We wonder what would have happened to the skeletons. Surely something like this is still either in a private collection or perhaps it's locked away in the Smithsonian. This is a great simple concise article that provides answers to potential questions and opens way for even more. Were these Sasquatch creatures? Did they bury their dead all in the same location? Did they all die at the same time? Or was this a "Bigfoot" cemetery, a place of reverence? What happened to the skeletons? Why were their teeth all intact?
Here is another article. This one is from 1885 in The Daily Evening Bulletin in Maysville, Kentucky. Five giant skeletons are unearthed. One of them has a head the size of a wooden bucket. Pottery, a knife, a pipe, were found long with the skeletons.
