Rock Piles

That link that had the Rockpile blog spot had pictures that were very similar to one ones that I posted.
Were the rockpiles in you pics all the same type rocks? I can see many of these piles being from farmers even in the Piedmont of Georgia.

The difference is that in your area, we know there was a lot of Indian rock moving activity.

I would think with a little investigation, you might could figure out if the rocks came from the adjacent abandoned field or from a nearby quarry.

I don't believe they are all the same but will have to examine closer. They are about 10-15 piles on this slope facing West/West North. Rocks are everywhere. It takes a lot of clearing rock time to make 1/2 acre a food plot.
 
Take a trip to New England and you will see a lot of rock walls.
Same here until recently. Most of them have been sold to rock masons and carried off and made into rockwork.
 
That area between Putnam County, Hancock, Warren, McDuffie, Washington, Columbia and Lincoln County has some interesting geology.

Lot's of Granite, quartz, gold, and amethyst in the area. Ivey Farm in Warren County. Jackson's Crossroads in Washington County. Graves Mountain in Lincoln County.

I heard the same granite that pops up around Sparta and also in Columbia County is the same vein as Stone Mountain.
I looked for Indian artifacts Sat in Hancock and saw many diff kinds and colors of rocks
including dark blue granite, white quartzite and sandstone that had red and yellow in it. Lucked into a few points, too.

Sparta was built on the site of an Indian Trading Post. This was on the Upper Trading Path or Oakfuskee Path.

Doesn't look to be directly on the trading post site.
