference. I had information on Old Spanish and Portugal measurements, at one time. If you will help perhaps some of the folks here may find it useful as far as distance markers, most of my stuff has been pertaining to the track of land set aside for settlers when they arrived here from Spain, most of the markers pertain those simply because there's more of them, then I started messing with trail markers and some on the Royal trail markers ( Lost Horse found some that's interesting,) she's well versed and has really been around, I make a lot of noise when I'm out and about. I don't know what her range is and I'm pretty sure that when she's about she's probably packin, Anyone interesting looking up" Old Spanish and Portugal Measurement " and posting them. Thanks

    Pocket notebooks are cheap, so are pencils. Pencils = follow the 1 to use 3 to lose rule. Leave the ink pens home unless you like pocket stains. Take a pic make a note pic note. When you get home use a program like EXIF Pilot (freeware) to add your notes in the EXIF data. Scan the pages of your notebook and save em to a CD or DVD.

    Thought everyone knew this grief saver technique? Us oldsters that got no recall after the Monday morning brain farts.
