Mohican Artifact Front Page News

Ralph S. Ives, well known Roxbury attorney, found recently near a spring below Roxbury village a perfectly preserved stone hatchet, such as was used by the Mohican Indians who formerly inhabited the vicinity while disputing for territory with the Mohawk tribes.  Mr. Ives, who makes a specialty of gathering Indian relics, recently unearthed a stone drill used by the aborigines.  An Indian village once stood on the flat below Roxbury village and there have been found numerous pieces of Indian pottery.
