Logs of Test Holes and Wells, Page 1 of 8

On the pages that follow are listed the logs of 127 test holes and water wells and 3 partial logs of oil-test wells in Barton and Stafford Counties. Of the logs, 106 are of test holes drilled by the State Geological Survey (Fig. 9), 20 are of test holes and water wells drilled by private drillers, and 3 are partial logs of oil tests. The samples of test holes drilled by the State Geological Survey were collected and studied in the field by O.S. Fent, C.K. Bayne, or Delmar Berry and were studied in the office by me.
