Ancient Giant Humans Grave is Discovered in Athens, New York

An Ancient Giant Humans Grave is Discovered in Athens, New York


      Discovery of a giant Native American's grave in Athens County, Ohio. 

Towanda New York Daily Review, April 19, 1916

The Grave of a Human Giant
    Visitors go up on Pisgah almost every pleasant day.  Mrs. Atwater, who is still making some improvements, is still there and Mr. Vontrell of Mansfield is there and drives the team down occasionally for visitors.  The Athens Historical society sent word to the mountain that they would visit it next Saturday.  They claimed to know of an Indian grave on top that they would open.  The only Indian grave we ever know of there says the Troy Gazette, was on on the south point of the mountain on the farm of Chas. W. Hooker.  A very large thigh bone of a human bieng was dug up 45 years ago at the point near the spring.
   It was of immense size, and on its being shown to Dr. Theodore Wilder, he said it must have belongewd to a man 7 feet high. "There were giants in those days."
