Feet
No. 1: Hardpan drift .................8 to 10
No. 2: Flagging.........................4 to 5
No. 3: Heavy stond...................7 to 8
No. 4: Shale and thin stone (seen)...1

Here is a close up of the property owned by Israel E. Buck just north of Fulton, OH in 1857. This property is owned by David W. Mosher in 1871, and has a quarrie on it.

Here's a similar view of an 1871 map, showing David W. Mosher (Israel E. Buck's brother in-law) owning the property.

Here's Google maps view of the property today.
