The skull referred to is a skeleton of a man over seven feet tall
Game Warden Russell has added another specimen to his museum in the shape of a skull of an Indian Giant. Four men from Pembine, namely Joe Gravel, Wm. Boughtette, Geo. Mullin and Mike Tobin were fishing on the minominee river at the site of an old Indian cemetery, and each year the river is washing the bank away, so the skeletons exposed, they having found three skeletons this trip. The skull referred to is a skeleton of a man over seven feet tall, they dug a hole and buried all the bones except the skull which they brought to Pembine, where they presented it to Mr. Russell for his museum. Mr. Gravels says the cemetery was used before the beginning of the cutting of the pine timber, which is over 50 years ago. It is located just below Pemmene Falls, and is T.35, N. R.22 E.1.
The article reports the discovery of a skull of an Indian Giant in an old Indian cemetery by a group of fishermen on the minominee river. The fact that they found three skeletons during their fishing trip is an interesting aspect, indicating the potential presence of a larger population of giants in the area. The location of the cemetery just below Pemmene Falls and the fact that it was used before the cutting of the pine timber, over 50 years ago, adds to the accuracy and authenticity of the report.
However, it is important to note that the article does provide first hand eyewitness accounts to support the claim that the skull belonged to a man over seven feet tall. It is unclear if the skeleton was fully intact or if any measurements were taken. It is also unclear if the skull would be accessible for further analysis.
Overall, the article presents an intriguing account of a discovery of a giant skeleton, but we need further scientific evidence and analysis.
