We offer three stories; two are of Wyandot Indians, one known as Leatherlips and the other Bill Moose. Leatherlips, memorialized in stone at Scioto Park, was executed by members of his own tribe in 1810. Bill Moose, born in 1837, grew up a Wyandot, and as an adult worked with Sells Brothers Circus for several years and traveled the world. He was the last of the Wyandots living in Ohio and died a few months short of his 100th birthday.
