Default Stigmaria fossil

Found this quite a while back while visiting my grandmother in kentucky. Was metal detecting down on the lake because they had drained a lot of it for the fall/winter. It's a stigmaria fossil which is a tree root.

I love finding things like unusual rocks, pieces of glass, marbles and clay pipe stems when I am detecting.
Nice find there!

How old is that? Iím guessing about 300 million years?
