“The people around the Hebron (Ky.) school house see every few days a wild man in that vicinity. He is seen at the schoolhouse before and after school hours, and as he never visits any house, or even speaks, it is supposed that his food consists of roots, herbs and the scraps thrown away by the children. His clothes are tattered, torn and dirty, and his appearance is not pleasant.” The Steuben (NY) Advocate, January 17, 1883
