The Kenyon Member of the Mt. Simon Sandstone (Templeton, 1950, p. 154).
Named for Kenyon School, De Kalb County.
The type section of the Kenyon Member of the Mt. Simon Sandstone is located 3.25 miles northwest of the school for which it is named in De Kalb County. It is the interval from 2975-3105 feet deep (sample set 1301) in the same boring as the Crane Member.
The Kenyon Member overlies the Crane Member of the Mt. Simon Sandstone.
Extent and thickness
The Kenyon Member is 34-130 feet thick.
Where less than 80 feet thick it consists of coarse-grained sandstone containing small quartz pebbles, but elsewhere it is conglomeratic sandstone interbedded with nonconglomeratic layers.
