Giants in Ohio: The Hidden History of the Human Race!


I found a unique treasure at the 2009 Mothman Festival at Point Pleasant in, West Virginia while on a trip with my wife. It’s a map of paranormal activity in the State of Ohio called Hidden Ohio. It features Ancient American sites, haunted locations, sacred geography, scenic byways, strange creatures, unexplained mysteries, and unique sites.

It was on this map that I noticed two sites where giant human beings were discovered. One location was just outside of Cleveland, and the other was just south of Cincinnati. The below picture I don’t believe is real, but it gives you an idea. I am currently looking for the private citizens that have these discovered bones. In both cases the bones of the giant humans were 8 to 10 feet tall. Prior to seeing those excavation sites on that map, I had never heard of giant humans in an actual historical sense.

Below is a history of the giant bones discovered in North America. Some of the bones are without question stuck in drawers at museums. But most are in the hands of private collectors. I would love to see them for myself.

Historical North American Giants

1792 New York, Buffalo: Turner’s History of the Holland Purchase reports that 7 and 8 foot skeletons were found at an earthen fort in Orleans county with broad flat topped skulls.

1800 Ohio, Conneaut: Among the normal size skeletons found in the remains of mounds were found gigantic bones. Some of the skulls and jaws were large enough to fit over the head and face of a normal man

1821 Tennessee, White County: An ancient fortification contained skeletons of gigantic stature averaging at least 7 feet in length.

1825 Ohio Valley: David Cusick, a Tuscorora by birth, wrote that among the legends of the ancient people of the stock, there was a powerful tribe called Ronnongwetowanca. They were giants, and had a “considerable habitation.” When the Great Spirit made the people, some of them became giants. After a time, and having endured the outrages of these giants, it is said that the people banded together, and through the final force of about 800 warriors, successfully annihilated the abhorrent Ronnongwetowanca. After that, it was said that there were no giants anywhere. This was supposed to have happened around 2,500 winters before Columbus discovered America, around 1000 BC.

1829 Ohio, Chesterville: In digging away a mound where a hotel was to be built, a large human skeleton was found, but no measurements were made. It is related that the jawbone was found to fit easily over that of a citizen of the village. The local physicians examined the cranium and found it proportionately large, with more teeth than the white race of today. The skeleton was taken to Mansfield, and has been lost sight of entirely.

1833 California, Lompock Rancho: Soldiers digging at Giant Lompock Rancho, California, discovered a male skeleton 12 feet tall. Carved shells, stone axes, and other artifacts surrounded the skeleton. The skeleton had double rows of upper and lower teeth. Unfortunately, this body was secretly buried when local Indians became upset about the remains.

1835 Illinois, Lake County: In the numerous mounds in the county, skeletons ranging between 7 and 8 feet are discovered.

1845 Virginia: A human jaw bone of great size was uncovered in a burial mound on which the teeth stood transversely in the jawbone.

1849 New York: From “Illustrations of the Ancient Monuments of Western New York” comes the report that an elliptical mound above near the Conewango Valley held eight big skeletons. A thigh bone was found to be 28” long. Exquisite stone points, enamelwork, and jewelry were found. Also discovered in the area were a number of other large skeletons one almost 9 feet in height.

1850 New York: From the History of Allegany County in 1879 a report that very large human bones were uncovered during excavation for the railroad

1851 New York: A skull rib bone, and shinbone were found that indicated the height to be over 8 feet tall.

1856 West Virginia, Wheeling: A human skeleton was discovered by labourers while ploughing a vineyard measuring almost 11 feet tall.

1858 Ohio, Vermillion Township: Skeletons of a race of beings much larger than the local inhabitants were discovered.

1870 Ohio: In Brush Creek Township a large mound contained skeltal remains of several humans up to nine feet tall. A large stone tablet with unknown insriptions similiar to Greek writing was also found.

1872 Ohio, Seneca Township: When the “Bates” mound was opened the remains of three skeletons, whose size would indicate they measured in life, at least, eight feet in height, were found. A remarkable feature of these remains was they had double teeth in front as well as in back of mouth and in both upper and lower jaws.

1873 Ohio, Seville: An Ohio Bicentennial Commission historical marker serves as a reminder that the Giants of Seville, Captain Martin Van Buren Bates and his wife, Anna Swan Bates, lived in the village of Seville in Medina County. Anna stood 7 feet 11 1/2 inches tall and weighed 413 pounds. Martin was 7 feet 9 inches tall and weighed 480 pounds.

1873 Washington DC: “The objects here collected which have not been given, or acquired by exchange, have been purchased for the use of the museum by order of the surgeon-general… There is a skeleton of a giant, who, in life, measured seven feet, prepared by Auzoux and mounted by Blanchêne’s method, which, if I may use that term, is really a beauty. It is as white and clean as new fallen snow, and the brass joints and screws which keep it together are bright, and of the latest style and finish.” From the article “The Army Medical Museum in Washington” by Louis Bagger, Appletons’ Journal: A Magazine Of General LiteratureVolume 9, Issue 206

1875 West Virginia, Rivesville: Workmen constructing a bridge near the mouth of Paw Paw Creek uncovered three giant skeletons with strands of reddish hair clinging to the skulls. The skeletons had supported people approximately 8 feet tall.

1876 Wisconsin: Mounds were excavated containing a giant skull and vertebrae.

1877 Missouri, Kansas City: A giant skull was unearthed when mounds wore opened and giant man tracks belonging to humans 25 to 30 feet tall were discovered.

1877 Nevada, Eureka: Prospectors found a human leg bone and kneecap sticking out of solid rock. Doctors examined the remains and determined they were from a human being, and one that stood over 12 feet tall. The rock in which the bones were found was dated geologically to the Jurassic Period, over 185 million years old.

1878 Ohio, Ashtabula County: While excavating the ground for graves, bones were exhumed, which seemed to have belonged to a race of giants. A skull and jaw were found, which were of such size that the skull would fit easily over a large man’s head like a loose fitting helmet, even with the jaw in place. The number of these graves has been estimated to be between two and three thousand.

1879 Indiana, Brewersville: A skeleton almost ten feet tall was excavated from a mound.

1880 Ohio, Zanesville: A skeleton was reported to have been of enormous dimensions found in a clay coffin, with a sandstone slab containing hieroglyphics.

1880 Minnesota, Clearwater: Several giant skeletons were found with double rows of teeth.

1881 Ohio, Medina County: A jawbone of great size belonging to a human being was discovered, which contained eight jaw-teeth in each side, of enormous size; and the teeth stood transversely in the jawbone. It would pass over any man’s face with entire ease.

Why don’t we learn about this in school? That’s another story that I’ve covered elsewhere.


This is what people are saying about my new book–Tail of the Dragon

Just finished the book and am sweating profusely. Wow, what a ride !!!  Fasten your seat belts for one of the most thrilling rides ever in print.

While you wait for Tail of the Dragon, read my first book at Barnes and as they are now offering The Symposium of Justice at a discount which is the current lowest price available.

  1. There have been a number of seven foot to eight foot giants among the early Indian tribes and prehistoric Americans. Some of the Indians say that people in the past were much bigger than today and hunted giant bear, giant dear, and giant buffalo in the past.

    I think the very biggest giants ever found in America were never over 10 or 12 feet, and that is only the very largest possible ones.


    1. “1856 West Virginia, Wheeling:… ploughing a vineyard measuring almost 11 feet tall”. Sure I’ve seen taller vineyards than that!


    2. I have a problem with this picture of a man standing next to a giant skeleton. Look at the shadow of the man and then look for any shadow the giant may cast. The shadows do not match as far as which way they cast. Photoshopped to be sure


  2. Yet all the evidence evaporates and is gone. SOME maybe, but not ALL. Just watch Antiques Roadshow….. people save EVERYTHING.

  4. This is just a fake picture, its confirmed now, i don’t know why the people are running behind this sort of stuff, it look interesting but its proved that human was never taller then the currently occurring human beings on the earth, so whats the point in making all this discussion. Some extraordinary tall people do occur in this age but they are also considered in 99 % case abnormal. According to square cube law human body could not exist if its extraordinary larger.


    1. I know this is not true. The Giants existed. And the people who are trying to prove they didnt i’m sure are the same ones who are covering it up. I’ve traveled the world and have seen these giants in different countries. the caves, their armor, weapons, skeletons. It was thousands of these beings. America does a good job of keep its civilians ignorant and drugged up on sports and sex.


      1. And yet you provide ZERO evidence that you have seen these skeletons, weapons, armor, ect. Saying you have seen something but providing zero evidence yourself or by any other means is not something you can expect others to even begin to believe without anything to back that up. And in what way is asking for proof trying to cover it up? You can’t cover up something when no evidence of that something exists. Id love to believe that giants existed but Ill only believe based on evidence of their existence, not because some anonymous person on the internet claims to have seen something but couldn’t bother to get a picture or other form of evidence of it. So don’t make foolish claims of covering up something that has yet to be proven. And really drugged up on sports and sex is somehow keeping people ignorant to giants existing? How in any reality does that even begin to make sense?


      2. I believe there were giants but this picture wasn’t one of them
        I have a problem with this picture of a man standing next to a giant skeleton. Look at the shadow of the man and then look for any shadow the giant may cast. The shadows do not match as far as which way they cast. Photoshopped to be sure


    2. He said in the beginning that he was just using the picture to give you an idea, but didn’t believe that THAT picture in particular was real.. Maybe read a little?


      1. You believe all that your programming box tells you…especially what comes from the government…. Like going to mars and the moon and the earth is a globe….lol…..and then call others stupid for knowing and showing proof otherwise……you have more faith in crap than it takes to believe in God….who is real and true……it doesn’t take much to realize it either….. Giant are real and proven through God’s word and digging in the earth….which proves God’s word as well….is….hating truth doesn’t make it go away…..God bless


  5. I realize that this rather an old post, but I thought I’d add to the discussion with a little “Bible Talk”. —Genesis 6 1-2, 4 (KJV) “And it came to pass, when men began to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born unto them, That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair; and they took them wives of all which they chose. There were giants in the earth in those days; and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bare children to them, the same became mighty men which were of old, men of renown.”— Now, the word ‘giants’ used here is actually Nephilim in Hebrew, from the root naphal which means to fall; it does not actually mean giant but for this purpose that is almost irrelevant. The Nephilim were giants, ‘mighty men’. If you believe the Bible then realize that it tells us that giants did indeed exist. If anyone was interested in learning more about this subject they should check out Chuck Missler and Mark Eastman’s “Alien Encounters” (it’s available on YouTube


    1. You are right. There is something to that, and the odd proof is everywhere. This is an old post, but it sees 40 to 50 views everyday all by itself, so there are a lot of people out there who are curious about this type of discovery. I had never heard of actual bones discovered until I saw that map of Ohio talked about in the article. Thanks for the link. I’m sure people will enjoy that!


  6. Many of the bones found in the 1800’s were re-buried out of respect for the dead. There is a book out called “Smithsoneon Gate” about the cover-up of many bones in the Smithsonean museums because the existence of giants supports the Biblical model and not the evolutionary model. See also Kent Hovind’s film series at He revealed the location of some of the bones. Also, Ron Wyatt, a Biblical archeologist, had taken some of the most accurate photos comparing finger bones of a giant with those of regular people.


  7. This is all a scam, the picture here was digitally edited for a contest, along with a lot of others around on the web showing the bones or skulls of ‘giants’. Unless that guy is a midget, then these bones are from a guy 24′ tall.

    If you want to believe the Bilbe reference then thats fine, a lot of things in the Bible are taken on faith, but don’t look at this picture as proof, the picture is a scam.


    1. I mentioned in the text that I thought that particular picture might have been faked. But there is evidence of these things, but the bones are stuffed away in private collections. Those need to be placed into the official fossil record. They are currently excluded because nobody knows where to put them as evidence. More at this article.


      1. Still, makes you look stupid putting a fake picture when the evidence is hard enough for people to believe. Only a fool would put a fake picture in an otherwise legit article. Dumb.


      2. That article is almost a decade old. Back then the idea of giant people living in America before European settlement was pretty fringe. These days, its becoming an accepted reality. So pictures and reference material was hard to come by back then. Is it stupid or dumb? You could have made your point better. I guess, thanks for the input. Context is everything.


  8. If you are interested in giant skeletons, there are over 300 Historical accounts in “The Nephilim Chronicles: Fallen Angles in the Ohio Valley.” The Ohio Valley burial mounds and henges are identical to those in England. Symbolism, Sacred Geometry, a Numerology Codex called Gematria helps trace the Giants back to the Biblical Lands and the accounted giants known as the Amorites or Nephilim.

  9. When I was a young man I would visit a small town in Ohio called Miamiville. The quaint village bordered the Western side of the Little Miami River west of today’s I-70 Little Miami bridge about 1 mile. I came across a private museum established by the farmer who owned the museum and surrounding land. I don’t remember if there was a small admission fee or not, but inside the museum I discovered a most amazing exhibit of giant human skeletons.

    The farmer built a barn like structure over an existing indian mound and meticulously excavated the mound. The giant skeletons, male and female, were lying on their backs on a pedestal of unexcavated earth. The female was 7′-6″ and the male was 9′-0″. Other related artifacts were as equally unusual. There were obsidian spear points 20″ long and 8″ wide at the base. Weapons and tools made of copper were present. Very large ceramic pots were also found in the mount.

    I’ve often wondered if that private museum still exists. If anyone knows about this museum please let me know if the museum still remains. I visited this museum several times between the years 1964 to 1966.

    1. IF you look at the photo…just IF you do you will notice that the perspective is off as well as the shadow which is thrown….this is a fake!!


  10. For physical proof of giants go to the Cairo Museum. Simply go up to the second floor and you will see many ancient Egyptian sarcophacus’. Some measuring 11 feet in length and 2 feet 6 inches in width. The department of antiquites doesn’t delve into political correctness. Check it out. I imagine you could have someone photo the coffins for you though cameras are a big no-no in the museum. I have an Egyptian friend you may contact.


    1. Great points. Cracking open those sarcophacus’ very large people are inside. I am still trying to locate the family who owned the little display on the Little Miami River. There’s a good bet those bones are in a private collection in somebodies attic. I just have to figure out who.


      1. Correction! The private museum was on the little miami river where the I71 bridge crosses not in miamiville, sorry.Btw this area is known to be heavy into “witchcraft” so be on guard. I took an interest in bullwhips a year ago…awesome tool in the right hands. It sounds like you are the right hands.


      2. You sound like my kind of guy. If you feel like taking it up again check out my buddy off to the right. He is making some neat whips.

        That sounds like it is right around Morgans.


  11. Nomore. Then a giant ape an picture. U can make the size bigger an make it look.Like a giant human but is a fake the big other


  12. Unfortunately, a lot of these giant bones will never be seen again. The Smithsonian had them crated up and dumped into the sea. Because it goes against their “religion” Darwinism. Beware, remember, nothing is as it seems.


    1. I wish I could dispute you on this, but I can’t. You are most likely right. I don’t know that they were dumped in the sea, but certainly have been placed in private collections where they are not on public display.


  13. How come these bones where not preserved for a Museum? These bones where proven to be from Black people and in OHIO, and other states they where destroyed. This could be one of the greatest find in the history of mankind and they don’t preserve the bones? Very suspicious!!!


  14. Here in Miamisburg, Ohio we have the largest conical mound east of the Mississippi. An archaeologist Because of its conical shape, the type of burial found within it, and the absence of associated earthworks, the Miamisburg mound is believed by archaeologists to have been the work of the Adena (Indian) prehistoric culture. The ancient culture was given its name by Ohio Historical Society archaeologist William C. Mills in 1902 after he had delineated its attributes from excavations on the Adena plantation at Chillicothe of Ohio’s sixth Governor Thomas Worthington. The Miamisburg mound is 65 ft high and 900 ft around the base of the mound. The mound sits on top of a 300 ft bluff. If you climb the 116 steps to the apex of the mound, you can see the entire county of Montgomery and Warren County. Archaeologists did a minimal amount of exploring the contents of the mound. They wanted to keep the probe to a minimum. The site was partially excavated in 1869 when a vertical shaft was sunk from the top to the base, with two horizontal tunnels extending from it. The investigators found one skeleton covered with bark eight feet down; the skull had a large cone shape scalp and 2 rows of teeth. Their foreheads were high and broad, the skeleton measured about 9 ft in high; a second “vault” 36 feet from the top surrounded with logs was discovered. Throughout the vertical shaft various layers of ashes and stones were encountered implying that the Mound was built in several stages. The entire Miamisburg mound has never been systematically excavated. Such a project would take several years of careful, scientifically-controlled work. The Adena peoples were the first to make pottery in what is now Ohio. Adena pots as large as eighteen inches high and twelve to fourteen inches in diameter have been found. They made a wide assortment of tools from bone and flint to assist them in their daily occupations. Their principal weapon was the spear.

    1. Thanks, I did not know about the length of the skeletons they excavated. I know very large people had been discovered adjacent to the mound complex and in a nearby gravel quarry across the river. I have long suggested that a proper excavation of the Miamisburg mound be conducted, but there is no will to explain what’s inside–which is a great shame.
