Hampshire County – SKELETON OF A GIANT


“There has been a great deal of excitement here for several days over the discovery of Indian relics and remains by Warren K. Moorehead, of the Smithsonian Institution… Eleven skeletons were found in a space of 20 feet, one of the most have been the skeleton of a giant, as the lower jawbone was almost twice the ordinary size. The femur was 2 inches larger than a six foot man.”

The Baltimore Sun, Jan 23, 1889, Romney, West Virginia.
