Erie County – TEN FEET HIGH


Skeletons of Men Ten Feet High Found in a Cave.

“Why, this man was ten or twelve feet high!” “Thunder and lightning!” exclaimed farmer Porter in astonishment. The first speaker, who has won local distinction as a scientist, reiterated his assertion.

J. H. Porter has a farm near Northeast, not many miles from where the Lake Shore railroad crosses the New York state boundary line. Early this week some workmen in Mr. Porter’s employ came upon the entrance to a cave and on entering it found heaps of human bones within. Many skeletons were complete and specimens of the find were brought out and exhibited to the naturalists and archaeologists of the neighborhood. They informed the wondering bystanders that the remains were unmistakably those of giants.

In 1885, a discovery was made on a farm near Northeast, Pennsylvania, that has since been shrouded in mystery and disbelief. Workmen in the employ of J.H. Porter stumbled upon a cave entrance that led to a remarkable find: heaps of human bones belonging to individuals who were purportedly 10 to 12 feet tall. One of the individuals who examined the remains was a local scientist, who confirmed the astonishing height of the individuals.

This account, published in the Philadelphia Times, is just one of many historical reports of giant skeletons being found all over the world. While some may dismiss these accounts as mere legend or exaggeration, it’s important to remember that these reports come from reputable sources and were published in newspapers and journals of the time.

Despite the existence of these accounts, many have tried to cover up or discredit the existence of giants. Skeptics may argue that the remains found were simply the result of a hoax or a misidentification of normal human bones. However, it’s hard to ignore the overwhelming evidence of these finds, and the fact that they challenge our preconceived notions of what is possible.

As a dedicated researcher, I believe that it’s important to explore the evidence and uncover the truth about giants and their place in our history. These discoveries offer a glimpse into a world that was vastly different from our own, and could provide invaluable insights into the past. We should not dismiss these accounts without further investigation, but instead approach them with an open mind and a willingness to challenge our assumptions.
