While doing some reading about William Bartram I came across references to a "Baxter" mound. References stated that it was located near Ruth Lake which is below RT46. It seems that William Bartram stayed on the mound twice while visiting the area in the 1700s. I later found documents that say that Baxter Mound is also know as Persimmon Mound. A lot of references make note that Persimmon Mound was down on the east coast of the St Johns River, below Lake Winder. That seems to be incorrect according to the documents I have found.
I have asked a number of groups and individuals if they know where the mound is, some speculation, but no hard facts. If you should know anything about this subject, please let me know at tecmisc at gmail.com.
Look at the page "Assembled Data" for some of the details I have found.
