Indian Giant Uncovered at Eagle Lake, Near Warsaw in Kosciusko County, Indiana



Burial Mound Overlooking Eagle Lake In Warsaw (Kosciusko County) Indiana

Cincinnati Commercial, October 7, 1888
BONES OF AN INDIAN GIANT
     A member of the Logan Grays, the crack military organization of Logansport that held its encampment this year at Eagle Lake, near Warsaw stopped in this city on his way home from camp and told the following story of the discovery by the party of a cavern on an island in Eagle Lake; A.M. Jones rowed to a small island near the southwest corner of the lake and began digging for worms.
      He turned over a large, flat stone near a tree, and under it was a small hole, which was an entrance to a cave. Jones called the boys up, and we began an exploration of the cavern, which proved to be twenty-five feet long, fifteen feet wide, and eight feet deep. The walls are of a natural formation of stone, branching out at the middle so as to form two rooms.
In the front room was the skeleton of a man six feet nine inches long. The bones were very large, indicating great strength. Along one side of the cave runs a small stream of water, as pure as crystal. In the front of it forms a small pool. In this were a number of bones.

Large Skeleton Removed From a Sand Hill Overlooking the Eel River in Indiana

Large Skeleton Removed From a Sand Hill Overlooking the Eel River in Indiana






History of Clay County, Indiana
Sandy Knoll, about a mile west of the Eel River, east of a line from Coffee to Howesville, has attracted more attention, as such, than any other, or perhaps, all other points in the county. All of the skeletons discovered were of gigantic proportions, a stature of seven feet, or thereabouts, all in a sitting posture, with fractured femurs, or thigh bones, a phenomenon unexplained. John B. Poe, one of the early pioneers, himself six feet in height and proportionally developed, who made excavations and tests, found the tibia (bone of the lower leg) in all cases from one to two inches longer than his own, and could place the maxillary (lower jaw bone) over his own, flesh and all.

Giant Skeletons Unearthed

     Wabash, Ind., March 29. - The workmen of the Pan-Handle railroad gravel train unearthed the skeletons of what appears to have been a human giant in the pit in Noble township, Cass county. It was found two feet below the surface of the ground and the bones were detached from one another, all however, being of prodigious size. In life the giant, judging from the remains of his framework, must have been more than eight feet tall.

Ancient Human Giant Buried With His Weapons In Bartholomew County, Indiana

Ancient Human Giant Buried With His Weapons In Bartholomew County, Indiana



 The Daily Republican (Rushville, Indiana) January 11, 1906
Giant Skeletons And Copper Implements, Evidence of Ancient Civilization, Unearthed Near Rugby.
   One day last week while making an excavation into the mound-like formation, some farmer near Rugby in Bartholomew county unearthed a number of skeletons of giant size. Buried with the skeletons, were a number of various implements made of copper of curious shapes.

   These remains were taken to Dr. Regenas at Hope, who is an anthropologist and collector of antiquities. He pronounced them relics of the copper age, in the history of ancient civilization in America. Few remains of this character have been discovered in Indiana. Dr. Regenas is having photographs of them taken and is preparing an account of their discovery, which is to be published in a few days.
