> 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.
