Black Mesa
Perry Mesa
These historic glyphs below were found on Black Mesa and Perry Mesa. Note the interesting letters "T" and "M". Can we tell where Tom Mao was from by the unusual "T" and "M"? Was he a shepherd, miner, cowboy, or land surveyor? What happened on the monument in 1917 that caused him to go there? Please contact the webmaster if you have any information about this person or have seen a similar historic glyph. The 1940 Census may have a widow named Mao with 2 children (lines 60-62).
