Rock is near a small branch of creek. In a area settled by Europeans since the 1630s. On the other side of the tree holding the rock is this mound.
Help me figure this out!!

Reminds me of a natural process where organic matter decays and leaves an imprint of pretty patterns on a stone?s surface.

I should have mentioned I dug next to the tree and found piles upon piles of oyster shells about a foot deep.

Can you do a "rubbing" with something like dark chalk or art charcole over a relatively thin paper played over the rock surface, you may get a better idea of what you want to identify as far as human made marks.
