Last find before pinpointer broke: milk thermometer?

075130A9-C7F8-4CDA-9969-7AC69A4D2734.jpeg 5703537D-E728-48DA-B142-A2F3FA98FCE4.jpeg 67B93E75-B048-4101-86DB-8F5F63F77AC2.jpeg

So I pulled this brass thermometer plate from my front yard just now and was surprised to see that it goes from -30 to 270 degrees. That’s quite a spectrum! But then I noticed the etchings on the temps: 32 Freezing; 62 churning; 86 for cheese; 150 scalding; and 212 water boiling.

The top on the plate reads: “Successor to John Kendall: Chatham N.Y.”

I couldn’t find anything about him online so it appears it’s just the owner’s name? Any thoughts?
