Ancient Native American Burial Ground in Bensalem, PA?

This is in the Cornwells Heights section of Bensalem. In the 1960s, along the creek adjacent to the Ramblers' little league fields, the Wolset brothers from nearby Sunset Lane used to dig forts, some of them pretty deep. This was before the Ramblers moved to this location and the site was woods. One time, they dug up a skelton. The Bensalem police brought in an expert who determined that it was ancient and American Indian / Native American in origin, and that the site may have been an ancient burial ground. A news story at the time appeared in the Bucks County Courier Times.
