POT-O-GOLD

The farm now owned by Jacob Sterner, situated at Confluence, was once the site of an Indian village. Mr. Sterner has unearthed a number of Indian skeletons in plowing, also ashes and traces of campfires. In 1878, as John S. Stanton and John H. Glisan were plowing on this farm, they turned up a flat stone, under which they found an earthen pot, of about a quart’s capacity, in shape and color like a cocoanut. Underneath this was found a human skull. The plowmen thought they had discovered a pot of gold, and were greatly disappointed when they found that such was not the case.
