Abstract

In "A Report on Greene County" by Edward M. Shepard in Geological Survey of Missouri, Volume 12, Part 1, 1898, we find the following description of "Shaking Mound Spring" in n.w. 1/4 Sec. 15, T29N, R24W. "Here the water rises from the summit and seeps off all over the low mound, which is 12 ft. high, and 50 x 70 ft. in dimension." It "is most remarkable from the fact that it shakes all over when walked upon. Poles are easily sunk through the tenacious turf down to a distance of 6 to 10 feet into the black muck that makes up the bulk of the mound. **** Cattle are frequently mired in the bog. **** it is a rare example in the South, of the peat bog which is not uncommon in the more northern regions."
