I'd love for that to be the case. Ill do a test hole and keep you updated.
Some 50 years ago I was digging behind an abandoned house near downtown Charleston. Dug in the corner where I assumed the privy was and found lots of good stuff. When it was empty, I started by removing some of the bricks to the side thinking the next house over might have had a privy there. Almost raw sand but in that sand was this Charles Clark bottle. I've always assumed it was left there by whomever was laying the bricks when the privy was built. TonyPrivy's on Farm house's I've found be be harder to find then the City due to the much more wide open space & acres. BUT, Once you do find it go straight in from the top down. But, on many instances I've done this & dug out the privy, Then, many times you can probe the side walls & probe into another privy right next to it, SO, In that case you would be going in from the side. I've done this may times. LEON.
Are the poles on the property line, it looks like it, sides maybe? I usually start at a back corner & work my way across the back of the property line to the next corner. If I find nothing there I then work my way up the sides of the Property line from back corners, if nothing there you can try a straight line out from back Door. If nothing there then it could be anywhere & you gotta probe the whole back yard. LEON.
