8 Foot Giant Humans Unearthed in Monongahela City, PA
"The skeleton of giant, eight feet high, has been exhumed from the farm of Mr. Colvin, near Monongehela City, Pa. The Pittsburg Chronicle says: "From the position of the bones in the vault under the stone, it is supposed the bodies were buried in a sitting position, the skull bones and those of the trunk being all in a heap, while those of the legs were scattered along towards the foot of the vault. At the foot, also of many of these graves were found various articles of ornaments of exquisite workmanship, denoting a greater skill than usually belonged to the Indians, together with crockery and war-like implements. The graves in the vicinity number several hundred and go to show that the field was at one time an extensive burying ground."
