Chicago Daily Tribune, July 20, 1892 Two More Skeletons Unearthed Relics the West Fork Historical Society Will Exhibit at the Fair
Columbus, Ind., July 19. - [Special] – The West Fork Historical Society has unearthed two female skeletons from the mound of of which the large male skeleton was taken a about a year ago. It is said one of these skeletons possesses a remarkably fine specimen of Caucasian skull and the other one of Mongolian and Caucasian characteristics. Two pieces of jewelry were also found, one a six-pointed star, one inch from tip to tip. Each of the six points has thirteen small stars, so small as to almost require a microscope to discern them, while in the center of the piece is a full moon, not discernible without a glass. The other relic is a copper cross of peculiar shape, covered with figures of birds and beasts.

The society has been offered liberal prices for the relics, but will not sell. James R. Duffin, President of the association, will exhibit these skulls, if they can be preserved, and the relics at the Columbian Exposition next years.
