Creek Walking

Corey

Ok, so I'm looking for some new fields around my area, and have been doing a little bit of research online about the creeks in my area that flow into the Ohio River. There are 2 main creeks that I live near that do that. One is Sunday Creek, the other is Monday Creek. Both creeks were used by the Indians. I know of 2 fields on either side of a portion of Monday Creek in Nelsonville, Ohio, and I plan on searching them, as well as the outer banks of the creek, but I was wondering if anybody else has had any luck with Monday Creek/Sunday Creek in general?

A definition of a “Renaissance man” if there ever was one, native Hoosier Earl Townsend Jr. was an attorney, pioneering broadcaster, philanthropist, collector, and historian. In addition to being Gerald Ford’s roommate at the University of Michigan and announcing the first televised broadcast of the Indianapolis 500, Townsend was also inducted into the Council of Sagamores of the Wabash and the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame. An artifact collector from 1920 onwards, Townsend’s passion ultimately resulted one of the largest and most significant collections of prehistoric North American stone artifacts, with particular interest in birdstones, flints, and bannerstones.

Birdstones were Townsend’s primary object of interest, collection, and study; so much so, he published the preeminent reference book on the subject, Birdstones of the North American Indian, in 1959. His personal collection of birdstones exceeded 600. The Townsend Collection 2 will feature  “The Smithsonian Bird,” a prehistoric porphyry granite birdstone that is considered the finest so far discovered. This birdstone acquired its name while being held by the Smithsonian National Museum in Washington, D.C., from whom Townsend acquired the piece in the 1950s.
