Unfortunately, the field techniques of the time were somewhat crude, by todays standards. 2 in San Saba County were separated by a steep bluff which marked the border between the two counties.

Mc Kern's classification system relied on trait-by-trait comparisons, an simplistic approach that seemed to make sense in the 1930s and 1940s before radiocabon dating was available.

The two collections were recovered in a single days excavation at one of the mounds.
