One is full the other three are empty. They date back to the 1890's. There is also a stone slab with the name "Mike" on it. This is a very remote location, I got there on my 400EX (quad). Just wondering if anyone knows anything about this????

: They were escaped family of slaves that were hung back in 1895. It took the owner 25 yrs of searching to finally catch up with them of witch he was also hung for what he had done to the family. Wow I thought I was the only one that knew about the site and the history of it.
