12 Foot Giant Human Uncovered in Jefforsonville, Kentucky



New York Times April 2, 1872
Gigantic Human Remains Found
 A letter from Kern County, California reports that in digging a grave on the old banks of the Kern River, not long since, there was found a human skeleton seven foot, 5 and a half inches in length.  The account says there was placed with it, of eleven flint arrow heads and spear heads, and that.the skull was much larger than the ordinary size of craniums moving around at the present day. A full-grown person placed his head inside the skull, The Louisville Courier Journal, however, tells a bigger story thus- "Workmen in the new fire cistern, in Jeffersonville, Kentucky exhumed, twelve foot from the surface, a part of the skeleton of a giant at least  twelve feet high. The skull was badly broken by the workmen, but sufficient of the jaw and face bones were saved to show that it was the remains of a monstrous sized human being,” A shinbone was dug up which measured near three feet in height.”
