Sounds a little curious. It's not like there were tribes living in encampments there 100 years ago....Maybe 300 years...maybe. How did they determine it's origin? Were there other artifacts?

That was pretty much the edge of town back then I think. Perhaps a school teacher or doctor lived (or practiced) there. People probably didn't protest much back then if they used some native American's bones in a disrespectful manner. Racism was common.
