Summary:

Pg. 421, 426. Jagger Bend bed in Albany division. To south, mostly alternating flaggy, smooth limestone, carbonaceous shaly limestone, and carbonaceous clay, 25 to 75 feet thick. Fossiliferous. To north carbonaceous nature not so apparent. Member of Albany division [Albany is uppermost of 5 Carboniferous divisions of Cummins, 1891].

Summary:

Sheet 2. Jagger Bend limestone member of Belle Plains formation. Mostly dark-blue-gray medium-grained hard even layers that contain abundant minute vermicular foraminiferal debris; lowermost limestone bed is rather conspicuous yellow-brown limestone 2 to 3 feet thick; other beds mostly weather gray; thin shales between the limestones are dark blue to brownish and clayey.
