Nevada Indian legend of 12 foot red-haired giants that lived in the area when they arrived. The story has the Native American's killing off the giants at a cave. Excavations of guano in 1911 turned up this human jaw. Here it is compared to a casting of a normal man's jawbone. In 1931 two skeletons were found in a lake bed. One was 8' tall, the other just under 10' tall.
In 1950, a man with mutton chop sideburns and 1800-era clothing was seen walking in Times Square. Witnesses said he looked startled and confused; he was hit by a car and killed. The officials at the morgue found a copper token from an unknown saloon for a 5 cent beer, along with a bill for the care of a horse and the washing of a carriage, drawn by a livery stable on Lexington Ave. that was not listed in any address book, and about 70 dollars in old banknotes.

Jeanette "Jennie" Jerome (1854-1921) was one of three pretty daughters of financier Leonard Jerome and his wife Clara. She married Lord Randolph Churchill, second son of the Duke of Marlborough. She had two children, Winston Churchill, the future prime minister, and John. She had many affairs during her marriage, including with King Edward VII. After her husband died, she married a man as young as her sons, which was very shocking for the time. She subsequently married an even younger man.
