The human remains represent a single adult of indeterminate sex and were donated to the WHS by the County Coroner Clarence R. Sorenson in 1939. A letter written by John Barr in VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:10 Oct 16, 2017 Jkt 244001 June of 1939 states that the human remains were exhumed by a dentist from New Lisbon at an unstated date from a cultivated field.

In 1980, Dick Robinson, a local landowner, donated to the WHS a box of items that he and his father had collected from the site over several years. In a letter dated December of 1980, Robinson made no mention of having collected human remains, but WHS employees identified three human long bone fragments representing one adult of indeterminate sex. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present.
