I found the Items in an 8 ft x8 ft earea digging in all metal  the finds seem to confirm the old story I heard  that when tabor homsteaded this site in 1879 his 1st house was on a hill  he later built a house in the farm field to the east  but i dont know exactly whear but from the finds it seems the house was demolished I can tell this from the many cut nails , I never find this many cut nails out in the feild  only an ocasianal cut nail ,  but if you notice most of the nails ar broken  indicating they tor off boards and knocked of the heads that stuck out of the beams and many are bent also indicating being pulled  or hammered backwards so I think they salvaged the boards and foundation stones and rebuilt the new house in 1890s but i have yet to pinpont the foundation  wich sould hold lots of cement mortar that was chipped away from the stones two no iron targets came out  a brass washer and a melted lead  I have been over this spot in discrimination many times with many detectors  but it took a dig all to get the brass and lead , the thing with holes was 1 ft down and targets ranged from suface to 10" mostly

Man Gunnar you had to dig alot. I dont know If I could do all metal on the church site. It would look like a rotatiller went through. I'll wait for them to grade up the area then run my 1.5 foot wide magnet across the area because there is probably 50 lbs of nails there.

Your right about that. The one kind of place or site I have found very hard to Detect is a home or Building site that burned to the ground.  These kind of sites I feel can be the toughest too hunt.
