IMMENSE GRAVE CONTAINING SKELETONS
Of Prehistoric Race of Giants Unearthed Near Pine Grove Kentucky
Measured 12 Feet.
Pine Grove, Ky. Nov. 27.-Evidences of a prehistoric race have been uncovered by Hugh Yates, a prosperous land owner of this country, on his farm, a few miles west of here. While excavating beneath a high cliff on his place, Mr. Yates came upon an immense grave containing a human skeleton. The frame was of giant proportions.
Mr. Yates called in some neighbors, and, armed with picks, they burrowed their way into the side of the cliff and found an ancient sepulcher crowded with human skeletons, some of them larger than the first one. One of the frames measured 12 feet.
Along with the skeletons were found curiously wrought jewels and strange ornaments, while cooking vessels and musical instruments of queer design were unearthed in great profusion. The diggers are still at work and expect to make even more important finds.
More skeletons were discovered in 1923 by Miss Frances Johnson, a fourteen-year-old girl at the Pine Mountain Settlement School who had heard stories of the "Indian Graves" under the cliffs and decided to investigate for herself. The result was the finding of skeletons and artifacts of great age and of considerable archaeological interest.
