The human remains were removed from the Parker Farm site, Schuyler County, NY. This notice is published as part of the National Park Service’s administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003 (d)(3). The determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of the Native American human remains. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by New York State Museum professional staff in consultation with representatives of the Cayuga Nation of New York and the Seneca-Cayuga Tribe of Oklahoma. In 1915, human remains representing one individual were removed during sand and gravel mining from the Parker Farm site (NYSM site no. 2190), Hector Township, Schuyler County, NY, by employees of the State Commission of Highways. The human remains were donated to the New York State Museum by Irving J. Morris, Secretary of the State Commission of Highways, the same year. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. At an unknown date between 1915 and 1924, human remains representing seven individuals were removed from disturbed contexts at the Parker Farm site by Perry City town supervisor Dr. J.M. Townsend. Dr. Townsend donated the human remains to the New York State Museum in 1924. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present.
