Bill to protect American Indian burial sites passes Senate (updated)

State Sen. Wendell Mitchell, D-Luverne, says a pair of bills he sponsored to offer greater protection to American Indian sites in Alabama have passed the state Senate.

If one of the bills becomes law, it would close a loophole in state law that currently allows for the removal of ancient Indian burial sites under certain circumstances. Under current Alabama law, anybody who desecrates graves and mutilates corpses is guilty of a Class C felony, which is punishable by up to 10 years in prison. However, the law sets a different standard for American Indian burial sites.

The current law states that any person who maliciously desecrates an American Indian place of burial or funerary objects on property not owned by the person shall be guilty of a Class C felony. It’s the “not owned” part of the law that has given property owners the final say on what happens to many Indian burial sites.

Wendell said another bill that passed the Senate today would require people removing grave sites to get permission from a local governing body. If it’s in Oxford, for example, permission would have to come from the Oxford City Council, he said.

Mitchell said neither bill has a House sponsor and did not know if anyone in the local legislative delegation was interested in taking up the cause.

Greetings Bill and others.

Levi Crow born 25 March 1782 was probably never in Whitfield Co., GA and probaby died in North East GA on 26 October 1850, as evidenced by his Family Bible pages. His widow, Nancy MNU, did likely die in Whitfield Co., GA after the 7 July 1870 Census, where she was enumerated next dwelling from her son, Wiley and wife Sarah Jane Hickey. Levi born 1782 was not the son, or related to the James Crow you have him attached to here. He was the son of James Crow Sr., born 14 April 1740, unknown where, and died, 19 December 1833, probably in GA. These birth and death dates for James Crow Sr. came directly from his son, Levi Crow’s, Bible pages.

It has now been proven by The Crow(e) DNA Study, that James Crow Sr. born 14 April 1740 is indeed related to Randolph C. Crow Sr. and my GGG Samuel Crow, both born in the 1770’s. Whether James Crow was an Uncle, or father to them, is unkown at this time. It is my opinion, the James Crow Sr.’s son, James Crow Jr., is very likely the James Crow that married Hannah Black in Elbert/Franklin Co. GA, and they left GA for Gibson Co., IN about 1800. I am working hard trying to find a couple of male Crow’s from the James Crow Jr. and Hannah Black Crow line to participate in our Crow(e) DNA Study to prove this connection to our Crows as well.

Kind regards,

Whether James Crow Sr., born in 1740, was an uncle, cousin, or father, to Randolph & Samuel, is unkown at this time.

Experts refute claims in 2nd mound report

Experts refute claims in 2nd mound report

Some experts and academics around the state are disagreeing with a University of Alabama archaeologist’s report concluding a pile of stones in Oxford is a natural phenomenon — not built by American Indians centuries ago.

Kelly Gregg, a Jacksonville State University geology professor who has visited the site located behind the Oxford Exchange, has repeatedly said the stone mound is not natural. He was not dissuaded from his opinion after reviewing the report.(…more)
