In this area I rarely see an Eastern Box with the highly marked carapace. Usually the are a olive/brown with sometime just a hint of an underlying pattern.
could be three-toed box turtle

Found another today and after a little patience I got a look and the hind legs...seems you were right dougrs...thanks again.
