1825: Antediluvian Remains

We are informed, that a few days since, while digging for marle some labourers found fifteen or twenty teeth of an unusual size, some of them being several inches in circumference. Other singular bones in a decayed state were met with. This subject merits the attention of the curious naturalist, and we hope will meet with proper investigation. These remains were discovered after removing the earth two or three feet from the bottom of a small pond, which had become dry during the late drought. The pond is situated in the highway, a few rods north of the house of Mr. George Blake, two miles south of this city.

From The Middletown Gazette (Middletown, Conn.), Wednesday, August 31, 1825.
