Antiquities-A Giant-From a mound on the farm of Eden Burrowes, near Franklin, were exhumed, in may, 1841, at a depth of over 12 feet, several human skeletons. One, of extraordinary dimensions, was found between what appeared to have been two logs, covered with a wooden slab. Many of the bones were entire. Giant Man
The under jaw-bone was large enough to fit over the jaw, flesh and all, of any common man of the present day.
The thigh-bones were full six inches longer than those of any man in Simpson County.
Teeth, arms, ribs, and all, gave evidence of a giant of a former race.
Around his neck was a string of 120 copper beads, and one beads of pure silver, all perfectly preserved. Another skeleton, of smaller dimensions, had around his neck a string of ivory beads, about 100 in number. The string, which had held the beads, was still apparent, though time had destroyed its consistence.
