History and Description of the Remains In 1906, human remains representing, at minimum, two individuals (A01030) were removed from Carcajou Point (47– JE–0002) in Jefferson County, WI. The remains were uncovered by a washout in a field and excavated by H.L. Skavlam. When Skavlam donated the remains to the State Historical Society in 1910, the human remains were believed to represent a single individual. However, a skeletal analysis in 2013 determined that the human remains actually represent two individuals, both adult females. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. In 1957, human remains representing, at minimum, nine individuals (1998.60.4, 1998.60.5, 1998.60.7, & 1998.60.8) were removed from Carcajou Point (47–JE–0002) in Jefferson County, WI. The human remains were discovered during an excavation of the Oneota component of the site led by archeologist Robert Hall. Hall donated the human remains to the State Historical Society at an unknown date in the late 1950s, and the human remains were formally accessioned into the collection in 1998. The human remains were determined to represent three children of indeterminate sex, three infants of indeterminate sex, two adults of indeterminate sex, and an adult male. No known individuals were VerDate Mar<15>2010 15:08 Jun 06, 2014 Jkt 232001 identified.

In 1908, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual (A00268) were removed from the Telfer site (47– JE–0937) in Jefferson County, WI. The human remains were discovered in a mound on the property of G.D. Telfer. Telfer donated the human remains to the State Historical Society in 1909.

In 1992, human remains representing, at minimum, three individuals (HP.JE– 0940.1) were removed from the January site (47–JE–0940) in Jefferson County, WI.

Responding officers screened the backfill pile, collected the human remains, and then contacted the State Historical Society’s Burial Sites Office. Staff archeologists investigated and no additional remains were discovered, either in situ or in the backfill pile.

    In 1957, human remains representing, at minimum, nine individuals 
(1998.60.4, 1998.60.5, 1998.60.7, & 1998.60.8) were removed from 
Carcajou Point (47-JE-0002) in Jefferson County, WI. The human remains 
were discovered during an excavation of the Oneota component of the 
site led by archeologist Robert Hall. Hall donated the human remains to 
the State Historical Society at an unknown date in the late 1950s, and 
the human remains were formally accessioned into the collection in 
1998. The human remains were determined to represent three children of 
indeterminate sex, three infants of indeterminate sex, two adults of 
indeterminate sex, and an adult male. No known individuals were 
identified. The four associated funerary objects are two sandstone 
abraders (1998.60.6 & 1998.60.9), a shell gorget (1998.60.10), and a 
ceramic vessel (1998.60. JE2 B2-A2).
    In 1908, human remains representing, at minimum, one individual 
(A00268) were removed from the Telfer site (47-JE-0937) in Jefferson

    In 1992, human remains representing, at minimum, three individuals 
(HP.JE-0940.1) were removed from the January site (47-JE-0940) in

Determinations Made by the State Historical Society of Wisconsin

determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice are Native American based on State Historical Society 
records, location and context of the burial sites, the presence of 
associated funerary objects in some instances, and skeletal analysis in 
some instances.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described 
in this notice represent the physical remains of 32 individuals of 
Native American ancestry.
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(A), the four objects

     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), a relationship of shared 
group identity cannot be reasonably traced between the Native American
