Right. And Roger's Rangers were an English unit during the F&I War.

One might say they were the inspiration for the Rangers (Darby's Rangers of WW2 fame), but they weren't really the original American Rangers.

it appears he didn't have sufficient body armor either. probably not enough boots on the ground. King George III lied, people died.

So how long does someone have to be buried before it is ok to dig them up?

"You don't just rush out there and start digging because you think it's interesting," said David Starbuck, who spent more than a decade conducting extensive excavations on Rogers Island and at nearby sites but didn't uncover any cemeteries. "It's important to proceed very cautiously."

He's jealous that they were found by a couple of "amatures" and not by a professional like himself. He probably wants to take over the dig.

Interesting displacement of the gonad bones. Wonder how that would be explained. And the final expression, pain?

The militant state academe sent the police in to stop the dig "Because the Fullers aren't professional archaeologists". They [State Museum et al] are so afraid that there will be a find that doesn't fit with "established history", that they will go th any length to control a dig site - regardless of it's private property location.

I have had a personal experience with this - an 11-15KY old stone tool - not flint - along with several others - including a flint/chert mine - that I refuse to give them the location of.

What is it about RIP that some people don't understand? This is a good reason for being cremated. I wouldn't want someone digging me up in a couple hundred years. Go dig up dinosaurs or trilobites if you want to dig up the dead.

Actually, he tried to sell his services to the Americans, but they didn't trust him because he had been loyal to the King during the French and Indian War. The English would not trust him because he had served with, commanded and advocated for, the American Colonists during the French and Idian War. In the end, he was caught between two worlds.

Back to this article. It is my hope that the State of New York or some philanthropist will buy the island and surrounding land and rebuild the actual fort as a historical re-construction at the "Great Carrying Place."

Kudos to owner Nastasi for abandoning development plans and considering a park instead. While there might be some professional jealousy in Starbuck's comments, he does have a point. Congrats to the Fullers for finding the cemetery; now leave it the hell alone. Use ground-penetrating radar to determine its extent and perhaps one or two sanctioned exhumations (with reburial in exactly the same place) to confirm its date, but let our dead rest in peace. I might have relatives buried there!
