Ancient Dwarf and Giants Buried Together on a Hill Overlooking the Missouri River

Ancient Dwarf and Giants Buried Together on a Hill Overlooking the Missouri River



The Cook County Herald, Oct. 24, 1903

Prehistoric Cemetery

     Workmen terracing King hill, an old landmark of the northwestern Missouri which is to be converted into a residential suburb of St. Joseph, have unearthed a prehistoric cemetery.  The remains of a race of dwarfs, not allied with any tribe known to have inhabited this territory, and unnaccounted for by Indian legendary repose on the summit of King hill. A feature remarkable in itself and especially marked in connection with the dwarfish remnants of a prehistoric man found on the summit is the discovery of human bones, evidently those of a giant, probably more than seven feet tall and big boned.  Low flat heads with small intelligence and marked animal propensities, characterized this people.  Heavy jaws and strong, well preserved teeth carry the records of their lives forward.  Brutes, human but not inhumane, self reliant, they are savages of a lower order than are known today. Yet, they honored their dead.  Shells such as are found on the banks of many inland streams, plentiful on the sandbars of the Missouri, overlooked by King hill, and the stones of unusual hues, worthless in the commercial marts of today, the play things of children, were deposited in the graves
