Abstract

This article reports the discovery of bones of a mastodon 83 feet below the surface, about 100 feet from the Mohawk river at a village of Cohoes, near Troy, New York. The Book of Mormon is not mentioned but this and the article following it, “The Mastodon of the Book of Ether” are used to support the Book of Mormon.
