  • Notes 

    • Seaton Hill Cemetery N38 16.43 W86 27.2002 Was a Methodist preacher and circuit rider; a veteran of Indian Wars, interpreter at meetings and of treaties between Indians and 'white men', and was fiercely proud to be an Indian. Involved with underground railway, helping many slaves to escape to the North. He was self-educated, well-read, and possessed one of the largest personal libraries in Southern Indiana. He had extensive personal records, photos and genealogical data, particularly concerning his Indian blood, but all were destroyed in a fire that consumed his home. Best described by a granddaughter who wrote, "a tall, good-looking man, dark, with the coloring of an Indian as well as the stature and mien." Buried in Seaton Cemetery, Grantsburg, Crawford Co., Indiana. From Family Trees, Ancestory.com
