BIOGRAPHY
"About three-quarters of a mile below Sulphur Spring Station, Wild Cat Run joins the Scioto from the east.  It is deeply and almost astonishingly cut into the hard limestone beds, across which it keeps a fresh section of the layers finely exposed.  At the top of the bluff, where one reaches the general level by ascending the bed of this ravine (dry most of the year), Mr. Peter Burlet has a fine quarry in the Delaware beds of the Coniferous.  Near him Fred Burlet has another.  From the latter there is a continuous exposure to the level of the Scioto, where Mr. Richard Colvin's quarry and kilns for lime-burning are operated by Charles G. Schmidt."  "Heavy layers of Delhi stone; thin-bedded when weathered; Sixteen or seventeen years ago (source written in 1874) these beds were extensively wrought for the abutments and piers of the railroad bridge over the Scioto, near here.  Very heavy, large blocks were taken out, yet these layers are generally see but 3 or 4 inches thick where weathered.  Fred Burlet's quarry is just on the top of these layers, including 3 feet of the Delaware stone."  (43)
