    In a ditch dug by Joseph Stevens, in the northeast part of Green Township, nearly south of Powers Station, to drain a pond, great numbers of human bones were taken out, many being of unusual size. The jawbones were full of teeth. There was found also what seemed to be a shriveled hand, like that of a little child.
