Giant Human Remains Found North of Chicago

Historical Encyclopedia of Illinois and History of Lake County, 1902
     Of the early history of the region which now embraces Lake County but little can be written. The Mound Builders had occupied it and passed away, leaving no written language and but little even as tradition...These mounds were quite numerous...Excavations...have revealed the crumbling bones of a mighty race. Samual Miller, who has resided in the county since 1835, is authority for the statement that one skeleton which he assisted in unearthing was a trifle more than eight feet in length, the skull being correspondingly large, while many other skeletons measured at least seven feet.
