I would like to know any information that can be given about these bricks and this one in particular because of its design. I was given this by a relative. They owned a condo in Savannah GA and was watching a renovation happen at a home on Howard St. This brick was found there under the dirt. I was told it is called a Savannah gray, garden, or grave brick. I've seen a combination of all names. I know they were made by slaves as well. Are the markings on the top a sign of the "nine tiles" from the Underground Railroad? Any information is greatly appreciated. I'll do my best to answer any questions. The lighter is for size reference.
