Miners’ Express, Wednesday, Jun 09, 1852, Iowa, Page 1
SINGULAR DISCOVERY-We learn from a gentlemen who came down on the Nominee, that a few days since, as Mr. L. W. Lowe, of Columbus, Iowa, was leveling down a small mound in his garden, he exhumed the skeleton of what was supposed to be an Indian, buried in a canoe. There were found with him a small looking glass, a bead bag, and thirty-one silver dollars, wrapped up in a silver handerkerchief. The latest date of the coins was 1836. There was whole in the skull, through the forehead, resembling that made by a bullet. – Advertiser
