Please look at the first few pages of the Lewisboro chapter. Rock piles and stone structures are discussed.

Tantalizing information, but unfortunately (except for the location of the stone bound in the deed) the locations (e.g. Pudding Lane, Pequot Mills) are no longer locatable - unless someone here knows the area well enough to locate them!

The references to trees ringed with stones are interesting. Presumably the tress are gone, but the stones might remain. Without this information, who would have thought to interpret a ring of stones as outlining a long-gone tree rather than a host of other imagined purposes.
