Regina, you can rest easy. Your due diligence was just fine. You notified a ranger and they brushed you off.

150-year-old bones will not match a skeleton very well after lying in the elements all that time. They may indeed be more recent and bringing them to the attention of the local authorities was exactly correct

The ball is in their court (after their initial fumble).

It's not up to the folks in this forum to chastise or pass judgement after the NPS did...
