Bones of a Prehistoric Man Uncovered in a Cass County Gravel Pit


Nothing to indicate the Spot Was Used by Indians for a Burial Place


Special to the Journal.

Fargo, N. D., Jan. 23–Frank Canier was digging for a gravel pit near Chaffee in this county and unearthed a skeleton that measures almost seven feet in length. The bones are thought to be those of some prehistoric man, as there was nothing to indicate that the location had ever been an Indian burying ground. The teeth were all sound except the front ones, which were somewhat worn. The skeleton on exhibition at Chaffee.

The Minneapolis Journal, Jan 23, 1903
