Inscription.  

How long ago this resident lived in this area is unknown. The bones were turned up by a plow in a sandy field on the NW 90 acres, Sec. 94, Blk. 4x, Terry County, owned by Winfred and Ellen Tucker. Texas Tech Archaeology Dept. concluded the remains were quite old and were definitely a Native American because of enamel worn off the teeth due to eating food ground on sandstone grinders.

Donated to Meadow Museum in 1976.
 
Erected 2004 by Terry County Historical Commission.
