Five or six feet below ground, two hundred giant skeletons have been unearthed, almost all of them intact in good condition.
Discoveries of the skeletons of a gigantic race often appear in various news and media articles, and therefore we are more intrigued to know to which race the ancient “mound builders” belonged.
About a century ago, an article appeared in The Toronto Daily Telegraph stating that in the township of Cayuga on the Grand River, on the farm of a villager named Daniel Fradenburg, five or six feet below ground, two hundred skeletons were unearthed almost all intact in their bodies. good conditions.
The discoverers found a necklace of beads around the neck of each, stone pipes in the jaws of several of them, and many stone axes and skinners scattered on the earth. The skeletons were gigantic, some of them measuring up to nine feet, and few of them less than seven.
Some of the thigh bones were six inches longer than any unusual human skeleton. The farm had been cultivated for a century and was originally covered with a thick growth of pine trees. There was evidence from the crushed bones that a battle took place on that ground in ancient times and these were some of the dead. Could these be the remains of Indians, or some other race entirely different? And who filled that ghastly well?

Last Wednesday, Rev. Nathaniel Wardell, Messers. Orin Wardell (Toronto) and Daniel Fradenburg, were digging on the latter’s farm, which is on the banks of the Grand River in Cayuga County.
When they got to five or six feet below the surface, a strange sight met them. Stacked in layers, one on top of the other, were about two hundred skeletons of nearly perfect human beings – around each neck was a beaded necklace.
In this pit were also deposited several stone axes and skimmers. In the jaws of several of the skeletons were large stone pipes – one of which Mr. O. Wardell took it with him to Toronto a day or two after this Golgotha was unearthed.
These skeletons are those of men of gigantic stature, some of them measuring nine feet, very few of them less than seven feet. Some of the thigh bones were found to be at least a foot longer than those currently known, and one of the skulls examined completely covered the head of an average person.
These skeletons supposedly belong to a race of peoples before the Indians.
About three years ago, the bones of a mastodon were found buried in the earth about 10 kilometers from this location. The well and its hideous occupants are now open to the view of anyone who wants to pay a visit there.
Some people claim to believe that the Fradenburg farm location was formerly an Indian burial site, but the massive stature of the skeletons and the fact that centuries-old pine trees covered the site go far to refute this idea.
Did Fradenburg and his associates really unearth the remains of an ancient giant race lost in time? If so, where are these discoveries hidden today?
