In 1915, “an amateur collector of Indian relics” uncovered a stone-lined cist in “a ruin along Clear Creek east of Camp Verde.” It was described as “a little pocket in the earth walled and covered over with flat rocks.” He thought it might be a child’s grave. But, after removing 15 to 18 inches of loose dirt, he found a “feather cloth” inside of which was a large “oak leaf-shaped” object that was eventually determined to be a meteorite.
