In June and November of 1860 respected Licking County, (Newark), Ohio surveyor, David Wyrick, unearthed two stones bearing Hebrew inscriptions. The first was a triangular shaped “keystone” (#2 in photo above) and the second was called the “Decalogue” stone (#1) - encased in a sandstone “sarcophagus” (#3-4) and accompanied by a small stone bowl (#5) nearly the size and shape of Hebrew temple ritual bowls.
The Keystone inscription translates as “The Holy of Holies, The Law of Alahyim, The King of the Earth, The Word of Yahuah”.
Among those also was whats called "The Bat Creek Stone" which had inscribed on it "For Yahudah" one of the 12 tribes.
The inscribed stone was found in an undisturbed Hopewell burial mound along the Little Tennessee River near the mouth of Bat Creek. Additional Hopewell diagnostic artifacts recovered with the stone include bone and wood pieces and two brass bracelets whose metallurgical properties nearly match those of ancient hebrews in the Levant (yasharal) portions of the Mediterranean.
The inscription on the stone was assumed to be “Paleo-Cherokee,” and was subsequently published by the Smithsonian in their Annual Report of the Bureau of Ethnology, 1890-1891 on page 392.
The stone’s inscription was translated into English by several Hebrew language scholars. What was the translation?; ”For the Yahudim,” or “For Yahudah,” a clear reference to a ancient hebrew tribe.
South American Artifacts
In New Mexico a stone was discovered , and on it there is a Hebrew inscription of the 10 commandments. Some other reference material such as the book 'They Came Before Columbus' identifies that there was already a "negroid' people in the Americas according to the accounts of some of the explores with Columbus.
This stone was discovered in a dry creek bed in New Mexico by early settlers in the region. Engraved on its flank is the entire Ten Commandments written in ancient Hebrew script. Hebrew scholars, such as Cyrus Gordon of Brandeis University near Boston, have vouched for its authenticity.
