Hundreds of shallow wells were drilled in the following years into the shale along Lake Erie and then southeastward into western New York.

The Devonian (/ d ɪ ˈ v oʊ n. ən, d ə- d ɛ-/ dih-VOH-nee-ən, də- deh-) is a geologic period and system of the Paleozoic, spanning 60 million years from the end of the Silurian, million years ago (Mya), to the beginning of the Carboniferous, Mya. It is named after Devon, England, where rocks from this period were first studied.

Devonian Period, in geologic time, an interval of the Paleozoic Era that follows the Silurian Period and precedes the Carboniferous Period, spanning between about million and million years ago.

The Devonian Period is sometimes called the “Age of Fishes” because of the diverse, abundant, and, in some cases, bizarre types of these creatures that swam Devonian seas. The Oswayo Formation of Pennsylvania is equivalent to the Upper Devonian Cleveland Shale Member of the Ohio Shale of eastern Ohio (Streel and Traverse,Dennison et al., ).

DEVONIAN SYSTEM, in geology, the name applied to series of stratified fossiliferous and igneous rocks that were formed during the Devonian period, that is, in the interval of time between the close of the Silurian period and the beginning of the Carboniferous; it includes the marine Devonian and an estuarine Old Red Sandstone series of strata.

The name "Devonian" was introduced in by Sir.
