Near Knox seven or eight feet


The Starke County Ledger states that a mound near Knox, which  has recently been opened, contained several skeletons of human beings who were once of great stature. It is estimated that they must have been some seven or eight feet tall while living. Among the other interesting things discovered were several copper arrowheads.
