Huge Indian at Walpole

“During the construction of the Cheshire Railroad several human Skeletons were exhumed, supposed to be Indians, and among them was one, buried under a flat stone, answering, by its huge proportions, the description formerly given to Philip [one of the known local Indians, reportedly involved in the attack on Kilburn]. These bones were procured and wired together by one Dr. RObbins, of Bellows Falls, and are now in the possession of his family.”
