MUFON Indiana only recently logged case #32747, but it contained the oldest report in its files.
On October 20, a man submitted an old video recording of his great grandmother and her sisters, recounting the details of an alleged UFO encounter their father, had experienced in the Logansport area, probably sometime in the 1890s.
On the tape, one of the women describes taking food to her father and grandfather in the field one day, when they yelled at her to hide in the woods. They later told her they’d seen a machine fly over the field, and that little people had gotten out of the craft, collected samples of corn and soil, and then departed.
The woman’s father then made her promise never to talk about it.
