The previous giant races that built the mounds across the United States left little about themselves, or it has been suppressed. It would seem that these races were destroyed and left mounds like the ones in Lake County.
This mighty race left crumbling decayed bones and mysteries about their great stature.
According to an Illinois resident one of these skeletons were longer than 8 feet and many others that he had seen and helped in excavations were longer than 7 feet. This comes from a reliable source and long time resident Samuel Miller.
Samual Miller also claimed that the skull of the 8 foot Skeleton was equally large proportionally to the body.
