I found these buttons, not in one trip but a few, at the site of the Oakwood town site just east of lake oakwoos east lake. The town was there frok 1872 until 1895. There is just a historical marker there now and farmers fields.

I believe they were there as there were a bunch of men working on the railroad in the early 1980s. I know that there was Chinese workers too as I found a couple of Chinese coins there also.
Do you mean 1880's?
