We traveled north along Decker Hollow Road (past the site of the elusive LY1233 - X 235) to Kimbles to continue our search for the 235 series marks. This mark required no searching. As described, it's set in the northwest wingwall of the north abutment of a concrete bridge along T495, less than 200 feet south-southeast of the intersection of Decker Hollow Road and T495. The mark is in good condition with legible stamping.

A report on the condition of this survey mark has been submitted to NGS.

Recovered in good condition.

This second order vertical control station is set in the top of the northwest wingwall for the north abutment of a bridge along Hendershot Road (T495) which spans Decker Creek. The historical description leads reliably to the station. At the station a Garmin GPSmap76 receiver with remote active antenna was used to record WAAS-corrected coordinates which were 51 feet from the scaled coordinates listed in the NGS datasheet. The mark is well exposed, in good condition, and the stamped designation is legible. ~Rich in NEPA~
