The human remains were previously at the Grundy County Historical Society. The Society’s records indicate the human remains may have been donated in the 1920s. In 1998, the human remains were transferred to the Illinois State Museum. The human remains belong to a child 3– 12 years old and of indeterminate sex. No known individual was identified. The four associated funerary objects are three round metal brooches attached to a braid of hair and one lot of fabric. The metal trade artifacts and fabric suggest a Late Historic date (ca. 1760– 1820) for the burial.
