Giant Iroquois Indians War Chief Uncovered in Livingston County, New York

Giant Iroquois Indians War Chief Uncovered in Livingston County, New York




History of Livingston County, New York - 1876

      Some years ago the remains of a giant Indian were found not far from Long Point on the Groveland side of Conesus Lake. The head lay in a turtle-shell, and by the side were found implements of war and other evidences of a noted burial. For some reason that has now escaped me, I have associated this grave with the great war-chieftain referred to in the text, though most likely without much reason.

Giants Discovered Burial Mounds in Northern Ohio

Giants Discovered Burial Mounds in  Northern Ohio




History of Portage County Ohio, 1885 

     When the first band of pioneers to the Western Reserve arrived at the mouth of Conneaut Creek, July 4, 1796, they discovered several mounds and could easily trace the outline of a large cemetery then overgrown with forest. Explorations were subsequently made and some gigantic skeletons exhumed from mounds which stood on the site of Conneaut, Ashtabula County. The frames and jaw-bones were those of giants and could not have belonged to the race of Indians then inhabiting any portion of this country. Several years ago a burial mound was opened in Logan County, from which three skeletons were taken. The frame of one was in an excellent state of preservation and measured nearly seven feet from the top of the skull to the lower part of the heel. In 1850 a mound lying on the north bank of Big Darby about one mile northwest of Plain City, in Union County, was opened and several massive skeletons taken therefrom. The lower jaw-bones, like those found at Conneaut, could be easily fitted over the jaw of a very large man, outside the flesh. These bones-and they are usually large wherever found-indicate that the Mound Builders were a gigantic race of beings, fully according in size with the colossal remains they have left behind them.

Giant Sioux Indian Skeletons Removed from an Illinois Burial Mound

Giant Sioux Indian Skeletons Removed from an Illinois Burial Mound






Fifth Annual Report of The Bureau of Ethnology of the Smithsonian Institution.

       "Near the original surface of the ground, several feet north of the center, where the many decayed skeletons of some six or eight individuals from the infant to the adult. Near the original surface, some 10 to 12 feet from the center, on the lower side, was discovered lying at full length on its back, an unusually large skeleton, the length being something over 7 feet. It was distinctly traceable though it crumbled to pieces immediately after removal from the hard earth in which it was encased. With it were three thin, crescent shaped pieces of roughly hammered native copper, respectively 6, 8 and 10 inches in length, with small holes along the convex margin; also a number of elongate copper beads, made by rolling together thin sheets and a chert lance head 11 inches long; the latter was placed near the left thigh. Around the neck were the remains of a necklace of bear teeth. Lying across the thighs were dozens of small copper beads, evidently formed by rolling slender strips into small rings."



Nephilim Giant's Graveyard Uncovered in Northern Ohio


Nephilim Giant's Graveyard Uncovered in Northern Ohio







HISTORY  OF  ASHTABULA  COUNTY, 1878


The mounds that were situated in the eastern part of what is now the village of Conneaut and the extensive burying ground near the Presbyterian Church, appear to have had no connection with the burying places of the Indians. They doubtless refer to a more remote period and are the relics of an extinct race, of whom the Indians had no knowledge. These mounds were of comparatively small size, and of the same general character of those that are widely scattered over the country. What is most remarkable concerning them is that among the quantity of human bones they contain, there are found specimens belonging to men of large stature, and who must have been nearly allied to a race of giants. Skulls were taken from these mounds, the cavities of which were of sufficient capacity to admit the head of an ordinary man, and jaw-bones that might be fitted on over the face with equal facility. The bones of the arms and lower limbs were of the same proportions, exhibiting ocular proof of the degeneracy of the human race since the period in which these men occupied the soil which we now inhabit. These mounds were, doubtless, held in great veneration in the ages to which they refer, not only as the depositories of their dead, but probably as the altars where their religious rites and sacrifices were performed, which may account for the origin of the custom which so universally prevails among christian nations, of burying their dead under or in the immediate vicinity of the churches. It is certain that, on opening the mounds, they are found to contain a quantity of charcoal, which may be the remains of the sacrificial wood, and fragments of a strong earthen ware, which may be the remnants of the vessels in which their incense was offered.

The ancient burying grounds referred to, situated a little west of the site where the brick church now stands, presents an object of deeper interest perhaps than any other relic remaining in the neighborhood. It occupied an area of about four acres of land, extending northward from the bank of the creek, near the brick church, to Main street, and westward to the present residence of Mr. Horatio Thurber, and cresting, with the exception of an angle in the south line, in compliance with the course of the bank, the form of an oblong square. It appeared to have been accurately surveyed into lots, running from the north to the south, and to exhibit all the order and propriety of arrangement deemed requisite to constitute christian burial. 

If the observation be just that the character of a people may be estimated by the order and taste displayed in their places of sepulchre, we shall be led to judge favorably of that people whose remains have long mouldered beneath these graves. On the first examination of the ground by the settlers they found it covered with trees not distinguishable from the surrounding forest, except an opening near the center containing a single butternut, which still remains to mark the spot. The graves were distinguished by slight depressions in the surface of the earth disposed in straight rows, with the intervening spaces, or alleys, cover[ing] the whole area within the boundaries before specified, which was estimated to contain from two to three thousand graves. These depressions, on a thorough examination made by Esq. Aaron Wright, as early as 1800, were found invariably to contain human bones, blackened with time, which on exposure to the air soon crumbled to dust.

The imagination in pained in endeavoring to penetrate the mystery in which the history of this people is shrouded. That the multitude whose mortal remains people these mansions of the dead, once existed, that they lived, died and were buried, is sufficiently obvious; but, of their origin, language, religion, or political and social condition, we can know absolutely nothing.

It will naturally be inferred that a burying ground of the character above described, must have been located amidst a populous district, and that the surrounding country has once been filled with a multitude of human inhabitants.

Evidence in confirmation of this fact is likewise obtained from the traces of ancient cultivation observed by the first settlers on the lands in the vicinity, which although covered with forest, exhibited signs of having once been thrown up into squares and terraces, and laid out into gardens.

8 Foot Giant Human Mummy Exhibited in Japan

8 Foot Giant Human Mummy Exhibited in Japan


The Bourbon news., December 04, 1914
Giant Mummy in Japan.
One of the most interesting exhibits at the Aisho exposition held at Tokyo was a giant mummy enclosed in a large, square coffin. The figure measured about eight feet in height. This relic was obtained by a Japanese explorer at a Buddhist temple in the province of Kiangsi. Experts support the claim that the mummy is that of a famous monk who lived at the beginning of the Christian era.

INDIAN MUMMY
Dug Out of a Cellar on Elkwell Creek, Kentucky 
Skeleton of a Man Eight Feet High
Lexington, Kentucky., Nov. 9. - John Winter, of Bell county, last week, while digging a cellar at his home, on Elkwell creek, excavated a giant mummy. The mummy was that of a man eight feet high, and wrapped in a winding cloth of skins. It was placed in a canoe like coffin, and crumbled away upon being exposedthe the air. At the head of the giant were a stone hatchet and a few cooking utensils and a large hollow stone, which presumably contained
food. At his feet was a skin shield, which had also crumbled to dust.

Gigantic Remains Of Iroquois Chief Red Jacket's Mother is Uncovered in New York

Gigantic Remains Of Iroquois Chief  Red Jacket's Mother is Uncovered in New York




The Sun, Dec 08 1893 
   The mother of Red Jacket was a woman of gigantic frame being between six and seven feet tall.  On Monday last, workman employed in excavating for the foundation of a building the Lake Keuka Navigation Company is about to erect on the lake shore near Branenport on the spot where it is alleged that Red Jacket was born and where his mother died ande buried, unearthed a human skeleton of giant size and in a remarkably well preserved state.  Investigation trevealed that the remains were those of an Indiana and a female.  The believers in the Lake Keuka theory of the Red Jacket birthplace and burial place of his mother are convinced that the skeleton of the giant Indian woman uncovered at Brtanchpoty is that of Red Jacket's mother, and have arranged to re inter it in that locality and place a mon ument over it inscribed in accordance with that belief.

Ohio Adena Skeleton Found in an England Burial Mound

Ohio Adena Skeleton Found in an England Burial Mound


The Adena mound builders of the Ohio valley have the same rounded or a brachycephalic skull with  prominent brow-ridges and powerful jaws as those the Beaker People of the British Isles. Some of the Adena burial in Ohio were also in stone cists.


Giant skull from the Ohio Valley with the same unique shape as those found in the burial mounds across the British Isles associated with the Beaker People.


The Evolution Of An English Town 1922

A complete skeleton in a stone cist is now lying in a glass case in the museum. It was discovered accidentally by a farmer between Appleton-le-Moor and Spaunton. He had decided to remove a huge stone that had been an obstacle when ploughing, and in doing so found that he had removed the top stone of a cist belonging to the early Bronze Age. The man has a round or brachycephalic skull with the prominent brow-ridges and powerful jaws of the Celtic (Beaker People) people, and his right arm was arranged so that the hand was beneath the skull. By his left hand was the food vessel that is now placed on the left side of the skull, and at his feet are a number of small bronze studs or rivets.
These Bronze Age men seem to have had a very general belief in the spirit world, for the dead warrior was buried with his weapons as well as food, so that he might be sustained while he hunted in the other world with the spirit of his favorite ax or spear. The museum contains examples of socketed bronze celts and spear heads, as well as an infinite variety of arrowheads, flint knives, stone hammers and celts, and also colored beads and other ornaments.
    

10 Foot Giant Human Nephilim Remains Uncovered Near Akron, Ohio

10 Foot Giant Human Nephilim Remains Uncovered Near Akron, Ohio





The Evening Times, September 8, 1899 
     A find of incalculable value to science has been made at a stone quarry three miles northwest of the city. The find consists of a skeleton of a gigantic man, believed to have lived in prehistoric times and relics of a time when civilization was just beginning to dawn. In clearing away refuse quarrymen found the almost complete skeleton of a man. The skull was entire and the lower jawbone of such proportion as to easily fit over the outside of the jaw of the largest modern man. Ribs were found and also fingers and the larger pelvis bone, which was broken in two. It is believed the man must have been at least ten feet in height. In addition to the remains of the human being there were found deer antlers, bears' claws, many kinds of teeth, remains of foxes and several lower jawbones resembling those of a wolf. Pieces of very rude pottery were scattered about and a mortar and pestle were found.

Fossilized Skull of a 10 Foot Giant in Missouri, Deemed the "Missing Link."

Fossilized Skull of a 10 Foot Giant in Missouri, Deemed the "Missing Link."




 L'abelle de la Nouvelle-Orleans, December 8, 1900

"The fossils of three human beings evidently prehistoric giants, were found near Monteseno, Mo., the other day by C. H. Beehler, a farmer, at the depth of forty feet. The size of the skulls indicates that the bodies must have been at least ten feet high and the bones, resembling those of a human skeleton, seem to bear out this theory. Beehler has quite a collection of fossil relics which he has found at various times in this vicinity which is alive with them. He is confident that he has discovered the missing link and intends to submit his find to the professors of Washington University in St. Louis to see if they sustain his theory. Fossils of mastodons and animals extinct for centuries have been found in this vicinity by people who were plowing or digging wells. It seems to be a regular graveyard for 40 miles around for prehistoric bones which indicate the enormous size of the animals which once roamed the land." 

8 Foot Giant Nephilim Skeleton Found in Kentucky Cave

8 Foot Giant Nephilim Skeleton Found in Kentucky Cave




The Evening News, Oct. 14, 1927 

     The strange story of how four men found an eight-foot skeleton of a man in a recess of a cavern is vouched for here by friends of the quartet, who say they have no reason to doubt the integrity of those concerned. John Nelson and his three sons were exploring Harlan Cave when they came upon the skeleton, over eight feet in length, according to Nelson. Nelson said he believed it was an Indian's bones. Arrow flints and trinkets were found about the body. Old Indians living in this vicinity said it was the custom of the tribes to bury medicine men and chiefs alone. They believe the skeleton was that of some great man of an ancient tribe.

Ancient Race of Giants Uncovered in Urbana, Illinois

Ancient Race of Giants Uncovered in Urbana, Illinois


One of the largest burial mounds in Illinois was the Powell Mound that was part of the Cahokia Group


Urbana Democrat, September 11, 1914
BONES OF GIANTS FOUND WEST OF URBANA, ILLINOIS

      The workmen at the sewerage disposal plant west of Urbana unearthed two skeletons Thursday afternoon of unusually large proportions. The steam shovel employed in the excavation work tore into the bones and broke a number of the pieces but enough has been found to piece out enough of the bodies to show that the original possessors of the framework were of unusual build. The bones were discovered about two feet from the surface of the ground between the soil and the gravel, immediately under the soil. Charles McDargh, authority on and collector of such things, went to the place Friday and secured the bones and will piece them together to make as near the complete skeleton as is possible. Mr. McDargh was interviewed by the Democrat as to the possible origin of the bones Friday morning. He stated that he had never seen so massive a specimen as the one secured with but one exception. While in the Chattanooga museum he had seen the parts of the skeleton of a person taken from the Tennessee river which measured pretty well up to the one secured Thursday. The Southern specimen was said to have measured approximately 7 1/2 feet high. These are of a race supposed to be mound builders, as they are buried their dead very near the surface.

      Mr. McDargh has not decided as yet whether the specimens recently acquired is of that period or of some enormous Indian. The teeth are all in place in the jawbone, which measured 5 inches and is 7 inches long. The teeth are in a good state of preservation, though worn down considerably, indicating the age of the possessor. All the bones secured are of unusual size and the man was undoubtedly a large fellow. If the men are of the same race as the one found in Chattanooga they probably lived some three or four thousand years ago, as it has been determined that the southern gentlemen was that old. As soon as the bones were discovered Sheriff Faulkner was called upon to take charge but he felt that it would be an usurpation of authority and suggested that the township trustees were the proper ones to take the case in hand. M. B. Saxbe was not notified but no action was taken. All thought of any recent interment has been abandoned, as the bones show clearly the long time they have lain under the surface. When first discovered the workmen at the plant flocked to the place and all sorts of theories and conjectures were advanced but it was finally decided that the bones were of ancient and not recent origin.

Hieroglyphs With A Biblical Quote Found In Nephilim Giant's Grave in Ohio

Hieroglyphs With A Biblical Quote Found In Nephilim Giant's Grave in Ohio
Tablet removed from a burial mound in Muskinghum County, Ohio that contained skeletons over 9 feet in length.  With them was this tablet with a quote from the Bible.

History of Muskingum County, Ohio 1882


Iam the Alpha and the Omega, saith the 
Lord God, which is and which was, and which is 
to come, the Almighty ; giving first, -power on 
earth; secondly, the spirit, added from heaven 
without ending. 

" The heavens declare the glory of God,''"' as a 
seal of His -power to bless, first, with life, and 
forever, these servants.


I photographed for Dr. J. F. Everhart an engraved stone, said to have been exhumed
from a mound in Brush Creek Township, and that I have this day identified the negative
that I then took, in the Gallery No.1 Main street, Zanesville, Ohio ; that when I was about
to print the picture for Dr. Everhart I assured him I could, by retouching the negative,
make the characters on the stone appear plainer, and that Dr. Everhart objected,
saying he wanted nothing more or less than an exact copy of the stone, with- out any
alterations whatever, and that I am prepared to identify the stone from which the negative
referred to was taken, and that there was no sign of any recent engraving or marking on
the engraved side of the stone.

The discovery that " Alpha and Omega " are the first two characters of the inscription
 was as startling as it is true. And the connection with the Great    Pyramid, as indicated
 by the  corresponding signs, " the angle stones," found onlyOn the Pyramids, and 
upon this   gravestone, as far as now known, began to loom    up, and Mr. Smyth's 
three keys for the opening of the Great Pyramid seemed to    have a bearing upon this
 inscription ; so that they are here quoted for the  benefit of the reader. 
The inscription on the tablet taken from the mound in Brush Creek Township is 
composed of three different forms of ideation, which are made out to be Demotic  
or Enchorial, Hieroglyphic and Greek. The Demotic, according to Herodotus, 
had ceased to be used 525 B. C. ; the Hieroglyphics had ceased to  be used about the third
 century, A. D., and Greek  characters were then used as ideations. The inscription,
 therefore, must d^te back to the     time when one of these classes ceased to be used,
 which was 425 B. C.

A GIANT MUMMY
Discovery of an Ancient Corpse on Elkwell Creek, Kentucky
The Body That of a Man Eight Feet Tall - Interesting Relics of Great Value and Unearthed-People Usually Engaged in Digging Up the Vicinity.

 While digging a cellar near Elkwell Creek, John Winter excavated a giant mummy and discovered several interesting relics of great value. The find has created excitement here and crowds are flocking to the scene. The mummy is that of a man of great stature, being over eight feet tall. It was wrapped in a winding sheet of skins and carefully sealed in a canoe shaped coffin. In a few minutes after being exposed to the air, the mummy commenced to crumble away, but by careful handling Winter has succeeded in keeping intact his remarkable discovery. At the head of this prehistoric giant was a tremendous stone ax, only such as could have been wielded by a man of wonderful strength. It is a formidable looking instrument and it is supposed that it was used as the giant's weapon of war. In the coffin were a few pieces of what appeared to be cooking utensils and a huge hollowed stone that probably contained food for the dead. It held also a large, heavy spear flint point and a shield made of skins. After removing the mummy and coffin, Winter continued the search and a few inches deeper discovered a handsomely carved pipe, an ax-head of curious shape and several broken pieces of crockery. Many of Winter's neighbors are digging up the ground around the spot where the body of the dead man was found, in search of additional curiosities."

Ancient Giant Human Remains Discovered on Vashon, Island, Washington

Ancient Giant Human Remains Discovered on Vashon, Island, Washington



Spokane Daily Chronicle, June 22, 1908
      While digging a posthole on the premises of S. S. Heath at Burton, Vashon Island, the other day Charles Christman found the skeleton of a giant, states a west side report. It measured 7 feet 6 inches in height and all the bones are large in proportion to their length, showing the person to have been a man of great weight. The skull had a transverse diameter of 7 1/2 inches and is 21 inches in circumference. The skeleton was but 18 inches below the surface and had evidently lain in the ground for many years. Heath and Christman propose to sell the skeleton. All the bones are in a good state of preservation. The settlers are at a loss to account for the skeleton. Secretary
