Lawrence County – Man of Large Size
SKELETON OF A MAN OF LARGE SIZE
Above the mouth of Big Point Creek there is a river bottom extending up the Louisa River about a mile. There are mounds covered with large trees when first seen by white men. The original public highway up the Big Sandy was laid out on the north side of the mound. In matching those public road the mound was cut sand the skeletons of a man of large size was found. It was enclosed in a sort of rude box made by placing flat thin river stones about and over it.
