Gomez Mill House has restored the root cellar at our site. Dates to around
1880. In doing so we dug an additional four feet below what we thought was
the bottom and found that in our planning we missed another shelf layer. The
good news is that we found a layer of ash and in that layer enough artifacts
probably from the owner of the house, Dard Hunter (1912-1918), to keep the
archaeologist washing and gluing into the late fall.

Questions are: We found a very rusty license plate.  Need the best way to
remove the rust.

Secondly, if we get a plate number, is there anyway in New York state to
trace the owner?
