Strange Horned Race Found in a Preston County, West Virginia Burial Mound

Strange Horned Race Found in a Preston County, West Virginia Burial Mound


"And when Moses came down from the mount Sinai, he held the two tables of the testimony, and he knew not that his face was horned from the conversation of the Lord."

History of Preston County, West Virginia  1882
  Sandy Creek Mound is the third and last in the county and is situated on the old McGillfarm, three miles east of Yellowsville, on a ridge between the forks of Little Sandy.  It was 15 feet high and 25 feet across at the base, being circular in form, and was used as an internment mound.
   From the mound, the writer obtained a strange skull out of the top layer of bones. Digging down, we came upon several skulls in the bottom layer, but could not get them out, as they crumbled to pieces in our hands; finally the top of one was secured, and where the sutures meet on the top of the Caucasian head, they were prevented in this head by a small bone of about one inch in length by one half inch in width, of a peculiar shape.  All of the other skulls possessed this same peculiar bone.  The top of the skull secured and the others that crumbled, showed the heads of a race to have been long and narrow, with low foreheads and long narrow faces.

Marion County, West Virginia Giant's Graves

Marion County, West Virginia Giant's Graves


There are numerous accounts of giant skeletons being discovered in Marion County, West Virginia

Now and Long Ago, 1969
     Near Smithtown, on lands of John C. Malone, is an Indian burying place, located under an overhanging rock, close to White Day Creek.  A  number of bones and skeletons have been taken  from this ancient cemetery, by Dr. Kramer and others.
    In September, 1882, a large skeleton was unearthed in the district by F.M. Fetty and wife.  It was in a sitting position, in a rock grave, walled up with loose stones.  In the summer of 1883, James Faulkner and others found an unusually large skeleton in the district.  It is said to be that of a man whose stature was not less than seven feet, and who evidently belonged to prehistoric times. (Dr. Kramer measured the skeleton and found it to be seven-feet-four inches long, and supposed its owner, when living, must have been almost eight feet tall.

   At Rivesville onc eupon a time three giant skeletons were found while exscavating for a new bridge, and this discovery coupled with other things nearby, indicated to historians that the section was once the home of an ancient tribe of Indians.  Each of the skeletons found was more than seven feet long, and the men themselves must have been several inches taller.

Nashville, Tennessee Built Over an Extensive Indian Graveyard

   Nashville, Tennessee Built Over an Extensive Indian Graveyard  

A considerable portion of the city of Nashville has been built over an extensive Indian graveyard which lay along the valley of Lick Branch. A large number of these graves have been destroyed in the building of North Nashville. In this section of the city I saw a number of them quite exposed during the digging of the cellars of a row of houses, and obtained from them a small stone hatchet and another implement of hard silicious material, beautifully polished. This stone implement is supposed to have been used in the dressing of hides. All around the sulphur spring, traces of the aborigines are manifest in the form of fragments of large pots and various stone implements. It is supposed that the salt lick was frequented by the aborigines for the purpose of killing the buffalo and deer which resorted there, and also for the manufacture of salt. A number of interesting relics are said to have been found in the banks around the sulphur spring; and I myself have gathered a large number of fragments of pottery in this locality, and found them to be uniformly composed of a mixture of crushed river shells and clay. Many of these fragments were nearly one inch in thickness, with an almost imperceptible convexity indicating that they had once formed parts of very capacious vessels. From the markings upon the exterior they appear to have been moulded in baskets made of split cane. An extensive burying-ground lies on the opposite bank of the Cumberland, directly across from the mouth of Lick Branch, surrounding a chain of four mounds. One of these mounds appeared to have been the burying place of a royal family. Two of the smaller ones are thought to have been the general burying-ground of the tribe, whilst the largest one may possibly have been erected as a site for the residence of the chief, or for a temple. In the low alluvial plain, all around these stone graves, are scattered fragments of pottery, arrow-heads, and other stone implements. The caving of the bluff constantly exposes stone graves, skeletons, and relics of various kinds.

A graveyard is located on the same bank of the Cumberland River, about a mile and a half lower down; another at Cockrill’s Spring, two and a half miles from the sulphur spring; another six miles from Nashville, on the Charlotte Turnpike; another about eight miles above, near the mouth of Stone’s River; and still another at Haysborough. I opened a number of stone graves on the farm of Col. W. I). Gale, about three miles from Nashville. At the foot of the hill upon which the residence is situated flows a never-failing spring. The Indians used the hill above the spring as a burying-ground. I exhumed from one grave a small black idol, from another copper ornaments, and from other graves upon the same hill vases of various forms. Many other localities might be enumerated in the immediate vicinity of Nashville. Numerous stone graves are also found on White’s Creek; on the Dickinson Turnpike, nine miles from Nashville; at Sycamore, twenty-two miles from this city, in Cheatham County; on the plantation of Col. Overton, nine miles from Sycamore; in and around Brentwood; at the Boiling Springs; and on the plantation of Mr. Scales.

Ancient Red Haired 14 Year Old Boy is Sacrificed and Body Mummified in a Kentucky Cave

Ancient Red Haired 14 Year Old Boy is Sacrificed and Body Mummified in a Kentucky Cave



Explorations of the Aboriginal Remains of Tennessee: 

       “A human body was found, in the year 1815, in one of the limestone caverns of Kentucky. The skin, bones, and other firm parts were in a state of entire pre servation. The Outer envelope of the body was a deer-skin dressed in the usual way, and, perhaps, subsequently softened by rubbing before being used. The next covering was a deer-skin, the hair of which had been cut away by a sharp instrument. The remnant of the hair and the gashes in the skin nearly resembled the sheared felt of beaver. The next wrapping was of cloth, made of urine doubled and twisted. The innermost wrapping was a mantle of cloth like the preceding, but finished with large brown feathers arranged and fastened with great skill, so as to be capable of guarding the living wearer from wet and cold. The plumage was distinct and entire, and the whole bore a near similitude to the feathered cloaks now worn by the natives of the northwest coast of America. The body was in a squatting posture, with the right arm bent forward, and its hand encircling the right leg. The left arm hung down, with its hand extending partly under the body. The individual, who was a male, did not probably exceed the age of four teen at his death. There was a deep and extensive fracture of the skull near the occiput, which was probably the cause of his death. The skin had sustained little injury. It was of a dusky color, but the natural hue could not be decided with exactness from its appearance at that time. The scalp, with small exceptions, was covered with sorrel and foxy hair. The teeth were white and sound. The hands and feet seem to have been slender and delicate.

Hebrew/Phoenician Script Discovered in a Tennessee Burial Mound

Hebrew/Phoenician Script Discovered in a Tennessee Burial Mound


 Excavation of a burial mound in Loudon County, Tennessee, in 1889 by the Smithsonian Bureau of Ethnology's Mound Survey, Directed by Cyrus Thomas, yeilded what is known as the Bat Creek Stone.  Thomas was adamant that the burial mounds were of Native American origin. Anything that contradicted this theory was destroyed (giant skeletons).  After the stone was discovered, Thomas declared it to be Cherokee script. Had anyone at the time of its discovery hinted that it might be Hebrew, it would have been destroyed. 

In the 1960s, Henriette Mertz and Corey Ayoob  realized that the Bat Creek Stone was ancient Phoenician or Semetic. The Paleo-Hebrew dates to about the first or second century A.D. The five letters  read, from right to left, LYHWD, or "for Judea," or "for the Judeans." 


 They made the plate, the sacred emblem, out of pure gold and engraved on it, like an inscription on a seal: holy to the Lord. 31 Then they fastened a blue cord to it to attach it to the turban, as the Lord commanded Moses.

Ancient Hebrew Burial Cave Described in Giles County, Tennessee

Ancient Hebrew Burial Cave Described in Giles County, Tennessee


This  type of burial cave with a rolled stone at the entrance dates from 200 B.C. - 200 A.D.

At the plantation of Mr. William Sheppard, in the County of Giles, seven and a half miles north of Pulaski, on the east side of the creek, is a cave with several rooms. The first is fifteen feet wide, twenty-seven feet long, and four feet deep; , the upper part is of solid rock. Leading into this cave was a passage which had been so artfully covered that it escaped detection till lately. A flat stone, three feet wide and four feet long, rested upon the ground, and, inclining against the bank, closed part of the mouth. 'Into the part of the mouth left open, had been rolled another stone which closed the whole opening. When these stones were removed and the cave was first entered, the jaw-bone of a child, the arm-bone, the skull, and thigh-bones of a man were found. The whole bottom of the cave was paved with flat stones of a bluish color closely joined together, but of different shapes and sizes. They formed a smooth floor upon which the bones were laid.


Exodus 24:10 This sea of glass was first seen by Moses, Aaron, Nadab and Abihu and the seventy elders of Israel on Mount Sinai, and there “they saw the God of Israel.  Under his feet there was, as it were, a pavement of sapphire, a clear blue as the very heavens.” 



Ancient Auburn Haired, Caucasian Mummies Discovered in a Tennessee Cave

Ancient Auburn Haired, Caucasian Mummies Discovered in a Tennessee Cave



The Natural and Aboriginal History of Tennessee (1823)
 Haywood describes a cave, the aperture into which was very small, near the confines of Smith and Wilson Counties, on the south side of Cumberland River, about twenty-two miles above Cairo, on the waters of Smith’s Fork. The workmen digging in the apartment next the entrance, after removing the dirt, came to another small aperture upon the same level, which they also entered, and found a room twenty-five feet square. This room seemed to have been carefully preserved for the reception and burial of the dead. In it, near the center, were found three human bodies sitting in baskets made of cane, the flesh being entire, but a little shrivelled and hard. The bodies were those of a man, a woman, and a small child. The color of the skin was said to be fair and white, without any admixture of a copper color; their hair auburn and of a fine texture. The teeth were very white; in stature they were about the same as the whites of the present day. The man was wrapped in fourteen dressed deer skins, and over these were wound what those present called blankets. They were made of bark, like those found in the cave in White County. In form the baskets were pyramidal, being larger at the bottom and tapering towards the top. The heads of the skeletons were out side of the blankets.
