1898 Pleistocene of Nebraska

In 1897, Dr. Scheffner of Hay Springs had given a tooth to Mr. Granger, which had come from skull that seemed to be a man. The skull had been found by parties digging a well. Originally it had been in a fair state of preservation, but was subsequently broken up and the pieces carried away by various people. Dr. Wortman and Mr. Grant joined Albert Thomson in Nebraska in 1898, where he was waiting with the outfit. The party proceeded to Hay Springs in an attempted to locate additional human remains, but were met without success.
