Many ceramic pieces from the excavation have been dated using makers marks and designs, with some dating to prior to the Civil War. Among them is a complete saucer from unit 28 with a makers mark from the Pankhurst Co., Hanley, England. This saucer was manufactured from between 1850 to 1852. Other pieces have been dated to a similar period, as has the unglazed teacup found near the outdoor hearth. These pieces do not directly date the site to that period, as they provide only a terminus post quem, but do allow the possibility that the site was occupied prior to the Civil War. In addition, an architectural historian has indicated that the method of construction of the house at 3314 Lemp is typical of German house construction in the 1840s and 1850s. The neighborhood itself was at one point largely occupied by German immigrants and their descendants. Many German immigrants were strong abolitionists.
John Burroughs student excavated the tea cup in the summer of 2000.
