In August of 1956, two Frederick archaeologists, Nicholas Yinger and Ralph Fout, conducted digs on the site of the old DeFrehn Chair Factory at the mouth of the Conococheague Creek. 
Although the newspapers of the time reported the dig was sanctioned by the Smithsonian, the Smithsonian has no record of the dig or what became of the bones and artifacts. 
Two skeletons were unearthed
