My dig partner and i got into our first privy of the year. The house was built in 1858 and was owned by Milo Blair owner of the Boonville Eagle and then by John Cosgrove a member of the U.S House of Represenatives. Heres a pic of the house l had to get it off the net cause i forgot to take one.

Congratulations, Brian. A bottle like that is all it takes to make a pit well worth the effort. That's a beautiful house, too. ~Jim

Dude! Awesome awesome soda man, that's one extraordinary find. I don't know a thing about it otherwise, but you've conveyed enough for it to be clear that you found one of Boonville's Holy Grails. Couldn't have been found by a better fellow, I'm super happy for you! [:)]
