Trinity Stones (on FaceBook):
Does Indian Meal ROAD have anything in common with the Indian PATH?
Maybe, maybe not.

The Indian PATH Crosses the Brook in New Perlican (near the Long Bridge).
It then continues past the Five Roads and follows the Road towards Hearts Content.
Indian Meal ROAD starts near the Old Post Office, goes past the Church
and converges with the Indian PATH.

Indian Meal ROAD is so named because the 1850s Government Relief Project
(that built the ROAD) paid the workers with Corn Meal (Indian Meal) and Molasses.

Along the ROAD are 5 Mounds (traditionally called The Graves).
Are they Graves or are they StockPiles of Rock used to build the ROAD?
One OvalShaped Mound of Stones has a Section Missing
(resulting in a Concavity on one side).
The Missing Stones appear to be Neatly Stacked about 10' away to form a Smaller Mound.
This is surely NOT the Work of Grave Looters
(the Stones would have been Cast aside indiscriminately).
Is the Grave Robbed to make another, smaller Grave?
Perhaps the Grave of a Child?
The Stones Speak, but they do Not tell all!
