In 1985, human remains representing, at minimum, two individuals were removed from the site of Hunter’s Home (in the close vicinity of the Rogers Farm site), located in the Town of Savannah on a peninsular landform overlooking the Montezuma Marsh, in the very southeast corner of Wayne County, NY.

The human remains belong to one adult (40–45 years) male, and one adult of indeterminate age (probably male). No known individuals were identified. The 960 associated funerary objects are 42 miscellaneous lithic pieces of unknown materials, eight decorated incised pottery body sherds, one chert flake, 14 assorted unidentified to species shell, 24 chert pieces, 46 unidentified lithic pieces of unknown materials, 99 plain and incised pottery body sherds, one piece of unidentified glass, 15 plain pottery body sherds, one chert projectile preform, six unidentified faunal bones, eight pieces of chert, 34 unidentified lithics, five unidentified lithic flakes, 26 unidentified lithics, one worked stone, two unworked pieces of shell, seven carbon samples, seven plain pottery sherds, one chert flake, one charcoal carbon sample, two fish bones, eight faunal bones, 34 unidentified faunal bones, one soil sample, eight plain pottery sherds, two botanical samples, two lithic flakes of unknown material, one unidentified lithic piece, one unidentified lithic piece, two lithic flakes of unknown material, 13 plain pottery body sherds, one unidentified faunal bone, one lithic flake of unknown material, one lithic flake of unknown material, two lithic flakes of unknown material, six flakes of unknown material, five flakes of unknown material, two flakes of unknown material, three flakes of unknown material, three flakes of unknown material, two flakes of unknown material, two chert flakes, five flakes of unknown material, four flakes of unknown material, one flake of unknown material, one flake of unknown material, three flakes of unknown material, one chert flake, 37 decorated and incised pottery body sherds, 32 unidentified lithics, 424 possible lithics/rocks, and one bag of dirt mixed with microartifacts.

The materials recovered in the vicinity of the VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:36 Jul 18, 2019 Jkt 247001 site show a wide span of occupation from the Frost Island phase (1500–1000 B.C.), Woodland period (A.D. 1000– 1600), and Contact period (A.D. 1600 to 1700). At an unknown date, human remains consisting, at minimum, of one individual were removed from the Nolan site, located just north of Ledward, in Cayuga County, NY. These human remains were transferred to SUNY Oswego at an unknown time. The human remains belong to one adult of indeterminate sex. No known individuals were identified.

Consultation

    A detailed assessment of the human remains was made by the SUNY 
Oswego professional staff in consultation with representatives of the 
Onondaga Nation.

History and Description of the Remains

    In 1957, human remains representing, at minimum, two individuals 
were removed from the site of Denman's Indian Isle, located on Denman's 
Island at the west end of Oneida Lake, at the mouth of the Oneida River 
in Brewerton in Onondaga County, NY. This site is also known as Smith's 
Island, Baldwin's Isle, Iroquois Isle, and Indian Isle. The human 
remains were acquired during an Archaeological Society of Central New 
York (Auburn) dig directed by Peter Pratt. The human remains belong to 
two adults of indeterminate sex. No known individuals were identified. 
The nine associated funerary objects are one faunal bone, one chert 
projectile point, two plain pottery sherds, and five seed beads of 
unknown material.
    The site is considered part of an Onondaga occupation dating to the 
16th to 18th century based the artifacts recovered, which include seed 
beads.
    In 1977-1978, human remains representing, at minimum, one 
individual was removed from the site of the City of Fulton sewage 
treatment and collection facility located in the Town of Fulton in 
Oswego County, NY. The human remains were acquired during a stage 1 and 
2 survey by Peter and Marjorie Pratt for the City of Fulton sewage 
treatment and collection facility. The human remains belong to one 
juvenile of indeterminate sex. No known individuals were identified. No 
associated funerary objects are present.
    In the vicinity of the site, prehistoric occupation has been 
identified dating back to the Archaic. Known Onondaga habitation nearby 
supports an affiliation of the site with the Onondaga.
    In 1970-1971, human remains consisting, at minimum, of two 
individuals were removed from the Jayne/LaPoint site, on a beach at the 
LaPoint farm near the mouth of the Salmon River and directly south of 
Selkirk Shores State Park in Richland, Oswego County, NY. The site was 
excavated by the Beauchamp Society. The site was discovered when 
seventh grader Joan Jayne found a burial that had eroded onto the beach 
owned by Robert LaPoint. The human remains were removed from two 
separate burials, each one containing an adult of indeterminate sex. No 
known individuals were identified. The four associated funerary objects 
are one piece of unidentified wood, one unknown wooden artifact, one 
soil sample, and one unidentified pottery sherd.
    The Jayne/LaPoint site is a prehistoric fishing camp dating 
primarily from A.D. 1100 to 1450 (Late Woodland period) based on the 
artifacts recovered. Additional, intrusive burials from the 16th and 
19th century are also present. At least one of the 16th century 
intrusive burials (not associated with the main site) was transferred 
to SUNY Oswego.
    In 1961-1962, human remains consisting, at minimum, of nine 
individuals were removed from the Pen site (also known as Jamesville 
Pen), from a burial ground closely associated with Keough Farm Site, in 
Onondaga County, NY. The human remains were acquired during excavations 
directed by Peter Pratt that were sponsored by William Ennis. The human 
remains belong to one adult of indeterminate sex (Burial 1); one adult 
of indeterminate sex (Burial 15); one juvenile (5-10 years) of 
indeterminate sex (Burial 54); one infant neonate (age could be <0) of 
indeterminate sex; one juvenile (1-5 years) of indeterminate sex; three 
adults of indeterminate sex; and one young adult (19-25 years) of 
indeterminate sex. No known individuals were identified. The 89 
associated funerary objects are two unidentified faunal bones, 25 
possible turtle faunal bones, one carnivore tooth, three shell beads 
(possible preforms), one soil sample with tiny faunal bone fragments, 
one rusted metal unidentified object, 55 shell beads, and one 
unidentified faunal bone.
    The Pen site includes both a village habitation and a burial ground 
dating to A.D. 1682-1696, based on artifacts recovered with the burials 
and habitation.
    At an unknown time, human remains consisting, at minimum, of three 
individuals were recovered from the Valley Oaks site, located in 
Onondaga, in Onondaga County, NY. These human remains were transferred 
to SUNY Oswego at an unknown time. The human remains belong to one 
young adult (16-25 years) possibly male (Burial 2); one adult of 
indeterminate sex (Burial 3); and one young adult (14-21 years) of 
indeterminate sex (Burial 4). No known individuals were identified. The 
207 associated funerary objects are one unidentified faunal bone, four 
unidentified faunal bones, 200 unidentified faunal bones, one 
unidentified faunal bones, and one seed bead.
    Valley Oaks is a village habitation site dating to the late 17th 
and early 18th century, based on artifacts recovered from this site and 
historic accounts.

Determinations Made by the State University of New York at Oswego

determined that:
     Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(9), the human remains described
