Notes

This bannerstone is broken at the spine either because the stone is weakest at the thin surface of the spine or because it was intentionally broken at the spine as is common with bannerstones. There are chips along the edge of the lower crescent. Fort Wayne Indiana E. Phelps, 1814 is written on a label loosely pasted on the stone.
