Collins Historical Sketches of Kentucky V. II, History of Kentucky, 1874 (Madison county)
Ancient cemetery- A race of giants on five high points on Caldwell Campbell’s farm, and on a farm of Samual and Walker Madison, adjoining, 8 miles southwest of Richmond, are burial grounds of pre-historic inhabitants- in all embracing fully 3 acres. On one part, about one and a half acres, have been discovered the skeletons of giants- The femur, tibia, skull, and inferior maxillary bones so large, when compared with the size of the late John Campbell (himself 6 feet 4 inches high) as to indicate a race 7 to 8 feet high. John Campbell slipped the inferior jaw bone of one entirely over his own, flesh and all.
