A Pre-Columbus Iron Wagon Found in New York

"And they did work in all manner of ore, and they did make gold, and silver, and iron, and brass, and all manner of metals...and of copper. And they did work all manner of fine work."  (Ether 10:23)
 "And I did teach my people... to work in all manner of wood, and of iron, and of copper, and of brass, and of steel, and of gold, and of silver...."  (2 Nephi 5:15)   Between 588 B.C. to 570 B.C.

 Evidence of a Pre-Columbus, Iron Wagon, found in the State of New York.

<< American Antiquities and Discoveries in the West, by Josiah Priest, 1835.

 "A Mr. Thomas Lee discovered, not long since, on his farm, in Tompkins county, in the State of Newyork, the entire iron works of a wagon, reduced to rust."   (American Antiquities and Discoveries in the West, by Josiah Priest, 1835, p. 262)


Does this information about a pre-Columbus Iron wagon prove that the Nephites or Jaredites worked with Iron? 
No it does not.  Because we do not know that the Nephites or the Jaredites made this iron wagon. 
But it does give supporting evidence and proof that there was a group of pre-Columbus people that did work with iron in the Americas as recorded in the Book of Mormon.
