Absolutely, any particular ones you are looking for? I have three maybe four different ones. Some have their lids some don't. I'll try to get the pictures done tonight or in the morning.
Having issues with internet, I'll get those pictures posted asap.

Yes. my interest is on the jars with lighting glass stoppers. I know nothing about them. The only thing I have is a broken glass disk with a slot crossing it Al

These are my favorite jars honestly. The different ways the wire is attached and the styles of glass and images makes them so much more interesting in my opinion.

Clamped Glass-Lid Jars (Lightning Jars)


This site has a great selection of information on them as well as the other types of jars. I have found several other links within this site very useful as well.

These are two of the outbuildings on the property. The small blue home is the original homestead two room cabin that was framed over and wooden siding added.

That looks like a good place to look for a Privy. Could be lots of good old Bottles in bottom of there Privy. LEON.
We haven't located anything that would indicate where it would be. What should I look for or is there a "usual" location to look for?

If you know where the property line is I always start at back corners. If property has a fence or trees or bushes lining the property line then that makes it much easier but I don't see that on your Pics. If you don't know where the property line/boundries are can make it more difficult to find. Sometimes you can find a slightly sunken depression in ground where it once was. You'll need a Probe to find it though. Sometimes it right near back door. Here's a pic of a late 1870's early 1880's Privy I found Recently. Good Luck. LEON.

If this is the back yard where my arrow points then try back here with probe, start at corners & work you way across back property line. if nothing work your way up the sides of property line. Good Luck. LEON.
