This field book contains notes on the paleontological specimen and geology in the South, Midwest, and Southwest United States taken between 1931 and 1955, although not continuously. Cooper describes stratigraphy, often providing color and consistency of shale in which fossils are found. Examples of fossils noted include cephalopoda, trilobites and brachiopoda genera streptorhynchus, pionodema, mimella, and rafinesquina. Other fossil specimen are noted as well. Locations Cooper visits include localities in Virginia, Texas, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Virginia, Georgia, Alabama, Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Kansas, Quebec, and New Mexico. Index of localities accompanies field notes. Also includes notes from Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University. Some coordinates are included. Page numbers for these field notes are 0001-0858.

Travelled all day. June 2 About 1 mi. S. of P. on E side of ^[[P. Highgate Sprs.]] road is Strites Pond - Lower 50' reticulated Dolomite. Underlying Rock River formation, unfossiliferous on west side of main road. Wallace Creek formation - [[strikethrough]] 1/3 [[/strikethrough]] 1/2 mile S of P. and on St. Armand road. Strites Pond at east and N side of road. Wallace Creek on N side of road about 30 yds. from road. Contact of Wallace Creek & Strites Pond unconformable. W.C. very fossiliferous at base. Upper Wallace Creek Dolomitic toward Morgan Corners formation overlying W.C. 1/3 mile E of Phillipsburg are infaulted blocks (slices) of Wallace Creek in Morgan Corners formation. Very fossiliferous containing many "Syntrophinella". This slice (or slices) are from the upper part of the Wallace Creek probably. There is no proof of this as these rocks have not been seen in the main mass of the Wallace Creek. The Chief block in the W.C. blocks is a [[underlined]] Syntrophinella [[/underlined]] like shell. The shell & sciatix suggest Canadian. There are also [[underlined]] Polytoechia-[[/underlined]] like shells. [[image - drawing of shell]]

From Montmagny to Matapedia Just at the [[strikethrough]] Ci [[/strikethrough]] village limits of Val Brillant I stopped to collect from the Val Brillant sandstone, a hard quartzitic rock. From loose blocks excellent [[underlined]] Pentameroides [[/underlined]] were obtained. June 6 1.2 miles east of Dawsonville, new road cuts in very hard heavy bedded massive calcaneous sandstone. Dipping steeply to NE. Conchidium very abundant, Atrypa, Stromatopora, corals. May be Crickmay's St. Leon formation June 7. Spent most of day collecting from the La Vieille at Quinn's Point, 3 miles East of Jacquet River. Fossils are not abundant and are hard to get. It rained in spurts most of the day and was very cold and windy.
[[stamped]] 0003 [[/stamped]] [[encircled]] 4 [[/encircled]] June 8. Snow and rain all morning. In afternoon went to Black Rock and collected for about 2 hours. Was unable to find bed with complete small [[underlined]] Stucklandias [[/underlined]] although I saw many poor separate valves. I believe that the beds at Black Point are not [[underlined]] La Vieille [[/underlined]] but I dont know where they go in the section. Perhaps they are uppermost Clemville. Lithologically the beds are not unlike those of the La Vieille being knobbly, there is an evident lack of corals. + Stromatopores as compared with the Quinn Point exposures. June 9. Rain most of day - went to Dalhousie with Dr. Smith. Collected about 5 hours. [[underlined]] Stewarti [[/underlined]] bed is mostly of soft ash. Shells abundant collected in beds at brook which were quite bare. Beds 8 & 9 I think are inseparable. June 10. Rain all day - prospects of clearing not good. Packed one box.
[[stamped]] 0004 [[/stamped]] June 11 21 paces towards cape Bon Ami from the "stewarti bed are about 10 or 15 ' (horizontal) of hard sandy sh ss. and ash beds which I shall call bed 14 These are exposed at low tide only. Collected fossils all day - Good day. June 12 Sunday - returned to Dalhousie chiefly to take notes and collect from beds exposed at low tide only. Bed 7 is in contact with the Barberie andesites which are amygdaloidal in the upper part. Bed 7 is hard arenaceous limestone containing many corals. [[^left margin]] Dip on bed 7 is 52[[degree symbol]] NNE [[/left margin]] The lower contact is very irregular and the lowest bed is a hard ls. 1 - 2' thick. Bed 7 is 5 to 7' thick. To my mind the fauna of bed 7 is essentially the same as that of 8 - 10, except there are more corals in 7. Bed 8 - sandy sh, ashy, bluish gray weathering brownish on surfaces, said to be 20'. I see no definite separation from bed 9. faunally or lithologically. Has clams like bed 9. Bed 9 is the one from which most of the loose & good fossils come. The brook cuts them about the lower third of the bed.

The bed is crowded with R. stewarti & S. [[concinnus?]]. For 25 paces S W on the beach from this bed (toward brook) R. stewarti occurs (this I call R. stewarti zone.) From contact of bed 7 and Barberie Dacite it is 97 paces on or about 243'. According to the book (Howard) there are 180' between the hard ls & the contact. I fail to see the usefulness of beds listed by Howard as it is nearly impossible to identify them. I saw no R. stewarti in the bed 11.but they were abundant in beds 12 sub 2 [[?]]-15.

[[preprinted]] 0007 [[/preprinted]] June 19 Collected Clemville at Clemville. Most soft crumbly arenaceous sh. and harder ss. bands. Fossils common but hard to get. Port Daniel, small village whose main industry is fishing. Some farming done by inhabitants, several sawmills in town. General appearance is poor, most of people are poor. One lobster canning factory. One large new hotel. One hotel defunct (Le Grand's) and Hotel Port Daniel closed up. The village consists essentially of 3 parts, Port Daniel West, Port D. center and Port Daniel East or the main portion of the village. Port Daniel River forms a Barrachois at P.D. East, R.R. and village located on the bar, covered bridge over tickle. Same for Little Port Daniel River at Port D. center P.D. is surrounded by low ridge-like hills. The West Pt. limestone is one of the main ridge or hill formers. This is shown at Pt. L'Enfers where there is a ls. quarry, the ridge running N from the Point. From West Point to Indian Point the ridge and cliffs are held up mainly by West Pt. ls. The Gascones commonly form the low ground being arenaceous shores and arenaceous ls. This rims the bay at Port Daniel West and also forms the low ground at Chouinard Brook & Anse aux Gascons.
[[printed]] 0008 [[/preprinted]] At Anse à la Barbe low cliffs rim the shore which are formed of the Upper Gascons but inland from these is a ridge, the backbone of which is West Point Limestone. The La Vieille makes high ground from Port Daniel (St George Church) to the north, and in the vicinity of Clemville. Population of Port Daniel 1776, founded 1855. Fishing, ls. quarrying, agriculture, a little lumber. New Richmond - Pop. 2,534, founder 1831. Mostly farming & lumbering. [[?Percé]] Parish founded in 1854 - Fishing & agriculture, Butter factory, cod liver oil plant, lumber for local consumption.
[[printed]]0009 Percé June 21 - Arrived at about 11 A.M. lunched and went immediately to collect from the Cap Blanc Formation in the south flank of Mont Joli. Trilobites are still plentiful in the band that carries them but are difficult to get at. June 22 - Rain + fog - Went behind Ste. Anne to the amphitheatre, locs. 5, 5a and collected. Collecting good in the thin Is. bands. Rock mostly a soft rotten shole containing innumerable items bedded Is. In places alternation of Is. + sh. frequent, others no lime and in still others argillaceous Is abounds, but nowhere is it just puce Is. Collected at F, on Priests road. [[Blucks?]] are difficult to find along the road. June 23 - Spent 2 hours of morning at south flank of Mt. Joli for more trilobites. They are now very difficult to secure. Spent afternoon at F6 + F7. Former now has very few good fossils. F7 is no longer any good. June 24 - Rain all morning
[[printed]] 0010 Daniel J Cunning + Thomas Goult collected on the St. John River. Text book on minerology Starfish ESE of Haldimand Head in a new scallop bed. Get Mr. Richmond a lens. [[Sunday]] July 17 arrived at Batavia noon July 18 Tile factory - Stream running NE near road along side of tile factory is not White Creek but a branch of it. In front of the house (first S. of tile factory) on SW side of road the [[Lichenoc?]] is exposed in the gutter and a little to the NW the P.Point is exposed.

Just north of west bridgehead at junction of Tenn, 13 and 50 shales rotted down to clay contain corals and bryozoa, undoubtedly belonging to the Bryozoan zone of the Lobelville. The Conchidrium collected at Lobelville belong high in the coral zone. At 1 p.m. it started to rain in ernest and I went home. Sept. 25 - In morning packed three kegs and then took them to Hohnenwold where I shipped them to the musuem. In afternoon went back to Beardstown along river level and about 1/4 mile N of bridge found [[/underline]]Rhipidium knappi [[/end underline]] ?? in a thin zone. Below it occurred [[/underline]] U. stricklandi, Gypidula, W. Saffordi [[/end underline]]and a few other brachiopods which suggest the Bob. I saw no beds that suggested Beech River. Left Beardstown and went to mouth of Jack Branch. No corals occur there but are abundant about 0.2 mile upstream. Visited small quarry (about 30') 0.7 mile east of junction of Tenn 13 and 20 on N side of latter. Quarry is mainly heavy bedded ls., light blue gray in color. Near top is a
[[encircled]] 12 [[/encircled]] [[stamped]] 0044 [[/stamped]] [[in left margin]] 3.68 shaly zone about 3' thick containing brachiopods suggesting the Bob. As the Bob red zone is exposed on a small branch above the mull. I imagine this quarry is in Decatur limestone. I am wondering if, Lobelville, Decatur and Bob, are one and same thing having lateral shaly facies and coral facies [[left margin]] 133 [[/left margin]] Sept. 26- Bluff at Mousetail [[left margin]] 0.95 [[/left margin]] [[left margin]] [[image - geologic sketch of 5 layers.

Limestone beds up to a foot thick from occasional ledges. At 55' comes heavy-bedded gray ls. C. - About 25' of massive limestone forming a bench. This is probably Basslers Eucalyptaerinus zone. D- purplish shaly weathering limestone alternating with greenish shaly limestone and with harder layers that form ledges. 14'-15'. Most of corals seen weathered and lying on slopes were derived from this layer. Found Rhipidium here also E- Hard massive limestone to top of hill and forming a flat top.

Top of hill goes about 20' above top of Decatur making hill about 175' above present river level. The section given here was taken mainly at the point jutting into the river on the north side of a small creek that comes into the river. South of this creek the section is somewhat different. The so-called [[underline]] Uncinulus [[/underline]] bed is either more weathered or not so thick as to the north. My mention of U. stricklandi in Beech R. may bear this out. Found Conchidium in red-green shaly zone same as at [[sketch of layers in left margin]] ------------| Linden ? | G ------------| 60 +/- | F ------------| 15' +/- | E ------------| 8' | D ------------| 16' | C ------------| 5 - 15' | B Uncinulus ? | ------------| 30 - 42' | A | 13.
[[encircled]] 14 [[encircled]] [[stamped]] 0046 [[/stamped]] mousetail. This section seems to me to be about the same as the Moustail one, a little thicker because of the complete section of the Decatur and more of the shaly zone with the red beds. Saw corals in lower Decatur which may indicate presence of the coral zone. Sept. 27 - by side of road opposite house, 1 1/4 miles (airline) SSE of Pine View, up Wilsdorf Branch, about 0.7 mile S of Toms Creek, Perry County, are 3 - 4 feet of shale yielding many corals like those exposed on Jack Branch. 1/4 mile NE of bridge over Coon Creek on Tenn. 100 is good exposure of brachiopod bed sandwiched between two layers of heavy - bedded ls. The shale bed with brachs is about 2' thick. This same brachiopod bed seen in Qy on Hy 20. The brachiopod bed in the Qy on Tenn. Hy. 20 is about 20' below the Hardin SS and the SS lies in place about 8' above the top of the Qy. There must be either much erosion at the top of the Silurian or unsuspected facies changes. Intersection of Coon Creek and Hy. 100 is probably Foerste's locality for Conchidium lindenensis. I hand - leveled down from Hardin ss. about 70 feet but rock is covered at level of Conchidium. Possibly if there were a ford at the Creek in Foerste's more rock was showing then. Sept. 28 - Peelers Pond a great spring issuing from the high bluff. Rock for about 3' at Spring is red but above that is mostly greenish or bluish. According to a man met on [[left margin]] 14. [[/left margin]]

The bluff was blasted to get the fill for road. About 10' above the road is a 3' shaly bed containing [[underlined]] Strombodes [[/underlined]]. 1/4 mile south of the pond (where spring issues) on east side of the road scraping of bank has revealed a shaly coral & bryozoan bed which is between the Strombodes bed and the red bed at the base of the [[left margin]] 3.30 [[/left margin]] sequences. The spring is located about 600 paces south of Peelers Hollow. South side of crossing of Cane Creek by Tenn. Hy. 50 and for 0.1 mile upstream are 15' of coral beds at base of section. Over these are some 38' of heavy-bedded limestone and over this is the Linden with [[underlined]] Camarocrinus [[/underlined]]. Sept. 29 - Visited Pegram on Mill [[left margin]] 12.75 [[/left margin]] Creek. Spent most of day there. Good section of Silurian but poor in fossils along the road (Tenn.13) beside Buffalo River about 1 mile NW of Flatwoods. The whole section appeared to be most Beech River. In late afternoon stopped to see Natural Bridge on way to Waynsboro. [[left margin]] 0.40 [[/left margin]] Sept. 30 - Spent day at Clifton and vicinity. In morning went ENE of town to point where road bend ESE. Along the river bank at this point the Fernvale formation is well exposed and can be followed NE along the river to a conspicuous bluff a few tenth of a mile from the bend in the road. At the bluff the rock has been quarried or at any rate is fresh. The shaly part of the Fernvale is bright greenish [[left margin]] 15 [[/left margin]]
[[encircled]] 16 [[/encircled]] [[stamped]] 0048 [[/stamped]] blue. Fossils occurred about one foot below the top. The thin Brassfield is exposed well along the shore here. This is followed by the red Osgood shaly limestone and the top of the bluff by the pinkish Laurel ls. After seeing this section walked west from old Dement Mill along the bank of the river. The section is covered where Mud Branch enters the river but a short distance west the top of the Laurel appears and scattered blocks of Waldron with [[underline]] Plectambonites tennesseensis, Stephanocrinus [[/underline]] and other fossils. Then follows the Laurel and the Dixon and finally the Beech River forming most of the bluff west of Clifton. This is the west limb of an anticline the center or axis of which is near the point where the power line crosses the river. Going east of the power line the Hermitage forms the bank for a long distance, nearly to the hotel. This is overlain by Arnhein and the Fernvale which is exposed below the hotel and at the Ferry landing. Farther east the Silurian sequence is repeated on the east limb of the anticline Made a good collection of inarticulate brachiopods from the Hermitage. Oct. 1 - Martins Mills in morning. Hill just south of the cluster of houses exposes an excellent section with Beech River at base and Bob with [[left margin]] 1.83 [[/left margin]] Gant ls. on top. Gant limestone comes to road level perhaps a half mile S of the mills. Hillside N-NE of mills showed Beech River at base and Hardin about middle of hill. Forest's section is undoubtedly up the small stream, although he speaks of being 57' above the road. [[left margin]] 16 [[/left margin]]
[[encircled]] 17 [[/encircled]] [[stamped]] 0049 [[/stamped]] Good section of Beech River with fossils in hill a mile north of the mills. collected here. Several small crinoids are common with an occasional Troostoesius[[guess]] Just SW of schoolhouse one mile west of Houston the rocks have been blasted out for the road. Just NE of the school is about 10 feet of massive limestone abounding in brachiopods, which is overlain by the Hardin. The fill of blasted material unfortunately has either been picked or is not very fossiliferous. Oct. 2 - Went up to Short Creek north of Lego school. Thought it hopeless to try and find Foerste's locality for Conchidium. Went up old road north of Short Creek and found a glade showing about lower 5' of Beech River and its contact with the Dixon. The whitish clay at base of Beech River was well exposed but had few fossils. Above Beech River exposures are poor but upper 35' of Silurian is exposed below the Hardin. It is massive heavy, bedded xline ls. Visited Misers locality 121 opposite Lego. This was exactly like the one above. Fossils can be cracked out of the xline ls. Went 1/2 mile N of Whiteoak School corners to Miser Conchidium ledge. Opposite first house on West side of road just 1/2 mile north of the corners at the school an old road goes east into the woods. This road goes over rotten xline ls and shaley beds abounding in corals and bryozoa. About 100 yards from auto road old road branches, one branch going to the NE (left) up the hill. This branch of the road crosses the Conchidium ledge which may be followed to the NW around the hill for some distance. I make [[margin]] 17 [[/margin]]

Above the Conchidium corals are also fairly common and an occasional coral may be found with Conchidium. I think the Conchidium belongs with the corals. The few brachiopods present are like Lobelville or Bob types. Found on U. tennesseensis. I have a suspicion that Bob = Lobelville.. Oct. 3 - Beside the road on the north side of the entrance to the Sewell Spring and about road level a layer of earthy, yellow-weathering ls. contains large Conchidium. Went up hill to north of Sewell (the white) house. At base of hill is shaly material with corals, but nearly entire remainder of section is crystalline ls. right up to the Hardin ss. After lunch Mr. Sewell took me to a glade along an old road about 1/2 mile SSW of the Sewell house. Corals are exactly like those under Conchidium ledge. [[left margin]] 1.66 [[/left margin]] Conchidium was present here but rare. At this place shale of Beechwood type is interbedded with Xline ls.

Here the WPA is building an armory and a great deal of chert from the upper part has been thrown out. We made a large collection. Oct. 8 - First stop was at bridge over Stones River about one mile southwest of Lascassas on Tenn. 96. Here Murphreesboro lies in stream bed. Pierce comes over it on east side bridge and the Ridley overlies the Pierce. We collected Murphreesboro and Pierce. [[left margin]] 1.45 [[/left margin]] Next visit was to old Pierce Mill, 1/2 mile S of Walter Hill on Tenn. 10. Here is a small exposure near power plant of thin ls. with bryozoans. Much of the material is without fossils and is quite vaughanitic in character. Visited Ridley on N side of road crossing Stones River a mile due east (airline) of Jefferson. Here near top of exposed sequences we found [[underlined]] protorhyncha. [[/underlined]] Visited Nice's Mill where Pierce is well exposed. Here [[underlined]] protorhyncha [[/underlined]] occurs in the bryozoan beds near top. Over the Pierce we found Ridley Rhynchotrema in soil. Oct. 9. - Spent morning at Marshalls Knobs on Ridley.

[[stamped]] 0055 [[/stamped]] Sept. 29, 1940 Pegram on Mill Creek, N of Topsy, Tennessee. TVA Topsy [[square symbol]] Point out in paper if any of Pegram is really Onondaga there must have been big interval between Lower Onondaga (Camden) and Upper Onondaga [[underlined]] Sp. acuminatus [[/underlined]] zone to have produced the Camden and Clear Creek Cherts, which generally are chert wherever known. The Pegram on Buffalo River in bluff on west side of mouth of Mill Creek, north of Topsy is about 6' thick of hard light to dark gray crystalline limestone, irregularly bedded in layers from one to two inches up to nearly a foot. Contains many styliolites. Basal layer in bottom few inches contains concretions and a green mineral probably glauconite. Fossils are scarce throughout. Saw nothing while collecting to indicate anything of Onondaga age. In basal bed occurs tavosites turbinatus suggestive of Beechwood with a large wrinkled Schuchertella. In middle of formation saw possible Vitulina (or dorsals of Cyrtina). Near top Cypricardinia is common. All fossils seen suggest a Hamilton age for whole layer rather than any Onondaga. Sp. gregarius is only real Onondaga fossil in Pegram reported by Peoples. It could be a Delaware form. In paper show Nucleocrinus vernenili also of Hamilton type. [[underlined]] Pegram may all be Hamilton. [[/underlined]] After examining my specimens

Sandy zone contains crescent shaped plicated oysters, small indistil[[guess]] and occasional echinoids. Brachs range for 20 feet above "sandy" bed and 5'? feet below it making a total range of feet. Sandy zone well displayed in long sloping north and of north hill where limestone descends below the plain. Brachs uncommon at north end of hill. Brachs are most numerous at the saddle between the north hill and the one next south
[[stamped]] 0119 [[/stamped]] which exposes higher beds except along the NE face where some brachiopods may be found. At the saddle the brachs range for about 15 - 20' vertically.

Louiville overlies the O Hosee at this place. From here we went to a narrow bend of the road east of Acuff to collect from high O Hosee. Here we got many small dalmanellids Then we collected many Hespervthis from lower Louisville at Little Barren church. Then followed this belt westward to [[strikethrough]]Sharps[[/strikethrough]] Sharps Chapel. At the end of the Sharps Chapel road a full section can be seen from Knox, Murfreesboro, Mosheim and Lowville. Ottosee is absent from this belt. We found Hesperornis low in the Lowville of this section.

When exposed to weather the rock crumbles to small cobbles which contain the fossils when present. Excellent exposures occur along Red Bud Road where upper 10' - 20 ' [[left margin]] 527 [[/left margin]] are exposed. Here occur Bimuria, Atelelosoma, cl sophragma and Christiania. This is essentially the same as the top of the Lenior at Friendsville. Near mouth of Bennett Creek Lenoir is exposed with Bimuria, Atelelasma, Laticura and Christiania. On Farm road (Tenn. 33A), 1.4 miles S of Farm bridge collected from a rotten zone in Tellico. Fossils suggested Whitesburg or Holston species: Multicostella and Cyrtonotella.

[[stamped]] 0587 [[/stamped]] 19 May 15 Shipped 4 kegs from Morristown then went to a point about 2 miles SW of Bulls Gap to see Lenoir, Whitesburg and Athens. Lenoir is cobbly limestone breaking down to glady exposures where frost can get at it. Fossils are scarce. Machurites occurs not far from the bottom. Other fossils seen [[left margin]] 539 [[/left margin]] were Rhynchocansara, Rafinesquina, Hesperorthis, Valcourea and a flat sponge. Lenoir is succeeded abruptly by Whitesburg, a thin-bedded, dark fine-grained to smooth limestone. This breaks down to slabs and pieces. The exposure is mainly of slopes strewn [[left margin]] 540 [[/left margin]] with the fragments. There are about 300 feet of this formation. Fossils are abundant in some of the layers. In afternoon saw the Athens east of Bulls Gap along a stream under the R R about 1/2 miles east of the R R Station. Here it was a limestone in beds up to 6" thick. Higher in the section the Athens is blue-gray calcareoarenaceous shale that weathers to a soft punky rock. Fossils are rare.
[[stamped]] 0588[[/stamped]] 20 Later went to a long railroad out in the Athens one mile south of Otes. Here the Athens is shale and thin bedded limestone. Fossils of a few kinds are common: Multicostella, Calliops, Homotelus, Lonchodomas, Lingula 3 sp. [[in margin]]541[[in margin]]

In afternoon drove up valley of War Gap Creek to Speers Ferry. The OHosee shale seemed to diminish in thickness. At Marcem Quarry [[left margin]] 556 [[/left margin]] 2 miles west of Gate City the quarry is in the Holston? At top of quarry on N side cherty limestones contain dinorthis, Rhynchocaniara, Sowerbyites and many bryozoa. Below this bed about 20' occurs a shaly layer with many bryozoa. These fossil beds are about 300' above the Knox. Above the fossil beds in the Holston ls? The Holston? is overlain by OHosse with Echinosphaerites. I think this OHosee may equal the yellow shale () that occurs above the third limestone and below the Moccasin at Eidson. If this be so the OHosee at Gate City is a higher bed than that at Eidson
[[stamped]] 0590 [[/stamped]] 22 and the Thorn Hill section The fauna of the cherty beds at Marcem suggests Raymond's Holston at Goodwin Ferry. May 17. Went from Bristol to Cumberland Gap. Went out US 58 421 to Clinchport then took Tennessee 70 from Clinchport to Pattonsville. Along this road is a beautiful exposure [[left margin]] 557 [[/left margin]] of Nolichucky with many trilobites. Saw fine section up Powell Mtn. We went south of Ewing on Tennesee 62 to see the Fenster along 4 mile Creek. We discovered Cambrian fossils in the sole of the thrust. The fenster shows clinton down to Maysville under the E and the lower Knox
[[stamped]] 591 [[/stamped]] 23 May 18 Cut just outside tunnel on SE side Cumberland Gap is an exposure of Brassfield consisting of greenish sandy shale, thin sandstones capped by about 4' sandy limestone.

In afternoon went of Little Sycamore Creek to collect from [[left margin]] 568 [[/left margin]] Lowville. About 20' above a thick marble bed occurs a 10' shaly zone with Mimella, Strophomena Multicostella, Fascifera and Sowerbyella. On US. 58, about 3 miles east of Cumberland Gap village the soil shows glades where upper Black River fossils can be collected Hesperorthis, Rhynchotrema, Sowerbyella, [[left margin]] 575a [[/left margin]] Dalmanella, Strophomena, Pionodema* * Pionodema in Harry Whittington Coll.
[[stamped]] 0592 [[/stamped]] 24 The beds carrying these shells underlie shales that contain ostracods, and Pholidops. May 19 In morning visited yellow branch about 5 miles SE of Rose Hill, Va. Here was an excellent display of Mosheim probably 2 or 300. feet of it. [[left margin]] 577a [[/left margin]] Collected Tetradium cillulosum about 30' below Mosheim and a [[left margin]] 577 [[/left margin]] number of brachiopods below that. Lenoir overlies the Mosheim and contains a few fossils, Lowville with one to two red beds overlies the Lenoir and is about 1000' thick. In afternoon collected lower Trenton along U.

[[stamped]] 0593 [[/stamped]] 25 May 20 Went from Cumberland Gap to Gate City and then northeast on Virginia 74. The idea was to find Frigates Hill locality of Raymond. The site of the old Post Office was found. About a mile east of this place we went across Mocassin Creek and searched for fossils in the shales overlying the [[left margin]] 582 [[/left margin]] [[left margin]] 582a [[/left margin]] "Holston". Fossils were not abundant six miles west of Fergates Hill P. O. and on the Hy is another locality that afforded fair collecting.

Knox is exposed near the office on the quarry grounds but Lenoir appears not far above it. The lower part of the quarry is in Lenoir and is followed by Holston. This Holston is overlaid by Whitesburg followed again by Holston faulted over. The Whitesburg above the Holston occur 3 layers of marble, lenses in the Whitesburg. These are followed by Athens shale. The second Holston mass seems to me to be a typical Paleozoic bioherm with fragmented bryozoa, cystids and crinoids all massed together. To me there seemed to be no fault but the second Holston marble was a reef in the Whitesburg. The beds overlying the reef lens out into the Whitesburg. After collecting at the quarry we studied Ottosee limestone north of Marion and collected Orthorhynchula near the top of the mountain above the Ottosee.
[[stamped]] 0595 [[/stamped]] 27 May 22. Spent all morning packing 8 kegs. In afternoon visited quarries in NE edge of Marion. Here 50' of Mosheim lies on [[margin]] 587 [[/margin]] the Knox and is overlain by 50' of Lenoir, nodular limestone which is shaley in the upper 5 - 10'. This shaley part contains brachiopods suggestive of the Upper Lenoir at Knoxville such as Bimuria and Isophragma. [[margin vertical]] Sowerbyites of lower OHosee must overlie this Lenoir. Note 10/17/43. [[/margin vertical]] Then we went 5 miles west of Marion to see Onondaga chest [[margin]]] 589 [[/margin]] overlying the Ordovician. May 23 Went from Marion northeastward to vicinity of Bland where we visited a small quarry in "Holston ls". This was a very pure crystalline limestone but fossils were not abundant. This quarry is said by Mr.Butts [[margin]] 590 [[/margin]] to be the McNutt Qy mentioned in Raymond and Willards' paper. After lunch in Bland we went down main road to SE and took first left turn to Grayson Farm. Here we [[margin]] 598-598a [[/margin]]
[[stamped]] 0596 [[/stamped]] saw Holston again like that at the McNutt Quarry. Above 28' it came thin-bedded gray granular limestone abounding [[left margin]] 598 [[/left margin]] in Trilobites. This is the Whitesburg limestone. Above the Whitesburg occurs smooth black limestones that weather to ash gray. These belong to [[left margin]] 598-a [[/left margin]] The Athens formation.

Here we collected from [[left margin]] 599 [[/left margin]] Lenoir. Cystonotella C, Panrorthus C, as small rafinesquinoid like that at Riceville, c. These beds were originally called Holston by E.OU. If not Lenoir they may be Whitesburg because Mr. Butts puts upper part of these in the Whitesburg. Lithologically the lower and upper parts are alike, The Lenoir & Whitesburg together are not over 25'. In afternoon met Bevan in Roanoke then went on to Lexington and visited Whistle

Just W of Strawberry Plains occur good sections of Holston, Sevier, etc. Left Abingdon about 8:00 AM and headed for Mosheim. Visited cut about 1 - 1 1/2 miles west of Mosheim on Southern RR. Here are about 60' of Mosheim resting directly on Knox dolomite. We saw no fossils or channels under the Mosheim. Cooper and Edmundson think this Mosheim has all the characters of the Virginia Mosheim. However we did not see any Tetradium in this formation. Machurites is fairly common in the Mosheim which may be

Here shaly limestones with cobbly small knots and sandy shale rest directly on dolomite. The lower dolomite of about 5' thick looks like Mosheim but is thinner bedded occurring in layers about 8 - 10" thick. We argued it was not Mosheim and that the Lenoir rests directly on dolomite. The basal Lenoir contains a small rhynchonellid in great abundance. Above this some 25' appeared Maclurites in abundance. The limestone contained many bryozoa and in some respects suggested the 45' at Mosheim but we saw no Maclurites above the Mosheim at that place. It is possible ever the lowest Lenoir = Valcour rather than Crown PT. Down the small stream Lenoir was seen showing several hundred feet of this formation to be present

Exposure not good and mostly of leached sandy shale of a bright yellow to yellow-brown color. Exposure at RR-highway crossing at 948 consisted of sandy - calcareous shale with calcareous nodules. [[underlined]] Lonchodomas [[/underlined]] is abundant. The nodes here suggested Whitesburg to me but the ls is not granular. Second section seen is 2 - 3 miles SE of Charleston Tenn in Henniger Bluff along Hiawasee River where river and highway come close together. Lenoir - exposed at west end of exposures and consists of nodular limestone with calcareous shaly to sandy partinge. We did not see the exact contact with the Knox and we saw no rhynchonellids at the base. The lower 30' - 40' of nodular limestone contained small Glyptorthis, Valcourea and Orthambonites together with numerous bryzoa. The uppermost 20' of Lenoir are quite different from the lower nodular beds in being irregularly bedded somewhat calcareous silty rock with many Chistiania. Athens - overlies Lenoir and consists in lower part calcareous shales weathering to ash gray and having a dark gray color. We saw [[underlined]] no [[/underlined]] black shale in the sequence. Lenticular layers and nodules occur but they are very poorly fossiliferous. They are
[[stamped] 0629 [[/stamped]] [[left margin]] 8 [[/left margin]] dark brown gray in color and with distinct grain. The very shaly part represents perhaps 1/3 of the total thickness below the Tellico. Above the thin-bedded shale the rock becomes sandier and heavy-bedded and near the top is a very fine-grained sandstone with fucoids. In about the middle of the upper 2/3 occurred nodules with Lonchodomas abundant and like the rock seen in the railroad cut. At the top of the Athens are nodular shaly and granular beds suggesting Ottosee. Tellico - Thick bed of calcarenytes and red as with much ferruginous material. Sevier - Thin-bedded sandstone and calcareous sands looking very much like Martinsburg. T - 8 - About 5 miles SE of Sweetwater on Tenn 68 and 1/2 mile SE of Gaines school is a glade slope in upper Athens. Lonchodomas is common but also a few brachiopods suggesting the upper Lenoir at Friendsville. Section one side SW of Gaines School on Sweetwater [[square symbol]] showes nodular ls beds interbedded with Yellow sandy shale that breaks into very small lumps. Here large Sowerbyites and Christiania are abundant. No Maclurites were seen in any of the Lenoir sequences seen on this day.

Came in on NW side of village and worked near white ^[[Friends]] church just in front of cemetery on NW corner of town. On road opposite church and in woods just N of church Knox dolomite occurs. Above a short covered interval comes a bed of red and green mottled limestone which Cooper thinks belongs to the red beds at the base of the Blackford. This is followed by another short covered interval, then comes Mosheim. Traced NE these two beds appear in contact at the very NE corner of Friendsville where 4 houses occur in a row and just NW of a school. At this part of town Girvanella beds & Maclurites were seen not far above the Mosheim. Following the Mosheim SW from the church in NW corner of town that limestone occurs on a slope just south of the church and is overlain by crystalline limestone. A loose piece of red limestone (Blackford) occurred below the Mosheim. Below the Mosheim and occupying the slope from the S edge of the cemetery to the stream occur reef limestones with Stromatocerium - like structures, numerous massive bryozoa and lime sand. In spots this has broken down and fossils are abundant. Ptychopleurella, Dactylogonia were common. The whole layout suggests the Valeour reef at Cooperville NY. This material seems definitely to be below the Blackford
[[stamped]] 0631 [[/stamped]] [[left margin]] 10 [[/left margin]] and above Knox. It may be a swollen reef on the flanks of which Mosheim occurs. Along the creek from the mill upstream shaly limestone with Christiania occurs. The Christiania is abundant in the soil on both sides of the creek. The Lenoir becomes more cobbly upward to the top where it is very cobbly. In the top occur many fossils Plestorthis and Multicostella plena occur about 75' below top. Large Opikina occurs at the top. Above the Lenoir is Holston marble, shaly near top with Multicostella (Check with mine from 8 mi. WNW of London). Above Holston is Tellico and above Tellico is yellow sandy shale containing some marble beds and a specimen of Campylerthis. According to BNC this is upper OHossee. The Campylosthis was a biconvex type like some lower in the OHosee. Cooper (BN.) suggests that the cobbly upper Lenoir may be equal to Larber OHosee (possibly his Ward Cove, possibly the lowest Echinosphaerites beds. The top Lenoir suggests the high Athens seen on the road SE of Sweetwater on Oct. 26. It looks as though the Lenoir completely replaces the Athens and the part replaced would be about the middle,

Cooper & Edmundson agree that Mosheim at Mosheims is not necessarily the same as the
[[stamped]] 0635 [[/stamped]] [[left margin]] 14 [[/left margin]] Mosheim - like beds at Philadelphia and Lenoir City. The beds at the two places do not look alike. At Philadelphia the Mosheim was not a continuous deposit but the Mosheim lithology was spotty appearing in earthy calcareous, shaly weathering beds. The presence of Maclurites links the type Mosheim to the lower Lenoir. Type Lenoir from what we have seen seems to consist of about 150' from top down as follows: Firm fine grained gray limestone with Maclurites and chert in the upper part. ------------ 75 - 100' Shaly limestone crumbling into small cobbles with Valcourea, Hesperorthis, Mimella, sponges and corals ------ 30' - 40' Dolomitic shaly weathering earthy rock with masses or layers of Mosheim - like rock and granular layers and masses with snails and Rostricellula --- 10' This is the type Lenoir and seems to be represented in Friendsville by "Mosheim", shaly beds with Valcourea and corals, firm, Athens like limestone becoming cherty at top. This entire sequence extends up to Christiania but does not include it. Check "Holston" from Jeff City are that Bridge collected at Mosheim level.

Above this is blocky chert zone with numerous Dinorthis holdeni, Lep[[?]]stia, Calliops. Followed by mealy red ss. The Dinorthis zone is also underlain by mealy red rock. Heiskel - NW of Heiskell the Knox is exposed about 1/2 mile along the road just S of the bend. Then follows blocky chert, red and yellow shale. Just before reaching the intersection dark gray limestones may be seen in the bed of a brook by the road. These are cherty and resemble the Strosburg of Va in lithology. They also contain numerous bryozoa. Above these and exposed along the main road at Heiskell are nodular shaly ls., yellow weathering that contain Strophomeria Tennesseensis. To the southeast a long section is visible. just under the school, cherty limestones appear. Between the school and the brook, platy limestones with some shaly limestones occur which contain snails, O'pekima and a few other fossils. Just about opposite the first house on the west side of the road and slight forward the school occur ledges with
[[stamped]] 0637 [[/stamped]] [[left margin]] 16 [[/left margin]] Cryptophragmus. Across the brook in the bluff occur thin-bedded limestones with shaly partings and abounding in Rosticellula and bryozoa. Opikifa[[guess]] is also present. Above the rhynchonellid beds occur Moccasin reds. Along next NW road to the NE the blocky chert, red, mealy rock, Lincolnshire-like limestone and OHosee lithology occur. Old Road extending NW for 1/2 mile and located 1/2 mile SW of the Fleanor Mill showed a wonderful section. The blocky chert occurs 245 paces NW of house and is overlain by red shaly rock. 132 paces SE from first stream & road crossing occur Oligorhynchia in a thin ls bed. Mimella is also present. This bed is located about 475 feet NW of the house. The Ologorhynchia bed in the red are layers of hard fine-grained sandstone, and calcareous shale, the latter with many Strophomena (suggesting measleri). In the sandstones occurred Dinorthis willardi and a possible Sowerbyites. Following these beds and on the south side of the small creek near the house occur the cherty, dark limestones with Bryoaoz. At the intersection of the old road and main NE - SW road and for 25 yards NW occur cobbly shale and limestone with Lower OHosee fossils.

One mile SW of Mayes Chapel on the Fountain city street on the north side of the dirt road and on the slopes down to the creek occur dark limestone interbedded with occasional layers of yellow calcareous shale. Dinorthis Willardi is abundant and occurs with a layer Camarella. On the flat on the SE side of the road Calcareous shale abounds in fossils: Sowerbyites, Campylorthis, Mimella, Oligorhynchiaand Dinorthis willardi. These fossils are the same as those seen in Raccoon Valley Liberty Hill, and just SW of Thorn Hill. They had been called lower OHosee but Ulrich thought them to be Strasburg. They seem to be a shaly equivalent of the Strasburg. The latter formation traced SW to Eidson was followed with ease but we lost it between Eidson and Thorn Hill. The probable explanation is that it changed to shale and has a different fauna in it. Overlying these shaly beds in Beaver Valley occurs dark cherty limestone abounding in Nidulites, this is B. N. Cooper's Ward Cove formation and clinches the Strasburg = Lincolnshire position of the so-called lower 0Horse beds = Thorn Hill fm,

SE of Whitesburg. Here are some rack at the base has somewhat the appearance of the Mosheim but the section is mostly crumbly modular ls with many Maclurites. Also present are large Rafinesquina, Valcourea, In the upper third the rock is somewhat brown weathering and has some sponges. The Whitesburg overlies the Lenoir and is a smooth dark gray or granular dark gray limestone abounding in trilobites. Ampyxina was seen at the base, also big Conotreta, Opikina, Near the top of the sequence the rock is very cobbly, breaking into small limps. In this condition it resembles the Chambersburg. Visited the RR cut at Otes but saw nothing new. Went on to Rogersville and from there to Thorn Hill. At base of section is a thick Mosheim which is overlain by Holston lithology. Where the bridge occurs at the bend, cobbly, shaly ls occurs with Cystids and Dinorthis willardi. We now believe this to belong to the Strasburg and that it is definitely not OHosee. Above this is a marble and then another shaly interval with receptasulites which Cooper believes is his lower OHosee. This is followed by a third marble and then corals of his Wardell formation appear.

At the bend of the road just before reaching the west end of the village occur Up. OHosee. Lower OHosee appears on the east side of the village along the highway about 3/4 mile. Here also occurred below the OHosee cherty ls. of the Lincolnshire. We returned to Thorn Hill and spent a short time at a cursory examination of the Evans Ferry section. At the base occurs a Mosheim lithology which is followed by red green mottled rock and this is succeeded by cherty limestone with Mimella and Dinorthis holdeni. This is followed by dark gray limestone with more scattered chert and big dinorthids. Above this just below the side road, occur cobbly shaly, yellow limestone with Strophomena mealeeri Dinorthis willardi and Multicostella (or Compulorthis). This horizon is not the OHosee but is the Strasburg as Ulrich contended. This is followed by a marble and then comes lower OHosee with Receptaculites. The Upper OHosee occurs by the large white house and consists of cobbly ls, and heavy beds of limestone with Camdaella, Hesper[[?]]this and Campulorthis.

Cooper claims the so-called Lenoir is actually Lincolnshire. The Holston is believed to be Ward Cove. On yellow Branch about 3 miles west of Meadow View and 500 feet downstream from the junction of Co. Hy. 745 and Va 80. The section is along Va. 80. Above the Beekmantown occurs coarse as followed by red sandy limestone. This limestone and the sandy limestone up to the road to the barn, perhaps 40' of limestone with Rostricellula Mimella. Above this are 8 - 10' of sandy dolomite then 20' of sheared ls. with many snails including Maclurites. On this is a band of dolomite after a covered interval. Then comes a vaughanite, sheared, but with many snails.
[[stamped]] 0650 [[/stamped]] [[left margin]] 29 [[/left margin]] The vanghanite is followed by dolomite and magnesian limestone. The upper part of the section is much sheared bright blue gray ls. This was called Lincolnshire by Cooper but he is not sure of it. The Mosheim may be 5 - Oaks. The lower beds from the Gastropod (Maclurites) zone down to the Beekmantown seems definitely to be Lenoir. The upper limestone contained no chert. Here the vanghanite seems to belong rather to the lower than to the 5 - Oaks beds & may be Lenoir. The Sowerbyella (small) seems to link the Lenoir at Porterfield to the Lincolnshire. It certainly would make it postchazy.
[[stamped]] 0651 [[/stamped]] 30 November 6 The Christiania beds at Athens & Riceville must be at base of Upper Lenoir (Christiania Zone) of Friendsville. We agree that the Upper Lenoir at Friendsville equals all the Athens at Charleston and Athens. In other words the Christiana beds above the Lenoir at Charleston plus the shale and nodular beds equals the Christiania zone at Friendsville. These two sequences are equal to the Whitesburg. The Strasburg may be equivalent to the few cherty [[?]] beds at the top of the lower Lenoir. The coral beds thus would be the top of the Lenoir.

Worked one mile east of Friendsville and made an effort to get a collection above the Maclurites bed. This rock is moderately cherty, the chert weathering out in small masses. Sandy chips also weather out. Fossils are very rare and show mostly in the form of tribolite fragments but recognizable specimens are very rare.. A few small brachiopods suggest the lower Athens which here has turned somewhat cherty & cobbly. In afternoon went into village & collected S of Friends Church and in the field SE of the church. Here Comerella longirostris is present above the Mosheim as well as below it.

Afternoon scouted for other exposures and found a long section NE of Fleanor Mill about a mile. Here above the reds and thin cobbly beds of the Oligorhynchia horizon granular cherty limestone produced large Nidulites. Thus this horizon proves to be the Ward Cove.

The Dinorthis looked like D. willardi. Overlying this comes cobbly ls. with Oligorhynchia and D. willardi & other fossils in abundance. On top of Oligorhynchia comes the Ward Cover. From Fountain City we went to Chesney and found some 50' of gray granular limestone overlying the Beekmantown and underlying Girvanella beds at the base of a thick marble which underlies the Oligorhynchia beds. From Luttrell we took Tenn. 61 to Tenn. 33 and looked at the Witten - Moccasin - Eggleston section about 5 mi. NE of Maynardville. Witten passes into Moccasin which is apparently the same as the Pionodema beds at Hagan.

After lunch saw Athens 3/4 mile [[encircled]] NE [[/encircled]] [[line pointing to entry SE]] of Mint. Here just above Knox are 75' of sandy shale with Christiania and other "Lenoir" fossils. Above this is a long sequence of Athens with graptolites. The Athens consists of silts and fine grained sands in lenses. Some of the layers are distinctly flaggy and the graptolites extend through a long thickness. Saw Tellico 1 mile N of old Kagley Church where Cyrtonotella Aerolichas and Orthamborites were seen.

Went up hill on S side road to see upper Lenoir. Lenoir is probably 150' thick. Above it comes about 200' of pink marble which is probably true Holston and is in the position of the "Upper Lenoir". Shale succeeds the marble. After seeing Lenoir we went down to Sweetwater and took Madisonville road to SE. Saw Athens with trilobites about 4 1/2 miles SE, then thick Tellico above it. In Tellico saw and collected from a cobbly bed containing Dinorthis. This is the same bed as Butts collected at Miser. 1/4 mile N of Christiansburg saw some 25 - 30' of limestone underlying Athens shale. Limestone contained large Sowerbyites, bryozoa and Leptellina and probably belongs with the Athens. The Athens is the same as that NE of Christiansburg seen last year. Drove through section southeast of Christiansburg but added no new information. The big Sowerbyites should be checked as a possible Lenoir fossil. The specimen of Sowerbyites-like shell found by Wang in the Billings area zone should be examined in this connection.
[[stamped]] 0674 [[/stamped]] [[left margin encircled]] 16 [[/left margin encircled]] Finished the day at Athens about 1 mile northeast of the courthouse. Here we saw Apatomorphia zone which occurs on top of hill east of new quarry. The chert fossils between this zone and the Knox must be derived from the Lenoir as Valcourea was taken.

Above the Mosheim are some 30' - 40' of cherty limestone called Ridley = Lenoir by Butts. Just at the road forks the rock gives way from massive limestone with chert to shale and platy ls. with abundant Fascifera and Rostricellula. This division is all of 20 - 25' thick
[[stamped]] 0678 [[/stamped]] [[left margin encircled]] 20 [[/left margin encircled]] and is the same as the Foscifera beds on US 27. Above these beds come platy ls. with shale partings same as on US 27 but in addition some 15' of similar rock with Hesperorthis, Anerstrorhyncha[[guess]] and Eozyga. I think this is same as Hesperorthis[[guess]] horizon on US 27. The combined thickness must be about 35'. Above the Hesperosthis beds are massive Camerocladia bearing ls. about 30' in thickness. Above this for some distance on road could be found fossiliferous plates of ls. with Hesperiorthis[[guess]], Sowerbyella possible Doleroides or Pionodema. This is undoubtedly the Lebanon. Considerable covered distance follows last Lebanon seen but on a small stream about 2 1/2 miles south of Chicamauga Creek muddles of Moccasin type were seen. Some purea ls. in the mass contained abundant Fetradium. This is the Carters Moccasin. The Witten evidently includes Butt's Lenoir plus the Fossifena beds plus the fossiliferous layers through the Lower Hesperasthis horizon. The remaining fosiliferous beds are Lebanon I think the big cut on US 27 is upper OHosee of Rye Cove. Must examine other collections in USam. I think all the rock up to the Fascifera beds in the Murfreesboro. Fascifera is Pierce.

Bimuria ranges throughout. Above this interval comes a sequence of shale, often nearly black, and lenses or tongues of cobbly ls. of Up. Lenoir type and the top one containing Bimuria and Atelelosma. Below this upper zone and just on the NW side of Gulley cemetery occurs a bed of calcarenite with Holston type fossils. This is definitely in the upper Lenoir interval. Thus the Athens shale and "Lenoir" actually interfinger. Along the road leading south of Tenn 66A and just W of Mills Pond are Athens shales exposed for about 3/4 mile. At the road intersection just N of Robertson Creek cobbly ls in yellow shale contained Sowerbyella and a large rafinesquinoid. In afternoon we discovered "Whitesburg" trilobites in the field about 1/4 mile SSE of White Horn. In yellow Sevier type shale at the church in Guthrie Gap. platy ls. containing cystid stem frequently yielded Zygospira and Oligorhynchia. We believe these represent the Witten horizon.

This is overlain by some 25' of yellow-weathering shaly ls. in which we found Christiania. Above this are Upper Lenoir-type of cobbly beds. Many of the cobbles are granular ls & have a shaly surface with some fossils. These are the Whiteburg fossils and there are some 10' of this material.

Now the Sinuites bed directly succeed Christiania bed and include everything from Christiania bed well up into Martinsburg. But Curdsville is basal Martinsburg probably. We have Curdsville on top of Collierstown If he correlates Christiania bed with Shosham, then Curdsville must underly the Oranda as it is Kirksfield (Hull). Visited crinoid locality south of Hansonville but the place is nearly cleaned out. Looked for other places but found only one where we collected Isophragmas. Afternoon went to Blackford for Benbolt but saw no collecting. Basal Benbolt is in all probability the very top of the Upper Lenoir. This permits us to block in the two zones of Isophragma, the Whitesburg one and the Benbolt one. Rain at night

November 4 - Breakfast 1.00 [[strikeout]] Lunch [[/strikeout]] Supper 2.85 Gasoline 60625 2.32 Went over to Porterfield Quarry for morning. Examined "Lenoir". On the Knox occurs a thin Mosheim followed by Calcarenite of Holston type and containing snails. Above this is blue-gray, cobbly limestone lithologically exactly like the upper Lenoir. At the bottom it contains valcourea and Paleostrophomena in great abundance. Then comes a small Sowerbyella in abundance. This is followed by similar rock but with less [[strikethrough]] fossils [[/strikethrough]] brachiopods but containing large cephalopods. Then comes the "Holston".

Overlying the Athens-like cobbly beds occur calcarenite and cobbly ls. with Dystactospongia, rare Stromatocerium which suggest Wardell. Cooper has already called them Belbolt. Above these occurs Moccasin.

Here the ls. rock under the shale is coarse, thin to heavy-bedded calcarenite and undoubtedly is Holston. Beds of "Up. Lenoir" type were seen intercalated in the lower part of the sequence. Some of the quarry beds are a mass of small bryozoa. Evidently Butts identified Lenoir under the black shale at the west end of the quarry. The quarry rock at the end we investigated is most certainly Holston. Early morning went to Draper, Virginia where, on the Lecanospira zone of the Canadian occurs a chert conglomerate in the base of the middle Ordovician,[[guess]] This is followed by about 100' of
[[stamped]] 0693 [[/stamped]] [[left margin encircled]] 35 [[/left margin encircled]] granular limestone containing abundant rhynchonellids throughout the entire thickness Also present in abundance is Mimella nucleus. Above the Calcarenite occurs a considerable thickness of cobbly limestone, the upper part of which is cherty. This upper part is strongly suggestive of the Lincolnshire but we were unable to find any fossils to prove the point. Cooper claims to have a thin representative of the Whitesburg, then comes the Athens. Next we visited a large quarry at the Claytor dam, 6 miles S of Radford. Here Mosheim overlies [[left margin]] Whistle Creek ? [[/left margin]] the Knox and is followed by some 200 feet of shaly, cobbly limestone in which Valcourea is common. These beds suggest the "Upper Lenoir" but we have no conclusive evidence Went to Ellett NE of Christiansburg and saw a sequence of ls. above Mosheim that has Whistle Creek fossils. Last year we thought this to be Lincolnshire but the fossils are more suggestive of Whistle Creek. Above these beds occur a few feet of granular limestone assigned to the Whitesburg. Spent two hours collecting in these beds and in the Athens between Ellett and Lustre's Gate.

Christiansburg to Salem, from Salem over to Catawba and collected most of morning at locality at junction of 114 and 311 about 1 mile W. of Catawba Sanatorium. This locality is quite definitely Whitesburg. Went east on 114 up Catawba Valley to Fincastle. Saw 3 localities one 3 miles East of intersection of 311 & 114 just at base of Mtn. Here much shaly ls of Up. Lenoir type occurs with many bryozoa overlying cherty ls suggesting Whistle Creek. Intercalated in this ls. are layers of Holston - like material. This intercalation is best shown on Catawba Creek 7 miles East of the intersection. Here a great mass of Holston exists with intercalations of dark shaly Whitesburg ls. abounding in Cystonatella.

This marble contains fossils common at Porterfield quarry and is undoubtedly the Effna as claimed by BNC. November 7 - Breakfast 1.10 Lunch 0.30 Supper 2.00 Room (GAC at Clifton Forge, 1 night) 1.75 Rich Patch - Section 0.6 mile NW of junction 616 and 621 ^[[on Va 616]] on Va 616 showed a long section beginning with Whistle Creek at base, followed by Mosheim. Then comes a Lincolnshire interval in which we found Sowerbyites. This is followed by beds with Nidulites and then comes somewhat shaly ls. with Dinorthis transversa and Oxoplecia in abundance. This is followed by 180' of beds with abundant small Sowerbyella and, 90' above D. transversa, Cyclospira was found. Above the Sowerbyella beds come crystalline ls. with Oligorhynchia and Doleroides. Above the crystalline ls which is fairly thick comes fine shales. The same sequence appears on a property 0.6 mile SE of the junction of 616 and 621 on Va 621 ^[[on Va 621]]. Here the shaly beds above Oligorhynchia contain Tetradium in lower 25' and a zone of about 3' thickness about 85' above the base of the shale
[[stamped]] 0696 [[/stamped]] [[encircled]] 38 [[/encircled]] abounds in Doleroides. Above this bed the shale contains few limy lenses and is referred to the Martinsburg. About 1/2 mile SE on the same road where a large spring comes out of the hill occurs a longer sequence. Here Nidulites occurs in the upper beds at the angle of the fence west of the house. Cooper says upper Nidulites comes just under the Oligorhynchia bed. In section on Va 616 a Mosheim underlies the Whistle Creek beds. November 8 Breakfast 1.05 Lunch 1.50 Supper 1.90 Went over to Warm Springs Valley. First section about 1/2 mile SW f junction of US 220 with Va Co hy 606. Here a thick Mosheim is overlain by cherty beds which are followed by dark limestone with Nidulites. This is followed by a long sequence having Showerbyella and this by the Witten. Above the Witten comes shaly beds and thin limestone of the Moccasin (or Eggleston). The next section occurs 1/2 miles SW of Sinking Spring Church on US 220. Here an anticline occurs in the Mosheim. In the upper part of the Mosheim we found Tetradium cellulosan. Above the Mosheim are cherty beds of possible Lincolnshire age but we saw no fossils to prove it. Possibly the Mosheim here equals Lincolnshire. [[vertical note in left margin of last paragraph]] Vaughanite S of Sinking Spr. Ch = Lincolnshire [[/margin note]]
[[stamped]] 0697 [[/stamped]] [[left margin encircled]] 39 [[/left margin encircled]] In the upper part of the cherty beds Nidulites is abundant. A considerable distance above Nidulites black ls. contained Dinorthis, sowerbyella and Mimella probably the Benbolt. The black ls extend for considerable distance and terminate with beds containing Lichenaria, T. fibratum, Strophomena and bryozoa. On top if this come characteristic platy Witten beds with Zygospira. 100' +- above the lower Witten comes red Moccasin for considerable distance Along the roadside about 1/2 - 3/4 mile SW of Sinking Spring Church the cherty beds are well exposed. About 40 - 50' occur below Nidulites and the cherty continues above the Nidulites beds. Possibly the Nidulites occur in the Lincolnshire. The cherty beds below Nidulites are probably Lincolnshire. In the first section seen SW of the junction of US 220, and 606 the basal beds above the Knox consist of alternating striped blue gray ls and dolomite beds 1 - 1 1/2' thick. This is the Blackford and may be the Tiger - striped beds of Kay according to BNC. This interval also contains chert conglomerate.

[[stamped]] 0699 [[/stamped]] [[stamped]] 0762 [[/stamped]] [[left margin]] 41 [[/left margin]] Church shows Trenton opposite the Church, then Oranda in the field just before reaching the creek. Chambersburg, granular and dark occurs on the east side of the Creek. Then comes Athens type of rock west of the bridge. 0.1 - 0.2 mile north of the church on Virginia 617 occurs a splendid exposure of Trenton rocks which we identify as Salona on the grounds of finding Salonia. This section extends to the junction with Va. 777 at an old mill. The Salona contained many fossils that occur also in the Oranda [[strikethrough]] Salona [[/strikethrough]] such as Eoplectodonta Bilobia, Resserella, small Sowerbyellas. The Salona is quite definitely an extension of the Oranda fauna. About 100 yards west of the intersection of 617 and 777 occurs an sayserb[[guess] section of Oranda all of 30' thick. Here the Oranda is composed of alternating soft and hard layers. At the bottom occur small Reserella, Christiania, Hespecosthis and Bilobia, in the lower 5' Bilobia and small Resserella occur in countless numbers in this [[left margin vertical]] Look for Glassia in Colliers town collection.

S of junction of 691 & 692, W of Lantz Mill. Ologorhynchia is very abundant in the lower part of the St. Luke formation. It occurs just over the fence which is approximately on the boundary between the St. Luke and underlying Edinburgh formation
[[stamped]] 0701 [[/stamped]] 43 Fossils are very scarce in the upper beds of the St. Luke. At this locality occurs an excellent section of Oranda and Martinsburg. Next went to Strasburg Junction to see section. The fossiliferous beds collected by Butts and the Cybelopsis bed are definitely under the granular beds we assign to the Whitesburg. The Cyrtonotella beds, we now believe belong to the Athens as revealed at Sharon Springs and the Porterfield Quarry This is the Athens that goes over into Ward Cove & Benbolt. Went to Hupp Hill to collect dirt and etching material. This is a superb section for Nidulites which occurs from the highway almost to the very top of the Chambersburg. Benbolt elements seen in the lower part of the Nidulites zone are Platycystites and Dinorthis Transversa. The latter occurs in the field where the innumerable etch pieces were collected. With it occurs Corineosthis and Christiania. Beds at the top of the Chambersburg section contain numerous Camerocladia.
[[stamped]] 0702 [[/stamped]] [[left margin]] 44 [[/left margin]] November 14 - Breakfast 1.20 Lunch 1.20 Supper 2.95 Rain all day but visited Rest where dark intercolations occur in the Mosheim. We found large ostropods and Strophonena in the dark granular rock. This suggests that "Lenoir" type rock interfingers with the Mosheim. We also saw several fossils suggestive of T. cellulosum but were unable to collect them because they were on large slabs. Went to locality 1.7 miles SW of Wadesville to locate Whitesburg said to be in that section. Between "Lenoir" and ^[[first]] Chambersburg type of rock occurs a considerable thickness of shaly and platy ls which include occasional thin granular plates or lenses. These granular masses contain fossils such as Corineorthis, Resserella, and Christiania. These indicate a relationship with post - Whitesburg Athens. No true Whitesburg was seen. At Strasburg Junction about 15' of granular and shaly limestone lie between the granular beds and the cherty Lincolnshires. These beds contain abundant Strophromena at base, trilobites and at top Whitesburg - type fossils appear. It all may be Whitesburg.

Transversa occurs through 60' of wobbly beds. These also contain ^[[Echinosphaerites]], Oxoplecia, Cluistiania. This I think is the brachiopod zone of the Strasburg section. Above this is cobbly limestone ca 200' thick. No Medilites [[?guess]] seen. Above this are 20' of dark granular ledge-making ls. Then 25' of striped "Athens" Above the Athens are 60' - 70' of gray argillaceous limestone with calcarenite lenses containing Rafinesquina, Lambephyllum. In afternoon visited Whistle Creek Area. About 1/2 mile down the creek and 70' below the Botetourt occurs D. Atavoides just over the Murat. Thus the Lincolnshire here is divided into two members by the Murat.

Gooseneck fauna not same as Miser according to Al. A mile from Big Spring we collected brachiopods in high Sevier that suggested Benbolt. In afternoon scouted roads at Meadow, Rega and McMullens. Oct. 30 Breakfast 0.66 Lunch 0.78 Supper 1.48 ----- 282 Morning visited Lenoir at Lenoir City and Philadelphia and went on to Christiansburg. Afternoon Al and I ran roads south of Athens. Found a Sowerbyites zone in a sort of Biohermal mass about 1 1 2/ miles south-southeast of Athens. Irregularly bedded limestone, very impure in yellow-weathering shale contained Multicostella, Cyrtonotella, Dinorthis and Sowerbyites. The latter is small and very fine-lined. Nearly 3 miles south of Athens found nodules in yellow shale containing Dinorthis like willardi and Oligorhynchia. These two localities are extremely suggestive of Hogskin but some of the species and assemblage are not quite like the Hogskin

Moore's students found Oligorhynchia just under or over Sowerbyella bed opposite big white house in Evans Ferry section. I failed to find any but did see abundance of Plectocamara at the same horizon. This puts these two genera as high a Wardell. At Rose Hill Charley Wilson thought the beds between Curdsville and the thick Bentonite is upper "upper" Carters. The Witten and Mocassin are undoubtedly related to Lebanon and Carters. Mocassin may = Lebanon. We saw Nidulites in the Rose Hill section, Tenn. Bed on Tenn 33 about 1.7 miles NNE of Halls X roads are in the "Hogskin".

It is followed by 5' of variegated red & green sh (red at base, green at top. Then 250' are covered when the brown sandy shale of the Riceville beds appears. Above these are black platy limestone of the Athens. The sequence is thus very much like that at Charleston as regards the Christiania beds. It is interesting to note that Keith on the Louden Sheet pinches the Athens out between the south west edge of the map and Christiansburg. The passage to limestone is not complete here but does become complete at Friendsville. At the Britton Church place, as at Charleston, the Christiania beds could be set out as a member.

Went to Friends Church. Opposite church in ditch are red & green shaly rocks, similar to those seen SE of Britton Church locality. Possibly it is rotten dolomite, possibly Blacksford. It is not exposed behind the church. In the section 1 mile NE of Friendsville about 10' above the [[underlined]] Valcourea [[/underlined]] granular ls. occur large sowerbyites-like brachiopods suggesting the Plectamberutes amplus of Raymond seen abundantly at Christiansburg. No [[underlined]] Christiania [[/underlined]] occur with these and I assume them to be a different species: In the section on the south side of the road the Billings area beds are beautifully displayed. They appear just above the granular Valcourea beds at the edge of the woods on the beginning of the east slope of the first hill which is composed of the Mosheim. Billings area occurs commonly on east slope of second hill just west of stream & house. The west slope and top of the hill just east of the first house are composed of blue-gray shaly ls. On the east slope of this hill the Christiania come in by the thousand but no perceptible lithological change occurs

On south side of road 1.1 mile from intersection is a bank with crumbly limestone which overlies the Guttenberg material This contains Clitambonites, Platystrophia, Rafinesquina. It is the Ion or Prosser.

ARL Jr. thinks this is the same bed as the thick mass of bryozoa on Hy 99. Above this came limestones generally moderately bedded and iron stained. The upper Bromide consists of some 60 - 80' (?) of light gray moderately bedded limestone containing Ancistrorhyncha at the top. The sequence is thus like that at Falls Creek & Hy 99.

The rocks from the mealy band up are darker in fracture & are mottled and often irregularly pitted thus suggesting Nealmont. The Nealmont is very massive grayish black limestone with some crinoidal debris. About 5-10' of Salonia overlies the Nealmont. It is cobbly, black ls weathering yellowish gray.

The next 65' of rock are difficult of definition but in it are black fracturing light gray weathering with wavy streaks. The lithology is very suggestive of Nealmont. The ledges are quite thick when fresh. I see nothing absolutely typical of Nealmont. The upper bed ^[[of the 65']] is a 3 - 4' band of conchoidally fracturing silicious ls. reminiscent of Hostler Above the 65' comes about 20' with Stover-like lithology, irregular short horizontal pits. I cannot be sure if this is Stover or Nealmont because the look similar. On this Stover-like material comes 2-3' of mealy ls with Glyptorthis and Pionodema, the same as the mealy band in Naginey No. 1. Above the mealy bed are 25' of Nealmont-like rock Fine-ribbed Ancistrorhyncha was seen in the rock of one 65' interval The shaly beds are interbedded with dense ribbon banded limestone weathering brownish gray and leaving a conchoidal fracture. Near the entrance to the quarry where the section begins the rock seems dolimitic. This division suggests the Loysburg but it may as well be Canadian.

Section on base of Cedar Ridge Pikeville [[drawing of a square]], Section started at road intersection and headed toward Low Gap. The lowest rock is like that of low Peery just above red beds in Andersonville section. Ancistrorhyncha present in all lower rocks but hard to get. Fossils occured again near top of massive ls. Here also Glyptorthis like G. asimilis. Then a little higher came Hesperorthis & Opikina like the high Wardell. This is also like high Ridley. Above the Wardell-Ridley came Camarocladia beds and about 60' above base Pionodema and other occurs some distance above Lebanon fossils. A calcarenite occurs some distance above the Camarocladia beds & has Sowerbyella, Doleroids & Campylorthis. I think this is all high Lebanon. Above the granular bed the section is mostly covered but bluish ls contain T. cellulosum and Lichenaria. This is undoubtedly the Carters. Then comes a Bentonite followed by earthy limey layers.
At junction Tennessee 8 & 28 just SE of Dunlap are high beds of our section with Bentonites. Between bentonites are chalky-weathering limestones with fairly large cup corals. This reminds me of the large quarry in Chattanooga.

As nearly as we could determine the base of the beds on the creek are just about the base of the Murfreesboro. I think that the creek may have cut down on the contact. Taking the right fork of the road there is an exposure of Benbolt-like rock at the top of a low hill. This overlies a thick yellow shale and it underlies Hesperornis beds we think are Wardell. The quarry 1 1/2 S of Cove Church seems to be in Wardell and lower Lebanon. The combination of species suggest Wardell rather than high Lebanon. The Hesperornis beds north of Rock Spring must be in the Wardell also. The Ridley then would include most of the shaly beds above the Maclurites ls. The big cut on the north bank of Chicamauga Creek on US 27 is same Benbolt-like bed as that seen this morning.

This is overlain by 10 or 15' of cobbly ls with Bimmia [[left margin]] [[5 pointed star]] [[/left margin]] Then comes shale. The shale east of Benton was determined by Ulrich as Athens. In the Arline tongue we saw Cystonotella, Leptellina and Orthomborides besides the Bimmia. The Lenoir was not seen west of Cisco except for Mosheim. At Benton the Newala was followed by cgl. mudstone, yellowish in color Then came the Lenoir which seemed to be in a swale in the Newala. About 2 mi NE on this ridge at a road intersection a greater thickness of Arline appeared.
[[stamped]] 0824 [[/stamped]] [[left margin encircled]] 17 [[/left margin encircled]] Oct. 23 Just over bridge E of Snow Hill School, yellowish mud-cracked mud-stone & some dove ls. Farther along the road beside the Word Mahan just east of Snow Hill come dove ls. with Strophomena like the Wardell one.. Then more yellow mud-cracked rock. At second house (one near road) is a red bed. South side road. Opposite first house ^[[(about 1/2 mile E)]] on N side road east of Tenn 6 occurs top of section in silty yellow beds, with one red bed. This is Cane Creek according to Cooper. A chert ends section. Between 0.2 & 0.3 mile E of Tenn 60 are earthy shaly beds yellow with shell beds full of Doleroides. At entrance to Gap occur beds with Hebertella frankforteusis On SE of intersection Mahan Gap road & Tenn 60. Thin bedded ls abounding in Zygospira. At house about 1/2 mile est of Tenn 60 a thicker chert occurs below the lower one. This sets off the Cane Creek fm. between cherts

Knobs and saw same section as east of Snow-Hill. along Tenn 58 we saw the lower chert zone at the top with Hardy Creek ls under it. This limestone is [[left margin]] light [[/left margin]] blue gray when weathered and is filled with large Zygospria. Saw Moccasin-Witten type limestone all along Tenn 58 on Birchwood [[square symbol]] from Clint Hill Church SW to about 1 1/2 from the Southwest corner of the [[square symbol]]. Went back to Snow Hill and measured section. A lower red bed occurs about 40' above the base and is sandwiched between yellowish earthy beds. A second red-bed of redder mealy rock occurs higher in the section and is exposed at first house west of Tenn 60 on Mahan Gap road Another excellent section appears on Providence road just west of Tenn 60. The lower red occurs about 1/2 mi SE of junction of Roy Lane & Providence road. The upper red is well exposed just east of Providence Church. Here Tetradium ^[[and Pionodena]] was found just under it. About 0.1 mile east of the Providence church
826 [left margin encircled]] 19 [[/left margin encircled]] in the woods not far north of the road is an excellent section of the beds above the lower reds and yellows. These rocks are dove Lowville type with rounded blobs of chert. On top of the cherty beds occur Mosheim type limestones. In this belt above the cherty beds occur [[strikethrough]] Pionodema [[/strikethrough]] and zygospira. Higher and below the cherts a few calcarenites produced abundant Doleroides. All this suggests Lebanon - Witten.

[[left margin encircled]] 20 [[/left margin encircled]] 827 October 25 Went to St. Clair. Ampyx americarius just on top of Arline beds suggest same relationship as at Catawba. At bridge over Robertson Creek occur cobbly beds which suggest middle Athens. The slabby and limy beds, in the cuts on the Hiwasse River. It suggests that the Arline, the Graptolite shales and the cobbly slabby ls all are equal to type Athens at least as displayed at Charleston. Ls ends about opposite 2nd house S of bridge. On the curve just south of the house is hackly clearing yellow shale. On S side next S bend comes Sevier, massive blue weathering yellow, nearly vertical Near Mooney Cemetery same blue-gray yellow-weathering rock. Contains a few fossils Thick bedded Sevier with D. Transversa just north of road east, S of Mooney Cem. Just S of road east come limestone with Cystid plates and Oligorhynchia. This is
[[stamped]] 0828 [[/stamped]] [[left margin encircled]] 21 [[/left margin encircled]] covered by thin-bedded ls and some yellow shale. The limestone dark gray to black, fine-grained, mud rock lithology well-mud-cracked-axis of syncline just south of first house S of road east 0.7 mi N of Oates Cobbles just S of Whitehorn occur at base of cobbly beds above the shale. The Otes Lingulas must occur near the top of the cobbly beds. Returned to section north of Otes to see mud-cracked beds. Coop (B. N.) identified the mud-cracked beds as his Bowen formation. Above the yellow gray mud cracked beds come red-beds near the middle of the hill. Above that we did not go. The Bowen was thought by BNC to be 60 feet thick. There would be little Witten there. The section from St. Clair south is thus: [[left margin]] ___________ | [[/left margin]]

Found Dinorthis transversa about 0.4 miles N of the church. The cystid beds appear 0.3 mile south of the church behind a house on east side road. Above these is a hard sandstone band suggesting the Tellico ss. On the hill just SE of the church are beds stuffed with bryozoans and cystid plates suggesting the cystid bed above Dinorthis. Where exposed SE of the church it reverses dip. The beds above dip north and those on the other side

This puts the Zygospira - Oligorhynchia beds above the Cystid bed in the hill beside the church and also on the hill southeast of the church where they dip south We saw no Bowen in this section.
1950 [[stamped]] 0831 [[stamped]] Virginia Sept 19 - 23. September 19 - Visited locality @ 6.5 miles NE of Lustres Gate. Large channel in Knox filled with thick succession of limestone. Near base Rostricellula abundant. Slightly higher Dactylogonia abundant. Maclurites beds overlie the brachiopod beds and all covered by rock suggesting Lincolnshire but without any diagnostic fossils being seen. Batetourt overlies the whole. About a mile or two SW at locality visited last year Batetourt lithology with fossils occurs in coarse calcarenites forming a great reefy mass. The calcarenites at the base of the channel in the Knox are suggestive of the Lenoir beds about 3 miles SW of Marrion, Va.

Sept. 20[[superscript]] 1 [[/superscript]] 0.6 mile farther south and on W side road red sandy shales occur in contact with Knox. Overlying this are blackford-like dolomites followed by real-chazy thin bedded ls. containing Mimella. Above this is the Whistle Creek followed by Lincolnshire lithology. This is overlain by nodular ls. looking like upper (Christiana) Lenoir Botetourt follows the nodular beds. Then comes a thin calcarenite and the Athens. Whistle Creek here abounds in a species of Nidulites Sept 20[[superscript]] 2 [[/superscript] - About one mile south of Ellett on west side of road about 100 yards west of the Hy. About 10' above the Knox rock is crowded with [[underlined]] Rostricellula. [[/underlined]] The rock also contains ragged fragments of chert. Rock above Rostricellula beds reminds strongly of lower Lenoir, shaly rock with blue patches. The rock has blue patches in a shaly matrix. Considerable dolomite occurring in the lower part of the section.

0858 Check up on posterior June 17 Left Ann Arbor about 8:30 A M, reached Ingersoll about 3:30 P.M. First quarry just NW of Ontario Hy 2 about 2 miles NE of Ingersoll, Quarry of Chemical Lime Co. Here are about 50 - 90 feet of Detroit River (probably Lucas & possibly some Amherstburg In wells under the Lucas comes cherty beds of Amphigenia zone of Lower Onondaga. The cherty zone under the Lucas is probably thicker than where it outcrops. The Lucas is overlain by Columbus with Paraspirifer, very wide-lineged Spinifers (macrus?) many Conocardium, good typical Colombus limestone. About 15' of Columbus occurs at this quarry. Almost in the city of Ingersoll a well shows 45' of the cap rock (Columbus) This could be partly Dundee or Delaware. In a quarry just SW of RR station at Innerkip is a defunct quarry with Silurian in lower part and with cherty Onondaga about 10' on top. Here are many corals and a few brachiopods including Amphigenia. This is lowest Onondaga according to Dr. Ehlers and belongs under the Detroit River of the Ingersoll Quarry.
