Maricopa County, Citizen Giant

The Phoenix Herald says that a farmer near that place recently discovered a curious relic at his ranch while digging a well. At about nine feet below the surface he came upon the skeleton of a man, the bones of which, however, fell to pieces when he attempted to move them. He has no doubt that this prehistoric citizen was a giant, as the high bones were nearly four feet long and feet were more extensive than those of the proverbial Chicago girl. Under the body was a large and heavy war club in a state of perfect preservation.

The St. Johns Herald, May 12, 1887 Maricopa County
