This is on Balcony Hill. Bob, you may remember Elizabeth Morgan wrote about it and we searched for the Azimuth markBTW, Balcony Hill can be seen Southeast of that bog on the Cook and Vermeule topo's. The name does not appear on any of the other historical topo maps.
Yes, some of the other topos show it at 204 feet with the road going over the 204 level. But, they dug out both sides quite a bit, especially the NW side.
BTW, I was looking over old deed info, and the swamp around the Broom Stones was called "Swago Swamp."I imagine that the early ones without a lot of money backing 'em were not cut straight and may not have had all the ditches cut just so, and were quickly overgrown, and may be unrecognizable today. And even if cut straight, like this one below from 1930, can be almost recognizable in 2015 as shown in the second panel. Kudos if someone can identify where this is.

Paharo or Pharo?In any event, that upland from the Pinelands Community home to around the road to Wading Pines was surveyed as I mentioned in 1754. Owned by a John Monroe and some of the lots owned by a Timothy Paharo who sold it to Israel Broom. I assume Broom is an ancestor of the people who put in the incised stones.
