On or about May of 1933, Dr. Woldemar H. Ritter collected cultural materials and four fragments of human remains from the surface and plowed fields of Patterson Farm in Humphreys County, TN. The human remains, along with other cultural materials, were donated to The Charleston Museum by the widow of W.H. Ritter on May 23, 1941. Mrs. Ritter resided in East Hartford, CT, at that time. No other information on the site, or the collecting method, is available. No known individual was identified. No associated funerary objects are present. (Mrs. Ritter donated 35 objects collected from the Patterson Farm property, which The Charleston Museum has determined are not associated funerary objects. They include marine snails, sandstone pebbles, chert flakes and scrapers, and Adena-type knife or spear point, a Palmer-type point, triangular points. Decorated potsherds from the PO 00000 Frm 00061 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Woodland period belong to the Decatur and Harmon’s Creek cultures.)
