Abstract

The main body of the original Early Carbonic Mississippian series of Winchell, appears to get its title, not from the distinguished paleontologist of New York, and one-time State Geologist of Iowa, as is so often asserted, but from a much earlier designation. Nicollet, so early as 1841, clearly denominated the high limestone bluff at the town of Burlington, as the "Burlington section," noting characteristic fossils occurring in the rocks, but not distinguishing the basal shales covered mostly by heavy talus, which Worthen afterwards terms the Kinderhook shales, the beds previously called by Meek, Swallow, Hall, White & Whitfield and others, the Chemung group, after the New York terminology.
