Age 7

The Minnesota Woman was the name given to the skeletal remains of a woman thought to be 8,000 years old found near Pelican Rapids. The bones were brought to the University of Minnesota for more study. Later, Dr. Albert Jenks identified them as the bones of a 15 or 16 year old woman. Scientists now recognize the girl as someone whose ancestors were Paleo-Indian and now her skeletal remains have been reburied in South Dakota, not available for further study.
1933 · The Browns Valley Man

Age 9

Just like the Minnesota Woman, The Browns Valley Man are deemed the oldest human remains found in Minnesota. They were found by W. H. Jenson, while he was laying gravel for his driveway, in the Traverse gap in western Minnesota. The remains are believed to be around 9,000 years old.

Name Meaning

1 English: nickname for a refined person, sometimes no doubt given ironically, from Old French, Middle English curteis, co(u)rtois ‘refined’, ‘accomplished’ (a derivative of Old French court, see Court 1).2 English: from Middle English curt ‘short’ + hose ‘leggings’, hence a nickname for a short person or one who wore short stockings. This nickname was borne by William the Conqueror's son Robert, but it is not clear whether it has given rise to any surnames.3 Altered form of French Courtois .
