Good hunting!

>Dear List,
>A few people on here already know, But on 4-9-2011 I found my 1st meteorite here
>in Butler county Ohio.(very oriented, thumb printed)? On the 11th I had a job
>interview and got hired on the spot after being laid off for some time.(Talk
>about finding your lucky star)
>Then on 4-16-2011, I find a broken fragment of a second chondrite on the same
>farm, which is sitting on a glacier morian.
>Both of these are so different, But they are chondrites.? In the past month I
>find 5 other stones that look like they could be Achondrites, (will post later)
>I have no interest in selling meteorites, I think these should go to our local
>Geology museum which has a cool meteorite display.
>6 yeras I was on a mission to find a meteorite, I think now it is complete. I
>found these out side the small town where I grew - up
>These would be the 1st chondrites found in Butler county Ohio. The only other
>meteorite found here is the Fairfeld meteorite (iron)
>If all the other suspect stones turn out to be meteorites also, then a few miles
>north of ?where the last glacier ended in ohio, Indiana
>and Illinoise is where meteorite hunters should be looking. I think the
>sandy-gravel soil drains water quickly, and meteorites may be perserved longer
>then people think.
>Also I have found 40+ artifacts since april, this farm I had found artifacts 25
>years ago. will post them also. The soil is only 8-10 deep on the glacial
>morian, 5 paleo points have found here, I found 3 of them, Most of the artifacts
>are Adena Mound builder material.
>But here is the albums of the two meteorites.
