Jefferson County – Exceptionally Large


Skeleton Unearthed in Redmen’s Graveyard at Lake Ripley, A. E. Morton dug up a human skeleton and is supposed to be the remains of an Indian buried there perhaps 100 or more years ago. The bones are all well preserved and their size indicates that it was an exceptionally large and well proportioned Indian. An unusual formation was the presence of a set of double teeth on the lower jaw. This makes 11 skeletons that have dug up near this spot and confirms the general opinion that an Indian burial ground is located here.
