Analyses of 25 soil cores in westernmost Frazeysburg Valley, Muskingum County, Ohio indicates three likely origins for the uppermost clays, silts, and sand there: stream deposition, colluvial wash from nearby hills, or sedimentation in poorly-drained or swampy shallow depressions. The westernmost portion of the area studied is underlain at the surface mainly by silt and clay. The central portion of the area studied is predominantly clay, reflecting local poorly-drained conditions. The easternmost part of the area studied is composed at the surface of sand and fine gravel, reflecting possible stream origin.
