So many finds!!!

I will do a quick find post! Doing all this work, means one will uncover a bunch of stuff! The first big find was while attempting to move some Daylilly's over into the privacy garden we started.


These weren't that old and were right below the surface. Before this I opted to not dig for bottles until we were in the parsonage and out of the tent...It didn't work out that way....

 

About 20 feet down from where the first find was these were discovered and the same concept. I stuck the shovel in, to get a hole going for some Daylillys and hit glass. Attempting to get to dirt, brought all this to the surface...


Soon my hole started getting deeper and wider...



The next day, I brought this up! A cap gun and some sterling silver was found. The hole got really muddy and I have abandoned it for a bit...but...I am still finding stuff!!



Going into the crawl space, to remove more vines and dig for the water/sewer line uncovered all this! I grabbed a probe and probed around. That is when this stuff started surfacing. That is a 1860's Hemingray Jar.



This 1800's Pickle Jar by Dominick O. Cunningham was the last piece pulled out of the crawl space. Who knows what else is in the yard...
