Hereís a couple from Palo Pinto county. I thought the sandstone ball was pretty neat. Thanks in advance for any info on these.

GarGuy 06-28-2021 08:37 PM

The ball is cool. I have a couple like it. The point is worn slap out. Too far gone for a definite id.

Thanks GarGuy. I alway appreciate the fact those exhausted points have seen a lot of use and would love to know the stories they could tell, but Iíd sure like to have seen it before it was whittled down.

Thanks. The crazy thing is, it was in some plowed ground and I almost didnít pick it up. My first though it was a mud ball formed by the plow somehow.

Trapper, I don't know what part of Palo Pinto county you're in but check out Village Bend on the Brazos. Fascinating history of Indian and Paleoindian occupation in that big bend west of Mineral Wells. I found some good points and a several likely gravesites on a ranch near there.

Quarterback I know the villagebend are of the brazos well. I grew up trot lining yellow cat in and just below the bend, with my grandad. Worked on a ranch just above the bend and across the river from it in high school. We would have to cross the river horseback and retrieve the ranch cattle that crossed when the river was down. I found a beautiful little bird point on the ranch I was working for. I probably could have found pile of artifacts, but I was more interested in cowboying and chasing split tails. My family came to Palo Pinto county after the civil war and settled on the river several miles north of villagebend at oaks crossing. Any links to the Indians @ villagebend would be very much appreciated.

Not sure on that one

BoneCollector31 07-05-2021 03:41 PM

I work with an archaeologist who specializes in lithic. I could ask him what he thinks.

Have you compared the last picture with a Zephyr?

I usually consider zephyr to be a broader stemmed point . It's possible though. Hoxie is usually stem ground and the I'm sure I can see that on the first two. Not sure if last one is ground .

Some of that has an Africa look. Odd uniface strikes.

Middle archaic. Maybe marshall.

Zmaxhunter 07-08-2021 12:10 AM

All of those are my own personal finds. All from Ottawa county..i have more if i can find them.
Some are from the Minneapolis 140T5 site.
Just 2m south of town was a large Indian village, 26 or more lodges.
Our museum has a lot of very nice artifacts.
Pipe Creek is another area, 8m ne of town with lots of archealogical sites.
Just a couple of yrs ago... a flood washed out an area leaving exposed footprints from long ago.
The old farming ways.. with a plow used to really bring up the artifacts.. with no till farming.. its much more difficult.
One field i used to walk is now alfalfa.. so its pointless.
The fabled Etzanoa was identified a few yrs ago.
