I found this very old benchmark from 1905 located on top of a large boulder just off of Topsy Grade Rd and near a historic site (with historical marker nearby) named Topsy.

This benchmark is in good condition and not located in the NGS database.
It has the designator of 7 stamped on the top of the face and the elevation of 4119 and the year 1905 stamped on it as well.

The boulder this benchmark is imbedded in is about 15 feet west of Topsy Grade Rd and the only prominent boulder in the area.
