Archeologists Find a Pre-Iroquois Village on Estate of Admiral Hanford
Members of the Lewis H. Morgan Chapter, New York State Archeological Association discovered what is believed to be beyond doubt, a pre-Iroquoian Indian village site on the farm of Rear Admiral Franklin Hanford, U.S.N., retired, near Scottsville, Saturday. The site is on the bank of a small creek with the general conditions present that are common to all Indian sites in the way of typography, accessibility to water, and natural adaption to defense. Several interesting finds were made by members of the party who for three hours searched the site for relics and made observations. The artifacts include notched arrow points, skinning stones and many broken fragments of stone implements..
Morgan chapter made the studies at the personal invitation of Rear-Admiral Hanford, who entertained it. A plan for erecting a memorial to Lewis H. Morgan was brought forward for further consideration. A. H. Dewey, president of the association, suggested that this take the form of a huge boulder inlaid with a bronzed tablet setting forth in suitable words the purpose intended and that it be placed on some high knoll in one of the city parks, preferably Highland Park. The plans met with immediate favor and Frank P. Crouch offered to donate the boulder and place it at any point selected. The matter will be taken up with the city
