Ancient Race of Giant Humans Described in Connecticut

Ancient Race of Giant Humans Described in Connecticut




The Daily State Journal., May 06, 1873,  
From Our Travelling Correspondent, Woodstock, Connecticut
     This county was originally settled by Germans from Pennsylvania, who were a plain, and industrious people, and thrifty farmers. In the early years they suffered many cruelties and hardships from the Indians and French. Colonel Peter Muhlenburg, afterwards a general in the Revolution, was a Lutheran minister, and distinguished himself by bravery and cool valor; he settled in this county from Pennsylvania, when quite young. The bones and skeletons of Indian giants of great size have been dug up in this county, comparing with those mentioned in Captain Smith’s history

Ancient Pygmy Race Described in West Virginia

Ancient Pygmy Race Described in West Virginia


Depiction of a pygmy that was discovered within an Ohio Adena burial mound. There are 5 separate historical accounts of mass graves of pygmy graves in Ohio, Tennessee and West Virginia


Chronicles of Border Warfare in West Virginia 1895
In this state too, have been found burying grounds, in which the
skeletons seem all to have been those of pigmies: the graves, in which
the bodies had been deposited, were seldom three feet in length; yet
the teeth in the skulls prove that they were the bodies of persons of
mature age.

Upon the whole there cannot be much doubt, that America was once
inhabited by a people, not otherwise allied to the Indians of the
present day, than that they were descendants of him, from whom has
sprung the whole human family.

Many of the antiquities discovered in other parts of the country, show
that the arts once flourished to an extent beyond what they have ever
been known to do among the Indians. The body found in the saltpetre
cave of Kentucky, was wrapped in blankets made of linen and interwoven
with feathers of the wild turkey, tastefully arranged. It was much
smaller than persons of equal age at the present day, and had
yellowish hair. In Tennessee many walls of faced stone, and even
walled wells have been found in so many places, at such depths and
under such circumstances, as to preclude the idea of their having been
made by the whites since the discovery by Columbus.

Giant Human Mummy Found In Pennsylvania Burial Mound

  Giant Human Mummy Found In Pennsylvania Burial Mound


The Sun, Dec., 8 1893
9 Foot Mummy Discovered In Pennsylvania Burial Mound
Dr W. J. Holland, curator of the Carnegie museum, Pittsburg and his assistant, Dr. Peterson, a few days ago opened up a mound of the ancient race that inhabited this section and secured the skeleton of a man who when in the flesh was between eight and nine feet in height, says a Greensburg (pa.) dispatch to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
    This mound which was originally about 100 feet longer and more than 12 feet high has been somewhat worn down by time.  It is on the J. R. Secrist farm in South Huntington township.  This farm has been in the Secrist name for more than a century.

 The most interesting feature in the recent excavation was the mummified torso of the human body, which the experts figured was laid to rest at least 400 years ago.  Portions of the bones dug up and the bones in the legs, Prof, Peterson declares are those of a person between eight and nine feet in height.  The scientists figure that that this skeleton was the framework of a person of the prehistoric race that inhabited this section before the American Indians.

    The torso and the portions of the big skeleton were shipped to the Carnegie museum.  Drs. Holland and Peterson supervised the exploration on the Secrist mound with the greatest of care.  The curators believe the man whose skeleton they secured belonged to the mound builders class

Skeleton Found of a Man Over Nine Feet High With an Enoumous Skull
      Maple Creek, Wisconsin, Dec. 19 - One of the three recently discovered mounds in this town has been opened.  In it was found the skeleton of a man of gigantic size.  The bones measured from head to foot over nine feet and were in a fair state of preservation.  The skull was as large as a half bushel measure.  Some finely tempered rods of copper and other relics were lying near the bones.   The mound from which these relics were taken is ten feet high and thirty long and varies from six to eight feet in width.

Skeletons of Stone Age Men

Are Dug Prehistoric Inhabitants of Nutmeg State Were Flat Heads of Great Strength and Huge Teeth.
      BRIDGEPORT, Conn., Aug. 19. Two complete skeletons, believed to have belonged to inhabitants of the earth in the Stone Age, are said to have been unearthed by a band of archaeologists, headed by Prof. Warren King Moorehcad, near the Housntonic River, at Laurel Beach.
      The professor and his assistants have been digging in this section for some time and claim discovery of a number of indications that the section was once inhabited by a forgotten
race.
      Both skeletons appear to be well preserved. The bones are rough, denoting great strength, the skulls are flat and both possess a perfect set of teeth of unusual size.
      Prof. Moorelieud said It was his belief the bodies were buried In salt water sevcral thousand years ago, which accounts for their preservation.  He also expressed the hope that he and his assistants would soon locate a burial ground of a tribe of  an ancient race.

Giant Human Petrified Discovered Near Fresno, California

Petrified Giant Human  Discovered Near Fresno, California



Arizona Republican., April 12, 1892
Big Injun Is He     
     The petrified man, now on exhibition at the Central hotel in this city, undoubtedly ranks high among the curiosities occasioned by a freak of nature. He was discovered December 12, 1890, about sixty miles from Fresno, California. The marsh in which he was found seems full of petrified wood, clam shells, whalebone, and in fact, everything subject to petrifaction seems to have been magically touched by the solidifying element.
      Many professional and scientific men have closely scrutinized this petrified man, made. Minute investigation of his entire anatomy and universally agrees it is not the work of man. Leaving all circumstantial evidence out of the question the fossil of itself has the absolute
symmetrical anatomical relations that art would absolutely fail to imitate.
Any one wiio is acquainted with fossils and the laws of petrification must pronounce this specimen genuine  under the same laws and conditions solids, fish, shells and other objects, both animaland vegetable, that have turned to stone.
