For the Fortification

Attached is the Facebook conversation on the etchings.

New Hampshire Ring

Below I will simple add the images from Facebook of the conversation with the finder.

Caractors Document

obtained this digeurotype photograph of the Caractors document. This is a real good find as it adds to the clarity of some images which are more worn on the more commonly seen photograph of the artifact. According to Rachel Killebrew who works as a curator of the museum for the Community of Christ Church, the […]

Michigan Artifacts Requesting Research

This post here is an open request for Eric Perkins and Richard Stamps to assist with Brian Nettles on analyzing artifacts with rational reason to believe that they are ancient and authentic. Richard Stamps is a Michigan State archeologist who previously analyzed the artifacts and wrote an article entitled “Tools Leave Marks”. Because of Richard’s […]

The Bat Creek Stone

You may have heard of the Bat Creek Stone. It was found in a Smithsonian dig in Tennessee in 1889 by John W. Emmert. According to the excavator, John W. Emmert, “two copper bracelets, an engraved stone, a small drilled fossil, a copper bead, a bone implement, and some small pieces of polished wood soft […]

M.E. Cornell on Prehistoric Relics

This publication was favorable to the legitimacy of the artifacts found in Michigan. In this article, I simple intend to highlight portions which I found interesting and relevant. Introduction Pages 5-6 About two years since, a wonderful discovery of mound relics, was made in the vicinity of Wyman, Montcalm Co., Michigan. Mr. J. O. Scotford […]

John Russell on Early Findings in Michigan

The book written by John Russell is entitled Prehistoric Discoveries in Wayne County, Michigan and was published in 1911. This report is favorable on the legitimacy of artifacts found in Michigan during the time when the majority of these artifacts were found. Artifacts are still being found but generally disregarded as not important. Below are […]

Henrietta Mertz Reports on Earliest Michigan Artifacts

When one researches the artifacts of Michigan, it is very common that the report will state that the first artifact of this strange type found was by James Scotford. Everything follows this first finding in the fall of 1890. If the claims from Henrietta Mertz in the book The Mystic Symbol are correct, then the […]

The Publication of a Written Prayer to God

I would not have figured this out had it not been for working the language system of the Burrows Stones. The third line from the bottom has a line of a large font size engravings. It reads from right to left. The language is Hebrew. The letters are a mixture of Libyan, Phoenician, and Michigan. […]

Lost Battle with Peace Treaty

This artifact was photographed and included in Rudolph Etzenhousers’ publication called Engravings of Prehistoric Specimens published in 1910. Let’s break it down and see what we can make out of it. This top section indicates that both parties are of the YHW people. This is not a battle of Nephites vs Lamanites. It is indicating […]

7b. Joseph Smith Obtains the Plates – Times and Seasons

https://www.josephsmithpapers.org/paper-summary/history-of-joseph-smith/9 Owing to my still continuing to assert that I had seen a vision persecution, still followed me, and my wife’s father’s family were very much opposed to our being married. I was therefore under the necessity of taking her elsewhere so we went and were married at the house of Squire Tarbill, in South […]

Doctrine and Covenants 128:20 – Cumorah

I really don’t know how more direct you can be. Here is a verse from the cannonized scripture known as the Doctrine and Covenants. Doctrine and Covenants 128:20 20 And again, what do we hear? Glad tidings from Cumorah! Moroni, an angel from heaven, declaring the fulfilment of the prophets—the book to be revealed. A voice of the […]

The Mound Builders

Notes about the Adena and Hopewell I will do my best to make this an objective posting rather than a posting that just fits my narative. For years now, I have listened to certain groups claiming the Adena to be the Jaredites and the Hopewell to be the Nephites. This hypothesis might be correct. But […]

Location of the Zarahemla Temple – Wilford Woodruff

I acknowledge that this is not authoritative. I am taking this quote from Facebook from a post written by Rod Meldrum (Author of Book of Mormon Answers). I had heard this before but did not know the source. So these are the words of Rod Meldrum to be verified at a later time. Even if […]

D&C 57 – The Land of Promise

Very short post here. The Land of Promise is designated in these two verses. Is is possible that the term “Land of Promise” means one thing in the Book of Mormon and something else in the Doctrine and Covenants. Doctrine and Covenants 57:1-2 1 Hearken, O ye elders of my church, saith the Lord your God, […]

Scurvy

Line 1 You got it- סגעת Everything -הכל Both translated values come from Google Translate. Line 2 in the mouth – בעיס and – ו Know – דע Alternative meaning to Know is דעך. Ben Yehuda’s Dictionary states: “to Flicker; be extinguished; on the verge of dying”. Justification for the alternate definition is the dot […]

Recruiting for Mariners

This is another artifact from Burrows Cave found near the Wabash River in the Illinois / Indiana areas. Line 1 Line begins with ל which means “To”. פמ – Short for Open to the Public. The letters פמ are encased in the words for Open or Publicly. כל – all ציא or צי – ציא […]

The Boy Archer

This artifact is another stone from Burrows Cave found in near the Wabash River in either Indiana or Illinois. Red – ילד Boy Yellow – Atm the Mariner Blue – מלאב House of Mela Discussion: Looks like a bad image of a female archer. But the red circle clearly is Boy in Hebrew. And his […]

Leg Bit Off By a Pig

This artifact is another Burrows Cave stone. With proper transliteration, it translates well from Hebrew. The Hebrew word for Leg is רגל. The first two letters are גל. Good Fit. The rest of the translation is made using Google Translate. Drop the values into Google Translate and see if you get the same answers I […]
