The human remains and associated funerary objects were removed from Burlington, Gloucester, and Mercer Counties, NJ, and Chester County, PA. 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 and associated funerary objects. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. This notice corrects the minimum number of individuals and number of associated funerary objects published in a Notice of Inventory Completion in the Federal Register (72 FR 41524–41525, July 30, 2007). [The cultural affiliation determinations made in this Notice of Inventory Completion were subsequently corrected in the Federal Register (73 FR 58625–58626, October 7, 2008, and 77 FR 46120–46121, August 2, 2012)]. Following further consultation and inventory review with the Delaware Nation, Oklahoma; Delaware Tribe of Indians; and the Stockbridge Munsee Community, Wisconsin, the Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology has determined that the minimum number of individuals should be increased by 17 and the number of associated funerary objects should be increased by the addition of two previously unidentified associated funerary objects and four associated funerary objects for which cultural affiliation has now been established. Transfer of control of the items in this correction notice has not occurred. Correction In the Federal Register (72 FR 41524, July 30, 2007), column 3, paragraph 1 is corrected by substituting the following paragraph: In 1879, human remains representing a minimum of two individuals were recovered from an unknown location in Burlington County, NJ, by Michael Newbold during a Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology expedition led by C.C. Abbott. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. In the Federal Register (72 FR 41524, July 30, 2007), column 3, paragraph 2, sentence 1 is corrected by substituting the following sentence: PO 00000 Frm 00058 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 44045 Osteological characteristics indicate that these individuals are Native American. In the Federal Register (72 FR 41524, July 30, 2007), column 3, paragraph 5 is corrected by substituting the following paragraph: On October 2, 1894, human remains representing a minimum of 12 individuals were recovered from the Lalor Field site in Trenton, Mercer County, NJ, by Ernest Volk during a Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology expedition led by Mr. Volk. No known individuals were identified. The six associated funerary objects are one animal mandible with teeth, one notched stone, three stone implements, and one stone gorget. The animal mandible with teeth, notched stone, and stone implements were accessioned into the museum’s collection in 1952 and the stone gorget was accessioned into the museum’s collection in 1895. In the Federal Register (72 FR 41525, July 30, 2007), column 1, paragraph 1, sentence 3 is corrected by substituting the following sentence: The polished stone gorget associated with the human remains, as well as artifacts recovered from the grave fill but not associated with the human remains, including lithic flakes and ceramic sherds, support this date. In the Federal Register (72 FR 41525, July 30, 2007), column 1, paragraph 2 is corrected by substituting the following paragraph: Between 1894 and 1895, human remains representing a minimum of four individuals were recovered from the Lalor Field site in Trenton, Mercer County, NJ, by Ernest Volk during a Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology expedition led by Mr. Volk. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. In the Federal Register (72 FR 41525, July 30, 2007), column 1, paragraph 3, sentence 3 is corrected by substituting the following sentence: The lack of known burials predating the Middle Woodland Period in the area of Lalor Field excavated in 1894–1895, the artifacts recovered from the grave fill but not associated with the human remains, including lithic flakes, bifacial implements and fragments, and ceramic sherds, the positioning of the deceased, and the lack of associated funerary objects support this date. In the Federal Register (72 FR 41525, July 30, 2007), column 1, paragraph 5, the following paragraphs are added at the end of paragraph 5: In 1894, human remains representing a minimum of seven individuals were likely recovered from the Lalor Field site in Trenton, Mercer County, NJ, by Ernest Volk during a Peabody Museum of Archaeology and Ethnology expedition led by Mr. Volk. No known individuals were identified. No associated funerary objects are present. Osteological characteristics indicate that these individuals are Native American. The E:\FR\FM\11AUN1.SGM 11AUN1
