Ten Burial Mounds Described on Little Turkey Lake in Northeast Indiana



American Antiquarian, 1888
  In the extreme northeastern corner of Indiana, almost due north of the preceding, was another mound of this type. In the southwest corner of Steuben County, on the north shore of Little Turkey Lake, stood a group of 10 small mounds. One of the groups was examined and six strata of human remains were revealed, " distinctly separated by thin strata of earth; the skeletons lay on their backs, extended full length. Neither pottery nor implements occurred with the remains. (Levette, (l),p. 443.)
