      A Giant-In 1872, in prospecting for coal in Ohio County, about a mile from Rockport, the complete skeleton of a human body of gigantic size was found, 6 feet below the surface. The lower jaw-bone, when fitted over the lower portion of a man’s face in the party of explorers, completely covered it; the thigh bone, from hip-bone to the knee, was 42 inches long, and the fore-arm bone from the wrist to elbow measured 22 inches. This would indicate a giant over 10 feet high.
