riverratspaz(09LA)April 12, 2006

Well im finally posting some pics so you all can see what i have been talking about. Remember i was finding sidewalks, pots, teacups, ETC while we were doing some dirt work?

Well you all are in for a treat, here are some pics from me digging and the pot i found, also something i dug up, just to see what might have been on the property to contribute to all these finds.

Here goes Gerard

What great treasures you are finding! I hope you can use these great finds within your garden. What is the picture of the building - I can't enlarge it.

Hmmm, all I've found is marbles, and a big patch of sand (our neighborhood was a golf course 75 years ago - I guess I bought one of the old sand traps). I saved the marbles (to make up for the ones I've lost while taking care of my family).

The photo is of an old sugar Mill, La Hermitage Sugar House.
This thing was massive, and there was a small line of houses also look here
If you want to look into the family search under Marius Pons Bringier
The pot i found while digging, some of you have to deal with rocks, and such, look what i find when i dig? I found some cups the other day, all broken, a 1929 penny, some ROME coin (havent IDed) a tax token, perfume bottle (in tack) baby doll leg(ceramic) spoons knives ETC, still looking and digging, supposidly it is rumored during the civil war, a slave very close to the family (family was creole) tore through the big house LA Hermitage(louisiana) and picked up all the jewelry, silver, and FINE items buried them in a trunk near the mill......AHHHHHHHHHHH WHERES THAT DANG TRUNK!!!!?????

Check out these other pics i found of the whole place!!!

I love history and what great things you are uncovering. Beats my rocks and a Texaco sign.
